I think we can all agree that Ashton Kutcher as Superman would just be wrong, but apparently it was considered at one point. MTV asked him about it and Kutcher laughingly detailed his uncomfortable experience putting on Supe's suit for an audition alongside Kerri Russell as Lois Lane:

"I wore the Superman suit," he told MTV News. "I did a screentest in the Superman suit."

While Kutcher wasn't certain which director he auditioned for in the long list of filmmakers who were offered the gig at one point or another ("I forget who it was... I think it was [Brett] Ratner," he said), the actor did share some details about his Lois Lane -- and why it's for the best that he didn't get the role.

"There is [footage of my audition out there], with Keri Russell, who was reading Lois [Lane]," he said. "There's me in a Clark Kent outfit, and then there's me in a Superman outfit."

"It did not feel right," he admitted. "I hadn't worked out or done anything right. ... I was like a rail with fake muscles. It looked funny."
