UK Times Online reports that Director Brett Ratner and the film’s producers have turned to London, Sydney and New York in the search for an unknown actor to play the Man of Steel.
Seems the filmmakers have already auditioned 40 British drama students and young actors in recent weeks for the part with the choice likely to come soon as filming is scheduled to begin in four months at Pinewood Studios.
Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that during this search process one Australian actor impressed Ratner enough that he apparently met with him recently again in the US – who? Blond muscle bound 26-year-old Ryan Kwanten, best known for his role as Vinnie Patterson on “Home and Away”.
No word yet on if he had any success or not though.
