Dandy, that's one less Superman Returns defender I'll have to sit next to in the theater.

Routh had a shot at Superman already. Maybe under the right direction he could have been good, but Bryan Singer mucked things up so bad that the next Superman movie needs a clean sweep. It's not throwing out the baby with the bath water, because there's simply no way to keep Routh while simultaneously undoing all of the damage that Singer did to the franchise. Routh carries with him the baggage of SR, and to start over there will have to be a different actor as Superman.

Thing is not everyone wants routh out and by getting a new superman you have the battle again to introduce him-to a new audience. I think they have enough problems already.
I thought he was really good as superman. At first i thought it would be a bad idea to reboot and forget the last one. But now i see its the only way to go. But where can you go with the kid mix. I think under the right directer a good script and a lois who's good. He'd be better.

Cool Re: Routh may be out as Superman

getting rid of routh isn't a solution guys, stop with tom welling or the guy if i'm correct from the spirit. brandon did a good job and for the studio muck this up by wasting time finding a new superman is just going to ruin the franchise. besides his contract expired & so far the studio hasn't completely dropped him.

just fix problems for SR make a new movie it not that difficult if most of can do it i don't see why wb is creating all these unnecessary problems for themselves and can't.

so stop trying to blame routh he's superman and a good one. wb should quit trying to do is turn supes into a batman clone.

Default Re: Routh may be out as Superman

I never quite got that fanboy obsession with actors that played certain characters. You know, just because Routh was Superman in that last movie dosn't mean anything to me. Just like Bale isn't the only guy capable playing this part, nor nessecarily the best choice. If somebody else had gotten the role that somebody else would have the fan support now. It really isn't a matter of how good or bad the job he did was. There are always people who like it and people who don't.

Personally, i really don't care all that much if he returns or not. The only important thing is that they find someone who has the skills to do justice to the character and fits the vision/direction the director wants to go. And while i think Routh didn't do a bad job with what he was given in SR, he didn't do anything outstanding that makes me say, i HAVE to see the guy in the tights again. What IMO actually militates against Routh is the fact that he brings the baggage from the last movie with him, that should be lost.

good point, even though i would like too see routh back, is should be about the best actor.
i still feel routh should do the next sequel why waste time and money.

but this wb the execs can even decide how to supposedly reboot the franchise and now with 2012 deadline we are libel to get peace a crap from the studio.

Part of it may be the result of hurt pride over the most recent representation of their favorite hero being transient and expendable, compared to the multi-installment success of others. Having a constant face to the franchise creates a sense of solidarity and continuation, whereas things are obviously in flux.

Routh would not have sucked too most, if he was put in a modernized origin film.

What are you talking about with this revisionist history? Brandon DIDN'T suck to most, on the contrary, check your "facts".

And how does this association work exactly (origin film = better acting)?

Yeah, that too. JC is so obsessed with his origin film that he doesn't realize the absurd things he writes sometimes.

Its annoying when people come out with stupid comments like Routh sucks etc. End of the day you either liked him or you didnt there's no need to say stupid comments like that just to spark up arguments etc. Its the same with the people who just constantly critcise Smallville for been different, so what if it is different? at least were not been told a rehashed story over and over in the same way. I just wish sometime people on boards would answer things properly without trying to stir things up.

I for one do want Routh back, I loved him in Returns and hope he gets to play the role again.
