Superman: The Man of Steel (2013): Richard Schiff Joins Cast As Dr. Hamilton



The new Superman movie, the Man Of Steel is currently filming in Vancouver. We've recently seen a couple pics of Henry Cavill and Kevin Costner.

Now we get another cast member with Richard Schiff, as Variety reports he will play a character by the name of Dr. Hamilton.

Schiff is best known for playing in West Wing as well as appearing in Criminal Minds, and he also appeared in the short lived NBC super hero series, The Cape.

So what role will Dr. Hamilton be playing in the Zack Snyder directed reboot? Friend or foe?!


Update: This has to be Professor Emil Hamilton! An apparent villain that views Superman at times to be a potential threat to the world -- which fits in with the theme of the movie! However, he has also come to Big Blue's aid such as creating the Phantom Zone projector and the Superman "robots." Most recently, Hamilton was the villain Ruin, who targeted Clark because he thought Supes was draining the Sun dry! Thanks Wiki!

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
