Superman David Corenswet Costume Test Images Are Fake

James Gunn has the only pics of the actor.

It’s known that David Corenswet has participated in Superman costume tests as James Gunn said as much, so now images have hit the net, which happen to be fakes.

James Gunn has said David Corenswet tested with a previous Superman suit, and since the actor is 6’4″, the suit didn’t fit him (Cavill is 6′ 1″ / Brandon Routh is 6′ 2″ / Christopher Reeve was 6′ 4″).

Likely photoshopped and/or AI-created fakes

The three images below then hit the net claiming to be of David Corenswet costume testing for Superman: Legacy, but they don’t look good at all and are likely photoshopped and/or AI-created fakes.

Fans questioned Gunn on Threads.

A fan asked, “Hey Mr. Gunn just one question has David Corenswet used the Superman suit on the screen testing? There’s a “leak” in the internet idk if it’s true but if is he looks great as the new Superman.”

Gunn replied, “Glad you think he looks great, but there’s no leak. The only photos taken of David in the Superman suit are on my phone and I’m standing with him.”

It should also be said that Gunn is no dummy and knows how the leak game works, so there is no way he would let legit leaks happen. Check out the images below.

Not what fans are expecting

In related news, it’s claimed the David Corenswet Superman suit isn’t going to be what fans are expecting.

Superman: Legacy flies in theaters on July 11, 2025 and is expected to start filming this March. Also starring in the movie includes Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, and Edi Gathegi playing Mister Terrific. María Gabriela de Faría is also playing The Engineer from The Authority described as a “villain.” Skyler Gisondo is Jimmy Olsen, and Sara Sampaio is Eve Teschmacher. Nicholas Hoult is Lex Luthor. Sean Gunn is playing Maxwell Lord in the DCU, though it’s not clear if he will be in Superman: Legacy. It’s also rumored Supergirl will appear in the film prior to her own solo movie.
