Other contenders and Lex Luthor

Other alleged contenders are Euphoriastar Jacob Elordi and British actors Andrew Richardson (To call a spy) to Tom Brittney (grantchester). However, sources from the equally respectable Deadline cite Nicholas Hoult (The menu) as the main contender. Hoult, 33, is by far the biggest and most famous name on the list. However, The Hollywood Reporter claims that Hoult is definitely a Warner Bros. favorite but not for the role of Superman. The magazine claims that Hoult is in the running to play Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor. He was previously in the running for the role of Batman.
