your SUPERMAN!
 
Superman Returns gets, I think, a pretty bad rap. It wasn't great, but it I liked it..(could have done with out the suit he wore)...

If you were Warners, and it was up to you to chose your idea director, and star who would it be?

Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve.

What? They're not available? Oh. Never mind, then.

William Shatner as Superman. How awesomely terrible would that be!

No "name" director, or "name" writer, or famous actor. Instead, aim for an entire cast/crew of fresh faces. Someone who feels passionately about Superman and understands the history, but doesnt' write it to appeal to fanboys and teenagers. A director who wants to have it true to the story's feel. Someone who looks like and emboies what Superman should be.

Oh, and no John Ottman.

Ditto from over here, too.

Reeve pretty muc defines Kal-El/Superman/Clark Kent for me. That first movie perfectly nails the essence of the character and his story.

Because it does get a bad rap...just start a poll here, and see how it does...I know, I did a poll a year or so ago and it got thrashed...which is okay,we all have our own tastes...

That all depends on what you mean by "name". Superman: The Movie had a "name" director and a "name" writer and it turned out great. Superman Returns didn't have "name" writers and I wouldn't necessarily call Singer a "name" director, but that movie tended to be disliked by many.

Very true..SUPERMAN had two name actors (Brando and Hackman..even Glen Ford) to lure in the public. I dont think Donner was a name actor at the time, but definately Mario Puzo was big....

Yeah, but compare those "name" actors to today's "name" actors and ... fresh faces, please.

It doesn't matter who is wearing the suit or playing these other characters if the script sucks and the director doesn't understand who Superman is and why the character has endured for so long.

I think it could be done..

Jorel...Brando...Connery/Anthony Hopkins could do

Luthor...Hackman, I actually liked Spacey, and even the kid
from Smallville..so Luthor, to me, is castable with anyone made bald...My pick? A bald Alec Baldwin

Jonathan Kent....Glen Ford...Harrsion Ford

Martha Kent...Don't remember actress in Superman 1....Glen Glose

SUPERMAN/Clark...Reeve...an unknown who LOOKS like Neal Adam's Superman

Lois...Margo "where is she now" Kidder....Megan Fox or some other contemporary

Director? Peter Jackson...Cameron...either SCOTT brother
