While it was recently revealed that David Corenswet (The Politician) will play Clark Kent and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan will play Lois Lane in Superman: Legacy, several announcements were made in the last week rounding out the cast for some of Superman’s fellow Justice League members.

Here’s all the new Superman: Legacy cast members we know about:

Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner

Anthony Carrigan (Barry, Gotham, The Flash) will portray Metamorpho, making him the first actor to portray the character in live action. Carrigan is no stranger to the DC Comics world, having played Victor Zsasz in Fox’s Gotham and Kyle Nimbus/Mist in CW’s The Flash.

With these announcements, many are worried the movie will be cramped with too many heroes and lose its focus on Superman and his Daily Planet friends. On Instagram, James Gunn answered a fan comment asking this very question.

With some unexpected heroes announced and co-starring in the movie, it’s only a matter of time before we get an idea of who will be the villain as well as who will play Perry White and Jimmy Olsen, two of the mainstays in Clark and Lois’s life that also work at The Daily Planet. Adding these heroes into the movie tells us that this is a very different Superman movie than we’re used to. In the last several films about the Man of Tomorrow, Superman is by himself; in this one, heroes seem to have existed in this world for a long time, and Superman has friends he can count on.
