DC Studios has bet the farm on James Gunn and rebooting the DC universe. Gunn will write and direct “Superman: Legacy” to kick things off, and a ton is riding on that film.
Naturally, the casting of this film is critical. Many DC fans aren’t happy that Gunn decided to move on from Henry Cavill as Superman.
We now have the highly anticipated announcement of the new Clark Kent and Lois Lane with David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan playing these iconic characters in James Gunn’s film.
Brosnahan is a brilliant choice. She’s beautiful and has the look that makes her an easy fit for the role. Just take a look at the photo above. She was brilliant in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” showing off her comedic skills and boundless charisma. She’ll be a perfect Lois Lane.
As for David Corenswet, we’ll see if he has the gravitas to pull of Superman, but he certainly has the look. Just go to his IMDb page and check out the photos. He’s a dead ringer for a stereotypical Superman, just like Henry Cavill and Christopher Reeve.
We’ll see what happens with “Superman: Legacy,” but DC and Gunn seem to be off to a good start.
