    I personally don't want a big super villian, for the next superman movie. I want lex to be this, omnipresent face of metropolis, yet, we don't encounter him per se. I want lois and clark to go after lex, the reporters. I want lex to do soemthign to shut them up and that's where superman saves the day so to speak, i also want a lot of natural disasters and rescues scattered around the movie. Imagine, not so much jfk, line of fire, but a good suspense movie, that alongside it has superman. Clark, lois and superman are the stars.

    I can’t lie I’ve considered him too. If he hadn’t been in Supergirl I think he’d definitely be an option. But like you said because of that I don’t think it’s likely.

    I gotta be honest. For some reason, I'm really feeling Adam Driver as Superman. The studio would never do it, but in a weird way it just works for me. Can't explain it.

    This is my all star , expensive , Superman cast for part 1.

    Superman: Nicholas Hoult
    Lois Lane : Anne Hathaway
    Lex Luthor: Leonardo DiCaprio
    Perry White:Tom Hanks
    Jimmy Olsen: John Boyega
    Morgan Edge: Catherine Zeta Jones
    Lena Luthor : Vanessa Kirby
    Maggie Sawyer: Taraji P. Henson
    Livewire: Kate Mckinnon
    Parasite: Jason Statham
    Mercy Graves: Maggie Q
    John Corben: Damien Lewis

    I'd cost a fortune to make based on the actors alone

    Going with an unknown might be the way to go. Like a real unknown. Christopher Reeve did mostly plays, guest-starred in a few TV shows and had a bit part in a movie before he was cast as Superman. Helen Slater did even less before Supergirl (she went to performing arts school and then did a TV movie.) The actor could be found in theatre or just be starting out.

    John David Washington is the choice for Superman. He's got an incredibly warm, good-hearted charisma to him that just feels perfect to me.

    If Nic Cage had gotten the role, it would have paved the way for Driver, but as it stands, a big no from me, i just don't see it and i don't see him fitting the version we probably all have...

    likewise with Driver, do not see it at all.


    i think of Reeve, a character, stage actor....unknown... maybe took himself too seriously and was type cast, but... let's be honest, if he hadn't done superman would he have made it?? I love the guy, but some actors translate better on stage, he's one of them (with the exception of superman). It's down to both persona's weren't 'real' people or at least, people you would find on tv - larger than life roles being the key word.

    Another few names I’ll throw out there if the movie is nowhere close to becoming a reality is Jacob Elordi & Luke Benward.

    Elordi is 22 6’4, would be more of a classic looking Supes. If the movie is 8-10 years away maybe he’s a choice.

    Benward is 24 6’2 been in mostly small parts in movies could be a decent option down the road.

    The toughest thing I find with casting this movie is we have no clue if/when it will be made.

    Bomer's 41 now...His chance to play him seems to have passed. (Since he was Brett Ratner's choice in his version before 'Superman Returns'.) Plus he's already in the DC Universe in Doom Patrol. But he does have a good look for Superman:

    Mena Massoud as Clark Kent/Superman. He's got the charm and an actually perfect look.

    Three words:
    Unknown
    Unknown
    Unknown

    For awhile now, the superhero leads we've been getting have been pretty well known. Get JJ to pilot this thing and put his Star Wars casting to good use again, finding someone who is either entirely fresh-faced (Ridley), recognizable from maybe one or two things but still pretty unknown (Boyega) or an indie actor on the rise who hasn't yet had their break-out moment (Isaac, Driver).

    I honestly feel like the last, closest thing to an unknown lead in one of these movies is like... Hemsworth?

    I'd say Ray Fisher, but lead is the important distinction here, and he's a nice kid, but we all know that **** ain't happening anymore. :o

    There's a guy in Coronation Street (long running UK soap for those of you elsewhere who haven't heard of it) called Sam Robertson. Many UK members would probably roll their eyes at this suggestion because he's a soap actor, but I've always thought he was a decent on the show and looks-wise he could definitely pass for Superman with a bit of bulking up. He's 6ft, 33yrs old, relatively unknown outside of the UK I would guess.

    Never roll your eyes at soap actors! Soaps are the boot camps of acting and PLENTY of now-beloved and/or respected actors did their time on soaps.

    This guy’s probably a bit older and a bit shorter than they’ll be looking for, but he’s got a great face for it imo, and it’s nice to see some new blood. :up:

    Here’s a pic with less facial hair:

    Nice jawline.
