I think it’s pretty safe to say that Jim Caviezel’s out of the running now in terms of who’s going to be donning Superman’s tights.

"Superman" helmer Bryan Singer, along with Michael Dougherty, and Dan Harris all popped by NYU this week to talk the long-winded project, with Singer slamming reports that the "Passion of the Christ" star is the favourite to play the Man of Steel. According to Singer, Caviezel is a ‘known’ who he’s chasing is an ‘unknown’.

A scooper for Aint it Cool sat in the audience and took notes. "When asked if it will be a sequel, remake, or origin story, he said, in so many words, sequel. He said that the previous movies will be referenced in a "vague historical sense" (this wasn’t clarified), and that the origin itself will be handled in the same way it was in the first Batman movie, with intercutting flashbacks", says the tipster.

"Casting came up. He said that right now the main offices are setup in New York and LA, but he has 10 offices "all over the world." He said that he’s only looking for Lexes and Supermans right now, but he has a "sense of where he’s going to look" for his supporting players. Many students around the room were hoping for a shot at Jimmy. He said that he really wants to cast an unknown in the lead", he continues.

The "Superman" production moves to Sydney in November and begins shooting in March 2005.
