With James Gunn’s recent announcement that Superman: Legacy was on track for its planned release date of July 11, 2025, it’s no surprise that we’re getting more casting news now that the strikes are over. Nicholas Hoult, recently seen ripping his limbs off on screen in Renfield, but also a former wearer of the bald look, in 2015 Mad Max: Road to Fury.

Deadline broke the news, reporting that “A movie star has always been in the hunt for this role after Gunn cast fresh face David Corenswet in the title role, and Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane. The studio wanted to go through the casting process after the SAG-AFTRA strike to find an actor to play Luther.
