Zack Snyder makes some comments about Superman and Amanda Seyfried mentions an audition

03.21.2011

We got a "scoop" (notice the sarcastic quotes) from Jake Hamilton of Jake's Takes that you might want to examine.

During a press junket for SUCKER PUNCH, Hamilton sits down with director Snyder to talk SUPERMAN. Of course like most curious movie fans, Hamilton wonders if there is something new that Snyder could tell him. The director mentions that there will be a character in the film that is also called Superman.

In an email to us, Hamilton says, "I got a small little piece of info from Zack Snyder about Superman which, I think, may point to the fact that we may see Bizzaro in the flick." But why would Snyder introduce Bizarro right off the bat? Obviously Snyder is just joking. He says exactly this, "There could be a character in the movie that other people might refer to as Superman. So that's something. Snyder then goes on to say it's not exactly an exclusive. Derp. Snyder's scoop was basically, "Yes, Superman's going to be in the movie. Isn't that awesome?" Smart ass. Give me something. Anything.

But it made me wonder, would it be a good idea to ever introduce the Bizarro storyline to the big screen?

In real news, Amanda Seyfried told Bleeding Cool that she auditioned for a part in Superman and also wanted a role in SUCKER PUNCH, "I auditioned for a role in the new Superman and didn’t get it, and I really wanted Emily Browning’s role in Sucker Punch. I’d originally got that role and everything was in gear, but then I got the call from Big Love saying “we need you this season, you can’t do it. The director, Zack Snyder, fought for me, and I even called the head of HBO because I thought I wasn’t being used in Big Love in a way that was worth me losing out on Sucker Punch. At the time it didn’t seem like there was anything better. Big Love wouldn’t let me go so I cried a lot."

Watch the interview below if you'd like. To skip right to it, the Snyder stuff starts at 2:57.

Extra Tidbit: Anytime I hear the word "bizarro", I also think about SEALAB 2021.

Oh boy, Superman...that's one movie we have had enough of. All of the damn Superman movies are more or less the same movie. Give it a rest Hollywood.

But, I guess I'd rather see Bizarro than Zod and the way over used Luthor again.

It's not Bizarro, I bet it's Lex Luthor in disguise!

Huh?????

Having just watched the entire final season of Big Love, I find this shocking. She was only in the final episode, for maybe 2 minutes. Surely that only took 1 day of shooting max. You mean HBO & Snyder couldn't work something out for one day of shooting? I would think that if Snyder really wanted Seyfried, they would have worked something out. Maybe in actuality he knew that she would have sucked in sucker punch. On the flip side, I am happy she won't be in Superman. I have nothing

I have nothing really against her, I just can't see her playing any sort of major role in that film. She always seems like she is just a bit whiny in almost everything she does.

Snyder was obviously joking, but I did like some of the other questions that got asked and such. Too bad about Seyfried.

Bizarro played with depth

If you are gonna cast and direct Bizarro, you can't look at Nuclear Man from 'Superman: Quest for Peace'. You have to look at Billy Bob Thorton in 'Sling Blade', Leonardo DiCaprio in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?', Robert DeNiro in Kenneth Branaugh's 'Frankenstein', and take a good look at 'Charly'(sic) aka 'Flowers for Algernon'.

Only Christopher Reeve as Bizarro...

Only Christopher Reeve playing the 3 simultaneous identities of Kal-El (Fish out of Water, Stranger in a strange land)/ the deeply Morality-Driven Clark/ and Celebrity (Bigger than Life) Superman could make an audience empathize for Bizzaro's tragic arc from perfect identical clone to warped, deluded, force of destruction. In fact the Salkynds (sp) really dropped the ball by not having one of the best scenes in the Christopher Reeve Era 'Superman' tetrology (Clark vs. Evil Superman) not be one

In fact the Salkynds (sp) really dropped the ball by not having one of the best scenes in the Christopher Reeve Era 'Superman' tetrology (Clark vs. Evil Superman) not be one of the scenes depicting Bizarro's violent decline. Only someone wirh David Lynch (Elephant Man) can properly depict the strangeness and empathy out of a Bizarro film, which would require Michael Bay scale collateral Damage.

A little more decorum..

..on Seyfried's part might be in order. I seriously doubt her comment was solely intended as a jab at Browning, but it does kinda come off that way.

Zack Snyder to Emily Browning: "Don't worry baby. You'll always be my silver medal."

That's too bad about Seyfried, that would have made Sucker Punch all the more sexier. Not that Browning isn't a sexy little muffin herself, but Seyfried would have been worth the movie alone. Maybe someone else can give Seyfried a movie where she runs around in a Sailor fuku with a sword slicing up samurai with miniguns. One can dream.

I would love to see Bizarro

This franchise needs something fresh. Look at wwhat Nolan did with Batman. Batman Begins veered away from the more mainstream villains in favor of AlGhul, Mr. Zsasz, and Scarecrow who cater more to the comic book fanbase. Just like we got Joker and two-face for TDK, I'd be happy if they saved Lex Luthor for the inevitable sequel and covered fresh ground. Bizarro s Legit!

Meh

I love Zack, I think he's a great, nice guy. But I hate his films. This is the first time a Chris Nolan script is going to turn into a terrible movie.
I wish Zack would just start making video games and stick with commercial directing...
Sucker Punch was the worst film I've seen in years :( not surprised, only went to a screening because I got free tickets and we left after an hour...
Sorry Zack, love ya buddy.

I agree about Snyder, but one correction: This is NOT a Chris Nolan script. It's a David Goyer script.

There's no way Snyder introduces Bizarro in the first movie.

It's probably JUST Superman.
