I'd take either of the guys who played Superboy in the 1980s over Routh.
Agreed. In fact, I heard that Gerard Christopher had actually be cast as Superman in Lois & Clark
until the producers discovered that he had done Superboy
, and they hired Cain instead. Dean Cain grew on me, so I'm glad that it happened the way it did, but, yeah, either Newton or Chirstopher would have been better for Superman Returns.
