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

When I suggested Billy Zane, it wasn't just because he looked the part, it was also because I thought he had the kind of ego and cocky demeanor you'd expect from Lex Luthor, so it wouldn't be a stretch for him to play the character. He would have been ideal. One thing I don't like is when the wrong actor gets a part just because they're a big name.

Love that avatar Nerys Myk.

It always cracks me up when comic book fans suggest actors with shaved heads or certain color hair for certain roles.

You DO realize actors have the ability to shave their head or dye their hair, right?? They don't just have to pick the ones who already have that look.
I remember when some fans stupidly kept insisting that the wrestler Triple H should play Thor.

I agree entirely. Zane would have been an example of someone both looking the part and being able to play it perfectly.

I think that Zane is another good choice too.

I would like to see Lex introduced while not being the major villain in the next movie. Something similar to the type of role he played in the opening Brainiac arc in the Action Comics reboot would be my preference.

Bryan Cranston would be my pick if he's not the rebooted Jim Gordon.
I don't want him considered for Lex precisely because I want him for rebooted Jim Gordon.

Insofar as I see no reason why Clark and Lex have to be contemporaries in a film, I say get Terry O'Quinn.

That is a good choice! I would also like to see a Lex Luthor who is older than Superman.
I'm sorry, but I like the idea of a Lex Luthor that's the same age as Superman, simply because he's better when he is one than when he isn't (seeing him kick the crap out of Superman when Superman has no powers is always great; check out part 7-8 of the Up, Up And Away story line in Action Comics for what I mean.) Having Superman defeat an older man sounds too much like an human crushing an ant.

I remember that Billy Zane used to be suggested in the old Wizard Magazine Casting call for Lex. He would be great.

I don't think Cheney can act that good.

And, see, I don't think Luthor is *that* evil.

From Luthor's POV, Superman just appeared on Earth and starting doing good for no reason. The alien clearly has a secret agenda.

Also Luthor always considered himself the top dog, until the god like being appeared in HIS city. He can't stand the fact the public is so behind Superman.

Pretty sure he was say Luthor isn't as evil as Cheney.
