You can't cast Dana as Martha Kent. Because Martha should not be hotter than Lois. And Dana WOULD be, no matter who was cast as Lois.

LOL, just kidding. Dana is a great choice, actually. She's a Supermilf.

If Dana Delany were Ma Kent, then Tim Daly should be Pa Kent!

It would be weird for anyone who has watched STAS. She voiced Lois and she was perfect in it. If she's cast it would be kind of weird hearing her distinct voice coming from Martha.

Agreed. Rachel has a warm aura, and is gorgeous. Fitting for Lara.

Agreed, Rachel would me a good Lara. But she can also play a viscious evil b**ch too. She'd make a rokken Ursa, or other villainess.

They really do need to cast Caviezel as Jor-El. That would almost be as perfect as Cavill as Supes. And Caviezel was already considered for Supes himself, so it's a dead given.

They also kinda share some of the same delicate and emphasized facial features.

Pair Caviezel up with Lena Headey as Lara and you've got the perfect Jor-El and Lara.

Many of these suggestions have been proposed by others on this board. I'm just pulling together my favorites. I'd love to surround a relative newcomer like Henry Cavill with a lot of Academy Award winners/nominees, which is pretty much what occurred in the original Superman film with newcomer Christopher Reeve.



Superman/Clark Kent: Henry Cavill (manip by DorkyFresh)



Lois Lane: Emily Blunt



Perry White: Ed Harris



Jonathan Kent: Dennis Quaid



Martha Kent: Mary McDonnell



General Zod: Colin Farrell



Jor-El: Jim Caviezel



Lara: Rachel Weisz



Brainiac: Daniel Craig

If ZS is reusing Watchmen actors, I wouldn't mind Billy Crudup as Jor-El. He's got the same jawline as Cavill and could pass as his father.



And Diane Kruger for Lara:

Not the biggest fan of Costner, but we could do worse.

A lot of actors could work for Jonathan Kent. Certainly Costner would be just fine.

I love Crudup, and their jawline is uncannily similar, but if Billy does any Jor-El voice-overs, all I'll hear is the MasterCard priceless commercials LOL

I wouldn't mind him as Perry or Lex too. Him as Jor-El would be bizarre though.

BUT I was hoping for an older actor for Pa Kent and hoping for them to be 'grandparent' figures like in 95% of Superman mediums.


He played a mid-western Jonathan Kent type in "Field of Dreams" anyway. I'd be okay with this. Not as amazing as Glenn Ford though.

I don't think we'll be getting the 'God' Jor-El disembodied in an Ice Fortress.

It's been done to death.... and it sounds like Clark is an international freelance journalist overseas as opposed to training in the Fortress.

So nothing to worry about there.

He'd be a bad choice for Lex. It's got to be either Jonathan or Perry.
