Edi Gathegi’s Transformation as Mister Terrific Has Left Fans Intrigued for His DCU Debut

Being trained by famous Hollywood trainer Paolo Mascitti, who is also behind David Corenswet‘s physique for Superman: Legacy, Edi Gathegi has pulled in huge muscles for his upcoming role. While actors getting jacked for CBMs is pretty unanimous, as most expect them to get as close to their comic book counterparts as possible, Gathegi’s transformation is more notable for one reason. Considering the Aporia star is known for maintaining a slender build, seeing him this jacked has reasonably had fans intrigued for his eventual DCU debut, which will hit the big screens next year.

David Zaslav is optimistic about Superman: Legacy

With the production on Superman: Legacy set to kickstart next week, Studio head David Zaslav stressed that he is optimistic about it. Even though things have been tough for WBD last year, despite Barbie‘s monumental success, following the line-up they had for the next two years, David Zaslav is optimistic that things will turn around soon. He told Variety:

“Bottom line, the studio has really been underperforming — including at the end of the year where we had some real struggle — but we’re very optimistic about this year, and it has given us the chance to have a lot of upside in the next two years.”

Apart from Edi Gathegi’s Mister Terrific, other notable superheroes that are set to appear in Legacy, involve Nathan Fillion’s Guy Gardner, Isabela Merced’s Hawkgirl, and Anthony Carrigan’s Metamorpho. While fans had their doubts following the huge cast assembled for Superman: Legacy, which is reasonable following the past failure of BVS, Gunn assured fans it will play into establishing the new world.

Superman: Legacy will hit theatres on 11 July 2025.
