Russell Crowe will attempt to banish memories of Marlon Brando as he assays the role of Jor-El, father to Superman, in Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL reboot. Crowe joins Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon in the cast. The script is by David Goyer, while Christopher Nolan instructs from the sidelines.
Now, the BIG question will be pronounce it “krip-TAHN”, like most people, or “KRIP-tin” like Brando?
