Timeshredder writes, I may have just nodded off and missed this story here, but if I haven’t….

I heard a radio report “confirming” that Ralph Fiennes will play Jor-El and Anthony Hopkins will play Lex Luthor in the Superman film (both have been Net rumours for awhile). They still don’t have an actor for Superman.

Given the number of delays this project has experienced in the past, and the number of times x has been “confirmed” to play y, they could easily cast Tom Welling without marring Smallville‘s timeline. Earlier this week, Brett Ratner was removed as director, and no casting was confirmed by Warner Bros. It looks like they’ve decided to make a fresh start with a new script and new crew.
