IESB is reporting that Tom Welling is out of the running to play Superman in the Justice League movie:
But, I’ve got some further info to share. I was waiting to get final verification this week before I broke the bad news and I’ve gotten it. I really wanted my readers to hear it from me…Tom Welling is completely out of the running for Superman.
We first heard this from the same source that first confirmed him to us, I then confirmed it with 3 other studio sources. I am asking for an explanation but they have not been able to give me one quite yet.
Does this mean that Routh is a shoo-in? They aren’t sure, and frankly I hope he isn’t. I mean, other than the fact that Routh kind of looked like Reeve he really had no redeeming qualities in the last Superman movie.
