Hold onto your capes, folks, because the DC Universe just got a whole lot hotter! In a shocking move that’s sending shockwaves through Hollywood, DC Studios has chosen none other than the sizzling talent, María Gabriela De Faría, to join the star-studded cast of James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy.”
Deadline spilled the beans on this casting coup, and we can barely contain our excitement! The vivacious Venezuelan sensation is set to embody Angela Spica, also known as The Engineer, a formidable Authority member with a liquid machinery body that can transform into an arsenal of deadly weapons. Talk about a superhero upgrade!
James Gunn, the mastermind behind this electrifying reboot, had a few words to say about De Faria’s addition to the DC Universe. And folks, he’s not mincing words! “Villain is such a disparaging term,” he declared, showing his support for De Faria. “Welcome to the DCU, De Faria, who is not only a wonderful actor but laughs in person even more than she does in her Instagram feed.” Looks like we’re in for a wild ride with The Engineer!
But wait, there’s more! The “Superman: Legacy” cast is stacked like never before. David Corenswet will take on the iconic role of the Man of Steel himself, while the dazzling Rachel Brosnahan will dazzle as Lois Lane. And guess what? Fans seem to be digging the casting choices, despite some previous DC disappointments.
But that’s not all, folks! Nathan Fillion is set to light up the screen as Green Lantern, Edi Gathegi will bring the terrific Mister Terrific to life, Isabela Merced will soar as Hawkgirl, and Anthony Carrigan is set to morph into Metamorpho. Gunn even spilled the beans that these actors will have more tricks up their sleeves in other DCU projects. Talk about a superhero universe on steroids!
Now, mark your calendars because “Superman: Legacy” is soaring into theaters on July 11, 2025. It’s set to unravel the epic tale of Superman as he juggles his Kryptonian roots and his Kansan upbringing. This is just the beginning of a thrilling saga, known as Chapter 1 of the new DCU, titled “Gods and Monsters.” And rest assured, it won’t be just another origin story, but Gunn promises it won’t be a kiddie flick either.
But hold on to your capes! There was some initial confusion surrounding Henry Cavill’s involvement, but it seems like he’s out of the picture after Gunn and co-CEO Peter Safran shook things up at DC. Gunn himself, known for his Marvel magic with “Guardians of the Galaxy,” is taking the reins for “Superman: Legacy.” Don’t expect the same vibe, though!
While we’re still piecing together the puzzle, one thing’s for sure: this movie promises to be epic, intense, and just the right amount of mature for a PG-13 rating. We can’t wait to see De Faria and the rest of the superstar cast take flight in this thrilling new chapter of the DC Universe! Stay tuned, superhero fans, because this is one legacy we won’t forget.
