Who will play Superman in the new Justice League of America Movie? Our friends at Dark Horizons are now reporting a rumor that Rupert Evans might have nabbed the role in a London SoHo casting session three weeks ago.
The 30-year-old British actor is best known as rookie agent John Myers in Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy, although he has appeared in a few television movies and appeared in a couple tv guest spots. Evans graduated from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, and also has a background in theatre. His publicity materials list him as 5’10”, which is almost a half-foot shorter than the character’s traditional height. Brandon Routh is 6’3” and Christopher Reeve was 6’4”. He seems like a bad choice from where I’m sitting.
