As the script of Superman: Legacy nears completion, the film is steadily assembling its cast to stick to its production date. But has the long list of actors also added popular film critic Grace Randolph into the mix and will she be playing Cat Grant in James Gunn’s DCU? Here’s all you need to know.
Has Grace Randolph been cast in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy?
Grace Randolph is rumored to have been cast in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy.
A recent tweet from the Twitter handle @whenbatmenfly stated that journalist and YouTuber Grace Randolph has been cast in Superman: Legacy. But to give this tweet more credibility, familiar industry insider Daniel Richtman also tweeted confirming that she is a part of the upcoming DCU outing.
While Randolph is a known scooper herself and engages with fans quite regularly on Twitter and YouTube live streams, she hasn’t yet replied to the Superman casting situation. In the past, she has been involved in Zombieland: Double Tap. So, the rumor about Superman: Legacy could hold some truth.
But at the time of writing, the scoop needs to be taken with a grain of salt because even if Randolph is in the film, she could have signed a non-disclosure agreement that prevents her from talking about it. However, if the rumor is true, it would be interesting casting, as Randolph once had a Superman: Legacy casting scoop debunked by James Gunn.
Is Grace Randolph playing Cat Grant in DCU’s Superman: Legacy?
Grace Randolph is rumored to be playing Cat Grant in DCU’s Superman: Legacy.
Cat Grant is a coworker of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, who is the gossip and showbusiness columnist of Daily Planet in the comics. But Considering that Grace Randolph herself is known for revealing a lot of Hollywood gossip, her casting as Cat Grant would make a lot of sense. But the above tweet could also turn out to be a joke amongst two scoopers (DanielRPK and Randolph).
The CW’s Supergirl introduced a much more evolved version of her character where she was the founder and CEO of CatCo Worldwide Media, played by Calista Flockhart. But Superman: Legacy is seemingly bringing a version that’s in the early stages of her career.
