In the past few decades, superhero movies have proven that they can make the lives of those lucky enough to star in them. After the success of the MCU, famous actors like Anthony Hopkins and Cate Blanchett have proven that the genre is no longer mocked. In the same vein, hugely successful actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Henry Cavill have shown how a lead role in a superhero franchise can become a career-defining move today and forever cement an actor’s future success.
When it was announced that the new head of the DCU, James Gunn, would be reprising key roles for the upcoming Superman: Legacy Movie, lead roles have unsurprisingly become some of the most coveted parts of Hollywood right now. With the recent confirmation that David Kornzweit and Lois Lane will play Superman Rachel BrosnahanThere has already been speculation about whether the couple will take on the task. As far as Brosnahan’s casting goes, we definitely know enough about her already to be hopeful. Only time will tell for sure, though, for now, here are ten reasons why we feel Rachel Brosnahan would make a great Lois Lane for the DCU reboot.
10 her ingenuity

She may still be relatively young but she has already appeared in a wide range of films.

Her filmography thus far really shines a spotlight on an artist with a wide variety of skills and the ability to be good across multiple genres. This variety can only be a good omen because playing the love interest of one of the world’s most popular superheroes isn’t a typical role and requires more subtleties to do well than people might imagine.
9 her background
Rachel Brosnahan has a background that includes performing musical theater in high school and later studying through the prestigious New York Tech School of the Arts. Far from the unlucky and fallen actress in the industry, like many of the best artists out there, she trained for this and made an effort to be successful at her craft.
Her first major role came back when she was still 19 years old. She has shown great poise even from that early age at which she appeared the unborn. The movie was produced by Michael Bay, so it also shows that she can manage not to get overwhelmed by the occasion, since Bay was already a longtime established movie star at that point.
8 her theatrical experience
While acting on screen is usually a pinnacle for actors to find the kind of fame and success they crave most in the industry, those who come with a background in theater often already command the respect of their peers for this fact. Staging can be more intense and requires more discipline since there are no reprieves in a live show and it requires a massive stage presence.

7 Made for big occasions
While she was still in college, Brosnahan was already appearing on huge TV shows like gossip girlAnd the good WifeAnd instinct anatomy Even at such a young age, she held her own while participating in such major performances that she could easily outshine less poised performers.
Lois Lane’s role is as steeped in history and heritage as it is. The fact that the role heralds the start of a new DCU only adds to the film’s scale. Fortunately, Brosnahan has already shown that she can cut it in any environment and has shown enough grit as an actress thus far to handle the depth required for the role.
6 TV appearances
Many stars struggle to get a foothold in their junior years, and often need to settle into minor parts in ARB shows that never see the light of day just to gain experience and survive. However, Rachel Brosnahan’s talent seems to have been noticed early on and the parts she’s gained as a result match it.
Aside from the aforementioned great performances, she has also been in shows like Black listAnd house of cardsAnd Orange is the new blackAndThey were all huge at one time or another. It wasn’t always small portions either. in house of cards She played Rachel Posner, an escort whose clients included the White House Chief of Staff on the show. Brosnahan made several appearances on the show between season one and season three and was excellent on it.
5 It is not easy to intimidate him
Lois Lane is a character who has become as iconic as the Man of Steel himself over the course of the long and illustrious history of the Superman comics. While a character like her might not be the same thing as starring in a biopic of a famous person, make no mistake, spoiling a role can be just as disastrous. Comic book fans are known for being obsessed with even the smallest detail when it comes to their beloved characters.
As George Clooney will tell you, screw up the role of the legendary character and fans will never let you downvote him. While this might be a scary idea, Rachel Brosnahan has already shown that she doesn’t get scared easily. We know this since she’s already worked with the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Spacey, Oscar Isaac, Willem Defoe, Christoph Waltz, and been on Amazon series. Crises in six scenesWhich was written and directed by Woody Allen.
4 Its caliber is by proxy
She may not have been a household name for much of her career, but Rachel Brosnahan is definitely an actress who got it right. In the past six years, she has had a featured role in the Prime Video comedy show, The wonderful Mrs. Maisel In which she played a Jewish woman who tries to be a comedian when her marriage fails.
Her role in the show was played to perfection, and she won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, as well as two Golden Globe Awards, two Critics’ Choice Awards, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards, among other accolades. The show recently ended perfectly, and the timing couldn’t be better since Brosnahan is now standing on the cusp of what will surely be her biggest role yet.
3 She looks the part
To be the lover of one of the most famous, powerful, and desirable men in the world is a great honor. It’s no surprise, then, that Lois Lane has always been portrayed as an extraordinary woman. Not only is she a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with courage to match her spunk, she has always been portrayed as stunningly beautiful. No problem then because Rachel Brosnahan was absolutely stunning.
Nothing upsets comic fans more than when their characters end up being played by actors who don’t look like them in some way. Fortunately, with Lois classically portrayed as beautiful and slim with long dark hair and squinting eyes, you really can’t go wrong with the fact that, physically, Brosnahan is a perfect fit for the character. While some fans may have had trouble with her naturally blonde hair, according to POPSUGAR, there’s no problem either.
“Although her hair color appears natural, the actress told POPSUGAR that she wasn’t actually born a brunette,” Brosnahan said. I am naturally blonde. “I started dying my hair very dark when I was 16, and then I waited almost 10 years before I went back to blonde.” Brosnahan has switched between brown and blonde over the years — and even had red hair in 2015 — but she admits That she has a color preference: “Even though I’m a natural blonde—and I’m usually a big proponent of being exactly who you are—but I really feel like myself more with dark hair,” she said.
2 They look the part
While we haven’t seen them on screen together yet, it’s safe to say that Brosnahan and David Corenswet, who will play Superman, would look adorable together. After all, we’ve already established that she can easily pull off the look fans have come to expect from Lois Lane. All we need now is for him to do his part in this department as well. Fortunately, we also know that whatever David Korenswet may bring to the iconic Kryptonian role, he looks his turn, too.
Long before Corenswet confirmed the role, fans were already imagining him as Superman in fan art, and the actor was also already being compared to his predecessor now, with many noting that he looks a lot like a much younger Henry Cavill. It seems at the moment that fans can be assured of one thing for the pair, they both will definitely look like classic versions of Superman and Lois Lane together. Now all we need is for them to have great chemistry too.
1 her age
Superman: Legacy It will be the start of a new DCU and is expected to establish the kind of longevity that DC fans have been craving. The last split and reboot for Batman Movies, disasters that Suemurder squad The movies, and other examples of DC’s incoherence have been making the DCU a flop so far. James Gunn seems to be fixing the ship and if Superman: Legacy Lives up to the hype and saves the entire franchise, one would expect that there would be recurring roles for the main characters for years to come.
With that in mind, Gunn’s casting of Brosnahan and Korensweet seems to make sense. After all, they’re both still very young, with Brosnahan turning 33 and Corenswet turning 30 next month. Their ages make them ideal for building a legacy and we hope they stick to the characters across multiple films in the future. The DCU could definitely use some continuity. All they need to do now is deliver quality and on the face of it, casting Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane seems like a step in the right direction on that front.
