Pom Klementieff and Miriam Shor in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy, a must-see!

Get ready for the star-studded superhero blockbuster of 2025! Pom Klementieff and Miriam Shor have joined the cast of James Gunn's Superman: Legacy. Find out more about this highly anticipated movie and the talented team behind it.

Pom Klementieff and Miriam Shor are the latest to join the growing cast of James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy. The Man of Steel feature is due to be the kickoff for the much ballyhooed DC Studios slate when it hits theaters in July 2025 and has been casting up furiously since the end of the actors strike in November.

Skyler Gisondo, Sara Sampaio, and Sean Gunn are among those who have joined in recent weeks, with Nicholas Hoult, who’ll be playing villain Lex Luthor, being officially announced as having his deal done by Gunn on Instagram Monday. He probably posted a selfie with Luthor’s infamous bald head filter.

David Corenswet is starring as Clark Kent/Superman while Rachel Brosnahan is playing intrepid reporter Lois Lane. Anthony Carrigan, Isabel Merced, and Nathan Fillion are also in the cast as heroes Metamorpho, Hawkgirl, and Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, respectively. It’s like the Justice League had a baby with the Guardians of the Galaxy and we are here for it!

Details of Klementieff and Shor’s roles are being kept in the Fortress of Solitude. DC declined to comment. Both, however, are part of the Gunn family. Klementieff became a scene-stealing breakout when she played alien empath Mantis in Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies and also had a cameo in the filmmaker’s 2021 DC movie The Suicide Squad. Shor, meanwhile, played a henchwoman known as Recorder Vim in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Clearly, Gunn loves to keep it in the family.

Klementieff was last seen trying to kill Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. She is repped by CAA, Linden Entertainment, Two Management, and Goodman Genow. It seems like her mission is to jump from one action-packed franchise to another, and we are not complaining!

Shor has an enviable awards season ahead of her as she co-stars in both Maestro, Bradley Cooper’s Leonard Bernstein biopic from Netflix, and American Fiction, the satire from Cord Jefferson that won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. She is repped by Gersh, Impression Entertainment, and Schreck Rose. With such an impressive lineup of projects, it seems like Shor is ready to take over Hollywood, one award-worthy role at a time.

With such an all-star cast and a director like James Gunn at the helm, Superman: Legacy is shaping up to be a superpowered blockbuster that will have fans flocking to the theaters in 2025. And with the addition of Klementieff and Shor, the excitement and anticipation for this Man of Steel movie only continues to grow. We can’t wait to see the magic that this talented team will bring to the iconic superhero franchise. Stay tuned for more updates as the Fortress of Solitude reveals more secrets about this upcoming cinematic masterpiece!
