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

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?

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

# 4

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