Good news. Seems the ‘unknown’ might get the nod to play Superman in the forthcoming film. According to Entertainment Weekly – via Superhero Hype – Director Brett Ratner really likes soapie star Matthew Bomer. "[Director] Brett Ratner liked him, plain and simple," says Bomer’s manager, Bill Treusch. "He tought he was a terrific actor and told him if Warner started testing unknowns, he’d be considered." Bomer – should he get the gig – would be signing on for a three picture deal.
