Despite rumors continuing to do the rounds online (which is the norm when any big superhero movie is in the works), it sounds like we're going to be waiting another while for any kind of official casting announcements for Superman: Legacy.
James Gunn, who recently confirmed that he will direct the Man of Steel's next big-screen outing, has now debunked yet another report, this time from Beyond the Trailer's Grace Randolph (who does not have a great track record at this stage).
The rumor claimed that casting is currently underway for three of the main roles - Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen - and that actors in their 20s are being looked at.
However, Gunn has made it clear that they haven't started the casting process yet (though it sounds like they are tossing a few ideas around), and when they do, candidates won't be limited to "people in their twenties."
Right now, all we really know about Superman: Legacy is that it's set to hit theaters on July 11, 2025, and will focus on the early days of the character.
“Superman: Legacy is the true foundation of our creative vision for the DC Universe. Not only is Superman an iconic part of DC lore, he is also a favorite character for comic book readers, viewers of earlier movies, and fans around the world," said Gunn during the slate announcement. "I can’t wait to introduce our version of Superman who audiences will be able to follow and get to know across films, movies, animation and gaming.”
