Superman: The Man of Steel (2013): Robert Gerdisch Cast as Smallville's Whitney Fordham



Kudos to the new Man of Steel director Zack Snyder for throwing Smallville fans a bone.

Robert Gerdisch has been cast as Whitney Fordham in the new Superman movie.

Of course Whitney was the jock/football player boyfriend of Lana in Smallville that was at odds with Clark throughout high school.

Gerdisch joins Jack Foley as Pete Ross,
Janice Gould as Lana Lang
, and Dylan Sprayberry as a young Clark Kent, as they portray the "young" Superman years.

Could be all three are involved in the same scene that has to do with a bus crash.

With the three new cast members announced, Snyder appears to be going for a more middle school, perhaps, flashback scene compared to the popular high school Smallville setting, as Gould and Sprayberry are said to be around the ages of 13.

Note: Smallville fans eagerly anticipate the inclusion of fan favorite Chloe Sullivan.

Thanks to the "unofficial" Man of Steel FB Page for the info. 


Clark is revealed as the super man that he is to Lana when he saves the day during that bus crash.
