It'll be interesting to see if and how much they use Superman and Batman to juice up the box office of other solo films. For instance, if Cavill was willing, they could have a prominent appearance by Superman in a Wonder Woman film, potentially meeting her prior to the formation of the Justice League.
Actually I'd go further and just make it a team-up movie with Superman and Wonder Woman, or Batman and whomever. It would still be cool as hell to watch, it would probably be a lot less risky for Warners, and it would be them doing their own thing instead of just copying Marvel (a move which hardly ever turns out well).

GL is likely to be Jordan again, but Reynolds has indicated a less-than-keen interest in doing the character again. That's just being smart, at this point. So, recast.

Burt Reynolds is Iron Man?
He could have been Superman in the 1970s, if they hadn't found Chris Reeve. Actually, 70s-era Burt could well have made a good smart ass playboy Tony Stark, had they made an IM movie then.

ps - awesome find Set Harth!

Yeah, I'd like to see someone in the mould of Daniel Benzali or the late Lawrence Tierney as Lex. But as Buzzkill says, it's finding someone who plays the role best that counts.

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

I dunno if this has been brought up as certain before, but Goyer confirms in an interview with one of the pointlessly-pseudonymous AICN crew that the Lee costume redesign for Supes in the comics was based in knowledge of the MOS costume.

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

The full actuals aren't out yet, but the revised number for Man of Steel is currently $116.7 million for the 3-day opening and $128.7 million with the Walmart previews. Sunday held up so well that it was almost exactly flat with Saturday.

I frankly wish DC would base a lot more of the comics off the movie. The way MOS reimagined things as far as the origin, secret identity, and relationship with Lois feels much fresher and more interesting than what the "New 52" tried to do.

Not to mention that the MOS version of the character feels a whole lot more like Superman than... whatever it was they came up with.

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

Yes, I certainly hope that this movie is a narrative shot-in-the-arm to the comic book continuity and characterizations. I've generally liked the New 52 take on Supes, but it bogs down in a lot of areas. It's not important that the relationships mimic those in the movie, but they'd to well to draw from the overall tone and scope of the movie.

Although I'd still keep the New 52 costume. I'm not sure the MOS version (as much as I freakin love it) would really translate as well to the comics.

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

They're similar enough that no real adjustment is necessary.

Who knows, maybe they'll mess with the shield a bit.

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

Weekend actuals: $116,619,362 for the 3-day opening and $128,681,486 since Thursday night.

That's a new June record, the 15th biggest 3-day opening ever, and the second biggest 3-day opening for a non-sequel ever (if The Avengers is termed a sequel).

The weekend breakdown:

Friday - $44,013,367
Saturday - $36,315,318
Sunday - $36,290,677

The inflated business on Father's Day usually keeps the Sunday drop to about 10%, so staying almost exactly flat with Saturday is a great hold.

Greg Cox's novelization has started to ship! At least with Amazon Canada. It'll be here tomorrow sometime. Also pre-ordered Daniel Wallace's Man of Steel: Inside the Legendary World of Superman behind the scenes reference book which should ship tomorrow as well.

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

So, on to Whatever-They-Call-The-Second-Superman-Film.

Probably Man Of Steel Something-Or-Other; Nolan shed "Batman" after the first of those movies but they've already done away with Superman so no problemo.
