    Actually I felt the headline was a bit of entertainment journalistic genius. Kudos Michael. Also, with Diane onboard and the possibility of Sheen as Jonathan, my expectation for this film has moved up a couple of notches.

    Martin Sheen is kind of old for the part I think. Or maybe I am thinking how young Jonathan Kent was in Smallville.

    You can’t have Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and then Johnathan Kent. Pick a universe, DC or Marvel.
