Some fans have expressed concern that James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy would be similar in tone to his Marvel films, but it looks as though those concerns can be set aside.
Despite now being co-chair of DC Studios with Peter Safran, Gunn still has one Marvel Studios project left to promote. He is currently out on the promotional circuit for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and that included a stop by Rolling Stone. Gunn discussed that there were lessons he learned from his time with Marvel that would transfer into his time at DC, but it wouldn’t be anything specifically in Superman: Legacy.
“I learned so much from making these movies,” said Gunn. “But it’s not like Superman is going to have exactly the same vibe as a Guardians movie. It’s actually quite different.” He was asked if fans’ love for Rocket might make him consider using Krypto in his film. “I think I would have an interest in a live-action Krypto whether or not I had anything to do with Rocket,” he responded with a laugh said the interviewer.
It was revealed some time ago that Gunn had actually started writing Superman: Legacy prior to his being appointed as the head of DC Studios. At the time a director had not yet been chosen, but it was then confirmed in March that Gunn would be taking on the duties himself.
At this time Gunn has confirmed that no one has been cast in the film, but he is making lists of actors he would be interested in seeing for all of the parts.
