Last weekend, we learned from a report that casting is already underway for the first DCU film Superman: Legacy, and James Gunn is currently looking at different actors who are auditioning to play the key roles of Clark Kent/Superman, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor.
One of the names that emerged as one of the frontrunners for the role of Lois Lane is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, who reportedly delivered an "outstanding" audition although she might also be in the older range for what Gunn is looking for.
In her recent guest appearance on The View, Brosnahan was directly asked about the report surrounding her recent audition for the Lois Lane role in Superman: Legacy.
The Emmy-winning actress didn't confirm whether she indeed auditioned to play Clark Kent's love interest as she cautioned to take the word around the web with a grain of salt.
"Take everything you read in the internet with a grain of salt is my first piece of advice," she said.
However, Brosnahan did not also mince her words as she expressed her enthusiasm about the possibility of playing the iconic DC character and how she will jump the chance if ever she gets the opportunity.
She continued, "But 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 the chance if it arose."
Besides Brosnahan, the report also claimed that other actresses such as Emma Mackey, Phoebe Dynevor, and Samara Weaving are also in the running to play the DCU's Lois Lane in the upcoming movie.
Since the casting process is still in the earlier stages, it might take a while before we will hear the official word on whether Brosnahan does end up taking the role and it will go to one of the other actresses mentioned instead.
As proven by her various roles throughout her career so far, there is no doubt that Brosnahan will do a great job of playing the role if ever she gets cast. For now, let's just wait and see whether it will come to fruition.
Superman: Legacy is slated to release in theaters on July 11, 2025.
