Well he is. Because he was given a far more endearing superman than cavill's. The latter never got a chance to show any charm in 2 damn movies. It's not Henrys fault but they write his superman as Waaay too stoic.

I hope his personality in Justice League changes.

??? I can't. I literally can't. He was a blank page, deliberately made to project our SuperGod into him. He's not a real character. Or maybe he is, a creeper and a stalker, that's what his character was writen as.

Wuuuuut. You're taking about Man of Steel right? Blank page. Lmao. I know returns was kinda dull but the blind hate for every element of it is absurd.

Routh talking to the plane passengers >>>> whatever Cavill said to the public in Man of Steel.

That's the superman that makes me want to read his comics and watch more stuff of his. Not the mute ken doll that Cavill has been. His Clark is a different story. They gave him more to do in BvS. But his superman is just whatever.

Sure was endearing when he was stalking Lois, watching her every move and then breaking into the kids room at night.

There were elements of a great Superman in Routh's version but was ultimately let down by some terrible decision making in the written direction. And what's funny is in Routh's best scenes he had no lines. They were literally him lifting things. The plane, the ship, the car, the kryptonite island, the shuttle, the DP globe. Not to say he's a bad actor but he wasn't given anything to decent to say. It ranged from average dialogue to awful ("I'm still Superman!").

And talking to the plane passengers was literally word for word what Reeve Superman said to Lois and basically the gist of what he said to some people in Superman IV but about the subway system.

Man I'm so on the opposite of y'all with this. Are you guys satisfied with this superman so far? Aside from the look he's been bland as cardboard in the suit.

This character is supposed to be at the forefront of the Justice League. Dude should be dcs biggest character but he's fallen behind for so long. And snyder's characterization isn't helping the matter

And yeah that plane scene was a direct Donner homage. But it worked. These movies could have done with a little of that. It's kind of hard to root for the guy even though you're supposed to. I don't like many mcu movies but even they get the basic likeability of everybody down well.

Lol we can do this all day guys. Let's not act like man of Steel had a flawless superman characterization either.

Nah, I'm not arguing that. I'm just saying Routhman was nothing to brag about either.

Cavill and Routh are and were both underutilized. In terms of raw potential for the character, I'd give it Cavill. Right now he's like the Timothy Dalton of this Superman game.

Not at all. He really misses the charm and elegance of classic Superman. But Routh was almost parody.

Honestly I'd take the Reeves pastiche over what we've been getting. Given the same movies but with a personality swap I think audiences would respond better to it to some extent.

Snyder just seems really against nostalgia and that's cool. I can vibe with a lot of his ideas for these characters tbh. But the personality he's given superman is just a big failure (not Clark brehs. Superman specifically). Dude's likely gunning for worst justice League member if ezra and fisher pan out.

I'm hoping what Cavill has been saying about Superman in JL is true. I have no reason to doubt him. As I recall he was pretty open about Superman not quite being Superman yet for BvS.

I wonder if I'm the only one in this thread who kinda likes returns lol. I'd rate it like a 6 or 7.

One of the best looking comic movies on a cinematography standpoint. Good superman/clark and lex. But really long pacing and it really needed like one action scene where he had a physical opponent tbh.

His rescue scenes were so good though. They need to throw one of those cavill's way. Not just in a montage either.

Edit: personally I found new 52 animated superman trash. Reeves and the animated series superman is GOAT for me. Looking forward to rebirth too.

Routh's Supes following the canon of Reeve's Supes makes him come off as a dick. It's confirmed Returns takes place after the first two movies, right? So basically either Supes knocked Lois up without her knowing his identity or during the one night she did before her memories got erased, he knocked her up and then skipped town.

He didn't know he knocked her up. Dude bounced when he heard about the remains of krypton being found in space. When he comes back and sees lois has a kid hes pretty shocked by it.

Poor cyclops tho. Dude was unknowingly parenting a superson.

I think it's as simple as a recent policy shift. DC Movies (or rather, WB Film) doesn't get that kind of license anymore.

While I think is a very good filmed movie I cant help but think it looks boring for the type of movie it is, like you can imagine Bud White and Edmund Exley are somewhere there in some bar investigating some murder.

There is some incredible shots that I will never forget about that movie and is when he was descending into the fortress you can only see his siloutte descending, really love that imagery, or when he is listening in space.

Haha nah man thats what I like so much about it. It's like the gotham tv show where it's so anachronistic with the time period. It's obviously set in modern times but some of the architecture and clothing is straight out of a 50s movie.

Of course not, the 3D version is the latest thing done in a movie, because they need to allocate the budget in the right places/effects that are only in place in the final cut.

Brandon Routh looks the part but I'll take Cavillman any day. I've never given Routh the proper chance though. Superman Returns came out and I just couldn't bring myself to care about the movie. I think Singer messed up by linking it to the Donner films. I felt like I had to watch those movies to fully appreciate SR and I haven't seen those.

Do you wanna know how i got these scars. Well my brother and i were in a band and he was a mean, mean drunk. One night after being booed off stage I got depressed and he got drunk. Later he stuck a knife in my mouth and said "30 seconds to Mars is a terrible band name"
