Good cast dude.

Like I said on Hawk's article, I would have to see Hemsworth with black hair, but I think he would pull the role off. I'm still very much a Routh-advocate though hehe :)

I could see Bettany as Lex. Not my personal favorite (Colm Feore) but I reckon he'd still be a very good Luthor.

Haven't seen (or actually heard of) the Lois pick, but she looks the part.

Thanks for the 2 shout-outs with Jimmy and Perry! I think they're perfect for their respective roles. :)

I can't stand Statham as an actor, so no to him as Metallo, don't take it personally at all. If literally anyone cast him in a role I'd hate it, unless it's a completely silent one ;)

Jones would be great as Parasite.
THEHAWK - 11/1/2009, 8:36 PM
@NightAvengers. Not bad man, Bettany is a good choice. And thanks for the shout out.
TheUnknown - 11/1/2009, 11:04 PM
cool, but Jessica Lowndes might be too young to be Lois
KeepItReal - 11/2/2009, 12:33 AM
nice. thumbs up. Its weird seeing JOhn Schneider though as the dad. I forever remember seeing him as one of the Duke boys from the Dukes of Hazzard. haha.

LOVE Tommy Lee Jones! i dont care what role he has. ;)

and I love seeing Paul Bettany as the bad guy. cool.
brycied - 11/2/2009, 12:38 AM
can anyone tell me why my spiderman cast wont go in fan fic??

and i really like this cast!! although i still want routh
Shaman - 11/2/2009, 10:07 AM
Decent, but i prefer HAWK's ;)
THEHAWK - 11/2/2009, 7:35 PM
@NightAvengers4. Don't worry, I still like your cast! Not sure about Statham though... he doesn't fit.

I like your idea, minus Bizarro. Three villains is too much. Parasite and Metallo alone have had Supes on the ropes before. Bizzaro would be overkill. Save him for later.
Tenaciousbt - 11/3/2009, 8:23 AM
No offence to you Nightavenger4 but I hate every single cast selection. I have seen way better picks for all of these. Sorry. And again I am not hating on you, just the picks. I think there are way better picks out there.
MovieMisfit - 11/15/2009, 2:33 AM
Good job except for Hemsworth as Superman and the Kents from Smallville [good for Smallville...not for the big screen].
Batmanknight - 12/21/2009, 1:48 PM
Dude I just finished writing a story that is just like yours.It has Metallo and Parasite.

The only ones i dont like are Mr. and Mrs. Kent and Parasite. and not to keen on Superman either. Like the rest though.
Talontd - 12/21/2009, 2:22 PM
I'm soooooooooo sick of this Worthington bullsh!t....

There is NOTHING about WORTHINGTON that embodies SUPERMAN. . . . . . . . . . . . . .NOTHING!!!

Yes he was good (borderline great) in AVATAR.....so what!!!! I wish everyone would get off his nuts and stop casting him in EVERYTHING!
Ryden - 12/21/2009, 2:32 PM
still not digging worthington as supes ;(
AshleyWilliams - 12/21/2009, 2:43 PM
Thanks Guys!
Talontd-Ok,Thats your Opinion,What about the rest?
Technoman81 - 12/21/2009, 3:13 PM
I'm sorry, just my opinion, but this cast does not even come close to having the Superman feel movie world. I even think that this cast is not even close to want the characters look like. He is my cast for a reboot Superman movie.

The Cast of Superman, Man of Steel

Anthony LaPaglia as Perry White
Matthew Bomer as Clark Kent/Superman
Currie Graham as Lex Luthor
Evan Ellingson as Jimmy Olsen
Malin Akerman as Lana Lang
Jessica Biel as Lois Lane
Gerard Butler as John Corben/Metallo
Jonathan Frakes as Jor-el
Stephen Lang as General Hammon
Technoman81 - 12/21/2009, 3:15 PM
Oh, for the sequel, to Man of Steel

Superman: Man of Tomorrow

Anthony LaPaglia as Perry White
Matthew Bomer as Clark Kent/Superman
Currie Graham as Lex Luthor
Evan Ellingson as Jimmy Olsen
Malin Akerman as Lana Lang
Jessica Biel as Lois Lane
Hugo Weaving as Brianic
Stephen Lang as General Hammon

WTF @ NIGHT!!!

WORTHINGTON for CAPTAIN AMERICA not [frick]ing SUPERMAN lol!!

Luv your other picks though dude! ; D
ManOfIron - 12/21/2009, 4:15 PM
that Jesse Eisenberg guy bothers me cuz he doesn't have eye brows
InTylerWeTrust - 12/21/2009, 4:39 PM
Only one I don't like is Worthington as Supes. He was great in Avatar, but he is wrong for Superman on pretty much every level imaginable.
DDD - 12/21/2009, 5:50 PM
A 5'10" Auzzie midget up against a 6'4" Lex Luthor?
You gotta be kidding me!

Superman is 6'3-4". Look it up on his bio at DC.
Anyone shorter than 6'1 is just TOO short! Where's
the logic in the casting lately?
lc - 12/21/2009, 6:13 PM
LEEE pls shhhhhh theres a gd boy lmao xoxox
AshleyWilliams - 12/21/2009, 6:40 PM
Thanks Guys!
Obviously They can make people look taller! The last time i checked,Elijah Wood is not 3 feet Tall!

I'd Like to get some opinions on the others besides Superman!!!!!!!!!
InTylerWeTrust - 12/21/2009, 7:00 PM
You'd need 8 inch lifts or make sure Worthington and Bettany stand like 5 feet away from each other at all times in order to fix the height problem...
AshleyWilliams - 12/21/2009, 7:47 PM
Update with Routh!
Because I have seen the light!
Talontd - 12/21/2009, 9:01 PM
I HATE Routh, but at least now it makes some semblance of sense...
BLADE4040 - 12/21/2009, 11:32 PM
Routh is SUPERMAN we agree on that!!!

Parasite Im not so sure about that pick and I could care less about Jimmy although he's not a good pick in my opinion.

Thomas Jane and Tommy lee Jones great picks and I dont think your Lois pick could be any worse than RETURNS.
AshleyWilliams - 12/22/2009, 8:29 AM
We all have opinions!
BLADE4040-Routh IS Superman!Parasite would hardly never talk,so the performance is in the movements,We all know that Jones is good at that!Jesse is perfect for Jimmy!
I think Thomas Jane really fits my hired killer version of Metallo.

ROUTH IS SUPERMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AshleyWilliams - 12/22/2009, 8:29 AM
How do you guys like Bettany as Luthor?
Dmon - 12/22/2009, 12:08 PM
I like all your picks especially your Luther. The only one I dont like is Routh he is not Superman but Christopher Reeves as Superman. I think they should go with someone new. I have yet to see anything from him that shows he could play Superman from the comics.
AshleyWilliams - 12/22/2009, 2:56 PM
Thanks.
BulliedNerd-Please tell me your not suggesting Tom Welling? And you said Routh was wrong for the role.
Tom Welling is a Cardboard actor whose only decent movie was The Fog,Which Sucked big time.
Routh has showed that he was good at playing Superman,Welling hasn't.
Technoman81 - 12/22/2009, 8:06 PM
My argument is that the next Superman movie/reboot must have the characters written very similar to the show Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. In order for the movie to work that series was really close to the comics as you will get from the last five Superman movies. Smallville has a different tone compare to the comics, but some how it work extreme well with the character Tom Welling did. My opinion is that some write Clark the same way the was written in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Matthew Bomer would make that version work on the big screen.
AshleyWilliams - 12/23/2009, 8:45 AM
BulliedNerd-Ok,We all have opinions! :)

What about the rest?!?
