Mad Men got the starring role as Superman/Clark Kent? Well, I'll give people one thing, he looks the part. I mean, look at the picture below of Hamm in Mad Men vs. the animated Clark Kent. Wow.
Why is this even coming up now? Because the movie is on the fast track to production. Plus it's fun to guess! I don't think Warner Brothers is going the Superman Returns route by casting an unknown. Thank goodness! Enough already. Director Bryan Singer's rationale is that Superman is an unknown to humanity and therefore he wanted to cast someone none of us knew. Well to hell with that, man! Enough. Casting a big name is the way to do it.
No matter who stars, I believe the movie will be a success. There are other, key ingredients that have set this picture up for success. Christopher Nolan will produce, David S. Goyer is writing and Johnathan Nolan will possibly direct. We're getting there, folks. A Superman for our generation, no more bubble gum bullshit. Sorry for swearing, I hated Superman Returns so much. I was literally the only person in a group of 20+ people that had the guts to say I hated it as we were leaving the theater.
