Tom is identified with Superman whether he likes it or not.

When did Tom say he was afraid of getting typecast? Certainly not in this interview, and not any others that I'm aware of. His reason was concern for the narrative not his career.

He seems pretty happy about it to me. He even played it up recently for a charity thing he did for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

Tom just isn't a guy who likes the limelight, he's a pretty shy guy. If you listen to his interview on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum then you get an idea of what kind of a man he is. He didn't wanna wear the tights but can you honestly blame him if he's a shy guy?

Also I think the fact he even says that he didn't quit the show because if he quits all those other people would lose their jobs is a Superman like quality.
