David Corenswet reportedly leading Superman: Legacy search

David Corenswet's potential casting as Superman has spurred fan art and discussions, indicating a readiness to welcome him in the role.

You don't need to squint hard to find why DC Studios is looking David Corenswet for the role of Superman.

Whoever will take up the mantle of Superman and wear their undies inside out will have big shoes to fill, which is probably why it's taking James Gunn so long to confirm who the next face of Superman is going to be. But, if we believe the recent reports, DC Studios is close to signing David Corenswet to be Clark Kent in Superman: Legacy.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the 29-year-old, last seen starring in 2022's Horror-Slasher film, Pearl, is currently the top choice to play Superman in the DC Universe.

The news comes after we caught wind of another rumor that DC Studios is close to signing a certain award-winning actress for the lead role of Lois Lane.

Furthermore, THR notes that Nicholas Hoult, who was once in the running for Batman before losing to Robert Pattinson, is the frontrunner to play Lex Luther.

David Corenswet is young and "unknown" enough to be a huge surprise when he finally hits the big screen as Superman.

At just 29 years old, Corenswet is young enough to carry on and become one of the pillars of the DCU for years to come if not decades. Henry Cavill was around the same age when he first starred as the iconic superhero in 2013's Man of Steel. A lot of other Superman actors like Dean Cain and Brandon Routh were just as young as well when they first played Superman on-screen.

It didn't take long for fans to gravitate towards the potential Superman actor, with some creating fan art with Corenswet wearing the iconic suit - hope symbol and all.

The fan's imagination and artistic prowess reflect their eagerness to accept Corenswet as the new Superman.

Superman is an integral part of global pop culture, which is why it was such a big deal for Henry Cavill to return to the role only to vacate it months later.

David Corenswet isn't officially confirmed as Superman yet but this hasn't stopped fans from imaging him as The Last Son of Krypton.

With the potential casting of David Corensweat, fans are eager to see how he will carry the legacy forward. With his charm and talent, Corenswet might just be the gust of fresh air that the franchise has desperately needed for years.

For now, though, fans will have to wait for official confirmation.

As for Gunn, he isn't quite done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. His final outing, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, is still showing in theaters with no signs of slowing down. It's highly unlikely that its box office numbers will drop significantly, at least until Fast X arrives on May 19.
