I agree 100% with Tashiro. We all know where Superman is from, what's his story, bla bla blah. I want an older Superman. I want my Superman to be tough, square-jawed and yet handsome, and Jon Hamm fits the profile, more like a "George Reeves"-style hero... As long as its not "emo", or "young and upcoming", not Brandon Routh, not even Tom Welling. Thank god it ain't Channing Tatum, who I HATE. And Mad Men is just amazing.

I'm tired of all this "young young young" crap. They already f*cked-up Spiderman good and proper both in the books and on film. Sure, Hamm is older, but nothing you can't fix with a tiny bit of makeup... and besides, who CARES. Superman, to me - in the COMICS - was never portrayed as a guy in his 20's, but rather as a MAN. Remember them? It's like there's no gap between "young, hip kids" and "old fart" anymore. My, I'm becoming a jaded, cynical bastard. Kids don't know nuthin.

Anyways, Tashiro? I'm with you on this one.

Stan the man was in X-men 1.He was on the beach buying a hot dog when Senator Kelly washed up to shore. I believe he was also in X-men 3 with Chris Claremont.
Stan's deal is that he cameos in his creations only. So Elektra. No. Ghost Rider. No. X-men, Spidey, Thor, Hulk - yes. Cap is not his creation but he brought him back to the Silver Age. Tough call. If Chris Claremont can cameo X-men and Frank Miller can cameo Daredevil, then he could cameo Cap.

Here's somebody's compilation video of Stan's Marvel cameos ending with The Incredible Hulk:

Joe Manganiello looks a little to rugged for supes, and then again why not.  Hamm would be good as Lex Luther.  Either way I'll be there to see what they do to save this franchise.

Is it possible Hamm is being considered as Lex Luthor? That would be far more plausible in my opinion, and it would just be damn fine casting.

 

Although, I have to say, I was always holding out that Hamm might land the role of Captain Marvel in the Shazam! movie.

Here's my reasoning as to why Superman needs to be played with a slightly younger actor than Hamm.  The main thing is that from what little Nolan has talked about Batman 3 and his deal with Superman, he talks about how his Batman wouldn't have existed in a world where there were already superheroes.  If we go in that line of thinking and then have a guy like John Hamm playing Supes, I'd have to ask "So where the hell has this guy been for the last 15 years?  He's had these powers to change/help the world and he waited until he was in his 40s to start helping the Earth? FTW?!"

I'd love to Routh back in the role, but as someone stated before it may confuse the general audience and they'll think this is a sequel to the other Superman films.  If it is indeed a true reboot, than Routh just won't work...as much as I may like the guy.  Same goes for Welling.  I love Smallville and it would be cool to finally see him as Superman on the big screen.  I just think people will be confused and think this is Smallville: The Movie or something.

Of the actors who have been mentioned and rumored, I still have to go with the dude from True Blood.  He's young, but not too young.  He looks like he's taken a few years post-college to travel the world as well as learn about all his power from the Fortress, etc.

I have very little confidence that the Superman movie will get made before the next round of legal limbo.  Otherwise, I think we would have heard a lot more rumors about the movie by now.  Just seems to me like they are dragging their feet.  Hope they don't do a rush job just to secure the rights.  Superman needs a grade-A treatment because we really haven't had one since the original movie with Christopher Reeve.  That's just a shame...
