Where's an old-timey phone booth when you need one?

The first cast photo of Superman: Legacy is officially out, regretfully without any spandex, capes, or superbriefs. Still, it was a pretty exciting image, posted today on director James Gunn's Instagram. Along with the photo, Gunn explained that a table read of the film had just wrapped, and listed the character's names in the order their actors were arranged. Check out the post below:

While the civilian clothes are no doubt a disappointment for fans hoping for costume reveals, it's at least heartening to see that Lex Luthor actor Nicholas Hoult has gone fully bald for his portrayal of the corporate megalomaniac.

Whether Anthony Carrigan is dying his skin gray to portray Metamorpho is still unconfirmed.
