David Corenswet, the actor chosen to portray Superman in the upcoming film “Superman: Legacy” directed by James Gunn, has undergone a remarkable transformation that has captured the attention of fans and enthusiasts alike.

Initially, some observers had reservations about Corenswet’s suitability for the role, considering him somewhat “gangly and awkward” when his casting was first announced. However, recent gym photos captured by fitness trainer Paolo Mascitti, who is reportedly collaborating with DC to prepare Corenswet for the role, reveal a significant transformation in his physique.

While Corenswet’s face remains concealed in the gym snapshot, it is undeniably clear that his body has undergone a noticeable transformation. His muscular physique now aligns more closely with the physical attributes traditionally associated with the iconic Superman character.

This transformation represents a stark departure from the physique Corenswet displayed earlier in the summer when he was seen with a different body type that some described as a “hot dad bod.”


It is worth noting that Corenswet has already satisfied numerous key criteria for the role of Superman, including facial resemblance, hair, height, and now a more muscular physique. As filming for “Superman: Legacy” is scheduled to commence in Spring 2024, with the film set to be released in Summer 2025, fans are eagerly anticipating Corenswet’s portrayal of the beloved superhero on the big screen.
