Nolan and Snyder Begin Looking for Superman

Superman

Deadline has the exclusive on the casting search for upcoming Superman film, in which they claim producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder have begun to cast a “wide net” to find the next Man of Steel. He who will don the cape and tights could very well be an undiscovered actor, or relatively unknown TV star, according to the site. Nolan, Snyder, and the studio are likely looking at actors in the  28-32 age range and could possibly look at hundreds of potentials before picking their man. The buzz on current candidates point to Armie Hammer from The Social Network and Joe Manganiello of True Blood.

The other most important piece of information plucked from Deadline’s article is that the film will reportedly begin production in June 2011. Head over to Deadline to get the full scoop on the exclusive news. Also let us know who you would want to see as Superman in the comments below!

Goyer’s Man Of Steel Storyline Revealed?

David Goyer and Superman: Birthright.

Information surrounding the next Superman film has been a hot topic since Monday’s announcement of Zack Snyder landing the directing job. Since then, Snyder has made a couple statements about the story and how he believes it shows that Superman can work in a modern milieu. We also heard that General Zod (one of the villain’s in the first two Superman films) is the villain in David S. Goyer‘s script. Countless other little bits of information have been revealed or speculated about. Tonight, however, we learned the cool stuff: the possible premise of Goyer’s story. New York Magazine’s Vulture has learned that the film will follow Clark Kent, “a journalist traveling the world trying to decide if he should, in fact, even become Superman.”

In what appears to be a origin story, this take on the character is a solution to Christopher Nolan‘s primary concern of being able to address Superman in a realistic context. The biggest red flag in this recent news appears to be, according Vulture, that Goyer’s script was rushed and needs work. The film is on a very tight schedule, as it must be in production by the end 2011 due to legal obligations, and the script is apparently proof of that. This, it seems, isn’t necessarily anything totally freak out about. It appears that Warner Bros. and Nolan feel confident that Goyer’s script is a good jumping off point and that Snyder can deliver the remaining goods.
