The news is that Hugh Jackman has been cast as George Reeves in the upcoming murder mystery biopic, Truth, Justice & the American Way.



He did an excellent job as Wolverine in X-Men, this movie just keeps getting better and better  Cool

Jackman is a surprising choice but not a disappointing one.  I'm more anxious to see it now.   Smiley  S!

I would have preferred someone more Superman-ish.  And having someone who can capture Reeves' smile and charm is absolutely essential.

I think they only chose Hugh Jackman because of his big name appeal.

But Brendan Fraser would have been completely perfect as Reeves and had the big name.

Kyle MacLachlan was an excellent choice and I was rooting for him.  I know that he had been lobbying for the role and I think he was even cast by the Polish brothers before they got thrown off the project.

I've never seen MacLachan show the personality to be Reeves though Fraser would have been a good choice, in fact I'd still vote for him as Superman in the upcoming movies over the other choices. I think Jackman will do fine.

He seems better to just stick with Wolverine.

Gee if he plays George Reeves and wears a Superman costume does that mean on the various DC messages boards we will see such classic threads such as Wolverine or Superman which Hugh Jackson character would kick the others butt? :lol:

If they show him in a Superman costume, will it be a retro 1950's George Reeves looking costume, or will it be a more modern one, like from the movie or Lois and Clark?  A retro costume would be more accurate, of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if they used one of the newer designs.

I hope they use the George Reeves design.  It wouldn't be logical not to.   S!
