British lenser Henry Braham has been set as cinematographer for “Superman Legacy” according to the film’s director and DC Studios co-chief James Gunn.
Braham previously worked with Gunn on both “The Suicide Squad” and the two “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequels. In a posting on Threads, Gunn says he just flew home from a trip scouting locations with Braham for the movie.
The news comes ahead of production kicking off on the movie which begins its shoot in March ahead of a July 2025 release.
Braham began his career working on British music icons The KLF’s road movie “The White Room” before becoming Kirk Jones’ go-to lenser on films like “Waking Ned Devine” and “Nanny McPhee”.
He won an Emmy award for his work on the mini-series “Shackleton” and served as director of photography on such studio films as “The Golden Compass,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” and last year’s “The Flash”
Braham’s most recent work was on two upcoming Doug Liman features – the Jake Gyllenhaal-led remake of “Road House” for Amazon, and the Casey Affleck and Matt Damon-led heist film “The Instigators”. Both of those are in post-production.
