Superman: Legacy is shaping up to feature some buff superheroes as an image of Edi Gathegi has surfaced online showing the actor super jacked for the role of Mister Terrific.
Previous images revealed that the new Man of Steel David Corenswet has been training hard for the role these past few months as well.
The 44-year-old Edi Gathegi has been in decent shape in the past, but it looks like he used that genius mind of Mister Terrific’s to figure out how to look even bigger. Not only does Mister Terrific have a big mind but also big muscles.
