Fan Art Of Nicholas Hoult As Lex Luthor And David Corenswet As Superman
The choice of the cast that will develop the plot of the movie Superman: Legacy is still ongoing. There is a lot of speculation about the possible actors that will portray the characters that will appear in this movie, such as David Corenswet as a possible Clark Kent and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.
Experts say that we will know the final cast at the San Diego Comic-Con in the summer. This is one of the selection processes that are generating more expectations among DC fans. In addition, Superman: Legacy will also be the first film in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new universe.
Given this expectation, fan art imagining the characters do not stop emerging. Recently an Instagram user posted fan art of how we would see Corenswet in the Superman suit and Hoult in Luthor’s super armor.
Fan Art Shows David Corenswet as Superman and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor
Instagram user @youssef_defenshi posted two images with fan art of the Clark Kent and Luthor characters from Superman: Legacy. In the first image, we see Corenswet in the costume of the last son of Krypton. In the picture, we can see the look that would give the actor to the character, which curiously has some resemblance to the former Man of Steel, Henry Cavill.
The second image shows both characters, on the right side Corenswet’s Superman and on the left side Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor. This image hints that both are ready to fight each other, considering that the villain has his battle armor on and Superman has his heat vision activated.
The post continues to garner likes, showing fan approval. Users congratulated the artist for their work, indicating they looked spectacular and requesting him to design other characters such as Batman or Green Lantern.
This is not the first fan art publication made by this user. In fact, he has previously published other characters from upcoming movies. This developed one of Joker with Harley Quinn inspired in The Joker 2.
These latest fan art of Superman and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor generate expectations about the appearance of this villain in Superman: Legacy. There is no doubt that this is a very juicy project for any young actor in the current scene. Expectations continue to grow, and the time is approaching to meet the chosen ones.
What can we Expect from the Casting of Superman: Legacy?

James Gunn, the director of Superman: Legacy, is not rushing to complete the cast. Comments indicate that they are testing some actors to determine if they can develop the characters for the next Man of Steel movie.
Although nothing has been confirmed, Corenswet is one of the leading candidates to play Superman. This actor has a notable resemblance to Cavill and the bearing that the last son of Krypton possesses. Also, because of the availability of the actor, who is not so loaded with work, he could participate in the film without problems.
Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor is in question due to several factors, such as time. The actor has five productions in development, such as Juror #2, produced and directed by Clint Eastwood, among others. This could cause inconveniences since the actor would not have time to film this movie, leading Gunn to look for another option.
We are in a very particular moment in the history of superhero movies. Fans have a voice thanks to the explosion of Twitter and social media. We are also coming from the Zack Snyder era with Man of Steel. This movie had a huge impact; all fans agreed that Henry Cavill was the perfect Superman.
By the time casting is announced, if James Gunn chooses Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, it will be the least of the problems. The discord will come with the characters of Superman and Lois Lane. There will be no shortage of comparisons and lamentations, as we have witnessed in the past.
