Now THAT is funny!
Anyway, a 180 lbs English actor to plays Supes???
I'm wondering if it will even matter? Has the character been pigeon holed and has he lost his appeal to general audiences? It kind of reminds me of The Hulk. Loved the last movie but it only did so much at the box office because, good or bad, audiences have a preconceived notion of the character. Superman is perceived as a dull, two dimensional boy scout of a character, again right or wrong that seems to be the perception. The Superman Returns rehash of a film didn't help anything either.
The smart thing is casting an unknown and keeping cost down. It's also smart to release it in December to avoid the summer competition.
