Over the weekend, the first contenders for the lead roles in James Gunn's Superman: Legacy emerged, and while it's still very early days, the trades believe that up-and-comer David Corenswet is the current frontrunner to take over from Henry Cavill as our next big-screen Man of Steel.
The 29-year-old actor only has a few film and TV credits to his name, but House of Cards fans will likely recognize him as Claire Underwood's college sweetheart, Reed, and he recently appeared in Ti West's horror prequel, Pearl.
As expected, fan-art has now begun to circulate online. This impressive piece imagines how Corenswet might look suited-up as the iconic DC Comics hero, and he actually bears quite a resemble to Cavill's take on the character here.
Check out the artwork below, along with a fan-poster for the movie itself which Zack Snyder supporters are sure to find interesting!
Gunn took to Twitter shortly after the trade reports to state that he would not comment on who may or may not have auditioned for Legacy, but we do know that he is planning to see many more actors before a decision is made.
Jacob Elordi (Euphoria), and Andrew Richardson (Extrapolations) are also said to be in the mix to play Clark Kent/Superman, while Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Emma Mackey (Barbie), Phoebe Dynevor (Bridgerton), and Samara Weaving (Scream VI) reportedly read for Lois Lane.
Nicholas Hoult (Renfield) is believed to be "the only person" who is being considered for Lex Luthor at the moment.
