Not at all.

I'm not a fan of the Amy Adams casting, but I'm aware that was obviously a Nolan choice as well. She's a favorite of his.


Snyder will be blamed if the direction sucks. If he goes for the overuse of his slow-mo action scenes, if he goes for an overly stylized filming look and overuse of green screen etc

Amy is a fantastic actress. I don't understand why people can't get behind her

WB wants Spider-man, Iron Man, Dark Knight numbers.

JJ would probably deliver a more lighthearted crowd-pleasing version of Superman than Nolan/Goyer/Snyder.... but I probably wouldn't like it as much.

I prefer the more grounded serious and sophisticated Nolan approach I hope we get.

Its funny that Amy Adams was a freak of the week in a early Smallville episode and nows she is lois lane. I know on other boards it bothers Welling supporters that she bagged a role when he didn't

Crowe is certainly the most Brandoesque actor out there. Very good choice!!

if Cavil wasn't such a strong charismatic actor I would think this movie to be stolen away from him.

But this is going to be insane.

Deadline.com is reporting that Russel Crowe has been cast as Jor El, so I guess the talks are over!

It did in the 2nd draft. That 1st draft he did was to show WB that his general story concept was bigger and more ambitious in scope than the Batman Vs Superman that WB had just greenlit. By the 2nd draft the JJ Abrams script was pretty much a traditional Superman script, in which Ty-Zor was basically another name for a character that was essentially Zod. Krypton did explode, only Kandor was floating intact.

At first, I was not at all a fan of this potential casting. I honestly did not care for him in the slightest in Robin Hood. But then I remembered his performances in Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind and I was like "fudge yea".

I hope there's no phones on Krypton.

Jokes aside, decent casting. Will be intrigued as to how much we will see him really.

Crowe better not get top billing. He can get top billing in the prequel: The Last Days of Krypton.

OMG! This will be HUGE! Russell Crow will do an excellent job as Jor-El. When he speaks he just commands your attention.

Now that you mention it...I agree!! Never was a fan of his but he does look like Jor-El from Earth One. I wonder who would get top billing...I don't think Cavill has enough star power to get top billing. Costner maybe?
