** Henry Cavill was almost cast as Superman in 2004 for the reboot ''[[http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/thegeekfiles/2012/02/mcg-keen-to-see-henry-cavills.html Superman: Flyby]]'' (written by Creator/JJAbrams, with Creator/{{McG}} attached as director and Creator/RobertDowneyJr in talks for Lex Luthor), even getting down to the last two choices, [[DevelopmentHell before the project was redesigned]] as ''Film/SupermanReturns''. There's a picture of his screen test [[http://www.movieweb.com/news/henry-cavills-superman-flyby-screen-test-revealed in costume.]] The other top choice was none other than Creator/BrandonRouth, [[http://i.imgur.com/PDwjnm5.jpg who also screen-tested in costume.]] When [=McG=] left due to fear of flying on a plane (seriously), Creator/BryanSinger came onboard and changed the project to a sequel to the earlier Christopher Reeve films. He went with Routh because he looked more like Reeve.
** Mark Millar (with Matthew Vaughn directing) wanted to do a three movie, eight hour epic that detailed Superman's entire life, from the early days on Krypton right up to when he's the last living thing on Earth as the Sun goes supernova.
