In the new DC by James Gunn it seems that he wants to explore the early years of Superman, something that would make it a bit difficult for Henry Cavill to play him given his age.
Who will be the new Superman? That is the question that thousands of fans around the world are asking right now. After the news that James Gunn y Peter Safran they will not have Henry Cavill so that it was the Iron Man of the new age of DCApart from the fury that was unleashed, many began to think about who could be the actor who would play one of the greatest superheroes in history. Although it has also been known that since Warner they spent years trying to get rid of Cavill. But the good of Gunn he knows the legion of fans the actor has and it seems he doesn’t want the actor to go too far.
Gunn I already notice that they want to explore the first years of Clark Kent, someone young who is starting to make their way to becoming a superhero. Because of this, it seems a bit complicated that Cavill could play that role, because despite the fact that he is holding up very well (many of us would like to keep it that way), he is currently 39 years old and it would be a bit difficult to pass off as a youngster. That’s why now everyone is looking at the future young promises of Hollywoodsince everyone believes that there will be someone out there who would be the perfect one Superman. We also made a list of what Gunn would have to take into account about the character in the new era.
Some time ago, His house did a casting of possible candidates, and a few days ago the news broke that Jacob Elordi will be the new Superman, although Gunn had to come out to deny it. We also made a list of what Gunn would need to consider about the character in the new era. But, Is Henry Cavill really “old” to play the Man of Steel? Below we review the modern actors who have played the Last Son of Krypton.
The first Man of Steel in live action cinema and, for many, the one who has best represented the essence of Superman. At the time, the film was the most expensive in history, partly because of the incredible salary that the actor had. Marlon Brandowhich interprets the Jor-El. Reeve was a complete stranger, but due to his physical prowess, his height and good-natured appearance, they made the director see Richar Donnerwho were before the perfect Clark Kent. Reeve played the role at only 26 years old, but due to the success of the film, he donned the red cape another 4 times.
It is possible that many times you forget to Cain when the actors who played the Boy Scout Azul. Cain played the character in the 90’s series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, a series that was successful in the United States at the time, but that today has been somewhat forgotten. The series focuses above all on the relationship of Lois and Clark from the first moment they met, until their marriage. The series premiered in 1993, when Cain was 27 years old.
One of the actors who spent the longest time playing Clark Kent. Many will fondly remember the series. Smallville which premiered in 2001, because for 10 seasons the series was telling the story of Clark Kentfrom his years in the institute of Smallvillewhere much of the story takes place, until he dons the red cape and becomes Superman. From this list, Welling, along with Reeve, has been the youngest actor to play the Man of Steel at 26 years old.
Routh played the superhero in Superman: Returns, kind of a sequel to the second movie of Reeveignoring the parts III y IV (a bit messy yes). The actor may not be the best performer on the list, but his movie was well received by critics, but it didn’t do so well that he Warner Bros. make a sequel. Routh is the only actor to have played two versions of the character, one in his 2006 film, when he was 27 years old, and another in the Arrowverso when he was 40 years old.
With Reeve, the most famous. There are not a few who want to see the British actor playing the role that made him world famous again, although it seems impossible. He played Clark Kent at the age of 30 in the Zack Syneder-directed film Man of Steel.
The last actor to play the superhero. The American actor plays the character in the series HBO Max, Superman & Lois. In the series, Lois and Clark are married with two children, Jonathan and Jordan, the family moves to Smallville and his life is altered by a strange being who seems to have some dark past with the superhero. Like the series of Cainthis one also focuses a lot on the relationship of Lois y Clarkand that of the children.
Despite being the protagonist of his own series, the debut of Hoechlin was earlier, specifically in the series Supergirlwhere the protagonist is Kara Zor-ElKal-El’s cousin. Hoechlin played the Man of Steel in the second season, at the age of 29.
