    As far as I've read, a pretty small time actor named Michael Doneger. He's just someone I saw in a movie tonight, basically thought, "he looks kinda Supermanny" and posted it, after looking for actresses in his age brackett.

    I would rather Fraser be in something inspired by Max Fleischer's Superman, George Reeves, and Kirk Alyn.

    I think Superman Lives works better with better with someone who doesn't seem the type.

    I mean Superman Lives is completely insane so just go all the way.

    I don't know what I would do if I was allowed to see a golden age throwback that's very stylized in presentation. Like Sky Captain, but you know, better.

    I know I'm probably in the minority there though.

    I wish Mathew Vaughn wanted to do that and not his Krypton Trilogy pitch.

    In terms of casting Superman/Clark Kent in the 90s, the actors I would have looked at would be

    Paul Gross (Due South)
    Billy Campbell (The Rocketeer)
    Campbell Scott ( Big Night)
    Dylan Neal ( Tv actor)


    For Lois Lane in the 90s I would have looked at

    Sandra Bullock(Speed)
    Courtney Cox ( Friends)
    Parker Posey ( Waiting for Guffman)
    Julianna Margulies (ER)
    Daphne Zuniga ( Melrose Place)

    Been a fan of hers for awhile, but seeing her in Mank really sealed the deal...

    Tuppence Middleton - Lois Lane

    I still don’t believe Tuppence Middleton is a real name and not something made up to make fun of British people.

    I mentioned him before, definitely one of my favorite choices for Superman.

    I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about it, but I really don’t see Hanks taking a role with that little meat to it. If he loses his CBM virginity, it’ll be on something with a little more heft than Perry White.

    I have him cast as Pa Kent but he has a bigger role in the film than most of the other films I'd say. Screenshot_2020-10-14-19-12-38-09.png
    In this scene Pa and Clark confront the school bullies parents and Clark watches the way Pa interacts with people during confrontation. My story features a lot of time spent with his folks and us getting to see why he becomes Superman.

    I'm very sad because I'm thinking about how perfect Viggo Mortensen would be as Jonathan Kent and how he would never do it.

    I would rather Superman come back with his own DCEU mini series rather than a full on reboot...continue the mini series on HBO Max with Cavill still playing Supes...it only makes sense because of Snyder Cut

    I like Cavill and wish he’d had a better creative team at the helm during his tenure, but I think his time to let him go. There’s just too much baggage for his version of the character to ever really flourish.

    Watched Yes God Yes today and Wolfgang Novogratz had that charmingly innocent farmboy vibe. He also happens to be the spitting image of Christopher Reeve.

    I like Novogratz, he's among my top choices for the role. It helps that Superman is sort of a dream role for him and he's being mentored by Hugh Jackman. I don't think he looks anything like Reeve, he reminds me of Doc Shaner Superman art.

    Other than Henry Cavill & David Corenswet most of the choices in this thread for Superman are awful.

    Needs some muscle added obviously but Ethan Peck has something about him that I think could work for Kal El

    Novogratz looks better-suited to Conner or teenage Jon Kent to me. Peck is Spock and now will always be Spock to me, lol. I doubt I'll see an option more appealing than Corenswet in here anytime soon, but ya never know.

    Not seeing Superman but if you need an actor to play Ted Bundy, this guy has the perfect look!

    He's probably a little too old for it now, but I think William Shatner would have made a good Perry White.
