According to The Things, David Corenswet maintains an intense workout routine, combined with a strict diet to play Superman in the blockbuster Superman: Legacy.

Mascitti applies Corenswet exercises in a 3-day cycle - pulling exercises, pushing exercises and leg exercises, combining standard exercises, focusing on compound movements, developing the entire muscle. After a while, the exercises changed, but the intensity remained high, the weight and number of repetitions also increased.

The actor's familiar exercises include incline pushups, chest presses, shoulder presses, and super heavy exercises for biceps. For each exercise, he practiced 4 sets, 10 times each set. Mascitti revealed that the actor playing Superman is very good at squatting and does not like random movements.

According to The Things, Corenswet's diet is similarly strenuous. Actors must eat large amounts of food for 6,000 calories a day to help nourish their muscles. The coach said: "His diet is very strict. I told David that he had to eat more cereal, and he immediately asked 'what's wrong with that?'. David never stopped wondering." proves that he is the perfect Superman. He clearly has high expectations for himself and his role."

For someone who used to be very skinny (even though he had previously exercised), it was not easy for Corenswet to consume 6,000 calories/day, but he tried to fulfill the coach's requirements. Corenswet is 1.93 m tall and initially weighed only about 90 kg. He was asked to gain 108 kg and have the most toned muscles possible.

Corenswet's b.ody transformation is still ongoing, and his final look for the role of Superman will be seen when Superman: Legacy officially launches on July 11, 2025.

Superman is one of the most iconic superheroes in pop culture history, having appeared on the big screen for decades with a variety of actors. However, not everyone can take on this bright role as a candidate. Typically, two actors "missed the role" of Superman: British actor Jude Law, who refused, and actor Matt Bomer, who was mercilessly "fired" for unexpected reasons.

Specifically, Law also revealed that he was invited to try on the Superman suit, but that was not enough to convince him to accept the role. "They brought me the suit. They thought: 'This might change your mind'. It's not Reeve's (Christopher Reeve, who played Superman) suit. It looks much more edgy," Law said. told. After trying on the suit and looking at himself in the mirror, Law realized that this role was not for him.

Similar to Jude Law, actor Matt Bomer recently revealed that he "missed" the main role in the movie Superman Flyby, scheduled to be released in 2003, for reasons related to his gender. During a conversation on the Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast, Bomer shared that he was chosen by the director for the role and signed a three-film contract with Warner Bros.

Bomer said: "It looks like I was the director's choice for the role. I signed a three-film contract with Warner Bros." However, things did not go as expected. When asked if his sexual orientation influenced his casting, Bomer candidly replied, "Absolutely. It was a time in the industry when such things were still possible." used against you. How, why and who "accused" me, I do not know".

Matt Bomer (46 years old) publicly announced his sexual orientation in 2012 when he thanked his husband and children in an a.ward acceptance speech. This shows that discrimination and prejudice about sexual orientation in the entertainment industry were still very prevalent at the beginning of the last decade.

Even though he couldn't become Superman, Matt Bomer still had a remarkable career. He rose to fame through the television series "All My Children" and attracted global attention in the 2012 film "Magic Mike." His other films include: "The Nice Guys" and "The Normal Heart" .

Jude Law and Matt Bomer's decision to turn down the role of Superman puts these two actors on the list of actors who almost became the "Man of Steel", including Nicolas Cage.
