Hot off another Emmy nomination for Barry, Anthony Carrigan has been cast as Metamorpho in James Gunn‘s Superman: Legacy.
David Corenswet is set to star as Clark Kent/Superman, while Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan will play intrepid reporter Lois Lane.
The comic book movie’s supporting cast will include Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner from the Green Lantern Corps, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, and Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl.
Created by Bob Haney and Ramona Fradon in 1965, Metamorpho, aka Rex Mason, is an archeologist-turned-detective who becomes a superhero with the ability to transmutate elements in his body into various forms, taking those properties on as powers. He was a founding member of the DC supergroup known as the Outsiders.
