You’d think Warners would ask the actors who test for the role of Superman to stay quiet about it, wouldn’t you? Regardless of whether they have or not, the folks that have tried on the red knickers have been talking rather fluently about it. Ashton Kutcher and Jerry O’Connell, rumoured to have been potential Supermen, talk some more about the experience
Ashton Kutcher says he knocked back the chance to play "Superman" for a few reasons. "There’s a couple of things – my television show, it would interfere with the schedule. So I don’t think I’m gonna do it, because I’ll have to sign up for another year of the show in order to get out on time. It would just kinda set me back more than it would do for me. Also I think there’s a bit of a curse behind that role – the things that have happened to people. Also, I think once you’ve played that role then you’re just forever known as Superman. It’s kind of hard to play other thing. I have a lot of other characters I’d rather play." Thanks to Superhero Hype, People News
Meanwhile, Jerry O’Connell talked to Film Freak who revealed "[yes] I’m up for that Superman thing. See what happens, I don’t like to count all my chickens until they hatch". Continues O’Connell, "It’s a tough gig, I mean you’re signing yourself up for ten years. And you’ve got to jump into a tight spandex outfit". To listen to the full audio interview Click Here
And finally, Latino Review says "Superman" mightn’t be released until 2005 now.
