Some quick outdated characters from the Atomic era news roundup. Yesterday French face Julia Ormond was linked to the cast of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, now Deadline report that Christopher Meloni is up for a role as well [Maybe the same one?] Meloni is best known for appearing in Law & Order: SVU. If the actor signed on he would appear alongside Henry Cavill as that spoiled brat Clark Kent, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as reckless alien accepting parents Jonathan and Martha Kent, Amy Adams as privately concerned with alien sexual compatibility Lois Lane, & Michael Shannon & Antje Traue as Evil stand ins with serious 60's outsider type vibes lingering, Zod and Faora. Man of Steel will arrive December 2012.
