In a casting coup, David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan secure the coveted roles of Superman and Lois Lane in the highly anticipated film Superman: Legacy.

Following the departure of Henry Cavill from the superhero franchise, the search for the new on-screen power couple was an intense one, with six talented actors vying for the parts, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

Director James Gunn took to Twitter to express his excitement, stating, “Thrilled to have David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan on board! They bring not only immense talent but also genuine warmth to these iconic characters.”

With their incredible acting abilities and undeniable chemistry, Corenswet and Brosnahan are set to soar as the beloved characters, promising a fresh and captivating portrayal of Superman and Lois Lane in this highly anticipated cinematic venture.

Philadelphia-born David Corenswet, 29, has made a name for himself with remarkable performances in the thrilling 2022 film Pearl, as well as Netflix’s acclaimed series The Politician and the captivating miniseries We Own This City. Now, Corenswet is stepping into the spotlight with his first leading role in a major studio film, Superman: Legacy.

Meanwhile, the talented 32-year-old Rachel Brosnahan gained widespread recognition through her role in the hit Netflix show House of Cards, and further captivated audiences as the remarkable leading character in the Emmy-winning sensation The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon.

With director James Gunn taking the reins of the superhero franchise, alongside producer Peter Safran, Superman: Legacy is set to mark the true beginning of the DC Universe, focusing on the titular star’s journey of reconciling his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. Gunn shared his vision for the film back in February, creating immense anticipation among fans.

Scheduled for release in the summer of 2025, Superman: Legacy is a cornerstone of an exciting slate of upcoming movies and TV titles, collectively known as Chapter One: Gods and Monsters. This ambitious project aims to captivate audiences over the next decade, promising thrilling adventures and unforgettable storytelling.

Over the years, only three actors have donned the iconic cape on the big screen, namely Christopher Reeve in 1978, Brandon Routh in 2006, and Henry Cavill in the 2013 film Man of Steel. Cavill went on to reprise his role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

After an extensive casting process, Corenswet and Brosnahan emerged victorious, securing their roles in Superman: Legacy. Their selection came after a riveting screen test, where they embodied the characters in full costume and makeup, impressing the DC Studios co-chairs, as reported by Deadline.
