Superman is getting a prequel chapter.

Earlier I told you that Dr. Pepper has a prequel comic to Batman v Superman as a promo. Buy a can or Bottle and you’ll get a chapter via Bippar. The chapters feature a difference characters.

Welling has matured nicely. More rugged look.

Cavill needs to connect more with audiences in BvS. I think that is what WB is looking for.

That Clark will be on display is good.

None of us have seen the whole film but so far Cavill is holding his own with Affleck. Some of their scenes seem off but both of them seem off a bit.

Welling doesn't have a face that reminds me of Superman.

Honestly even with more mature look his face/nose don't remind me of Superman a whole lot

Cavill has it though:

Neither do Routh or Cavill or Cain.

Reeve should not be the model, but if he is then JHN is the only one who comes close.

Cavill, Reeve, and Routh all have a familiar face to Superman to me.

"familiar" is subjective. If you base it on Reeve - JHN has the best face IMO based on that.

Its not the face as much as the overall look and acting. None come close to that as to Reeve IMO.

Cavill has it though:

He loks great for 36. he is older than cavil but looks younger.

Not a hit but the Welling trashing gets old. He gave us the longest running Superman series ever.

Was he perfect? No way - he was never into the character, IMO, at all. Certainly no way like Amell is into Arrow.

I'm not trashing him. However he didn't even play Superman. He played Clark Kent character, and never even would wear the full suit at end. Also Welling most definitely looks older than Cavill.

He did play Superman, Superman is more than just a costume and if you mean technically he didn't, he still did CGI costume or not there were shots of him with a CGI cape flapping behind him in the Finale. It does count no matter what people say, not saying anyone has to like it mind.

Anyway Henry Cavill...

He didn't play SUPERMAN for the full run of series even if you feel that cgi cartoon counted though. Let's be honest, it was before he became Superman that was the structure of series.

He did though, he played the parts that make him Superman. I'm not saying he was Superman in terms of he wore the costume and that. But he sure as hell embodied Superman from episode 1 until the end. Saving people, disguising who he was, even wearing the S on his chest in the final few seasons before becoming Superman in the finale (CGI Cartoon or not it counts). Superman is more than just a costume, its about putting others before yourself, saving people, doing the right thing. Clark did that on Smallville.

No way he looks older - show me a current comparison phot.

That is not the issue. Welling played Calrk/Superman. Do I wish he'd been into the character more. You bet. Rumors are the CW wanted to do a Metropolis series to follow Smallville. And Welling nixed it. I am not an apologist for him in any way. I only wish he had the love of "his" character Ammell does of Arrow.i

I would doubt that they were intending on a Metropolis series and Welling nixed it. They had to pay him a ton of money just to do season 10 and the new film was on the horizon so WBs wouldn't have greenlit it.

Indeed but Smallville was a different ball game, once he donned the costume that was it for the show. I also think they would not be able to use Metropolis as a title because of the film. I remember alot of speculation back in the day and people wanting a Superman show called Metropolis but I don't remember anything been rumoured from the POV of WBs or the studio.

Its all rumor but personally I'd prefer a weekly Superman series to maybe once in 3 or 4 ears getting Superman on film. Just me. This silly rule Superman can't appear on TV, ist seems, is ridiculous. I get batman - WB wants to not dilute the franchise but Supes - he ain't up there among the top franchises.

I agree, I'd love a 22 episode series of Superman over a few films every 3 or 4 years but I don't think I'd trade what we're getting right now for it. Especially as we have so much good superhero stuff on TV right now. One things for sure though Superman will return to TV to star in a series of his own again at some-point. I'd say its inevitable but it might be some years off yet.

Tbh you say they don't want to dilute the Bat franchise but they already are for me, to many Batman animated projects focus on Batman, there's Gotham on TV, more movies coming. I worry they're gonna oversaturate him.

Step back and give him a prop. Heck, step back and give JHN and GC props.

All of them added to the franchise - each in their own way.
