For the most part, I don't blame Routh for the performance, as it was Singer's baby from the start.

It was Singer that wanted him to be a metrosexual.

Yes, he did. He absolutely inhabits the character in a perfect way.

He looked pretty manly to me. So, no, I think you are imagining things. Are you from that site full of homophobics called savesuperman?? A really weird place, imo. Way too much hate over there as well. Sad.

My favorite interpretation of Superman was probably the Justice League cartoon.

I thought he was most complete.

If Routh could have played that Superman, along with that one scene of him floating in the air saying that he could hear all the cries of help.

That would have been fantastic.

I don't say Welling would be a bad superman but I'm glad he's not in the running. After 8 years of watching the show **** up the super-mythos, If Welling ever got on stage in The Suit I couldn't ever forget the **** that came before.

I didn't mind Routh in the suit, and I'd be fine if he did step back in, just give his Clark Kent more chance to shine!!

Arrow Re: Routh may be out as Superman

Exclusive: DC Comics President Gives Superman Update
By Kellvin Chavez on October 9, 2008
Latino Review



The only thing better than living in New York, is being at a party in New York.
I was out on the town this past Monday night with my partners in crime El Mayimbe and Ron Henriques at the special WATCHMEN presentation that was scheduled for a hand full of media outlets.
The footage we watched to me was very good.
It had its moments. I definitely believe just like SIN CITY, you will either love it or hate it.
I loved the opening sequence explaining the creation and the rise of the Minutemen, which quite frankly blew me away! It was that good.
And honestly while I’ve never read the book, I must say I was inspired to immediately go out and buy one just so I am up to speed.

Anyhow, the real action didn’t happen inside the screening, but rather outside of it.
While mingling around with guest and watching my partner in crime sneak food into his Latin pockets,
I saw the one and only Paul Levitz, the President of DC Comics.
I walked over to him and had a moment to hang out and chat with him briefly.
I could not keep my mouth shut and had to ask the questions that Latino readers are asking. So I went in straight for the kill.

“So Paul, what the **** is happening with Superman?”
Well not in those words actually.
Paul looked over both shoulders like he was about to score some basura and said that things are still brewing.

In fact, he told me that “Last week Brandon Routh has come around the offices in New York and Los Angeles as of late to talk about Superman and what we want to do”……blah blah blah!

At first I thought it was the Apple Martini I was drinking but I soon realized that I just heard a bombshell go off in my brain! Brandon?
He did say Brandon Routh was coming around talking about Superman!
Why the hell would they be talking to Brandon if he was not going to be part of the reboot? Because he’s still in the mix!!!

The truth of the matter is that the way Mr. Levitz made it seem is that they love Brandon as Clark Kent and that he’s just a great guy
, which I agree.
I mean remember we at Latino Review told EVERYONE he was going to be the next Superman.

At that point my instincts kicked in and I continued with the questions. “What about Batman 3?
You guys must be going crazy over the success of that film.”
Paul pulls the cocktail shrimp from his mouth just enough to see him smile.
I asked when were they going to get this Superman reboot done and he gave me a look like he was about to tell me the answers to the mysteries of the world.
“Everyone is waiting for Nolan to sign on for another Batman, once that happens, the release date for Superman and all other future projects will follow.”

I could not believe my ears! Not only did my partner in crime blast wind next to me, but basically Superman’s future hangs in the balance until we have a concrete signature on the Batman contracts!
The party was getting good, and the drinks were flowing making this just as easy as prom night picking. So I pressed with my questions.
“What about Green Lantern and Supermax? How is that moving along?” Paul continued that Green Lantern was actually moving faster than Supermax, which to me makes sense because the Green Lantern script was badass!!
If you do not remember the review we did, here it is again.
The party went into the night, and the drinks continued to flow, finally I knew I had to leave as soon as my partner in crime started to stumble all over the place, looking kind of green in the face.

As of now just a few moments ago another inside source confirmed that yes they are waiting for Chris Nolan to sign the deal with the next Batman, and that they want him to commit to a July 2011 release.
If that happens then the following superhero films will be released;

Green Lantern Summer 2010
Batman 3 Summer 2011
New Superman reboot Summer 2012

Also in the mix is THE FLASH.

Anybody who is ripping Routh needs to realize he was only following Singer's interpretation.

I believe that Routh is potentially a very good Superman and deserves a second chance.

As far as I know, all the actors who have played Superman were all in 26 or 27 at the time. Except for maybe George Reeves, who looked like someone's grandpa.

Default Re: Routh may be out as Superman

well i may have thought he was terrible actor in the film and that was probably due to his skills and the direction singer took the film. He tried to make routh play the role like CR did and not his own way. But routh should only retun if and thats a big if the film turns out to be a sequel to SR. But if it does end up being a total and complete reboot stepping away from donnor/singer setting and a all new crew/story/cast superman needs to be a totally new actor.

You know, I don't think any of this story has ever been proven to be false. If anything, it seems like what was described throughout the article is, in fact, what has been happening.

I loved Routh as Superman, thought he was spot on.

I thought they maybe could've bulked him up abit more but what people are saying about the looking older thing, Kryptonians age slower than humans remember.

Routh had the potential to be a great Superman. Unfortunately, the director and script didn't allow him to be great.

I hear that; let's hope it happens.

What I find funny [not in the 'humerous' sense] is that Routh now looks more like Supes than he did for SR.
