Ha, I doubt that would happen. I do have a friend though who has been an extra in a few movies. He said it was the most boring, yet easiest work ever. Basically they sat around the set all day until they were needed for a scene.

So they put out a casting call for extras, yet they still don't have a director? That's not a good sign.

Wow... I was surprised to see this thread is still here. Anyways. The Tudor's Henry Cavill has been reportadly cast as Clark Kent/Superman! Now generally they go for uknowns to play the big guy so this is a bit of a switch. Maybe he's an uknown to those who've never seen the Tudors or any of the other films/tv shows he's been in in the last decade? *lol* Oh well. Henry's a good actor and he's got the right looks and acting chops to play Supes. Should be fun.

The film is to be directed by Zack Snyder.

The most cliche complaint ever award goes to....

I like it. Shave,haircut and maybe a hours in the gym and the dude could easily pass for Superman.

I'll admit I might be jumping the gun on the casting choice, I am grateful that they went with a relative unknown though.

But I really don't think the selection of the director will be redeemed.

You mean you guys never heard the theory that Superman is akin to jesus.?

Or was that John Lennon?...

*OBLIGATORY DISCLAMER---I in no way meant any offense with my last post to anyone, be they active supermen or guys named jesus.
