Zack Snyder Casting an Older Superman?

An actor who many are petitioning online for the role of Superman gives away a bit of detail on what director Zack Snyder is looking for in his man of steel.
Armie Hammer, who was cast in the now defunct George Miller Justice League film approached director Zack Snyder's people for interest in the role Superman but was turned away and he says why.
"I did talk to my people recently about Zack Snyder's film (Superman: The Man of Steel) for the first time. And I think they're going a little older with Superman. I hear they're going 35, 40," said Hammer.
Snyder is still working out the details for Superman: The Man of Steel, but the plot looks like it will focus on Superman's altar ego Clark Kent traveling the world as a journalist and coping with his powers and contemplating whether or not he should be the man of steel at all.
Superman: The Man of Steel is being produced by Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan and Mad Men star Jon Hamm is still rumored to be in the running to star in the Zack Snyder directed project.
