James Gunn allegedly bringing Jon Kent in Superman: Legacy

With the revelation of James Gunn’s initial plan for his envisioned DCU, fans are trying to connect every possible dot and predict the upcoming future of this brand-new DC universe. And following the speculations surrounding the DCU, many have come to believe that James Gunn is bringing Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s biological son Jon Kent in Superman: Legacy because of the following factors.

One factor which implies the above possibility is the title itself, Superman: Legacy, as many believe that the Legacy factor will revolve around Clark Kent’s young son Jon Kent. And with James Gunn confirming that this will not be an origin story of Superman, fans believe that Superboy will get a chance to shine in the new DCU.

Another important factor that teases this possibility is the upcoming movie The Brave and the Bold, which will follow a seasoned Batman with his adolescent son Damien Wayne. And according to comics, Damien Wayne and Jon Kent are best buddies and so it makes sense that the upcoming DC universe may revolve around the descendants of the World’s finest.

At the present, The Suicide Squad director has been pretty vague about his upcoming depiction of Superman and the speculations about Jon Kent’s arrival in the upcoming movie might be a little far-fetched. But considering James Gunn and his eccentric approach to crafting a cohesive narrative for the DCU, it might not be far from the truth.

Superman: Legacy will hit theatres on 11 July 2025.
