Oh... cool!! I actually like that idea. I doubt he wins the Oscar (Chiwetel has that in the bag, I believe) but certainly he's looking at a nomination. Either way, Luther would be in markedly good hands.

Matthew McConaughey, is not somebody I thought of initially, but that could definitely work. I don't want to see an old man play it, I don't care how talented he is. My ideal choice would be Dicaprio, but he is so particular about what he does, I doubt he would do it. That age though, I think would work better.

Could it be that Damon has already landed the role of Lex Luthor and everybody's being fed a bunch of follow-the-yellow-brick-road?!

I didn't see Hammer's character in TSN as a bad guy, how simplistic to describe him as such.

I don't understand this comment, like at all.

EDIT: No scratch the coy b.s. I do know what you mean. Goyer is writing the movie so why do you give a crap about Damon's political views one way or the other. Do I avoid Bruce Willis movies because he isn't a liberal? No I do not, I only avoid them if they look like crap.

It all depends on what Goyer and Snyder have up their sleeves. I'll except an older actor but I'll be disappointed for a little while.

Hey remember when people said that Wes Bentley was going to be cast as Batman because he was in Interstellar? And remember when they cast a guy who has never been in a Nolan movie to play Batman? Can we please stop pretending that the MM is more likely just because he is in a Nolan movie already? It's getting annoying.

Yeah. That's what you get when you cast Wahlberg as someone smart.

What would Interstellar have to do with this? Nolan isn't even involved here. He's being an executive producer credit purely based on his involvement with Man of Steel. His casting choices have nothing to do with this project.

I have been saying the same thing forever. There is no proof that Nolan is working on SvB, none what-so-ever.

You're right. The "executive producer" credit is typically given as an honorary title. It's not as if he has anything to do with budgeting, which is the primary responsibility of a producer. He's not involved, WB is just milking the name and spinning it as a "thank you."
