Upon receiving a question from a fan inquiring about the image’s details, Gunn provided additional information. “The camera is moving back with the character. For me, the full arrows are camera movement, the thin arrows are subject movement.”

While the film’s plot remains shrouded in secrecy, casting developments have gained momentum after the recent actors’ strike resolution.

Moreover, this gesture underscores the director’s commitment to share information as soon as it becomes available. Little by little, we are learning more details. However, the mystery surrounding the film’s musical score adds an extra layer of anticipation for fans eagerly awaiting Superman: Legacy.

“I have to check,” he said. “(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!)

The release date for Superman: Legacy is July 11, 2025.
