Superman First Look: David Corenswet Suits Up at James Gunn's Upcoming Reboot

In a highly anticipated reveal, director James Gunn has shared the first official image of actor David Corenswet donning the iconic Superman cape in his upcoming DC Universe (DCU) and a reboot of the Superman film series. The photo, posted on Gunn’s Instagram on May 6, 2023, shows Corenswet in a weathered blue suit with the classic “S” emblem over the chest, red boots, and a flowing red cape. The photo is also shared by Corenswet and Superman’s official page.

The image has sparked a heated debate among DC fans, with some praising the comic book inspiration, particularly the return of the red trunks and slight collar reminiscent of the New 52 comic book series. Others, however, have voiced their concerns over the divisive new suit design.

Corenswet, known for his roles in Netflix’s Hollywood series and the slasher film Pearl, is set to bring a fresh take on the iconic character in the upcoming film, titled simply ‘Superman‘. The movie, previously known as Superman: Legacy, is slated for release on July 11, 2025.

The impressive cast also includes Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nicholas Hoult as the villainous Lex Luthor, and a roster of talented actors such as Isabela Merced, Skyler Gisondo, Sara Sampaio, Edi Gathegi, Terence Rosemore, Anthony Carrigan, Nathan Fillion, María Gabriela de Faría, and Wendell Pierce.

The new Superman suit appears to draw inspiration from various comic book eras, including the Kingdom Come storyline and the Golden Age of Superman. The yellow border around the red diamond emblem is reminiscent of Superman’s appearances in the 1930s and 1940s, suggesting that Gunn’s interpretation may blend elements from different eras of the character’s history.

As filming on Superman proceeds, more details about the story, characters, and suit are expected to be revealed in the coming months. Fans eagerly await to see how Corenswet will make the iconic role his own in this fresh take on the beloved superhero.
