“Superman: Legacy” Update: James Gunn Teases Superman’s Costume, Miriam Shor Joins Cast

With the dual strikes now a not-so-distant memory and Hollywood back into the full swing of production, things are moving very quickly on some of the biggest productions out there. And there are few upcoming films any bigger than James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy, the first feature set to spring forth from his new-look DC Studios, which he’s running alongside co-chief Peter Safran. Last week, we learned that Nicholas Hoult was officially cast as iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor, and now, Gunn has given us a few fresh updates, while a familiar face to the Gunn universe has been cast in the film.

First, on the casting front, Miriam Shor has joined the film, having recently played the henchwoman Recorder Vim in Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Details of who Shor is playing are being kept under wraps, but The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Shor has joined the large ensemble, which is headlined by David Corenswet as Clark Kent/Superman and Rachel Brosnahan as intrepid reporter Lois Lane. The cast also includes Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Maria Gabriela de Farîa as Angela Spica/The Engineer, and Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher.

Gunn also took to Threads to share updates on his storyboarding, Superman’s costume, and the film’s score.

“Spoiler??!! Well, probably not,” Gunn wrote in the caption. “I’m constantly drawing Superman Legacy shots and storyboards all over everything. Here’s one I just sent to my department heads to understand how tight a shot was going to be we had been discussing.”

Gunn also revealed that he’s more or less done with Superman’s costume, although he’s making some final tweaks, and that the film’s score is also in tip-top shape.

“The costume is mostly done but we’re still going back and forth on some elements,” the filmmaker said. “A lot of the score – maybe even most of the major themes – have already been written.”

Although no composer has been named for the movie, Gunn assured a fan who inquired about it that the fine print has never stopped him from working on a project.

“(And yes I know that sounds crazy since so much of the score has been written, but when you’re riding the waves of inspiration, what are you going to do? I wrote most of Peacemaker and all of Creature Commandos before I had a closed deal!)

Superman: Legacy is slated to soar into theaters on July 11, 2025
