If they go younger I say Armie Hammer and if they go middle aged, Jon Hamm still.

Re: Superman: Casting Call!

I don't think they will cast Jon Hamm. Armie Hammer would be terrific and interesting since he was cast as Batman in "Justice League:Mortal".

Re: Superman: Casting Call!

As I've said before, I think thde fact that Hammer plays twins - to great acclaim - in The Social Network might be an interesting way of preparing for the dual roles of Clark and Superman; also two characters who look identical but behave differently.

In TSN, he has to be able to let the audience know which one is which and to tell them apart from the other. If he were playing Superman, he'd have to convince the audience that the people within the movie couldn't tell these people - who are one and the same - apart and make this apparent implausibilty plausible.

If any of that makes sense.

Out of everyone who's been mentioned so far, I still think that Armie Hammer would be the best choice given the age range. Here's a photoshop of him as Supes I made a little while ago:

Nah, I don't think they'll go the catalogue model route again. I think even given the age range they've imposed on themselves they'll find someone who at least looks 32 as opposed to 22.

Re: Superman: Casting Call!

I've decided to revive this thread, rather than the one about Matthew Good or start an entirely new one (I think it's time for a Superman: Casting, News, Rumours etc superthread). There's a story in the Hollywood Insider that the movie will feature aq globe-trotting Clark (which we've already heard) and will be partly set in Africa (which is news, as far as I know).


Zack Snyder’s Superman : Man of Steel will be set in Smallville, Metropolis.. and West Africa.
Though the film will feature the ‘red/blue blur’, Clark Kent will be the central focus of the story.
In the Christopher Nolan produced reboot, Kent’s “a young journalist, traveling for the globe, who would rather solve problems and help people without resorting to using his special powers.”
A character breakdown issued to casting agencies this week says that the plot involves Clark getting involved in some sort of battle between two tribes in West Africa.
“When he is compelled to use his secret powers to intervene in a crisis in West Africa, Clark returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and the hero he was born to be”.
Sounds interesting. Definitely somewhat of a prequel, isn’t it? Look forward to hearing about who they cast….
… speaking of, Anne Hathaway is said to be a contender to play Lois Lane in the film. Could work, ’spose?
Filming begins June 2011 on Man of Steel.
So is Miss Hathaway just going to be linked with every superhero project going (Raimi's abortive Spider-man 4, Dark Knight Rises) or is there some truth to this? And is this movie going to be Superman Meets 24: Redemption? And could Superman beat Jack Bauer?

Sounds like they might take a bit from Superman: earth one with a doubtful Clark Kent. Hopefully it won't take an alien invasion to motivate Superman to appear.

Well since this movie isn't being made by the Smallville team, doesn't star Tom Welling, isn't being made to air on The CW, and has flight and tights, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Re: Superman: Casting Call!

Actually the West Africa setting is from "Superman:Birthright" where Clark is a roving reporter and uses his powers to intervene. I have no problem with Anne Hathaway as Lois Lane. This if true sounds promising.
