In a significant reveal to Vanity Fair, DC Studios has announced exciting updates regarding the cast for James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy. The DC Universe is set to explode with new energy as Isabela Merced, Edi Gathegi, and Nathan Fillion have joined the esteemed roster of Legacy.
Isabela Merced has been chosen to portray the fierce Hawkgirl in Superman: Legacy, with Edi Gathegi taking on the role of Mister Terrific. Meanwhile, Nathan Fillion is set to bring the brash Guy Gardner version of Green Lantern to life in the DC Universe movie.
While rumors of Mister Terrific’s inclusion in Superman: Legacy had been circulating for some time, the addition of Hawkgirl and Guy Gardner’s Green Lantern to the storyline was an unexpected twist. This breaking news follows recent reports that DC Studios is set to skip the 2023 San Diego Comic-Con.
Amid the exciting casting news for Superman: Legacy, David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan were previously confirmed to star as Superman and Lois Lane, respectively. As filming isn’t set to start until early 2024, Superman fans can expect more casting news in the coming months.
Superman’s DC Universe Future
Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
