Superman has mostly been shooting behind closed doors today. While there are some very blurry shots of the Man of Steel and Lois Lane from afar floating around on X, we have something far more exciting to share with you.

Mikaela Hoover, who played Nova Prime's Assistant/Floor the Rabbit in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and Camila in The Suicide Squad, was recently cast as the DCU's Cat Grant. Now, she's been spotted on set emerging from that same mysterious ship and looks pitch-perfect as The Daily Planet reporter. 

For those of you who aren't familiar with the character, she first appeared in Adventures of Superman #424 in 1987. Created by Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway, she was initially introduced as a gossip columnist for the newspaper. 

Cat's character has evolved significantly since with the character portrayed as a single mother dealing with personal and professional challenges, including the tragic death of her son, Adam. However, it's her flirtatious relationship with Clark Kent which is often a source of entertainment. 

Youn can see Hoover's take on Cat Grant and Christopher MacDonald's Ron Troupe in the X posts below.

While we're hoping for another new look at Superman later today, a Daily Planet truck has been spotted teasing a modern twist on the iconic newspaper. 

Superman tells the story of Superman's journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.

David Corenswet is playing the Man of Steel, while Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to star as Lois Lane.

The cast includes Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Supporting characters include Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Pa Kent, Neva Howell as Ma Kent, Beck Bennett as Steve Lombard, Mikaela Hoover as Cat Grant, Christopher MacDonald as Ron Troupe, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.

Milly Alcock is also expected to make a cameo appearance as Supergirl before taking flight in her own movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.

Superman is currently set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

Christopher McDonald looks… different

@Madman - I'm ashamed that it took me like two full minutes of googling to sort out that the pictured actor is Christopher MacDonald, not Christopher McDonald.

@Madman - He's wearing glasses (you know how it makes it too difficult to recognize others you've seen countless times).

She looks amazing and I love that she even made her hair blonde for the role.

What a babe.

Great casting, Gunn.

Well, if she doesn't get the role or already has it and she's not good at it, at least there are 2 VERY BIG reasons to keep her around.
TheVisionary25 - 6/25/2024, 4:01 PM
Yo , is the entire cast in that ship lol?.

She does look good though I wouldn’t say pitch perfect since they are many different iterations of Cat Grant that very in appearance (even a brunette one) from comics or shows.

I do hope they have some nice conflict between her & Lois since they are meant to be opposites.

With all these set leaks going on at this point we've basically seen the entire film.
MG0019 - 6/25/2024, 4:46 PM
@HashTagSwagg - Lol. Oh yeah, one set = whole film.

Still haven’t seen Krypto, Supergirl, Nathan Fillion, Fortress of Solitude, Lex in costume, or I dunno, any of the other plot details that no one knows about.

But yeah, we’ve seen the whole movie.

So far everything looks great except the Superman suit that has been seen since the reveal. The colors are brilliant I must admit, and I love the symbol they chose to go with. Brandon Routh had a version of this suit which was completely better though, because it had the proper collar to go with it. I am referring to the scene in the end of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" when he did his final flyby. The collar on this suit does not go well with the trunks at all.

The (New 52)suit with that collar has a red belt and no trunks, which would look great in live action, it would even help to pull off the textured lines within. The trunks are supposed to be with the tights and traditional collar like Chris Reeve & Brandon Routh or Dean Cain. This looks like the knock off suit from Fortnite or something from Eternals with trunks over it. I had faith in Gunn until I saw this, now I am filled with disappointment. I can only pray he has other suits in this film as well, something more traditional even, to make the trunks work correctly. But thats even more reason to get each 1 correct and not have a mess of ideas (New 52 + traditional look). The suit in these recent pictures should not have trunks.

I thought Gunn cared about Superman enough to get it right, not make him look like a Marvel rip off wearing trunks over textured material. Trunks are for tights, not textured outfits. Some time ago there was a picture of Corenswet in more traditional looking tights with trunks and Gunn laughed at it claiming it not to be real before the reveal of this suit. That Paparazzi picture looked straight out of "All Star Superman". That suit was way better than this. To fix this suit either change the trunks for a red belt, or fix the collar so it doesn't make the trunks seem out of place. Brandon Routh's CW suit was WAY BETTER, possibly the Best Superman suit EVER. Why would the armor/padded look need trunks?

She looks very but very full of make up. But that's just me.

Maybe she'll have some fun, comedic timing scenes in that ship with the rest of the Daily Planet staff.
