November 22, 2010: Superman Movie Casting Sides Posted

Superman Movie News FeatureFilmAuditions.com has posted casting sides for the role of Clark Kent (aka Superman) for the up-coming Superman movie to be directed by Zack Snyder. Actors who fit the bill are given instructions and addresses for their agent to send head shots to.

    Director Zack Snyder and the VP of Feature Casting at Warner Bros. Pictures, are now officially on the hunt to find a new Superman. They are seeking a male who can appear to be between the ages of 28 and 32. The focus is on talented performers who are either unknowns or rising stars who do not carry the huge price tag of well established star talents. Warner Bros. wants to discover someone it can develop into A-list star status with the iconic role as Clark Kent aka Superman. The talent search will be exhaustive with the studio expecting to audition "hundreds of young actors".

The website also posts the following synopsis for the film, however it should be noted that studios tend to give mostly false details for these casting sides because they know they'll likely leak onto the internet. This would appear to be the case here, as the following paragraph is a description of the "Superman: Birthright" 12-issue comic book miniseries written by Mark Waid. It even uses the same names for the clans in West Africa.

    Clark Kent is a freelance reporter in his early 20's, traveling all around the world covering various news stories. However, Kent is forced to fly back into action to attain a fleeing assassin instead of covering an ethnic conflict between the Ghuri and Turaaba clans in West Africa. Upon his return to form, Kent returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and become the hero he was born to be.

We'll keep you posted on any future developments surrounding the casting of this film.
