From the previous thread.

Quote:
Cavill will be the Fifth cinematic Superman.



Alyn and Reeves represented the Golden Age of the Silver Screen Superman.

Reeve and Routh represented the Donner Age of Superman.

Cavill represents a new Modern Age for Superman.

Cavill will also be the first cinematic portrayal of the Post-Crisis Superman (1986-present), while the others portrayed their respective versions of the Golden and Silver Age Supermen.

Interesting. I'm really looking forward to Cavill's take on the character. Hopefully, it's different and refreshing. I like Routh but feel like he was limited, given the context of Returns' storyline.

Brandon Routh is the George Lazenby of Superman films.

Of the Superman films? Technically George Reeves only starred in one Superman film as well.

Technically you could say the same about Kirk Alyn as wells since his Superman was more of a TV series than a movie since they didn't have TV's back then really.

But for decades, he was known as Superman. That's because he was immortalized on the Television series that ran for 6 years and two decades afterward in syndication. We can not say the same for Routh.

They were still big screen serials on the silver screen. Produced like films but aired with Sunday matinees.

Kirk Alyn starred in two:

Superman (1948) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZqOe5LXu1w

Atom Man vs Superman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNZm2i9d5uU


You can't really count something as a smallscreen television series before the creation of television itself.

Apples and Oranges.

You mentioned the films specifically. Reeves' TV spinoff for kids is moot. He still only starred in one big screen film technically.

There have only been 4 previous cinematic Superman (Alyn, Reeves, Reeve and Routh). Cavill is the fifth to carry the torch.

This is true since his take on Superman will not be tied to any previous movie incarnation. I think Singer toned down Routh's version of Superman in regards to his power even though he was supposed to be the continuation of the character established by Chris Reeve but also showed the character doing somethings that Post-Crisis Supes could do. For example, the super recharge at the end before lifting New Krypton, flying the other half of the Gertrude while standing on the very thing he is lifting, just to name a few.

Saying Routh is the 'George Lazenby of Superman films' isn't some irrelevant measure of how many films he has been in, but a comparison of the impact his brief appearance in the role has had on how people remember him. George Reeves made a big impression in peoples minds. So yes, unfortunately, much like George Lazenby, Routh will be overlooked when it comes to remembering previous Supermen.

He probably is the George Lazenby of the Supermen, though George was the one who made the decision.

So far..Routh has some luck but I can't see him being a leading man in anything. Dylan Dog looks ehhh. I'm just worried about his career.

I still don't think his physique will be all that hard to achieve for a workable Superman look.

He looks like he has bulked up a bit there. Is that a recent pic?

That was from his last movie that he just shot in Spain, prior to his Superman announcement.

The Superman curse only really applies to George Reeves and Christopher Reeve. Kirk Alyn is still alive and kicking, I believe, and all the Superboy actors (including Tom Welling) are perfectly healthy.

If anything, it's the 'Reeve/s curse'. So Keanu Reeves better watch out
