It seems Head of DC, James Gunn, is still building up the excitement for his upcoming film, Superman: Legacy by letting us in on his processes and inspiration. Yesterday he shared a photo of his office wall featuring the Superman artwork that’s inspiring him, via a post on Instagram.
Gunn had previously said Superman for All Seasons, which is heavily featured in the art displayed, was his main influence. Here’s what he wrote:
Just received this stunningly gorgeous Absolute edition of Superman for All Seasons, one of my favorite Superman storGunn previously shared that Superman for All Seasons, which is featured in the artwork, was his main influence. He shared on social media:ies & a huge influence on Legacy (& a strangely perfect bookend with All-Star Superman). The late, great Tim Sale’s artwork & Bjarne Hansen’s watercolor work have never looked better – nor have Clark & Ma & Pa. Jeph Loeb’s elegant, confident story still sings.
So, it bears a certain logic that if you want a better idea of what Gunn is working on right now, check out Superman for All Seasons. It’s very much early coming-of-age Superman adventures, like leaving Smallville in favour of Metropolis, and fighting Lex Luthor.

There’s also this official description of Superman: Legacy:
Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.
Sounds good to me!
