With SR , it's a stretch since i do know that there are couples who tend to stay young looking for a long time even when they have kids. Other couples grow older a bit.

So that's were the problem lies a bit. They need to make both characters look a bit older IMO. Just cut of the dreamy soft porn filter look that they used for the cinematography and go for wrinkles and stuff. AGE the characters.

And while were at it , why not cast Freddie Highmore who gave a great performance in Charlie and the chocolate factory and Finding Neverland.

Or if they can remove those spots from his face , the kid who played Edmund Pevensie in Narnia , Skandar Keynes

Heck i didn't even know that he bares a good resemblance to routh until i googled that pic .
that is impressive, the similarity, good eye, good call, and a relatively fine young actor. (Id much rather see Jason get his head cut off, but if he lives on, this kid would be one of the front runners for sure). However, dependent on that is how soon is SR2 gonna be made, too late, and he'll be quite old.

It'd be great to see superman and jason team up for their battle with zod!1111

no no no no no no no no no never do you understand never.

I'm not a writer, but the idea of Jason growing up in the trilogy is stupid. Superman needs to be with Lois so I don't believe the movies are going to allow the child to age beyond two years. They may have to change child actors, but the kid is going to stay a kid.

If Singer is smart: The second movie will deal with why Supes and not Richard needs to be Jason's father.

The third movie will be Lois and Supes getting together.

Sucks to be Richard, doesn't it.

No I think Jason will grow up to become supe's sidekick and train with him. This isn't the simpsons and adults though I guess most have kids, probably don't care to watch kiddies in every comicbook movie running around with garbage pails on their heads so WB will require Jason to age for demographic reasons, maybe cast a young pop singer as the Jason for the sequel to get teenage girls to see it, stuff like that.

Re: Cast a teenage Jason

Guys. By the time they're using Richard in any of the movies in a heroic capacity, the actor will probably be a teenager.

I really hope Jason remains a non-factor in the sequels, don't age him just let him stay at home with Lois.

Down with Jason. I don't want Superman & Son running around. In fact, that sounds like heroes for hire: "In trouble? Don't fuss, Call us. SUPERMAN & SON!"

How about Kate Bosworth???
She already looks like a 12 year old boy.
Hmm...Skandar Keynes was a pretty great suggestion actually.

How about Zac Efron? He has that "super-babyface" look that Tristan Lake Teabu has.

You're onto something with that die part....

Not the thread, just the SR franchise.

I personally, don't want the story to jump any farther ahead in to the future, so, I don't see why we would need to cast a teenage Jason (unless, his half alien genes , make him age faster or something )

I mean, do we want another 7-10 time leap to where Jason is a teenager, I think if anything, they might have to recast to a different young kid, so, that he is still 6-7 in the next movie, when ever it happens (or just keep him and let time past, how long it takes them to make the next one)
(though, (IMO) I’d prefer the sequel to be continuous and not have to much time past inbetween)

With that said
in the spirit of the thread, i might say, Hunter Gomez

or how about the Sprouse twins LOL


you get two,... two jasons in one lol

er...ok...I thought he was kinda innocent and cute.

Only problem I had with Tristan was...he needed a haircut wicked bad.

Also I forget who posted it (I'm sorry) but I like the idea of keeping Jason a kid (the Simpsons have been kids for what 20 years?)

How about Jar Jar Binks. Both characters are utterly pointless and we'll never see either ever again.

Just trim his hair a bit, dye it brown and he would be perfect. . . . .
