James Caviezel may be Superman?
posted August 31, 2003
Chalk this one under rumor at this point but according to superherohype.com comic book writer Mark Millar said on his website James Caviezel from the Passion of the Christ is definitely Superman and the movie would be starting everthing from scratch. The movie will just be titled "Superman" . Nothing official has come from Warner Bros yet so we'll just have to wait and see.

According to Cinescape 69 year old John Saxon from "Enter the Dragon" and Nightmare on Elm Street's Lieutenant Thompson.  Difficult shoes to fill for sure as Glenn Ford hit the nail on the head with his portrayal of Pa Kent in the original Superman movie. Of course John Schneider does a great job on Smallville every week.

New Superman Movie Casting

Apparently, a lot of people are trying out for the new Superman flick from unknowns to the stars, including Tom Welling of Smallville. According to Superman-V it looks like Tom has agreed to play Superman, but he still faces some stiff competition including James Caviezel from the movie Passion of the Christ , this years big hit. Also IESB talked to "Big Brother" star Nathan Marlow who confirms he too has tested for the role of 'Superman." "I auditioned for the role of Superman, you know it's kind of funny, I went in there and Jake Gyllenhaal was right in front of me and Josh Hartnett was coming in after me.
What do you think? Post it on the board.

Movie Update
posted August 12, 2004
Superman-V.com now says the producers are going to be Jon Peters & Gilbert Adler. I was really hoping Christopher Reeve and Richard Donner were going to be involved.  The good news is things look to be shaping up pretty fast. As a nationwide casting call for Superman is underway. Apparently the idea must be to get an unknown. 

However,  last night night on Fox News they mentioned that the man who starred in the Passion of Christ,  James Caviezel was pursuing the opportunity to play the Man of Steel.  He is definitely a good actor. He did a wonderful job on Passion of Christ, and the Count of Monte Cristo a couple of  years back.

I've also read from Ain't it Cool News that it will not be an origin story, but will somehow use the Superman universe of the Christopher Reeve films, thus the title Superman Returns.  This is definitely great news. I just hope it doesn't hurt the X-men 3 movie, but at least Superman is looking promising finally.  With the success of Spiderman this month a Superman movie is inevitable at this point.

New Time Magazine Article Read first 
posted May 12, 2004

My Opinion on Superman movie
New Time Magazines article talks about the movie problems and the need for Superman to be more human and darker like other modern heroes. Read the article for yourself, but personally,  I completely disagree with the notion Superman needs to be darker. I completely agree his human side needs to be shown in the comics. It's called characterization. But we have enough dark dread kind of heroes. Superman is my favorite for his optimistic, good old American, and small town personality. If you want to know what the perfect Superman is watch the first movie. It hits the nail on the head like no other movie, tv show or comic since,  especially the the first half of the movie and the Smallville sequence.  

Make a Superman movie already, just think about who Superman is. He's about truth, justice, and the American way. He's been brought up by a kindly couple with small town U.S.A. values. He doesn't live in the world of political correctness. He lives in the world of do unto others and you would have them do unto you. He fights to do the right thing and protect the innocent for the greatest of reasons. It's the right thing to do, and that's how he was brought up. Enough heroes, and I like their stories just not as much, are driven by revenge and anger.  You want conflict, the biggest conflict is the one between the hopeful and the disillusioned.  Let's see in the comics and movies the conflict between the ideals of Superman and the rest of the world. Now that might lead to some interesting stories.

Here's the latest  I've received from an email about the next JLA Avengers
posted March 18, 2004

This information is not official but comes from a reliable source.

The release of JLA/AVENGERS number 4 has been pushed back to March 31st to try and be prepared for the over whelming demand that will be following up to the final issue. It is rumored that there will be a few signed George Perez copies circulating out there and that the demand and back order is so over whelming that they're trying to be prepared for the tremendous demand, making this the most anticipating and perhaps best selling comic of all time, and the final rumor has it may also carry into a fifth and final issue as well to keep a cliff hanger for a possible sequel for as early as 2006, with Perez as the return artist, but to also write along with co-artist/writer John Byrne and co-writer Dan Jurgens as a possible plot suggester, Len Wein as editor and Alex Ross/Neal Adams as conciliated to grace the cover, making it Neal Adams first line of work in years.

Superman movie, well it play on the big screen?
Source: Superman-V.com, Mark Millar posted Feb 27, 2004
You thought you were confused about all this Superman mess? Here's some additional items that will only make it worse. 'Krisboyuk' pointed us to two 'possible' updates about the Superman production. First up,
Superman-V.com
Owen Paterson's agents have confirmed he is still on Superman "Owen still is the production designer for Superman. He has gone to Australia, because that's where they plan on shooting."
Our 16/2/04 update asked to look at things in two ways - it appears the latter is true. The move to Australia is happening and expect a whole new crew to appear. With the new rewrites happening hopefully the Australian Superman production will finally deliver.
Jon Peters and McG are still in the mix with McG's agents revealing the situation is still the same with Mr McGinty "Nothing has been confirmed, right now."

But comic book writer Mark Millar claims production on Superman is a no-go.
Trust me, McG is not getting anywhere NEAR this ****ing thing. He (and others) are talking about this as a means of rejigging their careers. No actress is being seriously considered for Lois and nobody is being auditioned for Supes because there is NO MOVIE, folks. Here's the scoop...
The movie is already something like 50 mill in debt because of all the false-starts. It's a HUGE problem because they want big stars, big effects and a big budget and this would push you to the 250, 300 million mark. This ain't gonna happen, especially with someone as choppy as McG and that ****ing awful script kicking around. A chum of mine, like I've said, has been making calls and taking meetings very quietly, has a few things he has to finish first and plans to get moving on this around 2006. Believe NONE of this bull**** you're reading because Beyonce, etc, etc, is just all pish. The real deal is still two years away from even seriously starting work on this so the flick isn't going to be seen until around 2007 at the earliest. There'll be possibly two Batman pics before the next Superman.

