In January, Gunn announced his ten-year, two-chapter plan for the DC Universe. Gunn explained it The lightning will “reset everything,” though he didn’t elaborate on how. The lightning is set to be followed by Blue Beetle and Aquaman 2which Gunn noted would lead into the first of the DCU’s upcoming two chapters titled “Gods & Monsters,” which starts with 2025’s Superman: Legacy.

He’s the writer and director of the Superman movie and he’s kind of a creative force. behind all of this, him and Peter Safran. And he reached out to a group of screenwriters and myself, amazing, amazing… whose names he’s put out there, to work on making these movies and TV series as good as they get.”
Gunn himself later confirmed his role in the film, as well as the film’s release date, writing, “Yes, I’m directing Superman: Legacy, which comes out July 11, 2025. My brother Matt told me when he saw the release date he started crying. I asked him why. He said, ‘Dude, it’s dad’s birthday.’ I didn’t realize that”. I lost my dad almost three years ago. He was my best friend. He didn’t understand me as a kid, but he supported my love of comics and my love of movies, and I didn’t want to make this movie now without him.”
