J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'
The last time J.J. Abrams had the Man of Steel on his mind, things didn't exactly work out as planned, but given his resilient career in television and film since 2002, the creator is in a better position than ever to make a hypothetical return to the property. However, despite the support of high-profile fans such as filmmaker Kevin Smith and many in the fan community, at this point, nothing is officially moving forward with Abrams' version of Superman.
"No one has talked to me about it," Abrams told MTV News. "Obviously Iím sure Warner Brothers has a plan for what they want to do."
"Writing that script was a long process," he explained. "It was a very passionate character for me. As a kid growing up it meant a lot to me. It would be wonderful and fun to see that brought back. I donít know what Warners is thinking or what their plan is. It would be a blast."
With that in mind, here's my casting for a potential J.J. Superman movie;
Superman/Clark Kent-Chris Pine
Lex Luthor-Zachary Quinto
Perry White-Bruce Greenwood
Jimmy Olsen-Anton Yelchin
Lois Lane-Zoe Saldana (if M. Night Shamalan can cast whites in Asian roles, I say it's time to cast POC's in white roles)
Steel/John Henry Irons-Corbin Bleu (?)
Inspector Bill Henderson-LeVar Burton
