While some of the cast members for ‘Superman: Legacy’ haven’t been revealed yet we know plenty about the main cast. So far, the main cast consists of David Corenswet, who will portray Clark Kent/Superman. Rachel Brosnahan takes on the role of Lois Lane, while Isabela Merced is set to play Hawkgirl. Edi Gathegi will depict Michael Holt/Mister Terrific, and Nathan Fillion will bring to life Guy Gardner/Green Lantern. Anthony Carrigan is cast as Rex Mason/Metamorpho, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/Engineer, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor. Sara Sampaio is set to portray Eve Teschmacher, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, and Sean Gunn will appear in a role that is yet to be confirmed.

Rachel Brosnahan and Corenswet were revealed fairly early, while the SAG-AFTRA strike was still ongoing, and now that the strike has been over for some time and the production of ‘Superman: Legacy’ is about to start, Brosnahan couldn’t wait to spill some beans regarding both her preparation for the movie and the preparation of Corenswet for the role of his life, the one of Clark Kent.

At the Critics Choice awards, Rachel Revealed that Corenswet was doing fight training in Atlanta at the moment, and while she didn’t get the opportunity to show off her guns, she offered some insight into what we can expect from her own take on Lois Lane. Brosnahan revealed that she is preparing for the role intensely, taking advice from her journalist friends regarding what takes place in the newsroom. She also revealed that she will be putting a unique spin on the character while remaining faithful to the source material. We can expect Rachel’s Lois Lane to be feisty and marvelous.

Brosnahan: We’re excited to both put our own spin on things, but also honor this material that we all love so much.
Interviewier: Any adjectives to describe your Lois Lane?
Brosnahan: ooh, feisty, dare I say, marvelous, and fiercely intelligent.

The upcoming film, ‘Superman: Legacy,’ directed by James Gunn and produced by Peter Safran, explores a younger version of Superman as a reporter.

Gunn, who became co-CEO of DC Studios in November 2022, prioritized Superman, leading to the announcement of a new film with a release date of July 11, 2025.
