Director Zack Snyder has found his man to play the patriarch of the one and only last son of Krypton. Jor-El, father of Superman, might be played by Russell Crowe. The veteran actor is in talks to take over the role that was made famous by Marlon Brando in the original epic SUPERMAN THE MOVIE.

Warner Bros. of course had no comment on the apparent casting of Crowe to appear in THE MAN OF STEEL. He joins a pretty super cast that includes, Henry Cavill as Superman, as well as Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon. The script was written by David Goyer, who also developed the story with Chris Nolan. The Superman film is being produced by Charles Roven along with Emma Thomas, Nolan and Deborah Snyder.

Actress Connie Nielsen is reported to play Kal-El’s mother. Nielsen starred opposite Crowe in GLADIATOR, who is currently filming THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS for Universal. Filming is slated to begin next month for THE MAN OF STEEL, and casting of smaller roles will conclude with Jor-El.

In high school, Sean wanted to punch the subject of English right in its face. By far his best class, he hated doing research and writing papers. Ten + years later, he is an aspiring writer. It would seem that career goal of leading the New York Knicks to an NBA championship didn’t quite pan out. He started writing film reviews just over a year ago and became a movie buff even further back than that. He’s dabbled in fiction, poetry and random articles filled with nothingness on his way to hopefully one day becoming a published author. Hopes high, right now he’s over there sitting in the corner with his fingers crossed. Visit his blog -
