Next Superman Movie Will Restore ‘Truth, Justice, and American Style’ Motto After DC Comics Dumped It in 2021

The next Superman The film to be directed by James Gunn is expected to restore the “American-style” portion of Superman’s age-old motto after DC Comics removed the patriotic segment in 2021.

As Breitbart News reported in October 2021, DC Comics ditched Man of Steel’s “America” ​​replacing it with “a brighter future” by rewriting the original tagline – “truth, justice, and the American way” – to read “Truth, Justice and a Brighter Future.

“Superman’s new motto, ‘Truth, Justice, and a Brighter Future,’ will better reflect the global storylines we tell across DC and honor the character’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world,” explained DC at the time.

James Gunn, the man hired to fix the mess that Warner Bros. has made his DC film universe, seems to be trying to pull Superman out of the Awakening by returning the character’s legacy.

According to Daily mailGunn reverses the comic company’s elimination of “America” ​​and brings Superman back to his roots in the next film, which is slated for release in 2025.

Warner has released a synopsis for the upcoming film that puts “America” ​​in its proper place in Superman’s motto.

Superman: Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas,” the press release reads. “He is the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that views kindness as old-fashioned.”
The move is the best proof yet that Gunn wants to reverse the bad reputation DC’s comic book character movies have earned so far, first by ditching some of the woke aspects of recent comic book debacles.

After all, at the same time DC was ditching the American-style Superman tagline, the company also released a gay Superman comic book that was a complete sales embarrassment. The book was canceled after only 18 issues.

The awakening themes faced major backlash from comic book fans and others, and even caused one of DC’s artists to leave the company and start his own anti-awakening comics. And his new comic went on to rake in $3 million on its debut, proving just how hungry comic book fans are for an unwoke product.

Gunn, recently posted a series of messages on social media explaining his involvement in the world of Superman and confirming that he will direct the next film by bringing it back to his “legacy”.
