Routh acts like a better Clark. Cavill is a better build and a better Superman.

  • Reeve portrayed Superman.
  • Routh portrayed Reeve who portrayed Superman.
  • Cavil didn't portray anyone - he WAS Superman.

Cavill

He has the build for it and I think his costume is better.

It must be because I'm old but how your choice can be anything but Reeves is beyond me. He personified the character for me.

Reeves, Cavill and Welling ALL dead ringers for Superman. I didn't like Routh at all, seemed more like Superboy rather then Superman to me.

#15 Edited by DeathpooltheT1000 (11468 posts) - - Show Bio

He was Superman

#16 Posted by deaditegonzo (3686 posts) - - Show Bio

My heart will always say Reeves, but my mind says Cavhill. He works for this more dramatic Superman.

Routh, cause I'm Hipster B)

this, times a billion

If they ever do a JL movie based on COIE, I would have like to seen a Christopher Reeve type Superman, older and wiser as Earth 2 Superman.

Cavil, I like Routh but come on he was basically playing Reeve redux which is so unfortunate.

Reeves and Tom Welling and the exact fictional description of Supermans physical characteristics.

#24 Posted by Alak (928 posts) - - Show Bio

Reeve had the better head. Cavill had the better body.

They're all big, tall, white with straight jaws and dark hair.

Nit pick if you want, but they all look similar.

Don't know if anyone else feels the same way but IMO now that I look at their faces, Henry kind of looks like a combination of Reeve and Welling, his face has cues from both of them especially when Henry has his hair all over the place.

They're all big, tall, white with straight jaws and dark hair.

Nit pick if you want, but they all look similar.

Agreed, they all have those perfect jawlines lol and darker hair.

#34 Edited by deaditegonzo (3686 posts) - - Show Bio

Welling was a terrible Superman. Its like if Superman got his start in a boy band. The tween girl version of Superman, if you will.

#35 Edited by Captain13 (3408 posts) - - Show Bio

Welling

Tim Daly has the voice though.

#36 Posted by CuddleBear (1242 posts) - - Show Bio

christopher reeves... at least the batman guys don't have some defining person to compete with everytime a new one is cast. no one will ever live up to reeves. routh and cavill do a good enough job the best you can hope for

#37 Posted by DeathpooltheT1000 (11468 posts) - - Show Bio

Welling never played Superman, he only played Clark Kent and Clark Kent with a dumb costume with an S.

#38 Posted by Bruxae (14004 posts) - - Show Bio

Tbh none of them really LOOK like Superman, but id say Welling feels the most like Clark Kent, Reeve was probably the closest to superman.

#39 Edited by SupremeHyperion (1536 posts) - - Show Bio

Since I grew up with Reeves I always thought he was what superman was supposed to look like, but as I allow myself to move away from my childhood bias I think that cavill is the closest to what superman should look like.

#40 Posted by GunGunW (997 posts) - - Show Bio

Reeve had the most iconic Superman look, and played him the best, but Cavill's muscularity and voice were the best.

#41 Posted by Saint_Wildcard (11428 posts) - - Show Bio

Love or hate the movie, this is the best first flight done on the big screen.

#42 Edited by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deaditegonzo: What are you talking about? lol Welling was a great Superman/Clark probably the best Clark Kent overall, and far better Supes then Routh who was dull, plain and had no personality as Superman...

Deadpool, well at the end he FINALLY became Superman very similar in some ways to Reeves with the "smiling,hope etc" even Reeve said when he worked with him before he died about Welling "This is the next Superman" I hope WB picks him as an older Superman in a movie sometime, maybe an alternate Superman even.

Henry Cavill with Christopher Reeve's 6'4'' height would probably make the Perfect Superman.

And to think that Batfleck is 6'4, add ears and boots thats like 5-8 inches taller than Superman.

Indeed... it would look real strange to have Batman towering over Superman like that.

Afflect is that tall?

#49 Posted by King Saturn (224462 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, dude is easily 6'3'' - 6'4''... Cavill is more like 6'0'' - 6'1''

#50 Edited by deaditegonzo (3686 posts) - - Show Bio

@vaeternus: I take it you dont actually like Superman? Because the creators of the show were ashamed of Superman (No tights, no flights), it was more Soap Opera than superhero program, and Welling was a whiny, emo Superman who looks nothing like Supes physically.
