    Unveiling James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy”: A Heroic Ensemble Without Batman

    In the realm of DCU movies, anticipation is soaring for James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy,” set to feature an ensemble of iconic heroes, with one notable absence—Batman. As details emerge about this much-anticipated film, fans are eagerly awaiting its release, slated to begin filming in Atlanta come March.

    Taking up the mantle of Clark Kent from Henry Cavill is David Corenswet, poised to introduce his rendition of the legendary superhero to audiences. Gunn’s vision for “Superman: Legacy” promises a roster of beloved characters, with Supergirl set to make her mark before her own standalone movie.

    Recently, Gunn engaged with fans on Threads, unveiling María Gabriela De Faría as The Engineer and addressing queries about Batman’s absence. Gunn clarified that Batman’s omission stems from his absence in the script, disappointing some Bruce Wayne enthusiasts but setting the stage for a diverse array of heroes to shine.

    Here’s a glimpse of the heroes slated to appear in James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy”:

    • Hawkgirl:
      Portrayed by Isabela Merced, known for her role in “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” Hawkgirl brings her Nth Metal-enhanced powers and formidable mace to the fray.
    • Metamorpho:
      Anthony Carrigan, of HBO’s “Barry” fame, steps into the role of Metamorpho, wielding elasticity and elemental transmutation abilities.
    • Mister Terrific:
      Edi Gathegi embodies Mister Terrific, a martial arts expert with a photographic memory, bringing his intellect and combat prowess to the team.
    • The Engineer:
      María Gabriela De Faría transforms into The Engineer, a genius with a liquid body empowered by nanites, capable of shapeshifting and solid object creation.
    • Guy Gardner:
      Nathan Fillion, known for his role in “The Suicide Squad,” takes on the persona of Guy Gardner, a prominent member of the Green Lantern Corps with an arsenal of abilities at his disposal.
    • Supergirl:
      Casting for Supergirl is underway, with Milly Alcock and Meg Donnelly emerging as frontrunners. Set to portray Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El, Supergirl brings her suite of superpowers, including flight, heat vision, and superhuman strength.

    With the ensemble cast primed to bring these iconic characters to life, “Superman: Legacy” promises a thrilling addition to the DCU cinematic universe. As filming commences and the hunt for Supergirl intensifies, fans can look forward to witnessing these heroes unite on the big screen, led by Corenswet’s portrayal of the legendary Clark Kent.
