What If That Isn’t Actually Superman? (Hear Us Out…)


A burnt suit can’t be the only thing to get a «Superman» movie fan theory going, so let’s examine some of the lighting around David Corenswet in James Gunn’s photo. That pink energy ray outside reflects on the walls and floor of the room Superman is in, and it almost has a pink and purple hue to it. While Superman mostly rocks blue and red in his costume, Bizarro’s suit has purple and indigo. The lighting in the room possibly hints that another character tangential to Superman could make their way into the film.

Superman’s suit has the iconic «S» on it, but if you flip the image horizontally, one could argue that the specific S-shape looks more like a «2.» This is significant due to Project 2 in «All-Star Superman,» written by Grant Morrison with art from Frank Quitely. Project 2 was a procedure to clone Superman more successfully than previous attempts ending with Bizarro. This ultimately leads to the creation of Superman 2, who’s a hero in the DC universe. Gunn previously hinted that «All-Star Superman» may have inspired parts of his upcoming take on the character, so it may not be out of the question if cloning Superman in some manner plays a role in the story. 

Finally, that giant orb in the picture could be the villainous artificial sun, Solaris, which is also in «All-Star Superman.» It’s possible Gunn took elements from that storyline to create a wholly original tale but one that still incorporates cloning somehow. It’s a long shot, but until «Superman» comes out on July 11, 2025, there will probably be even wilder fan theories than this emerging.
