Luther looks like he has gorilla muscles. Don't know if that is accurate or not.

Luther's head is transplanted to a "body of a martian gorilla" after the accident, Evil Con Carne style.

In my opinion the writers made a big mistake trying to keep the gorilla theme, I understand that's a major trait of his appearance, but even in the comic Luther is mostly about keeping up to the standards and expectations and not so much about loosing his original body. The first thing written about him is "Appreciably enhanced physical strength and resilience. Excels at everything tries, particularly aviation and marksmanship—and knows it. Dedication bordering on inhuman. Ruthless leadership abilities.(...)" and this stays pretty much central to number one, even after his accident.

Personally I think that Hopper's height and build are already up to the task (🔥) and the characterization effort would have been better focused in the "weight of the perfection and leadership" thing instead of the costume.

Hopper is a very capable actor and might be able to make this character work. I, however, am more interested in the actor that plays Diego, David Castaneda. It might be the character himself, but he just interests me more I think and Aiden Gallagher who plays Number Five, is really great. He is pretty much the one that can save them all when things go wrong.
