DOOM PATROL Actor Brendan Fraser Recalls Auditioning To Play SUPERMAN In The 2000s

Brendan Fraser can currently be seen as Robotman on DC Universe's Doom Patrol series, but the actor actually auditioned to play a far more well-known DC Comics character back at the height of his career...

Did you know Brendan Fraser auditioned to play Superman back in the day?

During a new interview with SyFy, the Doom Patrol actor was asked if there was any truth to the rumor that he was in line to play Reed Richards in the first Fantastic Four movie, and while he denies that, he does mention that he auditioned to play The Man of Steel for Brett Ratner back when Superman: Flyby was still on Warner Bros.' slate.


"No. I auditioned for Superman [the film that would end up as Bryan Singer's Superman Returns]. I even wore the suit. It was cool, it was pretty cool. I mean, I didn't get the job. It went away. Brett Ratner was a bit 'woo hoo' in those days, and that's well documented. And that was a script J.J. Abrams wrote but it never got made. And it was freaking Shakespeare in space. It was so cool. It was worlds colliding and, it was really, really cool. But you know, I hear he's done well since then!"

We have no idea how close Fraser actually came to landing the role, but if he was asked to don the costume then one would assume the studio saw him as a pretty strong contender.
