With filming underway, it was only a matter of time until we got our first look of David Corenswet as Superman in James Gunn’s film about the Man of Steel in his new DC Universe. Thanks to Threads, James Gunn revealed the first look at Superman’s new costume. Corenswet, known for supporting roles in TV shows like The Politician and Hollywood, leads the film with a star-studded cast behind him. Superman also marks the first big blockbuster film that Corenswet will lead, which is a big break of a lifetime.

Is Brainiac the Superman Villain?

While not much is known about the plot of the movie, there is a plot line that was released by WB, which reads as Superman embarks on a journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent. With his Kryptonian heritage and human upbringing in question, and judging from the planet getting hit by a pink beam in the background, one could easily assume Brainiac would be the villain, but we won’t know until the film is out in theaters.

Superman also stars Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane and Nicholas Holt as Lex Luthor, with the rest of the cast including Skyler Gisondo (Jimmy Olsen), Sara Sampaio (Eve Teschmacher), Edi Gathegi (Mister Terrific), Terence Rosemore (Otis), Anthony Carrigan (Metamorpho), Isabela Merced (Hawkgirl), Nathan Fillion (Guy Gardner), María Gabriela de Faría (The Engineer) and Wendell Pierce (Daily Planet editor Perry White.)
