James Gunn's Super-plan has clearly evolved as he's been busy writing the script and preparing to make Superman: Legacy, his first project for the comic book movie universe that he runs with Peter Safran under DC Studios for Warner Bros. Gunn marked Superman's birthday (February 29) to announce that the new movie will actually be called simply Superman.

As part of his Threads post announcing the change, he also posted a first look at the insignia from the chest of his chosen Superman, with David Corenswet playing the character in this incarnation. The new symbol is inspired by artist Alex Ross' art.

Superman's cast also includes Rachel Brosnahan (Lois Lane), Nicholas Hoult (Lex Luthor), Skyler Gisondo (Jimmy Olsen), Nathan Fillion (Guy Gardener), Isabela Mercad (Hawkgirl), Anthony Carrigan (Metamorpho), Terence Rosemore (Otis), Edi Gathegi (Mister Terrific), Sara Sampaio (Eve Teschmacher) and María Gabriela de Faría (Angela Spica/The Engineer). Gunn's brother Sean will show up as the villainous Maxwell Lord, while there are reports of a cameo by Milly Alcock as the freshly minted Supergirl ahead of her own film.

The new last son of Krypton will fly onto screens on 25 July next year.
