Jude Law rejected superman in the early 2000s because he “just felt bad,” which he knows sounds ridiculous considering he would later agree to star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and play Dumbledore in the franchise “Fantastic Beasts”.

The actor confirmed that he was intended to play the Man of Steel in the failed Superman project. Brett Ratnerwhich was announced in 2002 and based on a version of the script by “Superman: Flyby” of JJ Abrams.

“So this is true. Yes. And there was a casting process,” Law said on The Playlist’s “Discourse” podcast. “And I always resisted because I felt [apagado]. And I know you might say, ‘Well, but you played Yonn-Rogg and Dumbledore!’ “It just seemed like a step too far.”

The failed Superman movie

“I think it was when Brett Ratner was going to direct. And they didn’t have a script, if I remember correctly,” Law continued. “Did they have a script? I don’t remember reading any. This was a long time ago. They brought me the suit. They thought, ‘This might change your mind.'”

Even trying on the suit wasn’t enough to convince Law that he should play Superman. Despite reports to the contrary, Law did not try on Superman’s original suit. Christopher Reeves and instead used something that was “more metallic.”

“Anyway, I tried it on and looked in the mirror and part of me initially said: ‘Wow, this would be [algo bueno]’, and then I thought: ‘No, you can’t, you can. Do not do this. You can not’Law said. “And I didn’t sell myself. And I walked away and the movie never happened anyway. “Then maybe I probably wouldn’t have done anything.”

Ratner’s Superman project collapsed, as did Tim Burton failed before. Warner Bros. would finally get a Man of Steel project off the ground with Superman Returns of Bryan Singer in 2006, starring Brandon Routh as the superhero.

Law wasn’t the only actor vying to be Ratner’s Superman. Matt Bomer He recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he was possibly the director’s final choice for the role, but it was taken away from him after he came out as gay.

“That was a time in the industry where something like that could still be used as a weapon against you,” Bomer said. “How, why and who, I don’t know, but yes, that’s what I understand.”
