Now Examiner National has thrown another name into the ring with WWE Superstar John Cena, who is also rumored to be up for the part. This has also lead to speculation that Dwayne Johnson may be gearing up for the role as well. Both wrestlers-turned-actors certainly have the physic for Superman, but they may be too hulked out to portray mild mannered reporter Clark Kent in a realistic light. Though it is too soon to rule out any possibility.
Casting rumors will be all over the place, and as evidenced by the rumor above, bordering on ridiculous, until an official announcement is made. Bryan Singer, director of 2006's Superman Returns, recently caught up with Coventry Telegraph to add in his two cents about this upcoming reboot, and why he opted out of directing a sequel:
Superman was released December 15th, 1978 and stars Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve, Ned Beatty, Jackie Cooper, Glenn Ford, Trevor Howard, Margot Kidder. The film is directed by Richard Donner.
