Since Batman, WW and Flash have their own threads, its time for a Superman one.

Until 100% official confirmation I'll keep the question mark in the title, but for now its looking more and more like Scott Porter has landed the role of Superman.

He's the same height as Dean Cain and from Omaha, Nebraska. He's 28 (older than Reeve and Routh when they began as Superman) and appears on the series "Friday Night Lights" as Jason Street and will appear in the upcoming "Speed Racer" film as young Racer X.

He can act and hes an extreme DC fan; which means he has a good understanding of these characters.

Scoop: Scott Porter Is JLA's Superman!
By Josh Tyler: 2007-11-17 02:19:08


Scoop: Scott Porter Is JLA's Superman! It looks like the dam is about to burst on the casting of Warner Bros. Justice League of America movie. It’s just unfortunate that it had to happen late at night on a weekend, when I’m full of Scotch and in no mood to talk about which Hollywood actor will be abusing his crotch with tights next.

Anyway, here’s the skinny. Tonight we got an email from a guy claiming to be in the know with what’s going on in the JLA camp. He asked to remain anonymous, but he says he knows at least part of who is playing who. Normally I’d just delete such an email out of hand, after all we’re all sick of fake JLA rumors by now, but some of what he said confirmed heretofore unknown production tidbits I’d already heard from others, and then about an hour after he sent the email to me, another site posted a story confirming at least part of his casting rumor… yet they appear to have gotten their info from a completely different source, since their cast list doesn’t contain the real gem of the bunch… Superman.

So here’s the deal. Our source says Warner Brothers is set to announce the completed JLA cast next week, and Scott Porter (that’s him to your right) has been hired to play Superman. If you’ve noticed Porter at all before now, it’s probably as a regular on the TV series Friday Night Lights. He also had a fairly significant part in Music & Lyrics, and he’s just finished filming on Speed Racer as the brother of Racer X, Rex Racer.

He’s 29, from Omaha Nebraska, and about as all-American looking as a guy can get. I guess that’s what you want in a Superman, isn’t it? Now can the guy act? Wait, this is JLA. Who cares. Can the guy convincingly carry the Statue of Liberty over his head? That’s all that matters.

In addition to Porter, our source says Common is now signed to play John Stewart/Green Lantern. Adam Brody has been added to the cast, probably as The Flash. Teresa Palmer is on board but not as Wonder Woman. Other sources suggest she’s playing the daughter of Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul, Talia Ghul. Last, Michael Gough may make an appearance as Alfred, after being kicked out of the part by Michael Caine in Chris Nolan’s Begins movie.

So that’s the latest, and we've been able to confirm a lot of it with several different methods. Maybe this time we have a JLA cast rumor which is reliable. Everyone seems to agree WB will make an official announcement next week, so we won’t have long to wait for the final, full, cast list. We still don’t know who’s landed major parts like Wonder Woman or The Martian Manhunter.

Discuss :super:

Quoted For Truth


but lets face it; you'd see the movie anyway

And according to Iris from BT, Tom Welling was NEVER part of the equation, which makes sense.

yeah
If I went to see FF2 and spider-man 3 I would go see anything
now I'll go see it and not ***** about it.
hows that?:woot:
 
Porter definitely has the All-American look. But I'm not sure yet if he screams Superman.

The pics look pretty good, the hair is bugging me though. It's probably why I can't see "the look" too much.

Has potential. Definitely better than Welling. I'm open to it.
 
I think he'll resemble George Reeves in a modernized suit in the end.

But I think hes a worthy 6th Superman to carry the legacy on. He has the heart.
 
I think with dark hair, and the spit curl he'll make a more convincing Superman.
 
Aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh. At this point I'd take Steven Seagal . . . just announce something official already.

Dudes, what is going on? I posted this news hours before anybody else did, I am not hearing that Porter is Superman. I might be wrong but we heard that he was up for The Flash and that Adam Bordy beat him.

Edit: Just kidding about the Steven Seagal bit. I wouldn't really.
 
He should have an all-kryptonian look. Makes no sense in him crashing in America and coincidently looking like an american.

So cast that indy fella :D

They can't bring Reeve back from the dead, so I'm pretty indifferent to who they cast. As long as he plays a good Superman, my favourite hero <3
 
Wasnt there a site that confirmed his name is on the cast list along with Brody? I saw it mentioned in the JL casting updates thread.
 
Better than Welling, for sure. :up:

What I don't get any credit for pointing out the article?:oldrazz::cwink:

That right there makes me smile a little that Porter is NOT Welling! :hyper:
 
Better than Welling, but unless the WB proves he's playing Supes in JL, I'll see this as a rumor for now.
 
Credits yours. *high five*

Yeah, I put the question mark in to stress its a rumor and unconfirmed so far, its just a rumor picking up speed, so its worth discussing.
 
I also see the young George Reeves resemblance.

<3

Spot on, Kal-el is an alien, and only an adopted American, plus is supposedly of noble birth, this guy actually looks like he was born on a farm amongst the pigs. . . Porter looks like no incarnation of superman I've ever seen, and yeah his hair sucks, he would need a wig to hide his limp, bland locks, maybe the official vinyl superman returns wig will do the job. . .
 
I woldn't mind him. I think if he bulks up a little, he will be awesome.
 
Scott Porter is Superman yet this is still on his MySpace page:

I'm not believing any of these rumors until I see official confirmation.
 
Give him a nice short hair cut with the black and curl,it's Superman.
 
I think comic fans (myself included) are sometimes too eager to accept whatever poor casting choices are thrown at them. . . If people really think Porter would make a good superman, lets see some manips or comic pics where he actually resembles the man of steel?. . .
