James Gunn Teases “Superman: Legacy” Set in Photo With “Peacemaker” Cast

James Gunn gave two of his Peacemaker stars, Freddie Stroma and Jennifer Holland, a little tour of the lots where he’s set to start shooting a small indie film he’s working on that you might have heard about—Superman: Legacy. 

Okay, while not technically an indie (not even remotely close), Legacy is the first big feature film slated to kickstart the new-look DC Studios, being led by Gunn and his co-chief, Peter Safran. The casting process has been long, with lots of incredibly talented performers vying for roles that they are well aware could change their lives. Now that Gunn’s got his Superman (David Corenswet), his Lois Lane (Rachel Brosnahan), his Lex Luthor (Nicholas Hoult), his Supergirl (Milly Alcock), his Hawkgirl (Isabela Merced), his Guy Gardener (Nathan Fillion), his Jimmy Olsen (Skyler Gisondo), his Metamorpho (Anthony Carrigan), and his Mister Terrific (Edi Gathegi), cameras are getting ready to roll. (There are more—his brother Sean Gunn will play Maxwell Lord, María Gabriela de Faria will play the Engineer, and Sara Sampaio will play Eve Teschmacher.)

Production on Legacy is slated to start on Warner Bros and DC Studios’ lots in Atlanta, where Gunn took Stroma and Holland for their set tour. While the image is really just the three of them standing in front of some sound stages, it further cements just how close Gunn is to principal photography on the film, especially considering reports that there have been recent table reads.

While Holland and Stroma’s work in Peacemaker and on other DC Extended Universe projects was under the previous leadership at DC Studios, Peacemaker will continue into the new era. Although Gunn promises us in the caption to his Instagram photo that the pair are not in Superman: Legacy, who knows where they might find themselves on future DC projects.

Check out Gunn’s Instagram post below. Superman: Legacy is set to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
