The Superman reboot entitled THE MAN OF STEEL has been set a slate for summer 2012.
The race is on now to find the next Superman actor. Already mentioned in an earlier article, Superman Returns actor and Christopher Reeve lookalike, Brandon Routh is out of this one as well as previous director, Bryan Singer. Warner Bros wanted a fresh new edge on this superhero movie franchise and brought in Chris Nolan of The Dark Knight fame to inject some magic.
The front runners for Clark Kent/Superman are Tom Welling (Shown pictured about looking over the earth) of Smallville fame (but he is constantly turning this one down because he does not want to wear tights?) Mathew Bomer and Henry Cavill.
Lets see who makes the cut. In the meantime, look out for a more flirty bachelor type Clark Kent in this one, who's parents are still alive and who's Superman counterpart isnt the type to be able to pick up a planet!
MAN OF STEEL goes into production next summer.
