Man hasn’t it been a big week for the Man of Steel…here’s a recap of the latest casting news.
Just yesterday it was announced that Christopher Meloni has been cast in an unknown role.
According to Worst Previews, NY Mag caught up the man himself and he annouced that the role is not Lex Luthor, after much speculation. Instead it will be a general, of some sort. So not only will the former Dectective Stabler not be playing Lex Luthor but it also rules out Perry White too.
The annoucement of Chris Meloni’s involvement followed hot on the heels of the announcement that Julia Ormond has joined the cast playing Lara, Superman’s Kryptionian mother, wife to Jor-El.
Now technically I haven’t seen anywhere online where it’s stated that it’s a lock however my trusted source of IMDb.com has Ms Ormond in the … Read More »

Today THR reports that Russell Crowe is in negotiations to play Jor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian father, in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
If the negotiation is successful then Mr Crowe will be stepping into a role made famous by Marlon Brano in the original 1978 version of Superman. Although Mr Brando’s screen time in the film only ended up being about 16 minutes, let’s hope that the role is expanded a little more in this version.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
Whether you like the man or not, Russell Crowe is a very talented actor and is capable of playing any role that he puts his mind to. Speaking of which, if you need proof of the man’s talent then go … Read More »
Henry Cavill will be facing off against Michael Shannon in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel!
Mr Shannon, best known for his Oscar nominated role in Revolutionary Road and most recently as his turn as Agent Nelson Van Alden in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, will take on the villainous role of General Zod!
Director Zack Snyder had this to say about the casting decision;
“Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role”
This is great casting and I think that Mr Shannon will play a great General Zod and it’s also a relief to hear that this Superman reboot will have an actual villain other than … Read More »
It’s official! Amy Adams is Lois Lane!
Amy Adams has been cast as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel. Ms Adams will be joining Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, and Diane Lane in the new reboot scheduled to be released next year.
It’s been a stellar year for Ms Adams who joins the cast hot off her Oscar nominated performance as Charlene Fleming in The Fighter. Ms Adams has the unique ability to embody all of her characters and only seems to go from strength to strength.
I first noticed Amy Adams in Catch Me If You Can as Brenda Strong, the innocent and naive nurse who falls for the charms of con man Frank Abagnale Jr (Leonardo DiCaprio). I thought she was just brilliant and made me believe her character in every scene that she’s in. Now cut forward to The Fighter…could … Read More »
