That would be the best bit of casting ever if true. It's right out of leftfield, and Crowe is someone I would never have associated with the role - but it's an absolutely inspired choice. Screw the haters, Zack Snyder has never failed to dissapoint (me)!

So its leftfield For Crowe to be in a commercial film? I dont think so. I was'nt surprised in the least. Makes perfect sense to me.

How great would Al Pacino have been in the role? Pretty awesome!

Crowe is amazing casting, there really has been a huge amount of work done in this area, am so excited for this.

leroythemasochist -> super? (17/6/2011 5:26:32 PM)

not so sure. i like crowe, like superman, happy that costner's in there too (way under rated if you ask me) but i still don't think it'll fly (sorry!) as a movie.
Problem is this: It's been killed already. in 1978 you just got a classic movie. A real, good, fun yet intelligent movie. With the best superhero actor of all time (and a damn fine actor out of cape and tights too) in the lead.
Add into this John Williams score and it was pretty unbeatable.
It's just another reboot/rehash/can we squeeze some more money out of the same old character and story.
Enough already! Isn't the world tired of all these shit superhero movies yet? What's so super about them anyway?

Good choice.... Was wondering why he'd decided to get back into the gym after an extended "fallow" period. Can't see him failing to deliver on a the necessary tortured nobility.

rtb2k6 -> Hmm never would have guessed. (18/6/2011 12:14:34 AM)

Crowe would be awsome.with nolan and snyder at the helm to guide it along it has the makings of a classic.nothing has come close to the donner original but i'm hoping for something special with this team.

Raffy -> RE: Hmm never would have guessed. (18/6/2011 4:33:44 AM)

I would rather have seen Crowe in Costner's role. Jor-El needs someone like a Pachino or De Niro.

Jacks Rage -> RE: Hmm never would have guessed. (18/6/2011 5:40:13 PM)

Sorry but those guys are way past looking physically "super". Crowe can still get into fantastic shape. Hell, he just looked great in Robin Hood.

Also, he's a thespian who can put some classic power behind his words. Just a great speaker! The man simply commands the screen.

Andybee76 -> Pacino?? (21/6/2011 8:47:09 AM)

Come on seriously!! The guy hasn't made good film in years!! I can't imagine that the role of Jor-el would require an actor who has to shout in every film!! Now don't get me wrong I love Pacino and De Niro but they are both way past their prime!! Crowe on the other hand is perfect a great actor still making good films and he has the gravitas needed to pull it off!! Perfect casting I think!! In fact the casting director on this needs an award as all these choices are brilliant!!
