Russel Crowe to Play Jor-El in Superman Reboot?

It looks that way as Hollywood trades are reporting today that Crowe is currently in negotiations to play Superman's Kryptonian father in the upcoming Warner Bros. reboot of the franchise.

If true, perhaps the casting of such a high profile star might signal that Krypton and it's cataclysmic end might feature more prominently here than in the earlier films. If it turns out to be anything like the movie that ushered in the excellent Superman: The Animated Series, then we'll be very happy fanboys & girls.
