I know it's not finished yet, this is just what I have so far.

lol, Dr.Cox as Brainiac.

Brainiac: Now listen here Kryptonian, I'm going to pretend you actually pose a threat to me and you're going to hit me as hard as you can and wait for it, I'm going to send an energy blast and knock you away, Which you will then fight back and surprise I send another energy blast towards you!

Sorry I had to, Good choices though.

Hehe...actually, in the pre-SR days when we still thought that the new movie was going to be a re-start, I suggested Jason Isaacs to play Lex. He was, and still is a great choice.

I said it in another thread,i'll say it here to.
I would love for Lex to be in it, but as a cameo only.
Have him up in Lexcorp tower, sipping on a drink and watching the fight between the league and the omacs. He's not really pulling for either side, but he's ready to take advantage of the outcome.
Lois could be reporting the fight live on T.V., with just a quick cameo of her as well.

I loved Spacey's Lex, definitely the best actor and portrayal in the entire movie IMO.

I think Zane could do a great job.

Not that I don't accept your P.O.V., but could you go more into details, just to discuss it a bit, you know?

Milo V is wrong for Superman. The most he could hope for is perhaps Spider-man at best.

Biel is too much of an emotionless ***** for Lois Lane. The Lois character has that aspect to her but Biel can't bring the heart to the character. Its out of her comfort zone and range.

Jayma Mays is unattractive. Not that Lana needs to be a knockout; but after we got Annette O'Toole....they should cast that part better than Jayma.

Phoniex is okay for Luthor but I've heard more threatening, imposing actors for the role.

I don't know, something just clicked for me when I thought of him as day-dreaming Clark Kent and Superman.

We don't really know what she could do with the right script, you know?

I find her really sweet... honestly... what do you think of Phoenix and Rockwell?

Phoenix could work I guess.

I cant comment on Rockwell objectively; I havent seen him in enough films.

I say keep the cast as it is. Just change the director. Bryan Singer is obviously too busy for Superman.

Default Re: Your Ideal Cast for a Superman Reboot, if Ever There is One

My ideal casting can not be in a movie on this times because they are not mostly alive.

But here they are.

Superman and Clark Kent: Christoper Reeve and if we need some one that not be Reeve for young Clark would be brandon Routh.

Jor El : a young Marlon Brando

Lara: Cecilia Milone

Lois Lane: I dont know for sure, but someone who looks like margot kidder, like courtney cox or a woman like her.

Lex Luthor; Telly Savalas

Perry Withe: George Peppard

Jimmy Olsen: a young Mat Damon

Pa kent : Glenn ford

Martha : eva mari saint

Supergirl Milla Jovovich

Lana Lang: Mia farrow

The problem is a lot of people watch Heroes and Prison Break thinking because they like the tv shows they should cast them for JL.

Default Re: Your Ideal Cast for a Superman Reboot, if Ever There is One

Superman/Clark Kent -Henry Cavill


zooey deschanel- Lois Lane


Director Danny Boyle, Ridley Scott or Tony Scott

I would keep Spacey as Lex but make him play the role serious and give him something really evil to do other than get richer off real estate
