Many people have asked about Routh since then, to many people in US, he may not be popular but some Superman fans outside US still think that he did a good job.
Then there are many who don't like the reboot trend, so it will be a tough for WB to convince many people to go and watch the new take on Superman.
I hope that Nolan's name will be able to draw in the crowds.

Superman is definitely the franchise that will have its fair share of hurdles to overcome. Spider-Man had three financially successful films, with the first two having been well received critically, thus it wasn't that hard to sell the GA on going to see a new spider-man film. And ever Marvel Studios film has the Avengers to thank for in helping boosting their popularity as well.
Superman hasn't had a big breakout film in ages and we haven't had anything really big to sell the public on; with most people not even being aware that there's a new one coming out.
