Latest Superman Movie Rumors...

The word is that WB is eyeing Beyonce Knowles for Lois Lane and Johnny Depp for Lex Luthor. WHY oh WHY did they not sign Selma Blair for Lois like they were planning to? Huh? Why?! Gah...

I guess they wanna compete with the freight train of **** without brakes, more commonly known as Catwoman.


What are the people at WB injecting these days?

OMG, she can't act for sh*t. Did you see Goldmember!? No amount of good looks can make up for bad acting. The film will be crap.

Actually I don't mind her acting. She's just is totally wrong for the part. Now Selma Blair is a natural choice for her and I have now clue why they didn't have her sign. She even said she was *this* close to signing a while back.

Sweet ****. I only now found out it's being directed by McG. Pretty much the only thing is A-hole has, "directed" are the two Charlies Angels movies. Why would they give this man this movie? Why? ****, I mean the man calls himself MCG.

So much for this movie.

^best superman movie ever.


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

Wait wait,


Lois shall be played by none other than Whoopi Goldberg,





Jimmy Olsen will have his shoes filled, (heh) by Lassie,





The reanimated corpse of our dearly departed friend Jim Varney will don the cape of Supes,





And Lex will be simultaniously be played by both Jay and Silent Bob,





Oh and Perry White will now be a super intelligent bird that lives at the daily planet and gives out assignments - that just happened to accidentally injest kryptonite twenty seven years ago!!!1

they look awful!!! talk about bad sfx!

I'd go to a jay & silent bob superman movie a lot sooner than i'd go to a Halle Berry Catwoman film, thats for sure....

Anyone remember a few years back when they cast actors that fit the roles, rather than the actors with the biggest names who might cause the most publicity....

someone saw her acting in Ep1 & Ep2 ???

Seriously, is this supposed to be a superman prequel (in which case would lois be in it?)? if not, why are they casting such young people?

Not another Teen Superman Movie....

Eh...I think that WB should have let Kevin Smith write the script like they were in the first place (watch An Evening with Kevin Smith and you'll undertstand)....Next thing you know, Tim Burton will be doing it all....

you forgot to add: "unless you are talking about Planet of the Apes." to that sentence.

I'd go for a Burton directed, kevin smith written Superman over anything by McG anyday.

I still think it will be hard to find anyone to match Christopher Reeve n the role, maybe that is why they seem to be going for a very young cast, to make it seem different to those movies.

I'd rather they had gone for a darker, cast against type "death of superman" kind of deal, but oh well...

You know, that might work.......Depp might be a good Jor-El. He isn't that big a character anyway.

It's still not a good thing that she's not playing Lois. The director, McG (ughh...) wanted her for Lois but was shot down after WB started getting blasted for it. I can only imagine all the crap that he's getting INTO the movie.

latest from IGN:

February 04, 2004 - Superman-V is reporting that Bruce Willis is in the running to star in the next Superman film, most likely as the villainous Lex Luthor. A source advised the site that the studio will give director McG "his choice for Superman but Warners will demand a couple of marquee names in prominent roles. They'll want a Brando and Hackman."

That last line refers to 1978's Superman: The

Movie, which cast unknown Christopher Reeve in the title role opposite Oscar-winners Marlon Brando as Jor-El and Gene Hackman as Luthor.

Superman-V contacted Willis' agency, CAA, who advised them that they had "nothing to report on this at this time." That's not exactly a denial, is it?

The rumor mill recently suggested that Oscar- nominee Johnny Depp was in the running to play Luthor opposite singer-actress Beyonce Knowles as Superman's love interest Lois Lane. But Superhero Hype claims Depp isn't up for the role of Luthor but rather Superman's dad, Jor-El.

The Beyonce Knowles rumor, however, has since been widely debunked so fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
