The other day we told you how Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder were gearing up to look at hundreds of potential actors for the role of Clark Kent/Superman in the next Man of Steel movie, which is set to begin production this June. There's somewhat of an accelerated pace on this project because they have to be in production on a new Superman movie by a certain date or else Warner Bros. may have to forfeit the rights, which means we're probably going to have a steady dose of Superman stories over the next few weeks.
Superman, Zack Snyder, Matthew Goode
TOM WELLING TOM WELLING TOM WELLING TOM WELLING
They need keep Brandon Routh.
The first movie was a bust because they casted him as superman
That is such horse hockey. Brandon Routh was the one thing the critics raved about due to his uncanny resemblance to Chris Reeve. The movie tanked due to poor marketing. They released it a week before Pirates of the Caribbean, and it got crushed. Check your facts before you post.
tom weling is an awful tv actor on an awful show that should have been off the air long ago The writers of Smallville are so uncreative that they have to keep pretending everything began in Smallville or Metropolis. At least move him around the planet and let him find these heroes Show is stupid.
Only reason it is on is because there is no other superhero show and it's the wb. And I hate the idiotic theme song, with apologies to idiots.
How about Tom Welling for no more
@ronleach2-your a lame *** person..get off your computer and go play in traffic..I bet your the person who watched superman returns and gotta hardon for it huh? Leave Tom Welling fudgepacker
Goode is good, but Tom Welling would be great and more importantly the script needs to be GREAT! Unlike the last movie where Superman didn't throw one single punch, nor were there any new villains... I would also accept Brandon Routh coming back because he was good it was just the script that sucked. We want to see Doomsday or Darkseid!
Roth HAD HIS CHANCE GIVE WELLINGS A TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOOOOOOOOO TOM WELLINGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any one who said Routh I just can't agree.... I like the guy but he is just no superman and those who say he the only one who can be superman on the big screen and its not his fault the last movie didn't do well COME ON his acting was okay but the first thing we did watching that movie was compare him to the late Chris Reeves and if you go by those standards alone you choose Tom welling sounds weird but maybe some of these so called superman fan need to go back and revisits his movies and see how awkward he was when he went back to Smallville and how who he became as a super hero was because of smallville just like if you were to start a new superman fanchise with Tom welling
you suck at writing
I know, right? Talk about run-on sentence. Try de-caf! LOL!
We've been watching Tom Welling for 10 years! Why on earth would Warner Bros want to change it now because it's a feature motion picture? That is so stupid. Hollywood and it's politics.
OMGm please the only choice is TOM WELLING
i think tom welling is to young and mostly associated as a teen idol, if their doing a reboot and snyder and nolans names are thrown into the hat i think an older and grittier looking superman should be picked i liked someones suggestion of True Blood's Joe Maganiello hes got the look and the build Routh is also pretty good but is better at playing clark kent then he is superman
I can't argue with this at all. You make a very valid point. I'm just so used to watching Tom I can't see anyone right now.
Tom welling is about 30...
Give me Tom Welling!!! Tom is Superman!!!
Tom Welling is a good TV actor. If he could translate that to a movie that will be fantastic (although I guess Absolute Justice could be considered a movie). But if he is in, the whole Smallville cast, pleassssssse! :) Long live the Red-Blue Blur \S/
Either Routh or Welling. Routh was a perfect Superman and Welling really matured into the role throughout the last ten years. Matthew Goode would be a terrible Clark Kent.
To be perfectly honest, the Superman movies almost bore me to tears. Lex Luthor is always the main villain and he is boring enough. Having yet another man play Superman is not good. I always hoped Tom Welling would play in a Superman movie. I don't like the choice they are looking to play Superman with that guy from Watchmen.
I hope this next "Man of Steel" has enough interesting moments, otherwise I am not stoked on seeing it.
Routh had the looks, but his acting is still weak. Welling has more charisma. So I'll be happy with Routh(w/improved acting skills) or Welling as is.
I rather see Routh again, than Goode.
I think that after 10 years experience Tom Welling would be the best choice. He has lived this part for a long time and done a very good job at it
My vote is for Brandon Routh ,he looked the part and was very credible,what we need is a new nemesis,,we have 5 superman movies and 4 of them involve Lex Luthor,,.. no real powers....superman has many enemies....with powers equal to his own....lets give his a real challenge doomsday brainiac bizarro.....and we keep on going to Lex...go read some comics and find a real bad guy
