As production gets underway, James Gunn has announced a slight change in title for his upcoming ‘Superman’ offering, changing it from ‘Superman: Legacy’ to just plain and simply ‘Superman.’

Taking to his Instagram to make the occasion, Gunn stated;

“Overjoyed to be announcing the start of principal photography on SUPERMAN today, February 29, which just so happens to be – coincidentally and unplanned – Superman’s birthday.

When I finished the first draft of the script, I called the film Superman: Legacy.  By the time I locked the final draft, it was clear the title was SUPERMAN.  Making our way to you July 2025.”
