A British DC Universe: Superman

A British DC Universe: Superman

Metropolis, Smallville and The Man Of Steel himself... with a somewhat British twist

Following on from my recent Britsh Batman cast, which proved to be even more successful than I could have hoped, I decided to continue on my ardous quest to scoure the British Isles for the most awesome actors for them to portay superheroes from the DC universe. This, my British Superman fan cast, will become part 2, in my 6 part mini series consisting of:
1. Batman
2. Superman
3. The Flash
4. Green Lantern
5. Wonder Woman
6. Aqua Man

After the above are all completed and posted, I shall attempt to combine them in something I like to call the BJ!!!.....L :P Yes, The "British Justice League", not the Blow Job Lickers for all you dirty minded bastards :P This will consist of all the headline acts from my other individual British fan-casts, along with a few extra heroes and villains to get the story going.

Anywho, enjoy!

Not Bad. I like Gerard Butler for Zod. With Statham as Metallo, Supes would def need to learn some kind of martial arts since he would prob be powered down a bit. I would have to warm up to Watson as Supergirl tho.

Pretty good stuff here, man!! I love your choices for Jor-El, Lara-El, and Mr. Mxyzptlk. I personally prefer Christopher Eccleston for a british Brainiac.

even though I hated your Batman one, this one was pretty good.

Nice Choice MrBlueSky! I'd Completely forgotten about Eccleston!

I've always liked the idea of Michael Sheen (torn:legacy, frost/nixon and underworld) as general zod. True not big muscle wise but could add a lot of acting clout very much like terance stamp did.

@ScarletSpeedster0, A valid and excellent point my amigo :) however, in my opinion I believe that Zod has been portrayed as the "scheming brainiac" kind of villain too many times, and I'd like him to be portrayed as a more brawny villain, one that can physically be shown as a threat to Superman, as well as mentally. However, if he were to be played as the smarter kind of villain, then Michael Sheen would definitely be the way to go :)

Role of Zod doesn't suit Butler.The best role for him is role of doomsday,because if you remember all his role for example Gamer,300 and especially law abiding citizen you will understand that there is none else who can play role of Doomsday like Gerard Butler.Everything what he needs is to practise a bit and design of CGI.

I would love this cast if it was for the real film!
