Superman Casting Exposed by James Gunn and Logan Lerman

The director and co-Head of DC Studios, James Gunn, has shown up to debunk again the persistent rumors about the casting of The Man of Steel for his upcoming reboot, Superman: Legacy. Rumors recently circulated on social media claiming that Bullet Train and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: the Lightning Thief Star Logan Lerman had been courted for the role of Clark Kent/Superman, but Gunn arrived to reveal that this was not the matter.

On social networks (where Gunn has been quick to debunk all kinds of rumors lately), the filmmaker revealed that not only had he not talked to Lerman about a role in Superman: Legacy, but he didn’t even know who he was. Of course, this was not intended as a dig against the actor, which Gunn clarified.

Naturally, just because you’re a director doesn’t mean that you suddenly know the names of all the existing actors, but the fact that Gunn doesn’t know who Logan Lerman is is the only proof we really need that the Fury Star isn’t action for the role of Superman: Legacy.

Gunn went even further to clarify things, revealing that he and fellow DC Studios Head Peter Safran “haven’t had a single conversation with a single actor about the role. I’m just making private lists, preparing materials for auditions.”

There are currently several popular casting options for the new Superman, including Pearl and We Own This City Star David Corenswet, Yes, God, Yes and Assassination Nation actor Wolfgang Novogratz, as well as Euphoria Star Jacob Elordi, and although this may end up being one of them them…maybe…it looks like Gunn and Saffron are still very early in the Casting process.

Superman: Legacy is scheduled to be released in theaters in 2025

One thing we now know about Superman: Legacy is that Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad director James Gunn will be writing and directing the project. “Yes, I’m directing Superman: Legacy, which will be released on July 11, 2025. My brother Matt told me that when he saw the release date, he started crying. I asked him why. He said, “Man, it’s Dad’s birthday.”I hadn’t noticed,” Gunn said in a series of Tweets. “It’s been a long road to this point. I was offered Superman years ago – at first I said no because I didn’t have a unique, fun and emotional way, giving Superman the dignity he deserved. Then, a little less than a year ago, I saw a path inside that focused on Superman’s legacy in many ways — how his aristocratic Kryptonian parents and his Kansas farmer parents inform who he is and the choices he makes.”

A synopsis for Superman: Legacy has since followed and reads: “Superman Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to balance 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 considers kindness old-fashioned.”

Superman: Legacy is scheduled to be released on July 11, 2025 and will be the first installment of the new (and, hopefully, improved) DCU. The Superman reboot is followed by the superhero team movie the Authority, a Batman project called The Brave and the Bold, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a Swamp Thing reboot, a Wonder Woman prequel series called Paradise Lost, the Creature Commandos animated series, a series about Amanda Waller, a Green Lantern series called Lanterns and a series about Booster Gold.
