Nite Owl Up For Superman Job?

on Monday, November 8, 2010

Patrick Wilson, who is known for his superhero role in Zach Snyder's 2008 adaption of "Watchmen", where he played the character of Nite Owl II, is reportedly up for the role of Superman in Snyder's new "The Man Of Steel" film.
Wilson has announced that he would love to play Clark Kent/Superman in the new film if his director friend (Snyder) was to cast a slightly older actor. He has requested a copy of the script from Snyder. And Snyder has said that he's spoken to Wilson about the role. But then again, Snyder's done the same thing with Brandon Routh.
Now, Wilson is 37, not that old though. But the studio are most likely gonna go with a younger actor. Mid to late 20's, even early 30's.......for example Brandon Routh and Tom Welling.
