James Gunn Breaks Silence The Craziest ‘Superman: Legacy’ Casting Rumor Yet

Here's....JOHNNY!

Lex Luthor Superman DC Comics

Rumors have been aplenty on who James Gunn will cast as Lex Luthor in Superman: Legacy. However, could the perfect DC Universe casting be found in beloved adult film actor Johnny Sins?

Fans have been joking about Johnny Sins as Lex Luthor ever since Henry Cavill was cast for Man of Steel. With the DC Universe on the lookout for a new actor for the role in Superman: Legacy, jokes have once more flared about his casting, so much so that James Gunn took to Twitter to confirm he hasn’t been cast in the role.

Johnny Sins is an incredibly versatile actor, having played everything from a plumber to a doctor to a karate master, making him a perfect fit for such a dangerous villain in the DC Universe. Though given the adult film star is one of the most prolific in the industry, it’s not likely he’d take the pay cut to play Lex Luthor in Superman: Legacy, which is certainly why James Gunn didn’t cast him.

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 Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.

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.
