According to the report, Gunn, the writer-director of Superman Legacy in addition to the co-president of DC Movies, spent the previous weekend doing display screen exams with six actors in three predetermined pairs to play Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane, all of whom we’ve already heard about: Nicholas Hoult and Rachel Brosnahan; Tom Brittney and Phoebe Dynevor; and David Corenswet and Emma Mackey. That was Saturday. Sunday, the three males (Hoult, Brittney, and Corenswet) got here again and did extra scenes with Mackey solely. The auditions have been filmed, edited, and are being considered by Warner Bros. executives this week. (Sure, together with everybody’s favourite, CEO David Zaslav. He’s the boss, in any case.) So there’s an opportunity a choice is made and introduced later this week.
Even when it doesn’t occur this week although, as soon as Superman and Lois are forged, the main target will flip to Lex Luthor (the commerce says each Alexander and Invoice Skarsgard have been talked about—as properly as Hoult, if he doesn’t get Superman) and the Authority, the superhero crew scheduled to get their very own film, however also reportedly appear in Superman Legacy.
Depending on the authors’ strike, in addition to the potential actors’ strike, Gunn is reportedly hoping to start out filming early subsequent 12 months to hit that summer time 2025 launch date. It’s an enormous, enormous title for the studio, Gunn, DC, everybody. So each bit of stories, because it occurs, can have main ramifications. Strap in of us.
