CAST THIS: Superman
Aw man, just when I was going to do a HULK casting column, they had to go and sign up Mark Ruffalo like one day after Norton peaced out. Marvel doesn’t waste any time do they?
Well, DC does, and we haven’t heard much of anything about the SUPERMAN reboot in quite sometime, so I decided it was time to change that. Jonathan Nolan is writing a script, and has been rumored to direct (though so has Chris Columbus, which proved false, so who knows), but now we really need a new Man of Steel as presumably Routh won’t be returning (though I suppose he could be). Who would be your ideal SUPERMAN?
It’s the role that most actors would only dream of, and only a few have played the part over the years in TV and film. Past incarnations of Superman reboots have been rumored to be really random, like, Nicolas Cage random, but I don’t think the studio would want to take any such gamble this time.
But producer Chris Nolan is the man who took the change of Heath Ledger playing the Joker, as he saw something there that no one else did, so I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if we get a pretty out there pick for Superman when things finally do start coming together.
Young? Old? Who knows? I highly doubt this will be an origin story, and I bet Nolan has something out of the ordinary planned for the plot. You all know “the look,” so who do you think should be his new face in the reboot, or should Routh be given one more shot with a new team behind him?
Last Week: MORIARTY
Last week we took a look at who should play Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis Moriarty in the HOLMES sequel, now that it seemed Brad Pitt wasn’t in the running anymore. Who did you pick?
1. Daniel Day-Lewis (13%) 2. Christoph Waltz (11%) 3. Hugh Laurie (9%)
Good show lads, I think this is a fine selection. Daniel Day-Lewis is clearly an excellent choice no matter the role, but I could see him being particularly effective here.
Christoph Waltz is another good choice, as he’s more than proven his villainous chops so far in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. As for Hugh Laurie? Everyone’s been begging for him to make a major jump to the big screen, and this could be a good time to do that.
OK, who should be Supes?
