FAN CAST: Superman (Reboot)
Here are my choices for who should star in a reboot of the Superman franchise. No origins (again!), no kid - just the Superman movie that we all want to see!
Sam Worthington as Clark Kent/Superman
Though this will probably be an extremely unpopular and maybe even controversial choice, after seeing Avatar I think that Worthington is perfect for the role. Yes, I've spent months saying that I dont think he's right for Captain America (and I stick by that) but if could just perfect his American accent just a little more then I think he'd make a great Superman and Clark Kent! I think that unlike Cap, he has the right qualities as an actor for these roles and as someone who isnt a fan of the Routh or Welling suggestions (or any of the others all that much either) I'm sticking with this pick! :)
Rachel McAdams as Lois Lane
Im a big fan of McAdams' and I thinks she has all the right qualities as an actress for this part.
Amy Adams as Lana Lang
If they included Lana in the movie then I dont think it would need to be a huge part but if they do, then I think Adams is a good fit for the role.
Ray Wise as Perry White
I really enjoyed his performance in the brilliant but short lived TV show Reaper and I think he'd make a great Perry.
Jamie Bell as Jimmy Olsen
He's an excellent actor and just perfectly suited to this role in my opinion.
Elisha Cuthbert as Cat Grant
I think it would be a good idea to expand the Daily Planet cast seen in the movie and Cat Grant could be an interesting addition. Cuthbert is a great actress and I think she'd be suited to this type of role.
Yvonne Strahovski as Supergirl
Her role in the TV show Chuck has shown that she knows how to act and kick ass at the same time whilst still being incredibly hot. For those reasons and the fact that she looks the part, I think she'd make a great Supergirl.
Now I know there are a lot of differing opinions about who the villain should be in the next Superman movie so here are my choices for some of Superman's greatest villains - any of which, I'd be happy to see in a movie!
Ralph Fiennes as Lex Luthor
The guy is great at playing a villain and however big or small his role in the movie would be I can think of no one better at portraying a truly menacing and evil version of the character.
Johnny Depp as General Zod
I know this may seem like an odd choice but I think that Depp could bring a lot to this role. Ok, he may not have the same commanding presence as Terrence Stamp but he's a quality actor and I have no problem imagining him making the role his own in an amazingly unique way.
Arnold Vosloo as Brainiac
Though Braniac would most likely be a mixture of CGI and make-up, I think that Vosloo is a perfect fit for the part both looks and voice wise. He's also a great actor (as seen in 24 and Blood Diamond)
Michael Clarke Duncan as Darkseid
Though this character would probably require a fair bit of CGI to look as large and menacing as in the comic books, I cant think of anyone better to cointribute their likeness and voice to the character.
CGI as Doomsday
I think that Smallville showed us that a non-CGI Doomsday looks awful. Admittedly a movie with a much larger budget could do a better job but in my opinion, CGI is the only thing that could do the character justice.
