It’s a bird…. It’s a plane…. It’s another Superman. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. and DC Studios have found their next Clark Kent and Lois Lane in David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan, who are set to star in James Gunn’s forthcoming reboot of the superhero franchise, Superman: Legacy.
The pair was reportedly chosen after an exhaustive months-long search, which included multiple rounds of audition tapes and culminated in an in-person screen test for Gunn, who’s writing and directing the film, and co-CEO of DC Studios, Peter Safran. Other actors who reportedly made it to the final round of screen tests—which took place over two days and involved full costume and makeup—included Nicholas Hoult and Tom Brittney for Clark Kent and Emma Mackey and Phoebe Dynevor for Lois Lane. At the end of the day, Gunn and Safran went with Corenswet and Brosnahan.
Gunn confirmed Corenswet and Brosnahan’s casting in a tweet. “Accurate!” he wrote. “They are not only both incredible actors, but also wonderful people.” Last year, Gunn announced that he was penning a new Superman script about Clark Kent’s younger days. Shortly after Gunn’s announcement, Henry Cavill, who played Superman in three Zack Snyder films between 2013 and 2021, announced that he would no longer be donning the red cape. “The changing of the guard is something that happens. I respect that,” Cavill wrote in an Instagram post. “James and Peter have a universe to build. I wish them and all involved with the new universe the best of luck, and the happiest of fortunes.”
Superman: Legacy will mark the first major leading role in a studio film for Corenswet, who has starred in television shows including Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood and The Politician, and more recently, in the indie film Pearl opposite Mia Goth. Brosnahan recently wrapped up her Emmy-winning turn as Midge Maisel on Amazon Prime’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel after five seasons, and is currently starring on Broadway in The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window with Oscar Isaac.
Other major roles, including Superman’s archnemesis, Lex Luthor, and Kent’s friend, Jimmy Olsen, have yet to be cast. Per Deadline, Superman: Legacy will follow Superman’s quest “to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas.” Superman: Legacy is expected to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
