The moment DC fans have all been waiting for is here at last. Behold the first look at David Corenswet as Superman from James Gunn himself.

The director and co-head of DC Studios took to Instagram to reveal Corenswet in the Kryptonian threads long before leakers got chance to take a hold of it.

Fans have been asking whether or not Kal-El will don the red trunks ever since we found out about James Gunn putting his contemporary spin on the Man of Tomorrow. Now that question has finally been laid to rest.

The suit is different from what one may expect. It looks homemade while being something you won’t necessarily find on Earth, which I believe is the aesthetic the costume designer intended. Co-head Peter Safran spoke about how the film deals with Superman reconciling his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing.

“It focuses on Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way. He is kindness in a world that thinks that kindness is old-fashioned.”
