Auditions for Superman: Legacy
According to recent reports, Nicholas Hoult, Rachel Brosnahan, and David Corenswet are among the actors rumored to be auditioning for roles in the upcoming Superman: Legacy film. James Gunn, the film’s director, has declined to confirm or deny reports regarding its cast and has stated that only one individual has been cast so far.
Corenswet is said to be among the top contenders for the role of Clark Kent himself, and our sources suggest that he has advanced to the screen test stage, which is scheduled to take place after Memorial Day or in early June.
Actors Considered for Superman Role
Other actors who have been considered for the role of Superman include Jacob Elordi, Tom Brittney, and Andrew Richardson, although it’s been reported that Elordi never submitted himself for consideration. Nicholas Hoult had initially been considered for Matt Reeves’ forthcoming Batman film; now, according to Deadline, he may play either Lex Luthor or Clark Kent instead.
Gunn is reportedly reaching out to A-list talent he’s worked with in the past for the role of Lex Luthor, and the part has been labeled ‘Apex,’ possibly referencing the superpowered character from the comics.

Several actresses have been considered for the role of Lois Lane, including Emma Mackey, Phoebe Dynevor, and Samara Weaving, but sources suggest that Rachel Brosnahan gave an outstanding audition. However, at 32, she may be older than the character’s intended age range.
Brosnahan recently addressed these rumors on The View, reminding viewers to be wary of anything found online, but expressing that playing famous reporter would be “extraordinary”.
