In June, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Studios officially announced that the Pearl star had been chosen to play one of the world’s most beloved superheroes in Superman: Legacy.
Additionally, Rachel Brosnahan from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was cast as Lois Lane.
David Corenswet has been gaining recognition in the entertainment world for his standout performances in projects like the popular Netflix series The Politician and the slasher movie Pearl.
New BTS Photos show Buffed David Corenswet
Recent BTS photos of David Corenswet from the set of an upcoming documentary, in which he serves as the cinematographer, reveal his remarkable physical transformation for his role in the DC universe.
David Corenswet has clearly committed to bulking up for the role of Superman, as evident from his well-defined trapezius muscles, which are prominently visible. This bodes well for his portrayal of the iconic superhero.
The success of not only Superman but also DC Studios as a whole appears to hinge on the outcome of Superman: Legacy.
For David Corenswet, the most significant hurdle in his role as Superman in Superman: Legacy will not be just the physical changes, but rather authentically embodying the essence of the character.
Henry Cavill’s version of Superman had a darker tone, thanks to Zack Snyder’s vision, which aimed for a unique direction compared to Marvel Studios’ approach.
On the other hand, James Gunn, the director, is likely aiming for a more classic Superman, similar to Tyler Hoechlin’s portrayal in “Superman & Lois,” which has garnered praise from fans.
Superman: Legacy won’t delve into the character’s origin story. Instead, it will focus on Clark
Kent juggling his life as a journalist and Metropolis’ hero in a world already filled with superheroes.
The film’s cast includes Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Edi Gathegi as Michael Holt/Mr. Terrific, Isabela Moner as Hawkgirl, and Anthony Carrigan as Rex Manson/Metamorpho.
Directed by James Gunn, Superman: Legacy is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 11, 2025.
