Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I don't know how this film is going to be as good as the 1978 Richard Donner version, let alone his version of(as well as the cinematic edition of)1980's Superman II.

Granted, the story of Superman is a generational thing(i.e. Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age*), but surely the staff at Warner Bros could have picked some better actors for this reboot of the franchise.

All I can say is this. They should replace Kevin Costner with another actor to play Jonathan Kent. Let alone find an American actor to play The Man Of Steel.

No offense to Henry Cavill(or whatever his name is), but having a British actor play the Son of Jor-El doesn't seem like the right fit.

The same could be said for this American actor playing General Zod.

*The Bronze Age is the Christopher Reeve era of the late '70's and early '80's.
