With in-person screen tests set to take place, DC Studios Co-CEO and ‘Superman: Legacy’ director James Gunn appears to be closer than ever to finding the actors who will play Clark Kent and Lois Lane in the film.
Nicholas Hoult, David Corenswet, and Tom Brittney are expected to test for the role of Clark Kent/Superman, according to Deadline. According to the publication, Emma Mackey, Rachel Brosnahan, and Phoebe Dynevor are expected to audition for the role of Lois Lane.
Some of the test deals have reportedly yet to close and are still being negotiated, but these are the names that are currently expected for the auditions.
Given that Clark Kent has played a significant role in the DC Universe for over 80 years and has undergone numerous iterations and adaptations in a variety of media, Superman: Legacy is a highly anticipated project.
The upcoming DC film promises to show how difficult it was for Clark Kent to maintain his dual personas of Superman and Clark Kent while battling evildoers and defending the world. It’s a risky move that could give the character new life and win over a new audience by emphasizing his early years in the industry.
The film will not only focus on the main characters but will also introduce new faces to James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe. According to reports, Legacy will feature a slew of established DC Comics characters.
‘Superman: Legacy’ is set to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
