SUPERMAN Set Photo Reveals An Intriguing Possible Change To The DCU's Version Of LuthorCorp

Another photo from the set of Superman has found its way online and it reveals a potential link between LuthorCorp and the U.S. military. Take a closer look at this latest sneak peek at the set here...

Work continues on James Gunn's Superman reboot and a new photo from the movie's set has caught the interest of fans. As you'll see below, the "LuthorCorp" logo is emblazoned on militaristic vehicles, suggesting there will be a link between them and Lex in this movie. 

We've already seen what appeared to be a makeshift military base, and the comics have also occasionally gone down this route. The question now is, does Lex work alongside the military or is this LuthorCorp more weapons-based than what we may be used to seeing on the page?

Either way, it seems likely that the villain is going to be targeting Superman with all manner of weapons...including a certain power suit if we're really lucky (it's about time that join Lex on the big screen).

Rumour has it he creates a Superman clone - likely a new take on Bizarro/Ultraman - and if that's true, Lex more than likely will still be portrayed as a "mad scientist." 

"I have been working out," Hoult previously said of his preparation for the role. "There’s that bit in 'All-Star Superman' where he talks about his muscles being real and hard work and all that. I kind of took that as a little bit of a fuel for the fire."

Check out this newly revealed Superman set photo below.

Superman tells the story of Superman's journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.

David Corenswet is playing the Man of Steel, while Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to star as Lois Lane.

The cast includes Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Supporting characters include Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Pa Kent, Neva Howell as Ma Kent, Beck Bennett as Steve Lombard, Mikaela Hoover as Cat Grant, Christopher MacDonald as Ron Troupe, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.

Milly Alcock is also expected to make a cameo appearance as Supergirl before taking flight in her own movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.

Superman is currently set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

@Doomsday8888 - Potus are always good persons not xenophobic maniacs like Luthor
Malatrova15 - 6/15/2024, 2:29 AM
But he will be bald or will he kang?

Lex working with the government happens all the time.

If he becomes POTUS then yeah, now THAT would be quite interesting.

It's never been out of the realm of possibility that Lex can be tied with the military.

If they can connect it more personally so that he's working with Lois' father, better yet.

The Lexosuit appearing on the big screen would be nice, after Jon Cryer did it a couple of times in Supergirl.

I hope Luthor does something so huge and awful that in the closing we see that he has caused Braniac to notice Earth.

@DocSpock - Yeah, like it turns out he was the mastermind behind the Paramount Halo show or he was the one that pulled the plug on Raised by Wolves.

It sounds really odd to say it but this little plot detail has piqued not just my interest but my hope in this project (both the movie and the DCU franchise in general).

Because if LuthorCorp is working on weapons for the military with all these superheroes in the flick and this being the introduction to the franchise, the plot may indeed have an element of metagenetics weapons technologies and if they explain what that means (that people have metagenes and these are the source of untapped potential and superpowers) then it could provide a good catch-all explanation for the world that we're being introduced to in the DCU.

Private industry selling weapons to the gov happens all of the time in the real world, and Lex's technological innovations have always had military applications, so this is nothing new.
