Superman reboot should keep Brandon Routh
It probably won’t happen – but I hope the Superman reboot being overseen by Christopher Nolan chooses to keep Brandon Routh. I’ll admit, I’m more of a fan of “Superman Returns” than most people, but I think even those who see the film as flawed would have to admit that Routh has the Superman look down.
Things that might work against Routh are his age and his previous experience in the role. If the new “Superman” movie producers want to separate themselves from “Returns,” they will likely bring in a new star. And Routh, while only 30, is two years older than Christopher Reeve was for the release of “Superman II.” But a reboot with Routh still has plenty of time for multiple sequels if successful. I don’t hear anyone clamoring for the removal of Christian Bale, 36, from the Batman franchise. And 33-year-old Ryan Reynolds is just getting started as Green Lantern. So a 30-year-old Routh would fit right in with his Justice League buddies.
Do you think Routh should return in the role? Vote below, and feel free to share your casting ideas in the comments.
