Filmmaker James Gunn has announced that pre-production on Superman: Legacy has officially begun. Sharing the news via his social media pages, the filmmaker posted a picture of the script which he wrote, but it only showed the cover page. “I’m honoured to be a part of the legacy. And what better day than #SupermanAnniversary Day to dive fully into early pre-production on #SupermanLegacy?” he wrote in the caption, adding, “Costumes, production design, and more now up and running.” On Twitter, Gunn also engaged in a conversation with fans who wondered who gave him notes on the script if he, at the same time, is the co-head of DC Studios.

“Listening to constructive criticism is the lifeblood for any writer,” he responded to the question, reports aceshowbiz.com. “So as the head of DC Studios, I give the script to people I trust (like my exec Chantal Nong or DC comics writer @TomKingTK) and get their thoughts about what works well and what could work better so I can improve the script,” he explained. “I’ve always tried to take the notes that will actually make the film better and I argue about the ones I think won’t work.” Gunn went on: “This process has worked for me because I have been blessed in the partners I’ve chosen to work with”
“- we are all moving towards one thing: making the movie better. And I can put my ego aside and be open when I need to be and convincing when I need to be. I KNOW this is not the case for everyone (and it wasn’t always the case for me as a writer),” the 56-year-old noted. “Again, I’m blessed in this way. But that’s how notes work, and I’m not going to suddenly stop taking them because I’m the head of a studio. #writing #SupermanLegacy.” James Gunn Reveals Zack Snyder Contacted Him to Express Support About His DC Slate, Calls the Director ‘a Great Guy’.
