    if you think Charlie Chaplin would have made a good Jimmy Olsen cast if for 90 years ago, it's all for fun.

    Gregory Peck hands down as Clark/Superman.

    Hmm...I'd have to go with Peck for Bruce Wayne/Batman and somebody like Cary Grant for Superman.

    An older Greg Peck would have been perfect as a "Dark Knight Retrurns" Bats. I can almost see Alex Ross' painting him as such!

    Exactly!


    Hugh Jackman pre-Wolverine would have been excellent as well.

    Well I hope so considering Ross' version of Bats from Kingdom Come was based on Mr. Peck.

    Um has no one seen him in To Kill a Mockingbird? Peck is not only the spitting image of Clark but also is still remember in that roll as being the perfect embodyment of everything that is good and wholesom and of good intent, and THAT is exactly what Superman is.

    Man, that's an awesome movie.

    I think Campbell could make a good Jor-El now.

    While it is true that he embodies all the ideals in that film, after watching any of his other films. I definitely see the suave, darkness needed for Bruce Wayne.

    Well, 3 or 4 years ago, we could've gone painlessly with most of the "Smallville" cast. Minus the awful ones Kristin Kreuk and Sam Jones III, and obviously the non-existing characters Chloe and Lionel. I always think how great would Erica Durance be, had her not been cast in SINO.
    Though Tom Welling's "acting" from 4 years ago could've been a huge problem, at least his Abercrombie & Fitch days wouldn't come with any baggage of native-american caves and kryptonite in every corner.
    10 years ago: Patrick Warburton as Superman. Courteney Cox, the perfect Lois Lane. And what about Tom Hanks as Lex Luthor?
    15 years ago. Daniel Day-Lewis as Lex Luthor and Gerard Christopher as Superman. Although he would bring a baggage of some sort, generating a flame war between Gerardgites and the fans who would want an unknown... :p
    This is fun. But right now is definately the perfect time to make a Superman movie. Brandon Routh, Kevin Spacey and (hopefully) Evangeline Lilly will rock!

    25 years ago i would have still gone with Christopher Reeve, but Lex Luthor would have been either Anthony Hopkins, or Al Pacino or Robert DeNiro with Sharon Stone for Lois

    25 years ago, i would still go with Gene Hackman for Luthor. I hate Lex from STM, but that's just the way he was written.
    In S:2, without Otis and Miss Teschmacher, he is a MUCH enjoyable character, and Hackman plays it at perfection. His scenes at the White House and in the Daily Planet are priceless.
    Great choices for Lex though, Superman20. I would add Andy Garcia to the list. Somewhere in time, he could've been Lex. Even now, if we didn't already have Kevin Spacey.

    Hmm gotta say Kyle Mchlachlan and Paul gross.

    As for past Lex's... Telly Savalas hands down is the greatest Lex that never was. The guy OOZED sleaze.
