Nicholas Hoult Talks About His Training Routine to Play Lex Luthor in ‘Superman’ Movie

Guess who’s been hitting the gym harder than a boxer training for a title fight? None other than Nicholas Hoult, the 34-year-old heartthrob, gearing up to take on the iconic role of Lex Luthor in James Gunn’s Superman extravaganza. But get this – he’s not just lifting weights to impress the ladies, oh no, he’s pumping iron because he’s dead set on having biceps as bulging as the Hulk’s.

In a side-splitting chat on the “Inside of You” podcast with host Michael Rosenbaum (aka the OG Lex from “Smallville”), Nicholas spilled the beans on his pre-Lex routines. He revealed, with a twinkle in his eye, that he’s been sweating it out in the gym, channeling Lex’s obsession with his physique straight from the pages of a Superman comic. Yep, you heard that right – real muscles for a real villain. Take that, CGI!

And speaking of Michael Rosenbaum, Nicholas couldn’t resist gushing over the man who set the bald baddie bar high. Admitting that “Smallville” was his Lex Luthor initiation, Nicholas confessed to being a fanboy from way back when he was just a sprightly 11-year-old. Imagine sitting across from your childhood idol and trying to keep your cool – talk about a surreal moment! But hey, props to Michael for being the Lex to beat.

Now, before you start picturing Nicholas with a shiny dome, hold your horses! He’s saving the big shave for later, still in the “mental preparation zone” as he spilled the beans on the podcast. So while we’re waiting to see if he’ll rock the bald look as fiercely as his predecessor, let’s just say we’re flexing our excitement for the July 2025 release of “Superman” like we’re trying to impress Lex himself.
