Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

^ I seriously doubt that. From reading all the negative feedback from "Superman Returns" this would probably put people off. As as I've stated I think we'll get a "Batman Begins" type film where we have an established Superman but through the use of flashbacks see where he got to the point he is in the movie and deal with a couple of villains, one will be the primary villain with one a secondary concern.

Another rumor about Joe Manganiello up for Superman.

There was a story back in July about him wanting the role.

Works for me.

I saw that myself. I'd be fine with him I guess.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I didn't remember until I saw it in Moviehole that he'd previously been Flash Thompson in Spider-man. Haven't seen him in True Blood as that season hasn't made it across the pond yet. He looks the part, though the big nose is a little off-putting.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Yeah I thought for a minimal role he was a good Flash Thompson. We really never got to see much of the bullying aspect of Peter's high school life in the first movie, there was just hints of it.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I say go with Joe...if Routh is out and Welling doesn't have a chance...go with Joe. I can't see Jon Hamm as Supes.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Matthew Bomer only seems to be a fanboy wish and a minimal one at that so yeah I'd go with Joe as well.

Why would you even want Welling?

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Did someone mention Jonathan Bennett before? I could have sworn I saw his name in one of the Superman threads, but hell if I can find it now. Anyway, just saw him in MEAN GIRLS not long ago and thought he looked suitable (er, no pun intended). His look tends to be very mutable but in that movie he looked like both Brandon Routh and John Barrowman. So...just a thought.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Bryan Singer talks Zack Snyder and the Superman reboot.

"At the time I left, it would be more odd than it is now. Because it's been four years, my brain is so occupied. I'm sort of like a tennis ball - I bounced from the X-Men to Superman and back to X-Men so I've been in that world a while, and then I'm doing this other film (Jack the Giant Killer) at Warners, which is where I did Superman Returns, so I'm with the same people. So now it (the new Superman film) makes sense. It's a movie I would want to see, I think Zack's so talented and I applaud Warner and Legendary for choosing somebody who's a filmmaker and not necessarily just a shooter. It's Superman, it's gonna be made over and over in one form or another, and I'm sure Zack won't be the last person to touch it either, so in a way it's not in my mind any more. It would have been two and a half years ago."

Interesting that Singer makes it sound like he willingly left when from what I understood, WB just decided to not go with a sequel for Superman Returns. I guess appearing like you left makes for better appearances than saying that you were not hired to return.

This guy has the Superman look, but not Clark Kent.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Yeah, I wouldn't mind Joe Manganiello as Superman but I just can't quite see him as Clark Kent. Same for Jon Hamm but just the opposite: I can see him as Clark Kent but not as Superman. It's easy to forget that whoever gets cast really has to play two roles and has to be able to juggle them effortlessly in order to convince people that he can be two different people who are really the same person.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

According to the Examiner WWE wrestler John Cena and former wrestler Dwayne Johnston are both in the running for Superman. I seriously doubt it. I suppose they could have read but neither are going to be Superman.
