Re: Casting Superman?

Jon Hamm as Superman is a genius crazy idea. I'd never guess it, but he does have real gravitas as an actor, which would be a nice different angle to play Superman. Somebody who could give the role a wry bit of conviction, rather then the boy scout that's often typical.

Re: Casting Superman?

I remember hearing that they cast Routh cause he did a great Clark Kent. He supposedly dressed up as him for Halloween when he was bar-tending at a bowling alley.
I have a feeling that they wont use him tho. They will want a totally clean break from SR

If Nolan reuses actors he's worked with before, Guy Pierce, Aaron Eckhart, or Hugh Jackman would all be good choices.
I don't think I could see Hugh Jackman in the part. However, I think that Aaron Eckhart would be good. I think he'd bring a similar energy to Jon Hamm.

And can I have Alana De La Garza as Lois Lane?

The correct answer is Jon Hamm:

I can see that working.
So can I. OTH I could accept Tom Welling as Supes. Just give him an appropriate haircut and there you go.

Routh was a block of wood. Let's be clear, he was cast only because he bears a passing resemblance to Reeve.
Agreed. Yet while Chris Reeve still managed to look masculine in costume Routh looked...metrosexual.

Kingdom Come movie? Starring Jon Hamm as Supes, Patrick Warburton as Cap Marvel and Michael Keaton reprising The Batman.

Entirely possible, given recent events at the box office.

If this were a few years ago, I would have suggested Paul Gross, aka the Mountie on Due South, but he's too old now for the part, I think.

Ryan Reynolds can dye his hair and play Superman too. It'll help them save money on the Justice League movie.

I'm even having trouble seeing him as Green Lantern.( or Flash for that matter) Bwahahahah Blue or Gold seems a better fit.

Re: Casting Superman?

Well when Rumors were going around that the fans wanted Tom Welling after 5 seasons as Clark Kent on Smallville to don the suit on the big screen,but the producers said no.

As to routh I say lets give him a chance to wear the cape again IMO.

Signed
