Not familiar with Manganiello, but I looked at his IMDb photo gallery, and I don't think he looks as much like Superman as Cavill does. His features are a bit too rough-hewn. Also, his nose looks a little crooked, as if it's been broken, which is unlikely for Clark Kent. Plus he has brown eyes instead of blue.

If he had been cast, though, he would've broken Christopher Reeve's record as the tallest screen Superman.
Cavill's head on Manganiello's body would have been perfect. Where's Dr Frankenstein when you need him?

Jor'El? Pa Kent? Perry White? Zod? Luthor? He could be any number of characters.

I definitely see Costner as Pa Kent. He has the air of earnest, country decency about him.

Actually after thinking about he most resembles the Pa Kent from "Birthright" and "Secret Origins". This intrigues the hell out of me.

Another revelation from the EW interview is that the two finalists were Cavill and Joe Manganiello:

Snyder said, "It was a Cavill-Manganiello race until the end of last month."

"Joe's a great guy," says Snyder, who attributes his final pick to a gut decision. "I really liked him. It was about seeing a quality that inspires this inexplicable, mysterious, cool emotion that says, 'That's my guy.'"
Glad Manganiello didn't get it. I don't think he has the right look, facially.

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

I thought Superman Returns had one of the most catastrophically awful scripts I can remember seeing in a film of this type. So boring, so many bad decisions. The cast didn't bother me at all, though, and I thought the three leads all could have been good in their respective roles if they had been given a better script, and if better creative decisions had been made around them.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how the Superman mythos is handled in this movie. I'm especially curious about how he will end up looking, and whether or not the classic look will be updated in some way.

So who would Kevin Costner play if he were cast in the movie?
hmm, Perry White and ummm I was gonna say Jor-El, but I don't know about that one. But I can definitely see him as Jonathan Kent.

Oh, please, not Costner. The man has negative charisma. Every time I try to pay attention to him, my eyes just drift away to the background, he's just so thoroughly lifeless.

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

^ Yeah see I would normally take that view point with this story but with a Nolan/Goyer script and Snyder direction he might work, especially if it does turn out he's playing someone like Jonathon Kent.

Latino Review say that well-placed sources tell them Costner has indeed been cast as Jonathan Kent, the part most guessed. Great casting.

Totally agreed. This is shaping up to be a terrific cast!

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

So with a bigger name like Costner should we assume that Jonathan Kent is going to be alive for awhile(at least one potential sequel) before he's taken by natural causes?

If this is an origins movie like has been reported, they will likely want to distance themselves from Donner's movie as much as possible, meaning it is quite possible Pa Kent will remain alive by the end of the film.

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

Yet Jonathon recently died in the comics lol, but yeah I agree with JacksonArcher. Especially if they're using "Secret Origin" and "Birthright" as source material where Jonathon and Martha both have pretty poignant roles in Clark's life. Martha in particular. I look forward to seeing who is cast to play her.
