There is NO reason why this movie shouldn't be the biggest block-buster of the year. Helluva cast they got working on there. If Crowe will play Jor-EL, then you'd figure Lara would have to be worthy enough to stand by Crowe on screen. Another possible big name for Lara all things considered. The trend is there. Going to be amazing.

With the cast the way it's forming now I'm actually suprised they didn't have Meryl Streep playing Martha Kent.

Hopefully we get confirmation soon!

This movie has probably the best cast of any movie next year.

Kind of left field casting, but it could work. Wonder if they'll have a scene with Jor-El coming down hard on the council for refusing to heed his warnings. Crowe can definitely pull that off, and I want to see it.

Russel Crowe doing a supporting role. Good piece of casting if true.

Russell Crowe is an awesome addition. The cast alone for this film is nothing short of spectacular.

Crowe will be one of the primary headliners, so it's not really a "supporting" role, even if it is in screen time.

I love Crowe but i dont know if i'd cast him as Jor-El. Are we sure Snyder isnt just casting the best actors he can find to give credibility to his movie? Some of his choices are a bit... "left field" is it?

I haven't seen a single casting that's given me that impression. Perhaps it's because the people he's cast are so versatile, but I don't see much of risk taking being performed. It's definitely ambitious, however. But that should never count as a strike. I've already lost count of how many homeruns Snyder has hit so far. He's batting a hundred as far as I'm concerned.

It was all in jest, but I did get the sense that he thinks these sort of genre films are a bit too silly.

It doesn't hurt he's stepping into the shoes of Brando, but I'm sure he had to be convinced this was a quality production. That gives me high hopes.
Eh, it could be just because he would want to continue from the great Marlon Brando. Could be the money. Could be Nolan. His mind could have changed. Maybe he just wants to have fun and be apart of Superman. Who knows. Just because a great actor joins doesn't automatically mean the script is good.

Now there's no denying there's great actors in this film. It is likely that the script is good, but I wouldn't raise my hands up and say, "This only confirms the script is great!" yet.

I'm thinking it'll be more like Morgan Freeman in Batman - 'and Russel Crowe'. I gotta say I'm genuinely surprised Crowe would take a back seat role like this.

Crowe is hard to work with and he's very picky with his choices. I'm not saying the film is good, but its looking that way. Crowe is a terrific actor anyway, so i'm glad he's cast.

Crowe can play a good natured father just watch his scenes in Cinderella Man with the kids. He can do super intelligent like in A Beautiful MInd, and If Jor El needs to be forceful he can do that too.

just realized that this would be Crowe's first sci fi since Virtuosity in 1995.

He's also a caring father in "The next three days" which btw was an awesome movie.

Yeah, I think Crowe is pretty spot on to be honest with you. He even looks like the Earth One Jor-El.
