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

That's one of the suggestions in the article. Not known yet though. I agree with the caption of the article, seems like a waste. He'd be great as Perry or Lex.

He's about 15 year older than Amy Adams, so I guess he can play her dad. (I've seen actors play parent & child with a smaller age gap) Though with Amy being such a "hag"...

Wasn't there something like 10 years between Sean Connery and Harrison Ford when they played father and son?

Glenn Close was nine years older than Mel Gibson when they played mother and son in Hamlet.

9 year-olds have been known to have kids.

It seems unlikely that Queen Gertrude in Hamlet would be one of them.

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

Man, it's starting to seem like this movie will be worth seeing just for the cast ALONE.

Here's hoping most of these people signed up on the strength of the script, and aren't just in it to get a nice little payday...

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

^ Given who has signed on...I'm guessing the script problems have been dealt with.

I hope he is Luthor, I mean he just looks the part.

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

Again the role has already been described as a "General" so that means not Lex Luthor, and yes as we've discussed already Michael Shannon is General Zod.

Rachel Griffiths is younger than Johnny Depp but played his mother in Blow.

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

Christopher Miloni is 50 and Amy Adams 36 and this is an origin movie with everyone "young" so if he was General Lane it would have been fine, but since he's not we can speculate about who he could be. I'm still having trouble figuring out he could be. It was speculated that "Zod" might be the Russian version of the character...Miloni could be a "General" under that Zod's command. I'm at a loss otherwise.

Why are you assuming it's not General Lane? "A general" could be General Lane.
