    Make it a two-hander between Kent and Olsen. Maybe it'd be derivative of Shazam then, idk.

    Pacino will probably retire before they even announce a Superman director

    Soap actor and Tv movie actor Mark Grossman would be a name I would throw into the Hat for a rebooted Superman , though he's on the older end, in his early 30s I think .

    He very much reminds me of a fusion of Chris Reeve and a younger Tom Cruise in terms of his looks.

    Um....Michelle Monaghan is currently 43, and 11 years older than Armie Hammer. Basically about as old as Amy Adams (44 now). Not that I personally wouldn't be opposed to an older actress, but I don't think WB would consider for a second an actress over 40, unfortunately. The only thing that WB will be likely to do will be to cast an actress well under 40—late 20s to early 30s, especially if there's a remote chance that they might skew younger for Superman in the next movie.

    Morrison's take on Superman was under-valued, I think.

    I know I'm a broken record at this point, but I think his Action Comics (minus the Vyndktvx portion) would be a GREAT inspiration for a Supes reboot. It would feel so fresh compared to the versions of the origin we've gotten in the past.

    The beauty of it is in the little things, like how absolutely psyched Clark was when he got his first, craphole-in-the-wall apartment. It's those moments of endearing, joyful, everyman relatability that would help audiences connect with him again, imo.

    I know you would hate it, but the Hammer man would make a good Supes.

    He really wouldn't. He doesn't even make a good Armie Hammer.

    Surely we can find someone who doesn't film his son sucking on his toes and make foot fetish jokes. That's not a high bar to clear.

    Morrison took Superman's origin and truly updated it for the time period. It would indeed make a sound basis for a Superman movie reboot, I think.

    How about Homelander himself, Anthony Starr, as Lex Luthor?

    Hugh Laurie should finally get his chance to take a crack at Perry White. It's not too late.

    I'd put Hanks as the first alternate, but I don't know if I see him taking such a secondary role.

    They should go all out with the reboot.. go big or go home.

    Trouble is, MOS felt like that with their casting.. as an example, they had Morpheus, Maximus, Robin Hood..

    However, Perry White needs to be a 180 and I would use Steve Carrel. He can totally channel Laine Smith.
    Lois Lane/lana Lang I would love a huge Asian Star from China and Emmy Rossini’s for either or.
    Jimmy - a Norwegian actor, Cat Grant - Trace lysette - make her this social media influence and a cool, sassy character that people like... then after people are like, oh, trans... cool/no biggie.
    Lex Luther should be a fringe background character but a powerful actor.. cruise, law, Washington, Pitt.
