If WB really wants a good Superman movie, then bring back Donner to over see.  Yes he is old, but he had respect for the story.  I think bring Nolan into do the Superman movie might be making another mistake like they did with Singer.  Don't get me wrong, I think Nolan would do a good job, but to this day Donner take on Superman is the best DC movie yet.

Because Violator, Cap was a young recruit during WWII. Most of those soldiers were between 18 and 25. Everyone would listen to Cap based on the fact that he is a  legendary war hero and a noted strategic genius in the Marvel U.  Why would they have tested the super soldier syrum on someone who was far past their physical prime already?

I like Michael Cassidy (who I have thought would make a great Superman since back when he was on the OC) and Scott Porter. I think both of them tremendously bulked up would do the character a lot of justice.

I like Jensen Ackles, and am glad to see confirmation that he was in talks, but I'd really rather see Jared Padalecki up for the part. He's taller, more solidly in the age range they're looking at, and I think has the personality more suited to play Cap.

Also, I think $300k is lowballing a bit. I realize they're looking for an unkown, but they're also asking him to shoulder a huge responsibility playing the lead in a major action picture, leading to an even greater unprecedented team superhero action picture. They gotta give him some points off the top or something to sweeten the deal. That's a lot of pressure with little reward. Unless maybe they're offering the $300k for the 1st movie, with bonuses built in if the movie does over $100M, and with built-in raises for future movies...

I gotta disagree with IM turning RDJ into a top level A star. Maybe he wasn't making blockbusters like a Will Smith or Tom Cruise. But I don't think its a stretch to say he was highly looked upon and talked about as an actor anyways. Guess its a matter of perspective and semantics.

I am also weary of the choice for pretty boys playing a well established character. But if any of them can do the character justice, go for it.

 

And like CaptAmerica04, I am kinda done with Supes as far as movie goes. I will enjoy the animated stuff and maybe even start picking up some books. But otherwise, the reboots, rewrites, rumors and blah blah blah has ruined my interest

Srry but Jared Padalecki is no Cap.  My opion of course.  I Like jensen Ackles betterin the role, but alas that is not happening either.  That Scott kid from Friday night Lights is dead on if you ask me.

Goyer writing Superman.  Braniac in the script wow.  As long as Lex is played more like the real Lex and not some bargin basement crimnal I live with it

Called it on the Goyer bit! No but I figured with Nolan "Godfathering:" it that he'd mention Goyer as a candidate to be involved in some way.  I hope his writing partner is Jeph Loeb, because give him credit besides FranK Miller who else has as much respect in writing Batman and Superman and both?

I couldn't see Jensen Ackles as Cap', it's just something about his voice for me. Daniel Cudmore (Colossus from XMen 3: The Last Stand) maybe? Or maybe for Supes? I could forgive him for being in Twilight.

Here's a link to prove  Daniel Cudmore LOOKS like a perfect fit for Superman, keep in mind he also tried out for Superman Returns.

My God...if there is anyone who should be kept as far away from Superman or Batman as humanly possible it's Jeph Loeb and Frank Miller. Between them they have both sealed any doubt that they have gone completely off the deep end. Between All Star Batman and Robin and......well...pretty much everything Jeph Loeb has done in the past 5 years, I submit they shouldn't even be allowed around comics.

If you want someone with a solid idea of who Superman is, hire Grant Morrison on as a consultant. All Star Superman was not only the definitive Superman story to me, but it was just an incredible piece of writing in general. I think the only other person who even comes close to Morrison in their understanding of Batman or Superman is Paul Dini.

Superman buzz is always good anyway.  It can only go up after last movie. 

A cheap Cap America casting seems like a good idea.  I just hope the movie is not liberal and keeps to basics.
