I have got to say, after seeing Bomer in all those pictures, I wouldn't mind him as Supes. Its a bummer though that he is only about 6'. But Jon Hamm is that height I would MUCH rather have Bomer as Superman. No disrespect to Jon Hamm or his fans, he is a talented actor, but I absolutely HATE the idea of Hamm as Superman

I think this hairstyle could work out pretty well. It's more natural looking:

I think I agree with most here. Clark's hair should be carefully styled and slicked, where as Superman's hair is essentially Clark's all messed up. Once he's loosened his hair like that, the waviness makes a curl-like forelock hang over his forehead, like in the Bomer and Conway pics.

I hated Routh's hair in Superman Returns. It looked to weird and too brown.

His DC Universe Online look is perfect, hairwise:

I think he looks kinda bum'ish in that trailer which I think is intended. The hair is slightly frizzy and he's got pre-stubbles.

Kinda like:




But he definitely looks killer in that trailer!

I know, right?

Edit: However, I must admit that it actually made sense for that version of Superman.

I think Byrne might have had the best take on Superman's signature hairstyle. I get the impression he took the way Reeve's hair looked only made it more natural by having it be wavy on it's own so that when it fell on his forehead it just kinda did the S thing by itself with little to no need for product.

For a current live-action version I think right now Tom Welling almost has that. It just needs to be a touch shorter. I kind of like the idea of his Superman hair being loose and a little longish (but not like that mullet garbage from the 90's) then his Daily Planet hair being slick and tight.

Then whenever we see him as just Clark the person rather than Clark the Daily Planet reporter he's got the loose Superman hair but maybe has his glasses on and wears a t-shirt and jeans. Illustrating that is at once both men and neither of them.
