The world of superhero movies is always buzzing with excitement and anticipation, and the recent news of a new Superman casting has got fans and scoopers heavily invested in it. Since the departure of Henry Cavill from the role, it has been exciting to see who will put on the red cape next. Grace Randolph, a popular YouTuber, and film critic, had been coming out with rumors and speculation from her sources claiming that James Gunn has completed the casting of Superman. However, her rumors were later debunked by James Gunn himself.
Randolph had tweeted, “I hear they are VERY close to a #Superman casting – might not be announced for a while but it could leak. Very very close…Role MIGHT even be cast or in final talks.” This tweet sparked a frenzy of speculation and rumors among fans and media outlets.

However, James Gunn quickly took to Twitter to refute Randolph’s claims. He tweeted, “Not true. Haven’t had a single talk with a single actor about the role. Just making private lists, prepping material for auditions.”

Randolph did not stop there and came up with new speculation by tweeting, “Interesting, since it’s ‘not true’ I guess I can say I heard his top choice is #LoganLerman. We’ll see what happens!” Again, Gunn was quick to respond and replied, “For the record, I don’t know who that is.”

All these rumors and speculations have caused a lot of excitement and confusion among fans. However, it is important to remember that until an official announcement is made, all such rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. It is also worth noting that casting decisions for major superhero roles are often closely guarded secrets and can be subject to change.
James Gunn’s recent tweet on Grace Randolph:
It is unclear who will ultimately be cast as Superman, but one thing is for sure: fans and moviegoers are eagerly awaiting the official announcement. Superman is one of the most iconic and beloved superheroes of all time, and whoever takes on the role will have big boots to fill.
