Superman: Man of Steel film (2012) casting and storyline

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS ALL RUMOR/SPECULATION. NO FACTUAL INFO UNTIL THE MOVIE STARTS ROLLING FILM. ALL POSTED INFORMATION IS TO FEED THE CESSPOOL, PROGRAM THE GHOST IN THE SHELL.

What we know:

  • 99.99% odds that Chris Nolan’s brother Jonathan will direct it. I think because J will have a better sense of how to depict an American icon. New frontrunners to direct, including Darren Aronofsky, Zack Snyder, Matt Reeves, etc. CONFIRMED: Zack Snyder is directing. Now people want to know who’s playing Superman.
  • Set for theatrical premiere Christmas 2012, a few months after premiere of Batman Begins 3. Theatrical premiere is June 14, 2013.
  • Likelihood of Lex Luthor and/or Braniac as the main villain(s). Confirmed: Villain is General Zod.
  • No Brandon Routh or any returning cast members from Superman Returns. UPDATE: I’m thinking Routh might get a second chance now. Doesn’t make sense marketing-wise not to re-hire him. Warner Bros. always plays things close to the vest. If you’ve already conditioned all the fans into thinking Routh is Superman, it’ll be too much effort to re-market a new guy. Odds are, Routh is returning as Superman. Doesn’t matter who Superman is played by (as long as he’s white), people will watch it no matter what. What a strange phenomenon.
  • Henry Cavill is the new Superman – Who is this guy? Doesn’t look like an epic hero type. Alas, must wait and see if Snyder can deliver.
  • Diane Lane is confirmed to be playing Ma Kent.
  • Kevin Costner is confirmed to be playing Pa Kent
  • Snyder hints that the new title will be simply “Man of Steel”, taking the Nolan approach similar to naming “The Dark Knight”. He also says there will be no references to any of the previous Superman films before. Confirmed: the official title is “Man of Steel”.
  • Amy Adams is confirmed to be playing Lois Lane
  • Michael Shannon has been cast as General Zod
  • Connie Nielson has been offered the role of Lara El; Russell Crowe has been offered the role of Jor El;
  • Rumor Neil Patrick Harris is Jimmy Olsen Character has been replaced with a generic female archetype Jenny Olsen
