Legacy Lois Lane Casting Rumors

Rachel Brosnahan and Lois Lane

Rachel Brosnahan just responded to rumors that she’s one of writer-director James Gunn’s top choices to portray Lois Lane in Superman: Legacy.

Brosnahan addressed speculation she’s “one of the frontrunners” for the Lois Lane role in the hotly-anticipated reboot during an appearance on The View. “I mean, look, take everything you read on the internet with a grain of salt is my first piece of advice,” she said. “Look, it would be extraordinary [to play Lois Lane]. I grew up watching Lois Lane.” Brosnahan is best known for playing the lead role in Prime Video’s comedy-drama series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, for which she has nabbed several awards, including two Golden Globes and a Primetime Emmy. Her feature film credits include Unborn, Beautiful Creatures, Louder Than Bombs, The Finest Hours, Patriots Day, The Courier and I’m Your Woman.

While Brosnahan was quick to downplay the possibility that she’s in the running for Superman: Legacy, insiders continue to link her to the production. These sources also claim that Brosnahan’s competition for the Lois Lane part includes Emma Mackey (Sex Education), Phoebe Dynevor (Bridgerton) and Samara Weaving (Scream VI). Meanwhile, Pearl‘s David Corenswet is said to be one of DC Studios’ favorites to suit up as the Man of Steel himself. That said, at least some of these supposed candidates for Superman: Legacy‘s cast were apparently culled from a “chatroom list” and Gunn and his team are apparently “nowhere near a decision” regarding the Superman and Lois roles.

This tracks with a recent tweet by Gunn, which made it clear that all of Superman: Legacy‘s major roles are currently vacant, despite buzz to the contrary. The filmmaker and DC Studios co-chair and co-CEO added that he has no intention of discussing the reboot’s audition process publicly. “For all of you asking, I would never comment on who is or isn’t AUDITIONING for a role. That’s the actor’s business only [and] isn’t something I’d make public unless they did it first after the fact (like [Glenn Howerton] or [Zachary Levi] having auditioned for Star-Lord [and] being top choices),” Gunn tweeted.

At the same time, Gunn also confirmed that one of Superman: Legacy‘s smaller parts has been filled, although he declined to provide any further details. Whether this is connected to Gunn’s prior confirmation that Superman: Legacy will feature a veteran of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is currently unclear at this stage.

Superman: Legacy soars into cinemas on July 11, 2025.
