Writer-director Gunn, known for Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad, said in a series of previous social media posts that a future Superman movie he has been writing "for a while" will center around "an earlier part of Superman's life."

In April 2023, he teased to Variety, "The next Superman has to be someone who has all the humanity that Superman has but he's also an alien. It's gotta be somebody who has the kindness and the compassion that Superman has and be somebody who you want to give a hug."

Superman is in theaters July 11, 2025.
