Russell Crowe Cast As Jor-El In 'The Man Of Steel'

Russell Crowe is in final negotiations to play Jor-El, the Kryptonian father of Superman who forsees the destruction of the doomed planet Krypton and sends his infant son Kal-El on a ship bound for Earth in Zack Snyder's 'The Man of Steel.'

Warner Bros. have so far declined to comment on the talks with Crowe, but it is expected that an announcement should be made very soon to confirm the role as production begins on the film next month. Other names under consideration for the part included Sean Penn and Clive Owen
