Casting Suggestions For Zack Snyder's Superman Film Reboot

Buzz In: Who Should Play the New Superman?

Superman flies again! News of a film reboot has been floating for months with Zachary Levi's name attached to the caped crusader (a rumor that the actor later denied). But have no fear, because this movie is most certainly on. Warner Bros. has just tapped director Zack Snyder of 300 and Watchmen fame to helm the flick.

Now, the big question is who will play our leading man? You've already suggested someone with Clark Kent experience like Brandon Routh or Tom Welling, though I have to say I'd like to see someone new don the "S." Other men who immediately come to mind: Jon Hamm (his name has popped up more than once on various gossip sites) or Chris Pine. Who's your pick?

I love the idea of Matt Bomer, although I'd be curious to see if he can bulk up and look believable. I love Tom Welling period, and I love him in Smallville but I really don't see him pulling off the suit or a movie of this caliber (let's not forget this is not just Superman - it's Superman by Christopher Nolan and David Goyer). Whatever the case may be, they better pick someone perfect who can deliver a worthy performance...

Matt Bomer would be great! Also Henry Cavill (Charles Brandon from Tudors) would make a fab Man of Steel!

TheEnchantedOne - Matt Bomer would be GREAT! I didn't even think of that!!! I wouldn't mind Brandon Routh having another shot. After catching up on Season 3 of Chuck, he has grown on me as an actor :)

Gotta give BRANDON ROUTH another chance with a new director, it wasn't his fault the last movie wasn't that great.Tom Welling is my next choice, love Smallville, love Tom Welling, big 6'3" and gorgeous and nice and built. Matt Bomer is gorgeous with great hair, but just too skinny and petite.BRANDON ROUTH ALL THE WAY.
