Well Jonathon Kent is the obvious choice. I couldn't imagine him getting a different part from that. Could anyone think of any other realistic possibilities? Maybe its some dude in africa. however my money is on JK

I don't have the link to it or anything and at this point i believe it is just a rumor but it was said that the movie would take place with pre-Superman clark kent traveling as a journalist. A page taken from birthright. It was something like that.

If someone has the link or the plot summary feel free to post it

Interesting rumor. I think Costner would make a great Jonathan Kent or Perry White. I don't know the Sam Lane character that well but I'm sure Kevin could pull that off too. I actually think Costner is one of the best actors of his generation... unfortunately a few missteps (Robin Hood, Waterworld) marred his image as an actor pretty badly for a bit. But as long as he stays the hell away from Kevin Reynolds, he does fine.

The whole African rumor thing has very light weight to it, me thinks.

Jonathan Kent, Perry White or Sam Lane. Costner would be great as any of them. He was brilliant in Mr. Brooks.

Yeah. Considering all the secrecy surrounding this movie, I don't think anyone actually knows what the story is going to be.

exactly. I think people are too caught up on the Birthright rumors, though it makes for great discussion. Remember, Goyer wrote the intro to 'Superman: Secret Origins' so obviously he's not sticking to one source (like with Nolan's Batman)

But can you throw us a frickin bone every once in awhile and just say what the role is? I'm not looking for major plot points, just roles. Apparently that's too much too ask for.

True dat. Mr. Brooks was such an awesome movie. Hell, DANE COOK was good in it, miraculously. I wish it would have made more money because I read an interview with Costner where he hinted that he wanted to make a sequel.

Why? he's old too, and a mediocre actor, with no star power.

He also wrote an excerpt for Superman: Earth One and the story that broke that announced that he was writing the new Superman movie suggested that he was going with a more Byrne like take. To me it sounds like they're going with an origin route that is going to take various elements from Superman's many origin stories like Waid's Birthright, JMS' Earth One, Johns' Secret Origin, Byrne's Man of Steel, and Donner's Superman the Movie.

I'm still hoping that if they are doing the fall of Krypton they go with Johns' version. I think a lot of us would be pleased with 'Brainiac' vaguely adapted actually.

If they did the fall of Krypton I think Earth One did it the best. Hell to be honest I think they should use Earth One as the origin for the movie. It would have tons of action and be something new that the GA wouldn't have seen before and really set it apart from SV, L&C, and the Superman film series.

The thing I liked about Johns' version is that it has Zod as a hero trying to save Kandor and his attempt to overthrow the Kryptonian council. Therefore it would not only set up Brainiac but also Zod as a character for the second or third installment should it get there.

It also shows a Krypton of more than one capital city. Should they go that way they could get Kandor, Kryptonopolis and Argo in making the planet seem more real. I think Zor-El gets unreasonably jilted in other versions too. Have we ever seen how he says goodbye to his brother? Zor-El is often underrated as an intellect in favour of Jor, when he is part of the story he usually saves a reproducable sample of his race.

To be honest I could care less about Zor-El and all. I personally prefer the S:TAS origin for Kara where Superman is the last of his race and Kara comes from a neighboring planet and Superman looks after her though like she is family.

As for Zod I can see your point there I do like how Johns redid his origin even though it does take a page right out of Star Wars it is a good way for them to do those guys.

Good to se people useing this thread for NEW NEWS! lol
I really like the fact that they are using good actors along with a Snider movie I think we are finally going to see a Superman eppic.
Costner as Pa Kent is a great choice.
Now Zane or Jason Isaacs for Luthor
Olivia Wilde for Lois
Robert Duvall as Perry White
Justin Bieber as Jimmy Olson <--- LOL!!! sorry

Thumbs up Re: News flash!

Quote:
The DC Nation panel at the Emerald City Comicon this weekend saw a question posed to the panel regarding how close the costume designs for the new Superman movie and up-coming Wonder Woman TV show were to those seen in the comic books. The question was fielded by DC's Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras who sought help from Superman comic book editor Matt Idelson.
  • "I haven't seen anything on 'Superman,'" Harras replied. "I've seen some sketches for the Wonder Woman costume and I will say this today - there is every intent to make them similar. People do these TV shows and these movies because they love the characters. And with DC being able to work much more closely with Warner Bros, I think you'll be happy with what comes across."
    This led to another fan asking about the level of involvement DC Comics had with the Superman movie. He cited the fact that Geoff Johns and David Goyer had worked together in the past, and since Goyer is writing the Superman script, the attendee was hoping there was some kind of coordination between the comic and film iterations.
    Harras looked to Idelson with a smile and said, "Matt actually spoke with David Goyer this week. He cannot tell you anything." Idelson, however, did say that "there's definitely a connection." He also assured everyone there that "Geoff and David talk all the time, so there is interaction."

  • Did any of you see this? I was trying to check threads to see if anyone brought this to attention. My apologies if it has already.

    But this is a really good news here

Just read an blurb about how Manganiello never put on the suit, never tested. Shooting conflict with TB. All good.

He wouldn't have gotten it anyway. Never really stood a chance.
