Hmm, does this mean Superman won't be circumcised?
Marlon Brando portrayed Superman's biological father on Krypton in the original 1978 film starring Christopher Reeve.
Now, as for Supes' costume...
Earlier this week, DC Comics gave fans their first look at a redesign of the beloved superhero's costume--look, no red underwear!--as part of a new relaunch of the Supeman series. The new get-up features beading along the top portion and what appears to be some kind of below-the-knees armor/boot combo.
No word yet from filmmakers if they will opt for the old-school tights or new look ( paging Wonder Woman ).
Meanwhile, if the deal indeed goes through, Crowe would join an already stellar cast that includes Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Amy Adams.
