    ‘Superman: Legacy’: James Gunn Finds His Superman And Lois Lane In David Corenswet And Rachel Brosnahan

    After looking far and beyond, James Gunn has locked in his casting for Superman and Lois Lane. David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan are the new faces of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU. The recently leaked story suggested these two were the final six candidates auditioning for one of the most iconic cinematic pairings.

    Even with these two crossed off his list, James Gunn’s got work to do. For the part of Lex Luthor, actors and brothers Alexander and Bill Skarsgård are on the short-list. There’s also no word on which members of ‘The Authority’ will make the movie and who will be the actors playing the team members.

Gunn’s story centers around Superman’s heritage as a son of Kryptonian rulers and Kansas farmer parents. ‘Superman: Legacy’ has a theatrical release date of July 11, 2025.
