i just read that brett ratner(rush hour, red dragon) has been signed to direct the new superman movie, scheduled for release in 2004. he said it will be a re-telling of superman's origins, and anthony hopkins may play Jor-El. he said no one has yet been cast to play superman, but they are looking for an actor under 25.
j.j. abrams, the creator of "alias" has written the script.
what does this mean for the rumored batman vs. superman film? are there going to be 2 different actors playing superman? hopefully the batman vs. superman movie has been dumped. what's next, the hulk vs. wolverine?
