David Corenswet Replaces Henry Cavill as Superman

David Corenswet, the fast-rising US actor, is set to become the latest star to don Superman’s famous cape.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan will take on the roles of Superman and Lois Lane respectively in ‘Superman: Legacy’, the film that will launch DC’s new universe under writer-director James Gunn.

The new cast members come after Henry Cavill, the British actor, stepped down from the superhero franchise in December last year.

Corenswet and Brosnahan were said to be among the six actors who vied for the lead roles.

“They are not only both incredible actors, but also wonderful people,” Gunn wrote on Twitter while confirming the news.

Gunn, who directed ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy’ trilogy for Marvel, earlier announced the pre-production for the superhero movie.

“I’m honored to be a part of the legacy. And what better day than #SupermanAnniversary Day to dive fully into early pre-production on #SupermanLegacy? Costumes, production design, and more now up and running,” he wrote.

Gunn co-leads the new DC Studios with producer Peter Safran.

Filming of ‘Superman: Legacy’ is expected to commence early next year with a release date set for July 11, 2025.

Corenswet, 29, is a native of Philadelphia. He is known for his roles in the 2022 thriller ‘Pearl’, Netflix series ‘The Politician’ and ‘Hollywood’.

Brosnahan, on the other hand, won an Emmy for her performance in Amazon’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’. She also appeared in ‘House of Cards’ and ‘I’m Your Woman’.

Before Cavill, Superman was previously played on the big screen by Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh.
