According to DarkHorizons.com, things are finally picking up steam with the long-awaited next Superman movie. Highly-placed rumour is that Henry Cavill is the next man of steel, with Johnny Depp as a possible Lex Luthor, Adam Brody (from Fox TV’s The OC), and either Rose Byrne or Selma Blair as Lois Lane.

Not too bad on the casting so far, although I picture someone more “square-jawed” as Superman. Still, I’m pleased that they’re not going with a well-known actor (sorry, Henry). I think Johnny Depp can disappear into any role and that he would make an awesome Lex Luthor.

However…… McG (Get a real name, will you please?) is still in charge of this thing, and for me that spells T E R R I B L E.
