Russell Crowe will attempt to banish memories of Marlon Brando as he assays the role of Jor-El, father to Superman, in Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL reboot. Crowe joins Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon in the cast. The script is by David Goyer, while Christopher Nolan instructs from the sidelines.

Now, the BIG question will be pronounce it “krip-TAHN”, like most people, or “KRIP-tin” like Brando?

    I freely admit that coming up with material for a Superman reboot is something that I’m not qualified to do. I’d look at the previous movies, all the comic book stories, try to think of a new approach to his origin and early years that would entertain people new to Superman and those who know him well — and come up empty. As powers go, invulnerability is invulnerability is invulnerability.

    Coming up with a replacement for Superman might be pretty easy: Change his origin from Krypton to another dimension, and have his powers stem from the change in dimensions. It’s just another path to the same destination. Coming up with a replacement for “Superman” would be hard, though.

    SRS

    don’t be surprised if this actually happens!

    Crowe looks like a Wayne Boring drawing so, could work.

  8. Kal-El, I am your father, Russ-El.

    And that is why Ian is an award winning writer.

  10. Kate Fitzsimons says:

    So, that would be the part of the Superman movie I wouldn’t fast forward through, then? Good to know!

    Um, Russell, I know you’d be playing a dead alien, but hey! You’re working! Maybe someone will see it and let you star in a movie not made by RZA…

    So what, he’s gonna play a drunk Kryptonian who beats up Jor-El and steals his wife and son?
