Our source added that the studio are "not re-creating anything or anyone that has been done or seen before, such as Christopher Reeve or Brandon Routh". The studio is going for "a new look altogether", we were told.
Anderson: From my understanding this will be a large casting. I'm sure they will strip LA and NY clean until they have found their guy. I have a team of people keeping their eyes and ears open regarding castings start-up.
If so what do you think you can bring to the character that other actors wouldn't? Would you look to Christopher Reeve's portrayal for inspiration or go in a completely different direction?
Though I love Reeve's portrayal I would try to take it down another path, Superman is such an iconic character who has a foundation of based beliefs, keeping that foundation but not being afraid to explore the possibilities of the character would be a lot of fun. Superman was also a human, therefore he was flawed. I think to see him as a perfect being all the time just makes the character lack reality. He needs true human emotion, be a person we can relate to and that same to look up to as our hero.
