I am not entirely dissapointed by the choice of Jackmen; however, I felt that Kyle MacLachlan was more suited for the role. From the test shots, or audition footage, I've seen floating about, MacLachlan seemed to be the top choice for the role.  (Even though I think MacLachlan was a horrible Paul Atredis.)

Unfortunatly, Hollywood does not work on who is the best choice for the role and Jackman is somewhat a "hot property" nowadays.  I am, however, willing to give him a chance.

Very interesting.  The word in the press is that Miramax was objecting to Kyle MacLachlan because of his audition performance.  They claim it wasn't good enough.

I like him.  Remember all the objection to Michael Keaton as Batman?  But the first Batman movie turned out well.

Hollywood has a long tradition of preferring "hot" to "appropriate".  I still remember when they cast Donald O'Connor as Buster Keaton in "The Buster Keaton Story."  A very different type, but a hot name at the time.  I thought it worked.

the Superman doesn't look too bad on a man like the Wolverine suit does so I'm thinking they will stick with the original.

Really. I hadn't read the press on that. But, then again, my taste could be different than the execs at Miramax.

Agreed. I didn't object to Keaton. In fact, he was the best Batman there ever was.

Why do I get the feeling that this superman movie will be better than that other over budgeted mess.

Didn't Hugh Jackman appear as Superman on a SNL sketch when he hosted or have I been downing too much Kandorian brandy? :wink:

Actually Im a little slow on the upatake here-- Hugh is OUT thanks to Van Helsing.
