'Superman' torch is passed

Singer says he plans to use the late Marlon Brando in the new film. Brando, who played Superman’s father, Jor-El, in the 1978 Superman and died in 2004, will return in the same role.

Singer says he found stock footage of Brando shot by director Richard Donner in 1978, which will provide Brando’s voice. Special-effects crews will digitally re-create Brando’s image, Singer says. —‘Superman’ torch is passed (Yahoo!)
