Russell Crowe The Equalizer

With an already impeccable cast being set up for Zack Snyder’s upcoming take on Superman, THE MAN OF STEEL, that very crew just got a whole lot bigger.

Variety is reporting that Russell Crowe is in talks to play the biological papa of the Man of Steel, Jor-El, in the upcoming film. Sean Penn and Clive Owen were once looked at for the role, but Crowe appears to have won this battle, walking in the same steps as the most well known Jor-El, Marlon Brando.

Crowe joins Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, and Antje Traue in the upcoming film, which is set to start shooting sometime next month, with a December 2012 release in place. Personally, I can’t think of a better bit of casting than the one we have here. Crowe is absolutely perfect for the role, and is far superior to either of the other two names mentioned here.
