Superman's Father to be Played by...Marlon Brando?

by | March 10, 2005 | Comments

Were this strange piece of news reported by anyone other than the consistently reliable Latino Review, we’d probably just dismiss it as internet geek gossip, but the LR guys seem pretty darn confident about this scoop, so we’re gonna run with it: Apparently Bryan Singer, presently hard at work on his new "Superman" movie, wants Marlon Brando to play Jor-El, doomed papa of Kal-El. But since Mr. Brando is presently deceased, this might seem to cause some kind of problem. But, according to this report, Singer plans to use excised footage from Richard Donner’s "Superman" for scenes involving the elder Kryptonian. I had to check my calendar to make sure this wasn’t an April Fool’s gag, but this story is just strange enough to be true. Or perhaps the canny Mr. Singer and the folks at WB are just dropping this idea onto the ‘net in hopes of gauging the fan response.
