X-Men: First Class star Edi Gathegi has already made headlines for his impressive physical transformation in DC Studios' SUPERMAN, and another shot of the Mister Terrific actor is receiving a lot of attention on social media today. 

As you can see below, Gathegi looks like a legit superhero and should look suitably impressive standing alongside the other Justice League members expected to appear in SUPERMAN (among them are Hawkgirl and Green Lantern). 

"Beyond grateful a master storyteller has invited me to contribute to an iconic property and this artistic conversation," Gathegi said when he was first cast as Mister Terrific. "Humbled to join the DC family. Thank you, James Gunn, Peter Safran & Chantal Nong. Up up and away."

We don't know how much action this character will see in James Gunn's reboot or what future DCU projects he'll be appearing in. There have, of course, already been rumblings of a Mister Terrific spin-off. 

Mister Terrific, a.k.a. Michael Holt, was created by writer John Ostrander and artist Tom Mandrake and first appeared in Spectre #54 in 1997. The hero has a genius-level intellect and is an Olympic-level athlete and skilled martial artist.

Holt possesses no superhuman abilities and instead relies on his exceptional intellect and physical prowess. He's proficient in various scientific disciplines and utilizes advanced technology, including his signature T-Spheres, floating robotic spheres that assist him in combat and other tasks. Beyond his crime-fighting activities, Mister Terrific is also known for his philanthropy and humanitarian efforts, using his wealth and resources to support causes he believes in.

He has been a member of superhero teams such as the Justice Society of America and the Justice League, using his intelligence and impressive physical fighting skills to help combat global threats.

Check out Gathegi's impressive physique in the Reddit post below.

He looks Mister.

@Doomsday8888 - Show me the T-balls. 😌

emeraldtaurus - 3/25/2024, 6:35 AM
Looks great, but wheres the frickin Super-suit already !???????????
RedFury - 3/25/2024, 6:41 AM
I really don't know much about this character. But to me he sounds like a mix of Iron Man, and Batman; which is pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing Gathegi's performance, he certainly looks the part!
TheVisionary25 - 3/25/2024, 6:50 AM
@RedFury - his character is also an atheist and has had some interesting moments with talking about religion & stuff that I hope to keep.

He’s also known as the third smartest man in the world

Got a really interesting origin and just a cool character!!.

@TheVisionary25 - as an atheist myself, I really like the sounds of that. Not that it should be something to offend people of faith, but to hear him speak about religion and its grasp on the world from an intellectual point of view would be very welcomed by my sensibilities.
theBlackSquare - 3/25/2024, 6:44 AM
He's that kinda ripped where it looks almost painful.
RegularPoochie - 3/25/2024, 8:51 AM
@theBlackSquare - it is and it's annoying. Bet he's the first one filming his scenes where he needs that body, lol.
theBlackSquare - 3/25/2024, 1:17 PM
@RegularPoochie - Yeah good point. Though when I look into his eyes, I swear can hear him thinking about cheeseburgers.
RegularPoochie - 3/26/2024, 3:25 AM
@theBlackSquare - same lol!
RegularPoochie - 3/26/2024, 3:27 AM
@theBlackSquare - he's like "this is not so bad"

The Snyder version would get jealous. Not the Gunn version. Respect the material.
GhostDog - 3/25/2024, 7:39 AM
Wasn’t this an article already like a month ago? I recall seeing this pic or some version of it
MotherGooseUPus - 3/25/2024, 7:58 AM
@GhostDog - yep. this is just a different pic, but you are correct
RegularPoochie - 3/25/2024, 8:56 AM
@GhostDog - yes, but he is more leaner in this, so I bet he's filming now, or really soon.
Evansly - 3/25/2024, 9:08 AM
@GhostDog - As others have called out yes this was posted with a different photo. I like how this one was captured after only 10 minutes. I'm sure Josh was sent it or found it but picturing Josh refreshing his feeds for muscle pictures is a funny image to me
HashTagSwagg - 3/25/2024, 7:42 AM
I could have sworn someone had already posted this article with that exact image a couple weeks back.
RegularPoochie - 3/25/2024, 8:58 AM
@HashTagSwagg - different image, he is more leaner here and different clothes.
Batmangina - 3/25/2024, 7:59 AM
I appreciate the recycling of content.

Save the planet.

Chicken and broccoli interviews incoming. No one mention PEDs...
EskimoJ - 3/25/2024, 9:52 AM
@Vision85 - You can do it too. Those first pounds are the easiest.

Impressive,Superman should look bigger and more ripped.
RegularPoochie - 3/25/2024, 11:49 AM
@marvel72 - well he is
jst5 - 3/25/2024, 1:00 PM
@marvel72 - I know someone who saw Corenswet a month ago in a local coffee shop...he was pretty covered up in the top half with a big sweat shirt but had shorts on and they said his calves were massive.Lol no much but there is something.

Oh and added the coffee shop was packed and no one had any idea who he was...well besides him(my bud).
TheLight - 3/25/2024, 4:07 PM
@marvel72 - Judging how Corenswet looked in this pic from his trainer back from a few months back, I think we'll all be pleased.

Even his legs looked more toned. And the fact that he's 6'4", which was always my ideal height for Supes, he's going to look like a powerhouse.
plasticman - 3/25/2024, 12:28 PM
Well, he doesn't look like Plastic Man.
NinnesMBC - 3/26/2024, 1:10 AM
Much of the cast has been sharing these workout BTS together lately. I can only assume that they have been shooting in interiors set.
