    James Gunn Confirms Actors For Green Lantern, Guy Gardner, Hawkgirl And Mister Terrific For ‘Superman: Legacy’

    Superman: Legacy will mark the rebirth of a refurbished DC Universe headed by James Gunn and Peter Safran. The new bosses of the DC Studios have stated that their overall goal is accessibility which allows viewers to go into any future movies and shows without any deep background research regarding it. 

    Recently, ‘Superman: Legacy’ locked down David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively. This is not it, the movie will include a much bigger ensemble headed for the DCU epic. Gunn has now confirmed actors heading the role of Guy Gardner, Green Lantern, Mister Terrific, and also Hawkgirl.

    When a fan asked what pushed James Gunn to include these characters in ‘Superman: Legacy‘, the director replied, “They fit the story I’m telling. Story always comes first”. Gunn told another fan that “Jimmy Olsen will be part of the new film and confirmed that the actors he is casting for this movie will transcend into the other DCU projects”. Another fan asked Gunn to retain the focus on Lois and Clark to which the filmmaker said, “The primary story most definitely revolves around Superman and Lois”.

    Regarding Fillion’s hair, Gunn said, “Giving my old pal Nate a bowl cut might have been my primary reason for casting him”. Gunn also clarified that Fillion’s Green Lantern is Guy and he will play him in all parts of the DCU, including The Green Lantern show which is not separate and part of the same universe.