The REAL Superman Talks to Barbara Walters Friday Source: USA Today Thursday, November 13, 2003
USA Today says that Christopher Reeve will talk about being paralyzed since 1995, the progress he's made, and what people can do to help research.
Paralyzed actor-director Christopher Reeve Friday will speak publicly for the first time without the use of a mechanical ventilator, thanks to a "lung pacemaker" operation performed in February.
Relying on electrode implants to breathe normally and foregoing a ventilator for up to 18 hours a day, he hopes to bring attention to spinal cord research in a taped interview with Barbara Walters on ABC's 20/20 at 10 p.m. ET.
Since the operation, Reeve has been able to breathe through his mouth and nose ? for the first time in eight years ? for longer and longer periods of time, relying only on an implant powered by an external battery. A 1995 spinal injury paralyzed Reeve. He has since emerged as a prominent advocate for medical research.

Brendan Fraser Talks Superman Movie
posted Oct 27, 2003

USA Weekend has conducted an indepth interview with actor Brendan Fraser. Amongst the interview is the following paragraph regarding his position regarding the up-coming Superman movie...Superman would be both interesting and heroic, and Fraser is giving thought to playing him. "I'm not sure that film is going to get made, so stay tuned," he says. But he might like the role if the timing is right. The problem? "The actor who plays that role is forevermore identified as that character. Is it right for me? I don't know."
And also Vin Diesel as Lex Luthor? Dark Horizons reports that Vin Diesel appears to be in talks to star as Lex Luthor in the up-coming Superman movie. The rumor  seems to also think that the role of Lois Lane is down to a choice between Selma Blair and Drew Barrymore. Another interesting thing to note is that the reporter of this rumor indicates that the name of the film is "Superman: Last Son of Krypton"..."Heard that Vin Diesel - as Luthor - has met with McG and Jon Peters about Superman. Diesel turned down a couple of films lately - "xXx 2" for one - and someone I know seems to think it's because he'll be booked out for a good year or so on Superman LSOK. BUT... there's another stumbling block, McG has plans to do another movie first. I don't think he or anyone else associated is very interested in it anymore - yes THAT many people have met for Superman. It's been ongoing. The only difference now is that they might have an idea where they'll film, they've got a script, they've got a director and they've got a potential Lois [Selma Blair and Drew Barrymore fighting for it]. You really think Vin Diesel's going to put up with all the delays?"As always, take this rumor with a grain of salt. Nothing is official until we hear an announcement direct from Warner Bros.

Source: ComingSoon.net
During a press conference for the upcoming "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" DVD, director McG gave an update on the Superman movie.
"I'm a big fan of 'Superman,' and you know, I'm discussing it with Warner Brothers, but it's still very uncertain," he said. "It's a big project and they're being very cautious, and I'm being very cautious and it's yet to be seen if it's in the cards."
McG also addressed the issue of why Superman has had so many false starts. "I think they want to be very respectful of the crown jewel of, you know, all their franchises," he added about the studio. "It's a great character. And I think everybody who would ever be a part of that type of picture wants to get it done properly. So I don't think they're in any rush to make that picture, and I think their focus is on doing it right."

Warner execs and the long-delayed "Superman" is showing new signs of life.
Meanwhile, the studio has just received a new draft of the "Superman" script and is going through the budgeting process with helmer McG, following the departure of Ratner, who fell out over casting and other issues.
Though no deals are in place with McG and the pic does not have a greenlight, if Warners can get to a budget that works, the next step could be casting. If all goes well, "Superman" could see a 2005 or spring 2006 release.
Insiders say a final clash of the superheroes is still possible, but the studio is determined first to breath life into "Superman" a function of Horn and WB chairman-CEO Barry Meyer's mandate to build AOL TW's lucrative library gradually.

SUPER-SIZE SQUABBLES ON "SUPERMAN" 

posted Sept 2, 2003
The fighting between director Brett Ratner and producer Jon Peters got so bad during the pre-production for "Superman" that were at the point of physical violence when Ratner finally quit the troubled flick, according to Esquire magazine. 

The major problem was the ballooning budget. "Superman" was originally supposed to cost around $180 million, but Ratner submitted a $225 million price tag, which doesn't even include the $50 million to $75 million required to market the movie. 

Hairdresser turned movie exec Jon Peters also argued with Ratner over who should be the film's leading man. The studio originally wanted Josh Hartnett but Ratner wasn't so keen on him and insisted on a screen test. Then he turned to Ashton Kutcher and Jude Law, both of whom turned him down, at least partly because the studio insisted on a three-picture deal. The search then shifted to B and C-grade "hunks" like Brendan Frasier, Paul Walker and soap star Matthew Bomer, who the studio nixed. By the time Ratner agreed to sign Hartnett, the "Hollywood Homicide" star didn't want the role of the Man of Steel. 

The two ended up in a shouting match and according to the Esquire article, "Peters later claimed that Ratner threatened him with an armed bodyguard." to which Ratner shot back: "I don't need a guard to pull a gun on someone." 

In April, Ratner finally "jumped before he was pushed" and quit the "Superman" team. Most industry-watchers doubt the cameras will ever roll on this project.
