LEGACY Director James Gunn Shares Photo From The Set; Nathan Fillion Spotted In Background

Superman: Legacy is scheduled to begin shooting in Atlanta very soon (early March, last we heard), and director James Gunn has taken to Instagram to share the first photo from the set (well, just outside the set).

There’s nothing too revealing here, as Gunn is simply showing Peacemaker actors Freddie Stroma and Jennifer Holland (“no, they’re not in the movie”) around, but if you look closely, you’ll spot another familiar face in the background: The Suicide Squad‘s Nathan Fillion, who will play Green Lantern Guy Gardner in the DCU reboot.

Fillion is not in-costume (obviously), and doesn’t appear to be sporting Gardner’s signature bowl hairstyle. There’s plenty of time for a haircut, of course, and Gunn has previously assured fans that his old friend would don Guy’s comic book ‘do.

There’s some speculation that Rachel Brosnaham might be standing to the left of the photo but it’s very difficult to tell.

Superman: Legacy will also star David Corenswet as Clark Kent/Superman and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, along with Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

More recently, Sara Sampaio signed on to play Lex’s assistant/lover Eve Teschmacher, and Skyler Gisondo has been cast as Jimmy Olsen.

Members of the anti-hero team The Authority are also expected to appear, and María Gabriela de Faría (Animal Control) has been cast as Angela Spica/The Engineer.

Milly Alcock’s Supergirl is also rumored to make her debut ahead of her own Woman of Tomorrow movie, but that’s yet to be confirmed.

We’re still not sure exactly how these other superheroes will factor into the story, but Gunn has previously revealed that Superman’s dual-life as both Clark Kent and the Man of Steel will be explored in the film, suggesting that these characters will be his “super friends.” Whether they’ll be part of an actual team or not remains to be seen.

“Superman: Legacy is the true foundation of our creative vision for the DC Universe. Not only is Superman an iconic part of DC lore, he is also a favorite character for comic book readers, viewers of earlier movies, and fans around the world,” said Gunn during the DCU slate announcement. “I can’t wait to introduce our version of Superman who audiences will be able to follow and get to know across films, movies, animation and gaming.”

Production is reportedly scheduled to get underway this March.
