How old is that Superman choice anyways? Not trying to argue, but I don't think he looks that much like Superman... Your Jimmy choice is good. I think I might have heard that idea somewhere else. And of course Billy Zane is just about everybody's choice and that one is good as well. Lois is okay... I'd prefer a lot of others to play her though.

I just find 'em. Grin Look, I am for any actor that can carry The new movie. Just make sure that he can act. Not someone aping Christopher Reeve, but someone that can make me believe that this man is Superman.

Personally, I think that fans were spoiled by Chris's portrayal of the Man of Steel and accepted Routh's take because that there wasn't a Superman movie made since the early 1980's. That was any live action movie would be welcome even though the story of SR left a lot to be desired.

I only hope that whoever gets the part, is someone that has a screen presence that can carry the picture, and a story that is worthy of the Man of Steel.

I 100% agree especially the part about Routh and SR.

He might be a good choice. He defiantly has the look. What do you think?

What about Milo Ventimiglia for Superman? He has the basic look of him.

Well, he was a "Hero". Grin He would have to bulk up a bit like Christopher Reeve did. He might be in the running.

He seems to have the menace to play Luthor. Good choice.

Yes you can change your casting Shock

Also Tim in Die Hard 4 was another reason I pictured him playing Lex. His character didn't have attitude/personality like Lex, but there were glimpses. He was cold, had no heart, etc.

If you've seen the movie you should know where I'm trying to go with this.

Yeah I figured, Timothy would be a good choice. He does scream Lex Luthor to me, I was hoping he did for you guys too Cool

The Red-Blue Blur
Here's my casting so far now (it's changed for some such as Hamilton and Lex of course)...

Superman/Clark Kent - Milo Ventimiglia, Matthew Bomer, or Josh Hamilton
Lex Luthor - Timothy Olyphant
Lois Lane - Zooey Deschanel
Jim Olsen (All-Star version) - Sterling Knight or  Jesse Einsberg
Perry White - John Michael Higgins 
Martha Kent - Sally Field
Jonathon Kent - Fred Willard
Proffesor Emil Hamilton - Jeremy Irons or Brian Cox (imagine how he looked in Red Eye)
Winslow Schott/Toyman - Stephen Tobolowsky
Mr. Orr (from The Man Of Tomorrow) - Jeff Bridges

I forgot all about this guy. I never saw Hitman but I just finished watching Live Free or Die Hard and I can definitely see this guy playing the industrialist Lex Luthor who is also a brilliant technician in his own right . In a modern context, I guess Lex Luthor would essentially be an evil Steve Jobs. lol

This would be the Lex Luthor with deeper motivations for his war with Superman (part jealousy, part fear, part misplaced-righteousness, etc (you know. some of the good stuff they used to do on Smallville).



I'm all for this choice. BRILLIANT!!!

why does it seem like some actors are just perfect for certain roles but then once we get to Superman it's just "maybe he could pull it off..." I think there's an insanely high bar for him. have they ever casted a previously well-known actor as Superman? maybe we should be looking for totally unknowns. sometimes an actor seems good for the role, but you can't picture them as Superman, because you've seen them differently so many times before.

Other than Supes, I have always had rather unconventional choices for the cast...

Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman - John HammSmile
Jonathon Kent - Richard Gere
Martha Kent - Diane Keaton
Jimmy Olsen - Michael Cera
Lois Lane - Lena Heady
Ray Wise - Perry White
Lex Luthor - Michael Ironside
Jor-El - Gerard Butler
Lara-El - Diane Lane
Young Clark Kent - David Henrie
Mercy Graves - Kate Beckinsale (make her blonde)
Brainiac - Lachy Hume

the infant from Krypton is now the Man of Steel... Superman!
 
superjosh34
has anybody considered Harrison Ford as Jonathan Kent? it's just an idea, I'm not sure. but I'm sure of Evangeline Lily as Lois Lane, I think that'd be great. I like the idea of Jesse Eisenberg as Jimmy, too.
