Hoult, 34, appears to already be sporting a shaved head as he prepares to play Superman villain Lex Luthor in the upcoming DC movie, after Deadline first reported his casting in the role back in November.

Not present in the photo was House of the Dragon's Milly Alcock, after Gunn confirmed her casting as Supergirl in the filmmaker's fledgling new DC cinematic universe back in January.

Gunn, who previously wrote and directed Marvel Studios' highly successful Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, moved to DC Studios — formerly known as DC Films — in 2022 as a co-CEO with producer producer Peter Safran. The two are building a new DC cinematic universe that will begin with the upcoming Superman: Legacy after the studio ended the DC Extended Universe with last year's blockbusters The Flash, Aquaman and the lost Kingdom and Blue Beetle.

Henry Cavill, who played Clark Kent/Superman in the DC Extended Universe, announced he would no longer play the big-screen superhero in December 2022, and Gunn confirmed news that Corenswet and Brosnahan would star in the next Superman movie back in June 2023.

While the plot of the next Superman movie has not yet been revealed, Gunn has noted in the past that the upcoming movie will not feature an origin story for the character. In February 2023, producer and DC Studios co-CEO Safran said that the film will center around "Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing," according to Deadline.

"Superman represents truth, justice and the American way. He is kindness in a world that thinks of kindness as old fashioned,” Safran added at the time.

Superman: Legacy flies into theaters July 11, 2025.
