Let’s have a look at James Gunn’s Tweets:-
Cast of Superman: Legacy and Character Guide
1. David Corenswet as Clark Kent, aka Superman
David Corenswet was confirmed as the cast of Superman: Legacy in June by James Gunn making the announcement. The actor has left behind Jacob Elordi, Tom Brittney, Nicholas Holt, and Andrew Richardson, who were in the talk to grab the role. David will have to fit in the legacy of Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, and Henry Cavill, previous actors who played Superman in the films.
Superman: Legacy will be a story of Superman, who is the embodiment of justice and truth, leading his life as a human on earth in a brutal world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.
2. Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane
Rachel Brosnahan will be seen as Lois Lane. She will play the character of an ace reporter who crosses paths with Clark Kent/Superman. Brosnahan is a well-known face in the industry for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel series and her role as an aspiring stand-up comedian in the Prime Video series. She won Prime-Time Emmy Award for the show and two subsequent Golden Globes Awards for the same.
As Lois Lane, Rachel Brosnahan is a reporter at The Daily Planet and a romantic interest for our Superman. With Clark working as a cub reporter, Lois may start her career.
3. Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl
Isabel Merced, best known for playing CJ Martin in the Nickelodeon series 100 Things To Do Before High School, is all set to surprise us as Hawgirl in the cast of Superman: Legacy.
With Hawgirl’s power of flight, superhuman strength, enhanced healing/regeneration ability, and super-acute vision, knowing what the character will add to Superman: Legacy will be thrilling. Also, it will be a surprise how Isabela Merced portrays the powerful feminine character.
4. Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, aka Green Lantern
Next up in the cast of Superman: Legacy, we have Nathan Fillion playing the character of Guy Gardner, aka Green Lantern. For this project, Fillion will sport Green Lantern’s bowl haircut for the role.
In Superman: Legacy, Green Lantern will be portrayed in a less heroic, abrasive, and somewhat obnoxious manner. It will be exciting to uncover what flavor he adds to the story.
5. Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific
Edi Gathegi, who has played Darwin in X-Men: First Class and Laurent in the Twilight films, will take up the character of Mister Terrific, aka Michael Holt, in the cast of Superman: Legacy.
Michael Holt is rightly called Mister Terrific for being a skilled combatant, one of the world’s most excellent inventors and tacticians, orbited by the floating T-Sphere weapons designed by him. The character will have “Fair Play” written on his sleeve.
6. Anthony Carrigan as Rex Mason, aka Metamorpho
Anthony Carrigan will play the character of Rex Mason, aka Metamorpho. Mason became a Metamorpho by being exposed to a radioactive meteorite that forged a mythical Egyptian artifact. Metamorpho has startling abilities to shapeshift, hyperelasticity, and change his elemental makeup.
Superman: Legacy will be released in theatres on July 11th, 2025. Which character are you most excited to see on screen? Tell us in the comment section, or better, strike up a convo with me on Instagram. Stay tuned to Popgeek for more updates.
