This is going to be a beastly cast.

What?! Not my first pick but I could go with this. I knew that they couldn't get Daniel Day Lewis if they wanted to anyway.

Nice!! He was one those guys I had in the back of my mind for Jor-El, but never thought he'd do it. Hopefully this pans out with Nielson as Lara for a Gladiator reunion.

Snyder might be one big Gladiator fan.

Must be. Why else do you think he did 300?

I'm not the biggest fan of Crowe's, but I don't mind this one bit.

Crowe is great. Going to be tough to follow in Brando's footsteps. We'll just have to see if he's up to the challenge (and if the script is up to the challenge as well, obviously).

a movie Jor-El who is not Brando??!! could it be??!!

Re: Russell Crowe in talks to play Jor-El
 
I'm cool with this, especially if he uses his proper accent. Something in me likes for Kryptonians to use different accents, as to not sound like everyone is from Smallville USA. Pun intended.

With all due respect, as long as Crowe doesn't elect to give his performance via cue cards, I don't think he'll have any trouble wiping the the floor with Brando's performance.

From the other actors that was courted for Jor-El, I actually wouldn't mind with Sean Penn instead.

Brando was awesome.

Russell Crowe ay?

not someone i really considered, but he certainly fits with the cast they've already put together. i've always liked Crowe as an actor so it would be cool to see him as Jor-El. i'll definitely take him as Jor-El over Clive Owen or Sean Penn. wonder if they're gonna dye his hair black though.

Eh...Sean Penn would've been weird...Clive Owen I could've lived with, but out of the three Crowe would be my pic. I hope he sinks his teeth into the role and doesn't phone it in because its a comic book movie.

He was good, but I think his performance can be topped.

I disagree, I would have like Penn instead but I could live with Crowe. I didn't even know that Owen was actually in contention as Jor-El , let alone for the movie at all.

Penn would've been too out there for me. I'm all about Crowe.

Trailer Announcer Guy:
"Man of Steel! With Academy Award winner Russell Crowe...Academy Award winner Kevin Costner...Academy Award Nominee Diane Lane...Acade....Screw it, you get the point!"

All the casting news has been kept very secret though. We didn't even hear a rumor, it just came out of nowhere.
