The rebirth of the DC Universe will begin with the new version of Superman, played by David Corenswet. The casting of the next film of the native of Krypton, ‘Superman: Legacy’ has recruited three new names that will play three notorious superheroes from DC history.
Corenswet will be supported (at least on set) by Isabella MercedInterpreting Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi what will it be Mr Terrific and Nathan Fillion who will play the role of Green Lantern.
The filming of this film is scheduled for January 2024 and its premiere for July 2025. Its producer Peter Safran already confirmed at the time that the intention of the director, James Gunn, is that the franchise is not a reboot in full, so Viola Davis, Xolo Maridueña or John Cena will continue with their roles as Amanda Walker, Blue Beetle and Peacemaker respectively.
Fillion and Gunn’s Story
Nathan Fillion is an old acquaintance in James Gunn casts. In the past he already played a small role as the superhero TDK and in the recent ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ he played Orgocorp’s head of security: Karja.
It can be intuited that due to the magnitude of the role he plays, his weight in this film will be much more important than in the aforementioned. However, Fillion will play Guy Gardner and in the comics he is part of the Green Lantern Corps, but It is not the most popular version of the superhero, since it belongs to Hal Jordan. Therefore it is not clear if in this DC universe, Fillion will be the main Green Lantern or will act as a connector so that in the future, Jordan and Superman meet.
