RESULTS: Brandon Routh Vs. Tom Welling. Who Should Play Superman?

In one of CBM's biggest ever polls, over 8,700 of you voted for which of these actors you most want to see play Superman in the upcoming reboot from Christopher Nolan! Read on to find out who came out on top as the #1 choice to play the Man of Steel...

A few days ago, I decided to find out once and for all who the most popular choice is between the two names who are always mentioned in any comments section of a Superman related article, Brandon Routh and Tom Welling.

With a majority of over 1,200 votes, it’s clear that he’s the more popular choice, but he’s far from a landslide winner as Superman Return star Brandon Routh also did very well as you can see below.

So there you have it. I highly doubt that this will put an end to the constant debate between fans over which actor is more deserving of the role, especially as the Other option got only 870 Votes (9.99%). Personally, Brandon Routh would be my top choice out of all of the actors I’ve seen suggested over the years but I’d actually be ok if Welling were to take the step from the small screen onto the big one.

Lastly, I’d like to thank you all for voting and commenting on the previous article! If you’d like to contact me about anything, just click on the “Contact Me” option at the top left hand side of the page and you can follow me on Twitter by clicking the image below!
