Brendan Fraser Says He Lost Superman Role Due To 'Studio Politics'


Brendan Fraser is well-known for portraying different roles in films and television. However, there are a few things that people might not know about him.

The actor was approached to play the role of Superman a long time ago during 2000 and this was when a new film was being developed.

Warner Bros. hired J.J. Abrams to write a new film based on Man of Steel. However, Fraser was eventually not chosen for the role.

In an interview with Howard Stern recently, Fraser spoke about the experience saying how it felt like to be a contender for the role.

Fraser mentioned that everyone was reading about Superman and he recalls that Paul Walker was before him along with many others.

Brendan Fraser realized that the role will change his life and there was some Faustian bargain that was involved in it.

Fraser did not play the role of Superman and Warner Bros. did not take forward the plans of Superman: Flybay apart from developing it.

Fraser added that he felt disappointed that the opportunity went away from his hand and suspects that it had something to do with some shenanigans and studio politics.
