Superman: Legacy star David Corenswet is evidently taking his physical preparation for the Man of Steel seriously. A recent photo shared on his personal trainer’s Instagram page reveals a significant physical transformation for Corenswet, showcasing increased muscle mass in preparation for his DC Universe debut.

The photo of David Corenswet‘s superhero physique comes in the wake of James Gunn’s recent update confirming that Superman: Legacy is on track for its July 2025 release. With production expected to kick off in a few months, Corenswet’s progress indicates that preparations for the DCU film are well underway.

This level of physical preparation draws a parallel to Henry Cavill’s approach to Superman. Known for his portrayal of Superman in previous films, Cavill set a high standard with his rigorous training regimen and impressive physique. Corenswet’s efforts to similarly sculpt his body for the role demonstrate his commitment to maintaining the legacy of physicality associated with Kal-El.

Set to begin production in March 2024, Superman: Legacy promises a fresh take on the iconic superhero saga, featuring David Corenswet stepping into the role of Superman, previously portrayed by Henry Cavill. Joining Corenswet in this new chapter of the Superman story is Rachel Brosnahan, who will bring to life the character of Lois Lane, the intrepid journalist and Superman’s love interest.

Superman’s DC Universe Future

Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world. The choice to focus on the early years of his career is a bold move that could potentially breathe new life into the character and appeal to a younger generation of fans.

James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
