James Gunn’s recent Superman logo post raised questions about the DCU movie’s logo.

DC Universe fans have speculated about whether this logo will also appear in the upcoming DC movie.

James Gunn sparks DC Universe speculations by sharing a cryptic Superman post on his social media pages. David Corenswet’s Superman movie is currently one of the most highly-anticipated projects from DC Studios, as the Man of Steel is close to being back on the big screen. Even though Superman is not set to release for over a year, DC Universe fans are keeping an active eye on Gunn’s social media updates, as the DC Studios co-CEO tends to share teases and cryptic information about the new franchise.

As Gunn’s Superman movie is still in production, Corenswet’s full costume has yet to be revealed. While the filmmaker isn’t showing it anytime soon, Gunn made a post on his Instagram account over the weekend, sharing an image of the Golden Age Superman logo.

While Gunn didn’t attach any captions to it, the post did lead to speculation about whether the logo is related to the Superman film somehow, especially as the DC hero going through logo changes during his first movie would make sense on a narrative level. It’s also possible that Gunn made the post in light of Superman’s 86th anniversary this past week.


10 Missing Superman Villains The DCU Can Adapt To Live-Action For The First Time

Several classic DC Comics villains are still to be depicted in live-action but would be ideal antagonists in the DCU’s Superman movie and beyond.

While time will tell whether or not Gunn’s latest Superman social media post has anything to do with the DC Universe movie, it begs the question if Corenswet’s Clark Kent will be donning multiple versions of the symbol. Even though Gunn has stressed that Superman will not be an origin story, Corenswet’s Man of Tomorrow will still be in his early days as a superhero. However, that couldn’t mean that Clark hasn’t already been doing heroic deeds during his upbringing.

One possibility of working in the Golden Age logo for Superman is if that was his first — or one of his first — logos as a superhero. A fun scenario would be if Clark operated as Superboy during his teenage years before he became Superman in Metropolis, as he was in the comics. There are bound to be flashbacks of Clark’s childhood and having him in a proto-Superboy costume in some capacity would also be new for Superman live-action movies, as the Superboy angle hasn’t been explored cinematically.

It’s possible Gunn was just having fun with his followers by sharing that image to get a conversation going, which clearly worked. But knowing how comic book passionate the DCU co-CEO is, it wouldn’t be shocking if that traditional logo somehow makes its way into the film. Hopefully, as the Superman principal photography continues, more glimpses of the DC Universe installment will emerge sooner rather than later.

Superman (2025)

Written and directed by James Gunn, Superman is the first movie in Warner Bros.’ rebooted DC Universe to center around the titular comic book hero. It introduces a new version of the Man of Steel after Henry Cavill’s departure from the role, honoring the character’s roots as “the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way.”
