James Gunn to stop correcting DC rumors for the time being

James Gunn has long been one to shoot down rumors about his projects, but he’s going to take a break as work starts on Superman: Legacy.

Gunn has been shooting down rumors about Superman: Legacy for some time now, but now he feels it’s time to take a break. Taking to social media over the weekend, Gunn expressed his thought process behind it.

I’m getting barraged with bullshit DC rumors this morning. I’ll just reiterate the general rule not to believe anything unless it comes from me or Peter. But, unless it’s especially egregious, I’m going to slow down on calling shit out. (Sorry, I know, it’s one of my favorite traditions). There are three reasons for this: 1) Some people are making up lies to get attention from me or to get clicks & I don’t want to encourage that. 2) I’ve read a hundred rumors this morning. ONE of them is half-true. So I don’t want to be used as a way for people to throw nonsense at the wall until something sticks. 3) I’m storyboarding Superman Legacy and don’t have time! Have a great day!

Gunn did respond to one more fan asking if he was storyboarding from the first draft of the script. It had been rumored recently that he had turned in the first draft just before the WGA strike began, but he clarified it is “far from the first draft.”

Superman: Legacy is due to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
