    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.

    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.

    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.



    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, 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.

    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 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?. . .
