More Superman rumors

01.28.2004

You know that saying, don't shoot the messenger? Well in this instance, don't even talk to me. More rumors are starting to surface about casting for the next SUPERMAN movie and if you thought the one about Ashton Kutcher was funny, read on. Beyonce Knowles is the front runner for the role of Lois Lane and Johnny Depp is being highly considered for super-villain Lex Luthor. What does all this mean? It means the makers of this doomed production are trying anything in their power to build up some hype for a franchise that has been stuck in the mud since producer Jon Peters started opening his mouth. These "sources" I've been reading about are saying these are the actors the studio wants. Well, I want Ashley Judd to stop by at my birthday party in leather chaps and chew tobacco with me. Does that mean I should shine up the spittoon and ask the wife to go shopping? No. The question here is not whether Depp can pull off playing Luthor (the guy could play Jimmy Olsen, Lana Lang, and a piece of Kryptonite and still steal every f*cking scene in this movie), or if Beyonce will sing all of her lines into the camera with back-up dancers. The question is, why would the studio screw around with such iconic characters? And, why would Depp want to do this?

The 1978 Superman should still be considered one of, if not, the greatest comic book movies ever made. They too found some big names in Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando but to their defense, both actors were established in their art. While Depp might fit into this category, Kutcher and Knowles are just MTV eye candy thrown in to try and score popularity points. If these rumors have any sort of truth to them, and McG is still directing, get ready for a full blown, epic fan-boy revolt.
