I know the two already worked together as Father and Son, but Caviezel would have been a proper cast. He and Cavill share similarities.

Well **** me sideways, one of those top tier actors that I thought would never do a comic book movie. Assuming Jor-El's role in minimal, I can't help but film Crowe is being wasted on a bit part role.

I am surprised Russell Crowe would do a small part.Jor-El IS likely to only be on screen for few minutes at begining and possibily like Superman:Secret Origin a message for
Clark when he touches this ship.

This 100 percent proves they are doing the full origin.Now question IS Is Les Luthor In the film.

yeah...Penn doesn't strike me as a noble father figure type. Clive Owen, to me, is just so dull in all of his movies...even in a movie i loved (Children of Men) he was very bland.

out of the 3, Russell Crowe is definitely the best fit and most qualified.

I'm okay with Crowe, although I would have liked a younger Jor-El and I also would have liked the scenes on Krypton to be in Kryptonese with English subtitles, but I can see where getting Crowe overrides using a fictional language.

Not a huge Crowe fan, but I like this move. Pretty big name and the guy has some chops.

So with Crowe joining this, it makes him the only Oscar winning actor on this project. I can't wait to see who they cast as Lara.

Good choice. Crowe is a true A-list actor and brings a real draw. This movie just got expensive. WB won't cheap out on anything now. I'm expecting a 200+ million budget.

I personally think that WB/DC leaked this through Variety to take some of the heat of Lantern. Weird time for a story to come out, the day Lantern opens? Just a conspiracy theory.

That could be true. Just like what they did when Sucker Punch came out.

Awesome news. I've been Hoping for Crowe as Lex , but he'd make an excellent Jor El. Penn would make a pretty good Lex imo.
