Russell Crowe: Jor-El in 'Superman: Man of Steel'?

Russell Crowe is currently in negotiations to take the role of Jor-El in the highly anticipated franchise reboot Superman: Man of Steel, according to Variety.

The 47-year-old Oscar-winning actor would take on the role of Superman’s biological father, made famous by Marlon Brando‘s cameo in 1978′s Superman.

Superman: Man of Steel will star Henry Cavill in the title role, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and Michael Shannon as General Zod.

Russell is currently filming the action flick The Man With the Iron Fists.

    bad choice. dont like it.
    people from krypton are supposed to be tall, strong, and goodlooking.
    he isnt any of those.

  • Ismail

    Wow! most unexpected casting news in a long time.

    Great choice though. Crowe is bad-ass.

    He is our Era’s Marlon Brando!

    @mailey: Russell Crowe is 5′ 11″ … I think that’s tall enough ;)

    And how do you know that people from krypton are supposed to be good looking? you spent some time there?

  • Jessa

    Cavill is foreign, Amy Adams too old to play Lois lane.
    All the casting is wrong.

  • 87

    @Ismail: LOL our era doesn’t have a Brando. There is no one like him, never will be.

  • Bunny

    Good choice…hope it all works our.

  • Bunny

    SORRY…HOPE IT ALL WORKS OUT.
