    I find him so unlikeable that might work.

    I don't think he would have done it, or filmmakers wanted him to do it, when he was that much closer to being a big star, for someone kind of like Schneider at that time probably Dennis Quaid.

    The synopsis above does sound rather intriguing for a Superman story.
    However, reading the mess it morphed into during the Tim Burton/NIc Cage phase, not sure I would want to see this if it was made with Bay or Burton.
    I sense the central idea would be good but somehow stray from the ultimate goal.

    Michael Clarke Duncan would have been an awesome Bane. Wow that’s a great call.

    For a 90s Knightfall adaptation, I’d go with him or D’Onofrio. Or Schwarzenegger, if we’re going stunt casting.

    True enough; I agree that I think it was Burton’s involvement that derailed the project.

    Kevin Smith delivered a solid script that could have launched a franchise. And Nicolas Cage may have actually been inspired casting, the likes we hadn’t seen since Michael Keaton in 89’s Batman. But Burton didn’t really seem interested in Superman. He wanted to tell the story of an alien outsider dressed up as a Superman flick. And it could have worked still, but it morphed into something a bit too removed from Smith’s original script for my liking.

    With the original treatment, I think Michael Bay could bring his Armageddon energy into revitalizing Superman. Make the Man of Steel cool— something WB still can’t figure out. Spectacular action. Charming movie stars and beautiful female leads. And comedic supporting characters. Smith’s script had all the trappings of a classic Michael Bay picture from the 90s.

    I think Clarke would have been great.

    Beyond his Physical Presence, he had that great voice and was a great actor.
    He could have been a truly formidable, and imposing, adversary to Keaton's Batman.

    D'Onofrio also would have been amazing as well.

    Love Sophie Marceau; her or Demi Moore would be perfect for Talia. Obviously Marceau has the more the international flare.

    And though I like Lee, I can’t shake Sean Connery as Ra’s al Ghul. Mashup Ducard & Ra’s like in Begins.

    Connery would have been a great Ra's .
    The idea of him being a mentor/ teacher to Keaton's Bruce Wayne would have been awesome. :word:
