I would've gone with Christina Hendricks.

She'd be great, but Sara Sampaio probably makes a better Miss Tesmacher for Nicolas Hoult's Lex, because she's not fifteen years older than he is.

According to Deadline, Sara Sampaio (At Midnight) has been cast as Eve Teschmacher in Superman: Legacy by Warner Bros.

The character, who was first introduced in Superman and Superman II, was created by Richard Donner and Mario Puzo and is known in the comics as Lex Luthor's assistant turned love interest and right hand. Sampaio will be taking over the role previously played by Valerie Perrine in the Christopher Reeve-led Superman movies and Andrea Brooks on The CW's Supergirl.

Skyler Gisondo, renowned for his performance in HBO's The Righteous Gemstones, has been selected to portray the role of Jimmy Olsen, the youthful and enthusiastic photographer at The Daily Planet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He will be seen collaborating with Clark Kent and Lois Lane in their journalistic endeavors.

The film also stars Nicholas Hoult as Luthor, David Corenswet as Clark Kent/Superman, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Anthony Carrigan as Rex Mason/Metamorpho, and Mara Gabriela de Fara as Angela Spica/The Engineer.

I personally would have gone with somebody a little older, but I'm sure he'll be a hundred times better than Jesse Eisenberg.

Not getting good vibes from Gunns plans so far. It looks more like a set up for The Authority than a Superman movie.

So... The Authority are the villains? Sounds like they might be adapting "What's so Funny about Truth, Justice and The American Way" but without the stand-ins.

Mara Gabriela de Fara, the renowned Venezuelan actress recognized for her roles in Fox comedies Animal Control and The Moodys, will be joining the cast of James Gunn's highly anticipated movie, Superman: Legacy.

In this film, de Fara will portray the character Angela Spica, also known as The Engineer. As a member of the villain team in the Warner/DC production, Angela possesses extraordinary powers derived from nanotechnology integrated into her own body. The Engineer, created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, is the second DC character to bear this name and was initially introduced in The Authority vol.1 #1 in 1999.

Superman: Legacy serves as the inaugural title in a revamped lineup of DC films, marking James Gunn's directorial debut as co-head of DC Studios. The movie will delve into Superman's journey as he grapples with reconciling his Kryptonian heritage with his upbringing as a human. He embodies the values of truth, justice, and the American way, guided by the compassion and kindness that is often dismissed in today's world.

Joining de Fara in this ensemble cast are previously announced actors such as David Corenswet as Clark Kent/Superman, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, and Anthony Carrigan as Rex Mason/Metamorpho.

Despite the challenges posed by the recent WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, which have caused delays for numerous other projects, James Gunn has confirmed that Superman: Legacy will maintain its scheduled release date of July 11, 2025. Gunn, who also penned the script, draws inspiration from the iconic characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Peter Safran, co-boss of DC Studios.
