Rachel Brosnahan Says She’s Shortlisted To Play Lois Lane In ‘Superman: Legacy’: ‘It Would Be Extraordinary’


The wonderful Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan has been shortlisted to play Lois Lane James Gunns Superman: Legacy, sources said The Hollywood Reporter.

According to sources, Brosnahan delivered an “excellent” audition for the spunky Daily planet reporter, but perhaps in the older range for what Gunn hopes to achieve with his vision for the Man of Steel – one that focuses on Metropolis heroics with characters in their twenties.

Nevertheless, the Emmy-winning actress would love the chance to play the iconic comic book character who has been played by actresses like Amy Adams, Erica Durance, Kate Bosworth, Elizabeth Tulloch, and Margot Kidder, among others.

“I mean look, take everything you read on the internet with a grain of salt is my first piece of advice,” Brosnahan joked The view when asked about the story THR broke that says she is shortlisted for the character. ‘Look, it would be extraordinary. I grew up watching Lois Lane, this incredibly talented journalist, far from a damsel in distress, and I would jump at the chance if it presented itself.

Other contenders for Lois Lane include Emma Mackey, who stars in Netflix’s Sex education and will be with Greta Gerwig Barbie, Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor and Samara Weaving, who was last seen in Scream VI.

However, sources also warn that some actresses have not undergone any sort of screen test and have simply been in the mix. A source told THR that some of the names in the ring are currently just part of “a chat room list”, with another source noting that the filmmakers and studio are “a long way from a decision”.

David Corenswet, who starred in Netflix’s Hollywood and recently starred in Pearl, is one of the top contenders to play Clark Kent. Euphoria star Jacob Elordi was also considered for the role of Kent, but sources say he never submitted his name for the role. Nicholas Hoult seems to be the only person who qualifies for Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor.
