Warner Bros. Pictures launches massive talent search for the next Man of Steel

Director Zack Snyder and the VP of Feature Casting at Warner Bros. Pictures, are now officially on the hunt to find a new Superman. They are seeking a male who can appear to be between the ages of 28 and 32. The focus is on talented performers who are either unknowns or rising stars who do not carry the huge price tag of well established star talents. Warner Bros. wants to discover someone it can develop into A-list star status with the iconic role as Clark Kent aka Superman. The talent search will be exhaustive with the studio expecting to audition “hundreds of young actors”

Deborah Snyder, who is married to the film's director Zack Snyder, will serve as co-producer. Together they own the production company Cruel & Unusual Films. They recently wrapped principal photography on the Warner Bros. feature film "Sucker Punch" starring Australian actresses Emily Browning and Abbie Cornish, as well as Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung.

Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas will serve as the film's executive producers under the banner of their production company Syncopy, Inc. Syncopy has executive produced such feature films as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises (upcoming), and the recent blockbuster hit Inception.

Charles Roven's Atlas Entertainment is also on board to co-produce. Roven has previously collaborated with Warner Bros. Pictures on several Batman films and numerous other productions.

Superman is scheduled to begin filming in June 2011, and will hit theaters in December 2012.

Open casting calls, either online or on location, will be posted here as they become available.

To Be Cast


Clark Kent is a freelance reporter in his early 20's, traveling all around the world covering various news stories.

Upon his return to form, Kent returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and become the hero he was born to be.
