Major Roles Cast for “Superman vs Doomsday” Fan Film

The roles of Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane have been cast for the big budget “Superman vs Doomsday” fan film we recently reported on.

Joshua Boultinghouse, best known as the official town Superman of Metropolis, Illinois, will portray the Man of Steel, while Lois Lane will be portrayed by Jenna Fazzino, a professional cosplayer, who, according to director Morgan Strebler, “read for the script and knocked the ball out of the park.”

Titled “Superman vs Doomsday,” the fan film will be shot this year in Vancouver. Executive Producer and Director Morgan Strebler told the Superman Homepage, “I will be shooting in a lot of the Smallville locations, including the Kent Farm and Main Street of Smallville. I will also be shooting in familiar locations around Vancouver for Metropolis such as the Daily Planet.”

Other roles already cast include Aaron Smolinski (Superman: The Movie, Superman III, Man of Steel) as Lex Luthor, and Stan Houston (Selma) as General Lane, while other well known actors have also been cast in cameo roles.

An official website for the fan film has been set up at

It’s pretty common in modern bodybuilding, but the -shall we say- thickness of his abdomen makes him look a bit on the chubby side. Especially with the unforgiving spandex…
I’m getting kind of a late George Reeves vibe.

Josh’s build in the picture reminds me a bit of Wayne Boring’s art from the early Silver Age where Superman is built more like a power-lifter. I agree he could use a little slimming down but his arms seem pretty ready to go.

I didn’t make the connection before, but you are absolutely right.

HGH or insulin gut.
Short answer: The use of human growth hormone, other substances with insulin use is a practice known as “stacking,” which leads to fat build up behind the abdomen muscles. Called visceral fat.

Hopefully the suit comes across a tad darker blue… it a bit light. Between that and Cavill blue…

Was this Superman actor the same guy that played the Superman fill in back in Supergirl season one? Where we only got to see a silhouette of Superman‘s figure? The actor before Tyler?

The kind of blue Dean Cain had in his suit could work well. (Just don’t do that goofy style S he had or the Home-Ec belt buckle.)

I don’t mean to put the hate on anything here or show any disrespect but I don’t watch fan films whether it’d be Superman related or anything else. I don’t like to watch low budget stuff or anything that looks like was shot with a portable Kodak camera. I realize resources are limited but I’m just saying. I don’t call a one million dollar budget a big budget. I mean for a fan film I suppose it is but for a real Superman film no. Besides I’m tired of hearing about Doomsday because that’s always tied to Superman’s apparent demise… Read more »

The quality of fan films are actually starting to get better and better as time goes on. There are several out there that are shot very well and look pretty close to what you’d actually see from a major studio. Not saying that will be the case for this film, but fan films are trending upwards in terms of quality. If anything, it’s probably the acting that could be the downfall of this movie rather then how it’s shot. It will be an upward battle for them, though, with the special effects. Doomsday in particular I would think will be… Read more »

The Vader one that you mentioned, that was the one that the Star Wars theory guy did right? I heard it’s really really good. 🙂

That’s the one, and yea, it’s fantastic. Probably the best thing I’ve seen in regards to Star Wars since the originals. Very impressive what they were able to do.

Thanks for letting me know. I will check it out sometime soon.

There are times when fans can do some pretty amazing things even without the polish and truckloads of money Hollywood can provide. Sometimes with Hollywood they crow about how money they spent and then you see the end product and wonder where the hell it all went.

Congrats all around, but boy, her face is really filtered.

Either way, I’m looking forward to seeing this.
