Do you think this will galvanise Smallville fans to lobby for Welling to be considered for the role to?
Not a chance in hell because they won't want this movie to be associated with Smallville at all.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I'm not sure how reliable this is. It's from a tabloid, for starters, with no direct quote saying Snyder will actually consider Routh. He's more along the lines admitting there's some fan interest in seeing him reprise the role.

Also, that article has some inaccurate information to boot: It says Snyder will start work on the film after he completes his publicity tour for Legend of the Guardians, but in actuality won't commence work on the film until he finishes post-production on Sucker Punch, his next film.

It's an article in the News of the Screws - worth wrapping up your fish and chips in but that's about it.

It's tough for me to imagine Welling being that interested, either. Most people want to move on to something different after playing the same role for 10 years.

Well given that after 10 years Welling has yet to play Superman, it would be a different roll.

Welling will never be Superman in a feature film, ever.

At least not until he takes over the lead for Cheaper by the Dozen 3.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Robert Zemeckis has been a fan favorite to direct a Superman movie for a long time. Apparently he was in the running for the Christopher Nolan-produced reboot but he passed on that "faster than a speeding bullet".

http://splashpage.mtv.com/2010/11/01...perman-reboot/

I think Zemeckis would have been an interesting choice for director but he was never a top choice of mine like a lot of other people. Then again, neither was Zack Snyder.

I don't think I would like to see an animated Superman movie.

Actually, now that you mention it, a period animated Superman movie in the vein of the Max Fleischer cartoons directed by Zemeckis would have been pretty interesting.

But with Robert Zemeckis, he would've had the trailer give everything away, so you could make up your mind if you wanted to see it or not beforehand.

So the whole trailer would have spoiled the ending and the movie would be a motion capture experiment.

Zemeckis actually compared movie trailers to McDonald's, saying people want to know exactly what they're going to get... thus explains the trailers for his movies What Lies Beneath and Cast Away.

I would have liked Zemeckis...if it could have been the Zemeckis who could give us the fun of a Back to the Future movie and the heroic folk tale of Forrest Gump. Sadly, I don't think that guy makes movies any more.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I think Zemeckis would have done a terrific adaption of the Tom De Haven novel "It's Superman!!!" One of my favorite books of all time and a great interpretation of Superman that would be right up his alley.

I'm thinking that Snyder will start focusing on "Superman" once his "Sucker Punch" duties are complete...not to mention the fact that he's been co-writing the "Xerxes" script for the last several months (although that obviously would be pushed to the back burner while working on Supes).
