Zack Snyder's 'Superman': Matthew Goode is Rumored Frontrunner

By Fandango's: Erik Davis on November 22, 2010 at 2:03 PM

The other day we told you how Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder were gearing up to look at hundreds of potential actors for the role of Clark Kent/Superman in the next Man of Steel movie, which is set to begin production this June. There's somewhat of an accelerated pace on this project because they have to be in production on a new Superman movie by a certain date or else Warner Bros. may have to forfeit the rights, which means we're probably going to have a steady dose of Superman stories over the next few weeks.

Matthew Goode

Could the studio be looking to lock in their man before the holidays? A new report suggests just that, as the rumored frontrunner is now Matthew Goode, who starred in Zack Snyder's Watchmen adaptation as Adrian Veidt, aka Ozymandias. So, yeah, the guy does bring a little superhero clout to the table, and he certainly looks the part of a clean-cut, well-built wholesome Man of Steel, despite the fact that the majority of you would rather see Smallville's Tom Welling in the role (according to the 100-plus comments we received from our Superman post the other day).
Chances are Goode is just one of the many people they're looking at for the part, so I wouldn't jump to conclusions and immediately freak out, even though, on paper, he does seem like a suitable-enough match, especially considering his experience on Watchmen with Snyder.
What do you think? Is Matthew Goode a…good choice for Superman?
