Superman: Legacy Casts David Corenswet, Rachel Brosnahan as Clark Kent and Lois Lane

DC Studios has knighted a new Clark Kent and Lois Lane. David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan will play the coveted parts in James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy.”

The latest on-screen iteration of the iconic comic book hero will largely be a workplace origin story, Gunn said when he and fellow DC steward Peter Safran laid out their narrative plans in January. Corenswet, who broke out in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series “Hollywood,” will play cub reporter Kent at the fictional newspaper The Daily Planet. Brosnahan will be his coworker and co-lead.

Gunn is directing the project from his own screenplay, based on the character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.  Safran (“Aquaman,” the upcoming “Aquaman 2,” and The Conjuring franchise) will produce.

This is a star-making moment for Corenswet, whose marquee idol looks and Midwestern charm helped him anchor “Hollywood,” where he played an aspiring actor moonlighting as a sex worker in buttoned up 1930s. He earned widespread acclaim for his breakout performance in Netflix’s “The Politician,” as well as the celebrated horror indie “Pearl” from A24. He also wrote, directed and starred in the web sketch comedy series “Moe & Jerryweather.” He will next be seen opposite Natalie Portman in Apple’s “The Lady In The Lake.”

Brosnahan earned an Emmy Award and two Golden Globe awards for her highly praised performance in the title role of Prime’s long-running series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and a 2015 Emmy nomination for Netflix’s House of Cards. She also recently starred opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Lionsgate’s The Courier, and alongside Christoph Waltz and Willem Dafoe in director Walter Hill’s 2022 western Dead For a Dollar.
