which will help kickstart the 'Gods and Monsters' phase of the big screen brand revamp.

He and Safran reached the decision after filming screen tests on the 17th of June, with Nicholas Hoult and Tom Brittney both in the running

for the roles of Clark Kent and his alter ego, and Emma Mackey and Phoebe Dynevor shortlisted for the Daily Planet reporter.

'Superman Legacy' is now set for release on July 11, 2025, with filming beginning next year.Additional cast members, including who will play Lex Luthor and The Authority, will be added in due time.
