According to Deadline, Gunn has cast Renfield and The Menu star Nicholas Hoult as the iconic villain Superman.

What is Superman: Legacy about?

“Superman: Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas,” reads the film’s official synopsis. “A symbol of truth, justice and the American way, driven by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.”
