Nathan Fillion, Isabela Merced, and Edi Gathegi join cast of James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy as Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, and Mister Terrific.
According to Vanity Fair, Nathan Fillion (The Rookie), Isabela Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), and Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class) have signed on to appear in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy.
Nathan Fillion is set to play Guy Gardner, a charismatic and slightly obnoxious member of the Green Lantern Corps, with Isabela Merced playing Hawkgirl and Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific. The leading roles of the movie were filled just two weeks ago, with David Corenswet (Pearl) set to play Clark Kent and Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Ms. Maisel) stepping into the shoes of Lois Lane. With members of The Authority also said to be making their first appearance in Superman: Legacy, the film is shaping up to be rather packed with heroes.
Nathan has worked with James Gunn many times, so it is no surprise that the actor has joined his new DC Universe in Superman Legacy. Nathan Fillion has worked on many James Gunn projects, including Slither and Super, The Suicide Squad and more. He also appeared in the recent Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 30-1001010. Gunn confirmed this news on Twitter.The new DC Universe’s first chapter will include both movies and television projects. The same actors are expected to play these roles, regardless of the medium. One of those TV projects includes
Lanterns, which will feature John Stewart and Hal Jordan as they uncover a dark mystery. James Gunn, who will write and direct the Superman Legacy
movie, has promised to make it different from the Guardians Of The Galaxy movies. Peter Safran, co-chairman of DC Studios, teased that Superman Legacy would not be an origin tale and would instead focus on “Superman’s struggle to balance his Kryptonian roots with his human upbringing.” Superman is truth, justice and American values. He is kindness in a world that thinks of kindness as old fashioned.” Superman: Legacy will hit theaters on July 11, 2025.What are your thoughts on Nathan Fillion, Isabela Merced, and Edi Gathegi joining the cast of Superman: Legacy
