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

Has there been any word as to who'll play Jimmy Olsen, or if he'll even be in the movie?

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

^ As I indicated earlier in the thread no the only Planet staff that have been cast so far are Perry and Lois.


Amy is hot as hell but I'm also a big Eric Durance fan as well...that is until she started being given Chloe dialogue.

I think what Zack Synder is trying to do is go against perceived looks of what WE know.


It's like Daniel Craig as James Bond. He doesn't look the part but pulls its off tremendously.


Laurence Fishbourne
Amy Adams


They're people that you don't think will fit a Superman movie but will probably knock your socks off.

Any idea who will be designing the costumes yet? I ask this because if it is someone well known we might be able to get an idea of what the suit will look like.

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

^ We've seen the suit already dude. It was revealed a couple weeks ago . Zack Synder acknowledge in one of his early interviews last year that he was a big Jim Lee fan. I also believe he stated Curt Swan was one of his favorite Superman artists as well.

I think Amy Adams is gorgeous, and I think she'll be a great Lois.

Images and video of Amy Adams on set...she still has red hair thank God!

[edit] More images of Amy on set. http://cinelogin.wordpress.com/2011/...-adams-no-set/
Those pictures just add to my negative feelings about this cursed movie.
I'm with you. Mundane set photos infuriate me so much! If that horrifying Smallville seal is any indication, this movie is going to suck worse than The Quest for Peace.

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

Damn! How could I miss such an announcement?! I've been a bit out of the loop when it comes to MOS, but the new suit looks pretty cool (just did a google). It's much more "practical" than the previous suits and hopefully it will be stated to have been made out of Kryptonian material, rather than us just having to accept the suit never gets damaged!

Probably adds to my understanding of why I'm not "all in" for this yet.
I like Daniel Craig and he is a good spy, but for my $$$ he isn't Bond. Not the cinematic Bond we've come to know for 4 decades and that is who I want to see.

As long as it's not Shia Labeouf...Although he would probably do a really good job.

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

If any other Planet staff are added I think Jimmy Olsen will be played by someone unknown. Much like Sam Hungtington in "Superman Returns" I had no idea who he was before SR.

But she's, like, in her mid-30s! Who let her out of the retirement center?!?!?! And do they finish filming by 4? Because that's when dinner is, followed by the latest rerun of Matlock.

Very funny, She certainly doesn't look like she's in her mid 30s! I'm pushing 50 so to me she is young.
She's 36, but doesn't look like it at all! After she was announced, Adams as Lois was perfect casting (at least judging by the past few things I've seen her in).

IMHO Amy Adams will be the most attractive Lois yet!
She's not up against steep competition. Well, maybe Teri Hatcher.
I dunno. I think all the actresses who've played Lois have been very attractive. Margot Kidder might be the weakest link for me, but she wasn't ugly by any stretch of the means.


And, yes, I was parodying the few, much earlier, comments on how people were complaining that Adams was a hag. Yes, it didn't make sense then, and it still doesn't.

In these pics I just don't see her as Lois Lane.
