Matt Bomer Reveals He Almost Got to Play Superman
‘Magic Mike XXL’ stud, Matt Bomer, opened up about almost being cast as Superman when he was around 23-years-old in a recent interview with Josh Horowitz’s ‘Happy, Sad, Confused’ podcast.
“I screen tested with Amy Adams in the tights,” said the also, who revealed that both Brendan Fraser and the late Paul Walker also tried out for the role. “Thankfully Brett chose me for the project… it was maybe a month of ‘Okay this is going to happen’ and then it just slowly fell apart.”
That is, the role was instead passed on to Brandon Routh in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns. Warner Bros later rebooted the franchise again with Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill in 2013 and a sequel titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is due next year.
