If you look at his overall body of work Joel Schumacher is not a bad director. True, his Bat-films were not good movies (although, I liked Batman Forever), but don't discount everything he has done.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Star - Brandon Routh

Director - Stephen Spielberg, James Cameron, Peter Jackson. Though I'd like to see someone less famous who really loves the material given a chance the way Jon Favreau was with Iron Man. Maybe Neil Marshall?

Writer - Andrew Kevin Walker or Chris McQuarrie, with input from John Byrne and Tom Mankiewicz

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Matt Bomer (CHUCK, WHITE COLLAR) might make a good Superman. He has the right look.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Director - Me.
Screenwriter - John Byrne
Supes/Clark - unknown that recalls the art of Byrne in the man of steel GN
Lex - give the guy a rest. using the same villian over and over I feel has been a real drag on the Superman movies. If he is used, do not make him the main protagonist. Use the billionaire industrialist version of the character in a B plot.
Lois - Ann Hathaway?

Possible Villains:
Darkseid - Michael Clarke Duncan. though this may be a little too hollywood/typecasting
Brainiac - Paul Bettany
Doomsday - CGI? like The Hulk?


I would do a trilogy with Darkseid as the overarcing villain.
First movie Darkseid is seen only as the motivator behind Brainiac finding Superman on earth. Not even Brainiac would be aware of the manipulation. Superman has to take on Brainiac.

Second movie Darkseid continues his manipulation by secretly letting Doomsday escape Cadmus. Superman fights to stop Doomsday but seems to die in the effort at the end. Epilogue scene of the some/all of the "reign of supermen" characters being seen in Metropolis.

Third movie, Darkseid invades. This movie starts with the "supermen" and maybe a few guest JLA members dealing with the invasion. Superman himself would not fully return till the midpoint of the movie. There would be small cut scenes of his "return" before this. I invision a scene where the invasion has reached it's darkest point and Darkseid is giving his monologue in the ruins of Metropolis. Closeup of Darkseid from the back from the shoulders up. A hand reaches into frame and taps him on the shoulder, "who!?!", as he turns. The flames of hell burning in his eyes. POW!!!!!! Darkseid goes sailing from the classic right hook. Camera switches to reveal Superman in all his glory, grim determination on his face. "No one does this to Metropolis. Not on my watch.". The battle is on!!!

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Brad Bird-Director

Eddie Cahill-Superman/Clark Kent
Sarah Michelle Gellar(Prinze)-Lois Lane
David Duchovany-Lex Luthor
Michael McKean-Perry White
Bradford Anderson-Jimmy Olson or Calum Worthy-Jimmy Olson
Allison Mack-Cat Grant
Alicia Witt-Lana Lang
Julie Christie-Martha Kent
David Morse-Jonathan Kent
Malcom McDowell-Jor El
Anthony Head-Zod

The cast is a little out there and mature...for me it works.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

I don't know if he's tall enough, but George Eades who plays Nick Stokes on CSI would make a good Superman I think?

Maybe a few years ago, but he's forty-two now. I can't see Warner casting him as Superman at that age.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Just base it on the Byrne MOS version is all I ask.

Go for relative unknowns for the cast.

Director, I dunno. Someone good.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent
Rachel McAdams as Lois Lane
Liam Neeson* as Jor-El
Hugo Weaving as Brainiac
Hugh Laurie as Perry White

Written by Geoff Johns and John Byrne

No idea who could direct it, though.

*What? He seems to be Hollywood's go-to guy for the "mentor to the young hero" roles these days.

Re: your SUPERMAN!

I thought Superman Returns was just fine. Including Lex. I accept that as true Supes canon, if such a thing is even possible.

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.
All of which explains perfectly why Returns was shit.

That said though, I'd like to see the Lois & Clark cast (minus Lane Smith, sadly) again. They'd be good for one big screen adventure. Don't care who the director is.

No..it didn't suck. It just wasn't written with the ADD audiences that movies must cater to...
