March 16, 2006: Hugh Jackman is Jonathan Kent?

Many, many moons ago there was a rumor doing the rounds that Hugh Jackman was going to play Jonathan Kent in "Superman Returns". The rumor was debunked as everyone realized that Jonathan Kent was dead in this continuity. Well it seems there was some truth to the rumor after all...

Variety, in a report on Hugh Jackman winning the ShoWest "Male Star of the Year" award, states that the Australian actor has a cameo in Bryan Singer's upcoming "Superman Returns," playing the Man of Steel's young dad in flashback mode.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. has presented us with this larger image of Brandon Routh as Superman (first seen in a USA Today article).
