You beat me to it.
I bet you think you made the point you THOUGHT you were making, didn't you?
See, let me educate you a little on where you went wrong: Does my sig contain the names Tom or Welling ANYWHERE in it? Doesn't, does it? I believe it says NO ONE, meaning there are numerous other actors who I might feel is better suited for the role. The "poll" says TW or BR. After seeing BR play a decent SuperBOY, the choice is obvious.
And it looks like weak minds think alike, eh Hal?
i freaking clicked the wrong name.
take one away from welling and add one to routh.
the poll should now read: Tom Welling - 35, Brandon Routh - 77
Brandon Routh, because of his portrayal of both Superman and Clark Kent, the acting choices he made were solid - And whoever wants to claim that Brandon wasn't acting because he only had so and so many lines is, well, not familiar with what acting entails.
Brandon Routh hands down. Unlike Welling, who has the emotional range of a cinder block, Routh can carry me through a Superman experience without vomiting. This is something Smallville has never been able to do. That, and Routh SOUNDS like Superman. I don't mind that some people keep saying Routh looks like Superboy. That's fine by me. Welling, however, seems more to me like Supergirl.
It's a good thing then that Supergirl is bigger, stronger and could pimp slap Superman right in his mouth without Superman being able to do a thing about it.
I almost feel dirty resorting to this level of reply -- almost.
I dont really see how anyone would be able to comapare the two. Both of them basically play different charecters to a certain degree even though the charecters are the same guy. Not to mention that we have 5+ years of seeing Tom as Teenaged Clark Kent and 2hours of Routh playing Clark and Superman, and that he barely spoke but when he did I feel like he was good for the role.
Please elaborate. Your point is out in the woods. Go get it.
Never argue with an idiot;
He'll drag you down to his level and beat you by experience
What i would really like to know is why some around here feel that Brandon wasn't acting because he didn't have many lines of dialogue in the movie. Could you guys explain why you think he needs lines to act? Btw, I like Tom Welling in Smallville no doubts - Hell, I can't wait for the next season - what i don't get is the whole "actor must speak to act" part of the anti-Brandon rhetoric. Help me out will ya?
actually..acting come from being believable..he showed alot of emotion in his face..that is acting.. some people seem to think its an easy job..acting.. half of you moaning about Brandon or welling couldn't do a better job.
That wasnt the tagline for the season. That was a stupid line of text that got put on a promo sheet for one episode. Was it dumb? Yes. Was it shown on the network or created by or erndorsed by the show? No. It's the work of some dunce in the promo department trying to be cute...
I dont see that rule in my "Message Board Posting for Dummies" hanbook?
Seriously, who would win in a five round boxing match.
I would pay to see that.
Blah. I'd rather see two hot girls duke it out in the ring than these 2.
Dean Cain claimed he would own both of them in a barfight though...I wonder what hes on.
I don't know. He was a college football player, so he is probably a tough guy.
True. Its really hard to say who would win. After watching guys like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan take down dudes twice their size, I think it comes down to training.
Ya, I think Cain could take them.
The question is, who's Superman would win in a fight? Cain or Brandon?
Its like Earth 1 Superman fighting postcrisis Superman.
I think Brandon's Superman is more powerful but it would still go the distance.
Wow, great picture.
That was a painting done by artist Carlo Pagulayan who has worked for Dark Horse, Marvel and has also done Superman for DC. Here's another he's done of Tom as Superman.
And of course the ones done by Alex Ross:
This one I like too, it's a manip based on The Return to Krypton story arc:
And a cool new one:
I love them both. I can't pick one over the other.
I think Tom does great as a young (and very confused) Clark Kent. I am a bit tired of his portrayl being labeled as "The Big Dumb Alien" though (the fault of the writers, not Tom).
I loved Routh as Superman. I thought he was terrific, especially his facial expressions. I did want more lines, however, and I'm hoping the next movie will bring out even more.
I wouldn't want Routh playing Smallville's Clark any more than I'd want Welling playing Superman.
