More red carpet SAG Awards interviews have surfaced from last night's event, where Rachel Brosnahan fielded questions related to Superman: Legacy.

Deadline Hollywood asked how Brosnahan thinks fans will respond to her Lois Lane and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel actress replied, "I'm still preparing, I'm talking to some journalists, reading a lot of comics. There's so many comics that I had not read before. It's been really fun to dig into this universe. We were just out in Atlanta, we did our first table read. I got to see the suit and I was blown away. So I hope that the fans are, as well."

Even with filming set to begin next week, it seems the final look for Lois Lane is still being finalized.

Said Brosnahan, "I tried on a lot of costumes. I think James [Gunn] is sorting through them right now and we're figuring out the look."

Obviously, the clothes that a Daily Planet reporter will wear are not as important as the design of the Superman suit but it's interesting to learn that some decisions are coming down to the wire.

Sometimes, the clothes that a character wears in a film can go a long way toward informing the audience about their unspoken traits.

Should Lois have a disheveled look to convey that she's more interested in her job as a reporter instead of how she looks to others? Or should Lois have a provocative look that she uses to disarm the subjects of her investigation?

Superman: Legacy, the James Gunn-directed (and written) film stars David Corenswet as Kal-El/Clark Kent, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Sean Gunn as Maxwell Lord, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/The Engineer, Terence Rosemore as Otis and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

Additionally, Nicholas Hoult has been confirmed by Gunn to portray Lex Luthor in the film. Milly Alcock was also recently cast as Supergirl and is also expected (but unconfirmed) to appear in Legacy, as well.

Recently, the full main cast assembled in Atlanta for the first time for a table read as Gunn looks to officially start filming, potentially on Monday. With cameras officially rolling next week, there's a strong chance we might get our first look at David Corenswet's Kingdom Come-inspired Superman suit.

In addition to filming in Atlanta on a sound stage, Legacy is also scheduled to film in Cleveland, Ohio in a location that could potentially be used for the Hall of Justice. The shoot is also scheduled to film in Hell, Norway for scenes that many fans believe will be used for the Fortress of Solitude.

Currently set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy is the first film in Gunn's reboot of the DCEU.

Among the most recent casting in terms of looks, I would rank the iterations of Lois

1) Margot Kidder
2) Elizabeth Tulloch
3) Rachel Brosnahan
4) Erica Durance
5) Teri Hatcher
6) Amy Adams
7) Kate Bosworth

@Forthas - if we’re just basing on looks, for me it would go:

Rachel Brosnahan
Amy Adam’s
Elizabeth Tulloch

However, if we’re going by Lois personality and overall portrayal:

Elizabeth Tulloch
Brosnahan (from brief interviews she seems
To have similar viewpoints on how I think Lois should be portrayed.)
Kidder-hate how condescending she is to Clark.

@Epc11223 - it's funny how Elizabeth Tulloch act as Lois Lane is classic Lois Lane to me
Forthas - 2/25/2024, 11:52 PM
@Epc11223 - Wow you have a problem with Margot Kidder. I think she is seen as the prototype but each their own. I think Bosworth was the worst looks wise and how she portrayed Lois which was a bit whiney to me.
Epc11223 - 2/26/2024, 12:15 AM
@Forthas - I find it crazy that she gets such praise for her portrayal but it is what it is. Never thought she was particularly pretty and I could see why they wanted her to act one way with Clark and another way with Superman (puppy dog eyes) but with the way she was with Clark, I can’t see Superman falling in love with her. I like how in Elizabeth’s version, she falls in love with Clark because he’s just a good guy and even though Superman had all these cool powers, she got to know Clark and fell in love with him. I thought it was a refreshing change. With Durance, I thought she had great chemistry with Tom welling and made their interactions fun to watch. Hatcher I liked the first two seasons but then she changed a lot with her looks and personality. I’d rank her higher based on the first two seasons. Bosworth I think is fine but didn’t really care for how she was written. The line: “what’s so hard about saying goodbye” to me is just ridiculous. Not her fault, that’s the writer/director, but that depiction is crazy. Of course it’s tough saying goodbye to people we care about. I know it meant more later in the movie when he did say goodbye but I just cringe at that part. Again, not the actors fault but it is what it is.

She'll be great! Also.. DUNE PART TWO WAS AMAZING! there was a few changes from the book but it stuck the landing like an Olympian. See this on the biggest screen possible! For being 2hr45min it really flew by. I wanted more.. well done Denis, he hasn't made a bad movie yet, and I doubt he ever will lol

@bobevanz - "For being 2hr45min it really flew by."

The first one felt like the opposite to me, so this would be a nice change of pace for me.

It's best to start from now to lower the expecations, just in case. For all we know we'll find out the cape is actually very small just likein the All-Star story that is influencing Gunn a lot.

As long as the Kingdom Come yellow-colored inspired emblem looks good on the suit then it should be ok.
Epc11223 - 2/26/2024, 1:37 AM
@NinnesMBC - I don’t think there’s a need to lower expectations but to try going in with an open mind. I actually just recently watched the Batman brave and the bold episode with Superman in it and was just thinking that I hope the cape isn’t that short. I think the cape length in hoechlin’s suit is the perfect length. Reeve was on the shirt side and csvill’s i thought was too long. Fingers crossed though.

You can tell she's already tired of these questions.

If the writers on this site want a huge response from us talkbackers, then there should be a 'Who's the Best Superman list' article
TheVisionary25 - 2/26/2024, 6:57 AM
Sweet , looking forward to seeing her in the role!!.

I hope we get a first look at the suit this week if not soon.

Doesn`t ANYONE grasp the efficacy of euphonious STAGE NAMES anymore?

Not gonna lie she looks and sounds perfect for Lois Lane, I am so pumped to see what we're gonna get out of this duo! Could be absolutely iconic.
