Superman has eyes for Lois Lane, but what's going on with David Corenswet's dating situation off-screen? Is our newly minted Man of Steel tied down to anyone IRL?
Now that we learned the Hollywood actor is set to enter the DC universe in the coveted role of Clark Kent, alongside The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, we're doing some sleuthing. Like The Daily Planet reporter, color us curious about the details! Here's everything we know about the actor's love life.
Is David Corenswet dating anyone?
On-screen, David Corenswet has been tied to some lovely ladies—just last year, he starred as Lili Reinhart's love interest in Look Both Ways on Netflix. When the cameras aren't rolling, however, details about his romances are murkier.
We haven't witnessed any evidence of a relationship on Corenswet's social media pages, nor have we seen him attend any big industry events with a significant other. As he first rose to fame, starring in series like Hollywood and The Politician, he kept details about his romantic life under wraps, and he seemingly continues to do so.
What do we know about David Corenswet's past relationships?
Like his current love life, Corenswet's past is also somewhat unclear. Considering the roles he's taken on in both Hollywood and The Politician involve closeted gay characters, people have questioned his sexual orientation, though he's not commented publicly on the matter.
“My character [River] is not perfect, but he’s sort of like a conscience—a voice of clarity and calm, unlike everyone else,” the actor revealed to Vanity Fair. "In the first episode, you find out he is the only one who is really honest about his emotions and shares how he’s feeling. He’s able to do that with [love interest] Payton."
Unlike peer Michael Cimino, who has been quick to say he won't label his sexuality, Corenswet keeps all discussions to professional matters and not romantic ones.

Who is David Corenswet? Where have you seen him before?
The University of Pennsylvania and Juilliard graduate got his start in the entertainment industry in 2017, and it appears the 29-year-old shows no signs of slowing down. The Philly native has scored roles in Hollywood, The Politician, Pearl and Affairs of State, to name a few. And he seemingly manifested his role as Superman into existence.
"My pie-in-the-sky ambition is definitely to play Superman," he revealed to Entertainment Weekly in 2019. "I would love to see somebody do an upbeat, throwback. I love the Henry Cavill dark and gritty take, but I would love to see the next one be very bright and optimistic."
Looks like he has the opportunity to make that happen! We can't wait to see what he does with this coming-of-age take on the famous hero.
What will 'Superman: Legacy' be about?
Corenswet is set to star in Superman: Legacy, which is considered to be a prequel of sorts, as it focuses on Clark's roots in Smallville and how he comes to terms with his Kryptonian heritage.
"Superman: Legacy is the true foundation of our creative vision for the DC Universe," DC Studios head James Gunn previously said in a statement, per EW.
We have quite a ways to go before we're introduced to our new Man of Steel, as the film isn't expected to hit theaters until July 11, 2025.
