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

http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/7550..._superman.html

Crazy list of 12 potentials...I think Kristen Stewart is out; http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com/2011/...lane-material/

If she was ever really in.

Out of the 12 from the first link...I always liked Parker Posey as Lois.
Why it will be her: It would correct a wrong of some five years or so, when Posey was cast as Lex Luthor's sidekick in Superman Returns, despite being a far better candidate for Lois than Kate Bosworth was. She's got the look, the strong, yet offbeat character, and the undoubted acting ability.

Why it won't be her: At 42, she's a decade older than some of the other actresses whose own age is said to be putting them out of contention. It's not going to happen. Besides, if even Brandon Routh couldn't get in Snyder's film, what chance do any of the other Returns cast have? This may have been a personal crusade of this writer's for years now, but it's probably time to give it up.

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

Yeah cinemablend posted an article last night tracking the rumored candidates. Kristen Stewart The fact that the article above claims she was never contacted about the role in the fist place makes me wonder where these websites are getting their information from. Kristen just started negotiations for "Snow White and the Huntsman".

Websites get information from somewhere?

In this day and age, it's about being first, not being right.

You know, I'm a little surprised no one's tried to suggest Allison Mack...

Allison Mack no doubt has a following and as an actress has many, if not all, Lois qualities that she has shown fit to exhibit as Chloe.

The obvious answer is she would never get a fair shake due to this film wanting nothing to do with Smallville.

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

I think Henry Cavill is an excellent choice to play Superman. Part of the reason the Kryptonians in the 1978 movie spoke with English accents was to create a mysterious, yet educated atmosphere and in those days there wasn't many English celebrities in Hollywood, particulary ones with formal accents

I'm unsure about who should play Lois, I agree that the character is a very important part of the Superman Universe and should be in the movie, however the character needs to be able to carry Margot Kidder's and Erica Durance's formula for the character, while being able to be Feminine and Attractive in an unconventional way

One thing I do think, Callum Blue should be cast as General Zod, if they decide to feature the character in the movie. So what if he played the character in Smallville? He did it brilliantly and completely nailed the standard set by Terrence Stamp, while bringing his own unique edge to the character

I think they would just be incline to stay away from anything that's related to the Donner movies, Superman Returns and Smallville. This is going to be it's own thing. The only thing that may or may not return is the theme song which will probably be covered by The Muse.
