Superman director James Gunn has taken to social media to reveal that stars David Corenswet (Clarke Kent) and Rachel Brosnahan (Lois Lane) screen-tested together one year ago to the day.

Unfortunately, the filmmaker didn't share a new photo of the pair, but did describe their test as "magic," before giving high praise to both actors.

"One year ago today, David and Rachel screen-tested for Clark and Lois. When they first read together, it was like magic. What a wonderful year it's been with two of the most extraordinary, vibrant, and meticulous actors I've ever had the opportunity to work with. I can't wait for you to see them on screen in just a little over a year."

We still haven't had an official image of Brosnahan as Lois, but the Marvellous Mrs. Maisel star has shared several behind-the-scenes photos of herself and some of her co-stars on set.

So far, the only major reveal that has come from set photos is a glimpse of María Gabriela de Faría in-costume as The Engineer, but we did get a first official look at David Corenswet in his Super-suit a few weeks ago.

The image, which showed an already battle-tested Man of Steel putting his boots on to go deal with another potentially catastrophic threat to Metropolis, was effective enough, but it's probably fair to say that the majority of fans weren't overly impressed.

Superman will also star Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

Sara Sampaio is on board as Lex's assistant/lover Eve Teschmacher, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Neva Howell will play "Ma" and "Pa" Kent, and Wendell Pierce will play Perry White. Milly Alcock's Supergirl is also rumored to make her debut ahead of her own Woman of Tomorrow movie, but that's yet to be confirmed.

We're still not sure exactly how these other superheroes will factor into the story, but Gunn has previously revealed that Superman's dual-life as both Clark Kent and the Man of Steel will be explored in the film, suggesting that these characters will be his "super friends." Whether they'll be part of an actual team or not remains to be seen.

“Overjoyed to be announcing the start of principal photography on SUPERMAN today, February 29, which just so happens to be – coincidentally and unplanned – Superman’s birthday,” Gunn captioned the first official photo earlier this year. “When I finished the first draft of the script, I called the film ‘Superman: Legacy.’ By the time I locked the final draft, it was clear the title was SUPERMAN,” he added. “Making our way to you July 2025.”

Can't wait to see them. I'm sure they'll do better than every live action version since the 2000s.

Given that this is early in this Superman’s career , I guess they won’t be romantically involved as of yet but would be a nice surprise if they were.

@mck13 - Yeah the red panties was embarrassing enough without a baggy suit. Then and ugly (big chin) Lois made it even more bizarre. Corenswet was a good choice and so was Hoult…I guess. Denzel for Lex would have been interesting. But overall this looks like garbage bag juice. Looks like I’m back to waiting for DC content to hit Max. It should be better than Black Adam, probably closer to Blue Beetle. Either way I’ve given up.
