Best ever Superman?

#1 Posted by Barry Flash (1573 posts) - - Show Bio

Who in you're Opinion was or still is the best ever Superman, out of the old back in the day T.V Shows or Movies.

Or even Tom Welling from Smallville.

I think Brandon Routh from Superman Returns. Even though he has only done one Movie, i really like Him.

Either him or Christopher Reeve.

Smallville is one of the only two shows that I actually watch, and I'm a fan of Tom Welling as Clark. But, that's not really Superman, the best Superman was Christopher Reeve.

Tom Welling is a good Clark Kent but I can't see him as Superman

Brandon Routh. Tom Welling is second. Christopher Reeve wasn't that bad, IMO.

Did you watch the old Superman movies.Reeves is a horrible actor."

Even if he wasn't a good actor, he was a good Superman.

Erm, what does race have to do with being Superman? It was the 70s, acting back then was so corny and cheesy. It makes me laugh too.

Besides, Mohammed Ali was the Black Superman!!

I haven't liked ANY of the portrayls of Superman in any movie or TV show except for Geroge Newbern, who did the voice of Supes in the Justice League cartoon!!!

christopher reeves MADE the character in terms of live action film. however if we talk series, i thought dean caine played a good superman and tom welling was good in smallville. brandon routh was closest thing to reeves so he was prety good.

I know what you mean, but the difference is, i have give Tom Welling a chance for Seven Seasons and still He doesn't shout Superman for me, just a guy with similar Powers. I mean, obviously it is Superman and supposed to be Superman but still...

Daniel Craig has made one Movie as Bond and i was amazed and liked him the best straight away.

but he's playing Clark not Superman. The closest we got to Superman was Kal-El, First Episode of season 4 Smallville. When he flew up and got to the plane. That we a bit. I also like him in Transference, where he played Lionel. That made me think he can be Clark and Superman.

I still think Brandon Routh, from one Movie i was just amazed by His Performance!

whatever, none of you know what your talking about.

DEAN CAIN WAS THE BEST SUPERMAN EVER!

I know. But still i don't think Tom Welling has the potential to be a better Superman than the others.

Do you mean if Brandon Routh wasn't to carry on playing Superman in further Movies, you would pick Tom?
