Rachel Brosnahan Describes Her Lois Lane in “Superman: Legacy”

ET’s Deidre Behar caught up with Rachel Brosnahan on the red carpet at the 29th Annual Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles, which aired Sunday on The CW. The actress teased what fans can expect from the upcoming “Superman: Legacy” film and how she’s putting her own ‘feisty’ spin on the iconic Lois Lane role.

“I’ve really enjoyed the collaboration with James Gunn so far,” she said. “Every single person involved with this production is such a perfect nerd for Superman. We all grew up watching the movies, some of us grew up reading the comics. I feel like it’s being made with so much love.”

“This Superman will have a sense of humor,” she added, before stopping to think about how much she can actually reveal. “We’re excited to both put our spin on things, and also honor this material that we all love so much. We have big shoes to fill, but we’re excited to try to fill them.”

Rachel also spoke with The Hollywood Reporter at the Emmy Awards last night, confirming that “Superman: Legacy” begins filming in March, and that she’s looking forward to reuniting with Anthony Carrigan (who will play Metamorpho), who she will share a few scenes with in the movie.

The cast of “Superman: Legacy” features David Corenswet as Superman/Clark Kent, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and María Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Directed by James Gunn, “Superman: Legacy” is scheduled to be released July 11, 2025.
