Brandon Routh Reflects On His Time As Superman

Superman returns


"Man of Steel" isn't the first Superman film of the new millennium despite how it seems based on the media storm currently engulfing the film. A little film called "Superman Returns" hit theaters in 2006, made $391M at the box office, scored a 76% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes (only 2% lower than "Iron Man 3") and was then... deemed a failure? That's pretty much what happened, according to Brandon Routh in a new interview with MTV Geek.

"After the movie came out, yeah. It was well reviewed and well-liked, and about a year after it, they started to be down on it... It is unfortunate that people have to preface things with, 'I don't care what anyone else says, but I like the movie.'" They should just be able to be proud and happy that they liked 'Superman Returns.'"

The interview is a great read, complete with Routh's thoughts on new Superman Henry Cavill and "Superman Returns'" legacy. Head on over to MTV Geek for the complete interview!
