The Righteous Gemstones and Santa Clarita Diet actor Skyler Gisondo has landed a key role in James Gunn‘s Superman: Legacy. Gisondo will play cub reporter, photojournalist and–most importantly–Superman’s pal in the 2025 film.
After the character was rumored to be part of the Man of Steel’s latest theatrical reboot, Gunn–as is his way–confirmed the speculation on Twitter earlier this year. Multiple actors have brought Olsen to life over the years with Gisondo set to be the ninth live-action version of the character. Given his acting resume, Gisondo seems very likely to be much more in line with the “Jeepers Mr. Kent” version of the character than the Snyderverse’s version played by Michael Cassidy.
Gisondo joins new Kal-El David Corenswet, new Lois Lane Rachel Brosnahan along with Nathan Fillion, Isabel Merced, Anthony Carrigan, Edi Gathegi and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor. Superman: Legacy is slated to start production early in 2024 ahead of a July 11, 2025 release.
