I'm going to have to say no to Routh for reasons Matt, I See Spidey, and Crook have already explained.

sure there is tons of folks who liked routh in the role and all that. But really it isnt likely he will be back, since we know according to nolan this will be its own footing film. So its more logical it will be a fresh new cast. which the film series really needs.

Nope, he shouldn't.

I've seen him in 3 things since Superman Returns. 'Chuck', 'Zack & Mari Make a Porno' and 'Table for Three.' In my opinion he has confirmed what I originally felt after seeing Superman Returns, he doesn't have enough charisma to pull of Clark Kent/Superman or duel identities/personalities.. at least based upon what I've seen.

There is absolutly no difference between suggesting Brandon Routh or Tom Welling for a reboot, both have literally zero chance due to both already playing the character. It isn't impossible, but it is as likely to happen as it would be for you find water in the Sahara desert.
Had this been a thread created with the same question only with Tom Welling.. heck even Henry Cavill being the actor in question, it would have been closed in under 10 posts. Why is this one open?

at most we will probably have guys who tested during the mcg/abrams-pre singer days who are around 30 yrs old along with many many other guys we dont even know.

I've no clue who to hope for. Questions need answering first.
Questions like....whats the age range that he wants this Supes to be?
Is this superman just starting out, like maybe his first year?
or has this superman been around for a while, say maybe 5 to 7 years?
Does he even care if he is 6'2 or more? i'm sure he does, but who knows.

It's fun to throw this name or that name out there, but untill we know the answers to those questions above, it's just spitting into the wind.

The one thing I love about Nolan is that he draws TOP NOTCH talent to his films, and
I for one can't wait to see his overall cast for this. I think the final say will be his anyway, so you might as well call it his cast.

Routh doesn't belong anywhere near a reboot.

As much as I loved Routh, he shouldn't be in the reboot. Give us something new and fresh.

Wait... SR=$391,081,192
BB=$372,710,015

SR did not get a sequel making MORE than BB did.

I'm thinking they will want at least half of what TDK did. So figure them minimum at $500,000 worldwide for a sequel.

I posted this on the Superherohype front page a while back but it applies here:

I think Avatar is a good example of what positive buzz is all about. It's not just internet buzz but word of mouth; it's you seeing a movie, being absolutely blown away by it you tell everyone to go see it. That's what avatar has done.

Something similar happened with Batman Begins as the re-launch of the franchise. Star Trek is another recent example - a lot of fanboys didn't like it but the majority of viewers loved, it got plenty of positive buzz and they're working on a sequel. That's what WB wanted to happen with SR but it didn't . People saw it, thought it was ok but that was it. Most buzz was either mediocre or negative. For the re-launch of a franchise i think they expected more.

The majority of people i've spoken to about the film thought it was mediocre at best if not boring. These aren't fanboys but the average moviegoer; i'm talking about people you may work with at the job, etc. They constitute the majority of the viewing public. I guarantee if the average moviegoer was really abuzz about SR then no matter what the fanboy outcry was they would definitely have made a sequel by now. The truth is no one was that excited about it. It was just another movie, nothing special.

BB cost less to make and made more on DvD sales than SR, plus it had a heckuva lot more buzz going for it afterwards.
