Default Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion) - Part 1

I don't see why he would keep casting massive names like Will Smith, Johnny Depp. No other filmmaker does that.

And in the ensemble movies Singer often makes, lesser-known actors would be needed or the salary bill would be sky high.

Also, Routh did look like Reeve's Superman, so that would be a factor.

There's a bit more to it than sexual tastes. I'm not really keen on this discussion to be honest, it feels a bit uncomfortable to be dissecting a well-known filmmaker's private life on a public forum. Especially when it's all just gossip and conjecture.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
