They probably want him because he's a good looking guy more than anything.

I'm sure Cavill will be fine as Superman. In even the worst blockbusters the acting is usually the least terrible thing about them. Besides, Brandon Routh was a great Superman and he didn't have any acting experience at all.

Perhaps he only had six or seven lines because the rest sounded wooden? He improved a whole lot as an actor by now, I've heard.

Dont worry, it will be. Even if on top it has to make up for everything SR wasnt.

I really think it will be. I just have a gut feeling that it's the film Superman fans have longed for.

Well, I'm sure some diehard fans will facepalm themselves with some of the liberties taken, but the rest of the world will rejoice in perfect harmony.

I recently saw on Blu-Ray and marveled at how bad it looks. When are they gonna give us a better transfer? That and Batman Begins.

Yeah, that's been a consistent rumor. But it could also be true that he had so few lines because the writers didn't have a goddamned clue how to write Superman. Neither would surprise me.

Eh, I think the writers purposefully wrote Superman as the strong silent internal type.

Ok so someone mentioned posting video of the behind the scenes of SR to see the other suit ideas so I went into my vault and watched that part and Brandon's screen test... I officially hate and love Bryan Singer. Brandon was actually Great in those screen tests as Clark and Superman. Bryan crapped all over it! He micromanaged the hell out of that movie. Given Brandon too much direction I feel. But if it weren't for that crap of a movie we wouldn't be getting MOS...
