You're right Ratner also wanted an unknown. But, like I said, if you have a director and producers with a clear idea of what they're looking for in an actor (and backing from the studio) then finding one doesn't have to be a huge, long ordeal. Obviously that's a big "if", but such is filmmaking.
And judging from the previous discord between the studio and the filmmakers, I don't know if I want to possibly deal with that again. Who's to say that the next branch of filmmakers have any solid idea on how they want to proceed, and if the studio will back them?
I'm not trying to say that just because Bryan Singer managed to make a movie, regardless of quality, that he's the only person who can make a Superman
movie but I just don't think he's that incapable that he should be disregarded so easily. Give him another chance. He's talented enough to make it work.
