    All of this casting talk is interesting to follow; just the same I think the person they will ultimately end up casting for the role will be someone completely out of left field who a) has never been heard of or b) has not been mentioned or considered by any of us.

    Probably in the case of Routh, and how fast SR has been fading from the the general audience I could imagine...Guy 1: "Is that the same guy from the Returns movie a few years back?" Guy 2: "Uhh, I don't know, he looks kind of like him. Give me some popcorn, I bought the tickets fool!"

    The truth is I wouldn't mind having Brandon Routh back. Hopefully by the time the next Superman film comes out people will have forgotten all about SR.

    I'd say most people already have forgotten about SR. Except us, of course.

    Not necessarily. It's on cable fairly regularly, at least in the states.

    As long as it it not Routh, I will be happy. Routh being cast just seems to be WB rushing anything into the theaters to make money, that would be all.

    I'm not sure why casting Routh would mean WB is rushing. That really makes no sense.

    if this wachowski rumor is true, then brandon might be replaced. he looks more like superman now then he did 3 years ago. he really deserves a better shot at playing superman.

    If this is a studio driven project I expect Routh to return.

    Both Tim Burton Batman movies still pop up alot as well, yet they have been eradicated in the minds of the general audience as far as what is going on with the franchise.

    no to ROUTH! Reboots dont use rehashed actors

    requirements at least 6'2 25-35 years old

    i dont care what anyone things but THomas Jane would have made a hellva Superman!

    its a rough mock but screw it

    I was just wondering; the way you defend Cavill, the passion and words you use well, you sounds like his mom or his wife. No offense, just my own perception as the very observant girl that I am.:cwink:



    Maybe very slight, which does not bother me at all since I think Peter is hot, especially when he was younger.

    Well, if that's not the biggest case of the pot calling the kettle black I've seen on these boards.

    Switch out Cavill with Routh and you just described yourself.
