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

http://www.clevvertv.com/interviews/...-of-steel.html

The unfortunately-named Dylan Sprayberry, who plays young Clark in the movie, talks about it here.

So this is the first time they’re using a teenager to portray the young version of Clark Kent in a Superman movie. How does that feel? It was really great. I didn’t even really notice how big it was until I finished shooting. It was so overwhelming that it was crazy, I was like “I can’t believe I just did all that.” In the moment, I was really focused on the work and the acting.
What will people really love about Man of Steel? When Zack [Snyder] and I were talking about it the first time, he was saying how Superman, they want to give it a more edgy feel like The Dark Knight but also make it more realistic and emotional so it’s not just the all-american superhero that saves everyone. He has dilemmas and love and struggles throughout the whole movie, especially when he’s a kid.
Interestingly enough, Dylan is playing the young version of Matthew Bomer's guest character in Glee. Bomer was rumoured to be a contender for Superman both this and the last time out.

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

An excited teenager playing a young Clark Kent? WTF! He should be in his mid 20s and embarrassed by being associated with Superman. That is the recent trend with the role.

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

That description definitely sounds cool. An edgier, more realistic Superman movie could be a really interesting thing if done right.

I'm just not sure Snyder has the skills to pull it off.

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

CBM links make me wary. The source they reference btw posted that prop article on April 1. Unless it shows up on other more reputable sites as well then I continue to ignore CBM postings.

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

^ Why the frown? The tone of the film has been known and speculated about pretty much since Nolan was appointed Executive Producer. They're going for a well rounded character this time around.

Snyder has gone for a much more scaled back (of his own style) and more traditional approach with the filming of "Man of Steel" from stuff I've heard and read. If people are expecting this to be like "Watchmen" style then they might be in for a surprise. Not saying that he is completely ignoring his style, just that it has been scaled back.

That's good news if you ask me. Slo-mo Lois and Clark in porno poses would be a bit much.

Well now, let's take a look at some footage before we come to any hasty conclusions.

Here's a set video, but there's not an awful lot to see. A red cape can be seen, though...

I had heard they had a video they were going to release. It is a disappointing video. Not much to see at all.
