Superman 5 movie casting looking good?

According to, 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.

Johnny Depp (Lex Luthor)

Selma Blair (Lois Lane?)

Rose Byrne (Lois Lane?)

Adam Brody (Jimmy Olsen)

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.
