Director James Gunn revealed a month ago that emerging US star David Corenswet will be the latest actor to portray Superman’s character.
The 29-year-old, well known as the star in the Netflix series “Hollywood,” will play the legendary character in Warner Bros.’ “Superman: Legacy,” which will be released in 2025.
Various Hollywood trade sites first reported the news, which also stated that Rachel Brosnahan, star of the multiple Emmy-winning comedy “The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel,” is set to portray Lois Lane.
The next Man of Steel film, written and helmed by Gunn himself, has begun to gear up to be nothing short of a must-see based on the talent involved. Metamorpho (Anthony Carrigan), Mister Terrific (Edi Gathegi), and, of course, Lois Lane (Rachel Brosnahan) will appear in the film, with David Corenswet as Superman. The news that the “Pearl” and “We Own This City” star has been selected for the part is still relatively new, however, fans are already imagining what he may look like in red and blue.
Instagram user @spdrmnkyxxiii, for example, has created a stunning piece of art featuring Corenswet in a Superman outfit.
Their portrayal of David Corenswet in red, blue and yellow Superman outfits sitting on top of a tall building to keep a vigilant eye on the city, as seen above, seems extraordinary. The use of the tagline “You’ll Believe a Man Can Fly”, which was also used for the revolutionary 1978 film “Superman”, is also a great touch. Based on this fan art, it’s evident that signing David for “Superman: Legacy” was a wise decision by James Gunn and Peter Safran.
