Nicholas Hoult is set to engage in a compelling showdown with David Corenswet in James Gunn’s forthcoming film, “Superman: Legacy,” where he will portray the cunning Lux Luthor, pitted against Corenswet’s Clark Kent.

This iconic rivalry from the comic book realm is poised for a thrilling revival on the big screen. Despite Hoult facing formidable competition in bringing the ingenious scientist to life, his remarkable track record in both superhero roles and his career trajectory has left the DC fan base feeling notably optimistic.

In terms of height, Nicholas Hoult stands tall at 6 feet 3 inches (191 cm), yet even with such stature, he falls an inch short in comparison to his on-screen adversary.

Indeed, the new Superman, portrayed by the striking David Corenswet, boasts an impressive height of 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm). While seemingly insignificant to Hoult, this one-inch difference might spark a sense of envy in Lex Luthor. The ruthless CEO of LexCorp is exactly the type to harbor a complex about height in relation to his archenemy, perhaps fueling animosity due to this minute disparity. Who knows, James Gunn might even incorporate distinctive visual elements like platform shoes to emphasize this contrast between Lex Luthor and Superman.

Regarding “Superman: Legacy,” the film, despite setbacks that halted Hollywood during the summer of 2023, James Gunn has reassured fans that it will still hit the screens in July 2025. This origin story is in its early stages, expected to commence production in early 2024. So far, the film is projected to return to the character’s traditional image as the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way. It will delve into the Kryptonian superhero’s struggle as he grapples to reconcile his upbringing on Earth with his extraterrestrial origins.
