Inneresting choice! And unexpected!

Director Zack Snyder is reportedly hard at work prepping his reboot of the Superman franchise, and according to sources, he has his sights set on actor Matthew Goode for the coveted title role!

Wow! We didn't see that one coming - especially since it's such a mainstream movie!

We loved him in Matchpoint, though, so we're curious to see if this actually comes to fruition!

What do U think?? Would U like Matthew Goode as the man of steel??

    was superman always this pasty in the comix? maybe have a superman actor with some ethnic flavah this time.



  2. 2

    Tom Welling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  3. 3

    What was wrong with the last fella Brandon Routh? I thought the last film was good so why does it need a reboot? I thought the last film was the reboot. Tom Welling would be a good shout though as Smallville is good and he's been doing that for 10 years.

    Well let's hope they do this reboot as good as the Batman movies and with a certain Mr Nolan involved I'm hoping for good things. Darker.. Edgier..???

    Hmmmm, I do love me some Matthew but I'm not sure if he would be a good Superman…I wasn't too jazzed about him in Watchmen but maybe that's just me? I like him as a Brit. Superman should be American!



  5. 5

    Nope. Maybe as Spiderman, but not as SUPERman. Why can't Superman be black or something. That'd be a nice mixup. If it's gotta be a while fella, how about Adam Brody… a nice Jewish Kryptonian. Or… Jack Huston! There we go. He'd be great!

    He's not gorgeous enough! We need Tom Welling or Matt Bomer!



  7. 7

    YES YES YES YES YES. i LOVE matthew goode. he is so underrated.



  8. 8

    And the industry wonders why people download for free. Stop the fucking reboots of a reboot of a reboot. In the last 10 years we have spiderman, superman, 3 hulks and xmen. Now in the next 3 years there will be a new installment or re imagination of all of them. What happened to originality?



  9. 9

    I heard Joe Manganiello was front runner for this role…



  10. 10

    Shave his head and could play Lex Luthor´s nephew, Dweeb Luthor.

    Re: MrsRobZombie – Fuck Superman. Manganiello could play a brand new superhero: Visible Man (he thinks he is invisible, but here´s the thing, he is not, but no one tells him for reasons of sexiness…. it could be a porno!)

    Re: maxie pad – He's so sexyyyy (Joe that is, not this dorky looking dude above lol) Joe looks like a MAN.. he oozes sex!!! :) ~

    While Matthew Goode is a decent actor and very good looking, he definitely should NOT play Superman!! Tom Welling has been playing Clark Kent/Superman for 10 years and even had the blessing of Chris Reeve!! Tom is adorable, 6'4" tall and is PERFECT for the role!! GIVE IT TO TOM!!!!!!!



  14. 14

    how many times i have to say theres only one superman Tom Welling bout 10 years from nowww duhhh!!!!!



  15. 15

    WHAT?!!!!
    NO,NO,NO,NO,NO,NO,NO,NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
    WHY OH WHY THEY WANT THIS GUY?, HE DIDN´T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE SUPES EXCEPT FOR THE BLUE EYES.

    PLEASE BRANDON OR TOM WELLING



  16. 16

    Horrible choice! This guy is so weird looking and puny!



  17. 17

    LOVE IT! Brandon and Tom already have played the role so they would bring that baggage with them. I wouldn't want to see Tom with another actress playing Lois than Erica Durance or someone other than Michael Rosenbaum playing Lex, if they got cast too it would just be a Smallville movie. That wouldn't work. This is a reboot and it needs a fresh face. Matt Goode is an AMAZING actor and super sexy! Love this idea. BTW Superman is from Krypton, not America so the actor doesn't have to be American.



  18. 18

    while i love Matthew Goode, i think Tom Welling should definitely be Superman!!!



  19. 19

    are you serious? Why are they picking this dude to play SUPERMAN. Why not Tom Welling or Brandon Routh?? they make much better supermen!

    Put the whole age specific thing aside for once and pick Jon Hamm. He can certainly play a guy in his 30's. He looks more like the comic Superman than any of these choices.



  21. 21

    OMG! What did he do to his FACE????
    he used to look sooooo good, and now…
    *shakes fist* PLASTIC SURGERYYYYYY!



  22. 22

    Man of Steel? No. But if the do a movie called: 'Man in my Ass!' he'll get that 'roll' hands down!

    Can we get a manly man please? I'm sick of girly men. There are too many of them.



  24. 24

    terrible choice. definitely not superman!!!!!!



  25. 25

    HOT!



  26. 26

    I've only seen him in the movie with Mandy Moore. He was cute in it.



  27. 27

    MATTHEWWW GOOODEEE



  28. 28

    He looks scary in this picture o_0

    Clark Kent..Yes. Superman..No. They should film all the Kent scenes with him as this weedy nerd looking guy and then max him out at the gym and film the Superman scenes when he's put on some bulk (maybe CG him a squarer chin). You should be able to notice the difference between the two alter egos and you don't get that with the same actor in the same condition playing both sides.



  30. 30

    He is a great actor (Brideshead Revisited,Matchpoint,Cemetery Junction and The Lookout to name a few). He needs a lead role to put him on the U.S. map.

    Matthew Goode as Clark Kent and Matthew Goode in a CGI suit when he is Superman. Ryan Reynolds will be doning a CGI suit in the Green Lantern. Matthew is 6'2" with wavy hair (when long enough). This website does't show the best picture of him (maybe on purpose).
