These 9 Major DCEU Actors Are Likely to Be Recast in James Gunn's DC Reboot

Several DCEU performers are anticipated to be recast in James Gunn's rebooted DC universe.

Co-CEOs Peter Safran and Gunn are ready to lead one of Warner Bros.' major pieces of IP towards a brighter future on the big screen under the new umbrella of DC Studios.

Already shaking things up, Henry Cavill has been replaced as Superman by David Corenswet in 2025's Superman:

Legacy, and Amy Adams has been replaced as Lois Lane by Rachel Brosnahan.

According to reports, Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will both be recast.

Despite the fact that all of these big actors are due to be replaced, several have been confirmed to remain, making Gunn's new intentions look to be a soft reboot.

Stars including John Cena, Viola Davis, Sean Gunn, Steve Agee, and Xolo Mariduea are poised to return to the DC universe.

However, that list may not grow; it is more probable than not that the majority of the heroes and villains seen on screen in the DCEU over the last decade will be replaced.
