Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I think Brandon did just fine and Bryan did nothing but praise his performance and support him. The script just happened to be written without Superman having much to say. I seriously doubt it had anything to do with Singer not wanting him to act. That seems like something a disgruntled Returns fan would say to be honest.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

To be fair, Routh kind of seem unexpressive in his other roles too.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

He was terrific in "Zach and Miri" same with his role in "Chuck" and fantastic as Todd Ingram in "Scott Pilgrim".

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I was really hoping they could get Brandon on Smallville as Eradicator or Mon-El.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Me too. I think he'd be awesome as Mon-El. I think Eradicator would have been too hard for them to Smallvilleize.

Eradicator can't just be a normal-looking guy who can be defeated by one punch?

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Routh was fine in SR and he could easily do whatever Snyder's looking for - no version of Superman is ever going to be Hamlet, sorry (and, BTW, no version of Batman ever has been, either ). The reason for not using him would simply be that Snyder has no reason to connect this film with the previous one, and that said there must be dozens of actors who can do the part.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I think Routh was ok...but he needed a better Lois Lane...like switch Kate B with Parker P and there is your movie...Parker Posey would have been a great Lois...Kate seem to be a little girl trying to fill mommy's shoes...she just doesn't work...she would have beed great as a Lex fem lackey but Parker is awesome and was waisted in a minor role. IMHO.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I think Parker read for Lois if I'm not mistaken. Kate was okay but I just didn't buy her as the Margot version of Lois which she was meant to be, she was too young for the part basically and it shows in her performance. She had some nice moments with both Richard, Jason, and Superman but she was too tentative and not representative of the feisty Lois most people are familiar with.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I dunno...I have a different take on Lois-Clark & Superman and it won't be popular with people because it makes Clark a "Straight man" & Superman more fun & light and flamboyant...and Lois is more interested in Clark because he is so cold and focused and odd man out. Where Superman is so beloved by people it makes Lois sick. Forget I said anything.

I mean she is interested in Supes at first but kind of gets bored with all the hype and see's Clark's cynical view on the hero even though he is covering himself.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I'm tired of the Lois is in love with Superman first but learns to love Clark also. This is one of the aspects of the Donner Verse movies that bugged me the most!! I have had this conversation with JacksonArcher on a number of occasions how I think Superman is actually three different people. I believe wholeheartedly that Lois should be in love with Clark but her attraction stems from being attracted to Superman. I think "Lois and Clark" handled this particularly well as did the comics.
