Henry might be known for playing Superman better than almost anyone else, but Matt was also once the alien farm boy from Kansas. In a 2015 interview with the podcast Happy, Sad, Confused, Matt revealed that he was once cast in a J.J. Abrams and Brett Ratner-helmed Superman movie that never came to fruition.
“Thankfully, Brett chose me for the project and then it all fell apart,” Matt said. “It was a month of, ‘okay, it’s going to happen,’ and then it slowly fell apart. But it’s okay. I have zero regrets about that. I’ve gotten to do such a rich array of roles and so many different things and I haven’t been too locked in to one thing. That’s a very iconic role to portray. You can suddenly be that character in everyone’s minds forever.”
