Rachel Brosnahan has been "stalking" journalists in preparation for her role as Lois Lane in the upcoming movie Superman: Legacy.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly on the Emmy Awards red carpet, Brosnahan revealed how she is preparing for the role in director James Gunn's upcoming movie.

"I'm stalking my journalist friends right now," Brosnahan quipped. "I'm just trying to understand a little bit more deeply kind of how that mindset works."

Opening up about what inspired her to take on the famous role, Brosnahan said she grew up watching Margot Kidder, who starred as Lois Lane opposite Christoper Reeve in the Superman films.

"There's not a lot of women in these universes anyway," she said of Kidder's portrayal. "It was nice to see somebody onscreen who felt as ambitious as I felt as a younger woman."

When asked who she was hoping to run into during the red carpet event, Brosnahan revealed that she had just had a mini reunion with her Superman: Legacy co-star Anthony Carrigan, who is set to star as Metamorpho in the movie.

"Well, speaking of Superman, I just ran into Anthony Carrigan. And we haven't seen each other since our casting announcements, so it was a really nice reunion, we've known each other for years... so that was a really nice moment."

Late last year, DC Studios boss James Gunn offered fans a promising update on the reboot's release saying it would be sticking to its original release date despite months of WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

"Thanks to the efforts of our talented crew, who never lost faith during the longest strikes in Hollywood history, and who never let their foot off the pedal, continuing to barrel forward, creating the most amazing character and set designs I've seen in my entire career, Superman: Legacy will be making the originally planned release date of July 11, 2025," he shared on Instagram.

Superman: Legacy premieres in cinemas July 11, 2025.
