I'm the type of person who watches movies for the sake of movies. I don't care how "great" the actor truly was or how in depth the characters are. Is it a good movie? Was I bored? Was the actor hot or not? I'm the type of person who thought Avatar was spectacular and didn't care that it was Pocahontas on steroids! It was awesome!!! And Sammy is adorable, especially in blue!
Hubby and I got to talking tonight about Marvel and their choice of actors to portray the characters in their comics. With all the Marvel movies that have come out over the past few years, there is much material to discuss. I thought I'd come on in here and voice an opinion that may not be very popular. Today's topic is Alter Egos. Or better yet, Ed Norton vs Brandon Routh.
But I'm sorry. No one holds a flame to Brandon Routh as Clark Kent. I'm not saying that Brandon played a good Superman. But what I am definitely saying is that Brandon did the absolute greatest job of playing Clark Kent and the only actor who did it better was the absolute greatest, Christopher Reeve. What I am saying is that although Ed Norton played a great Bruce Banner, he pales in comparison to Brandon Routh as Clark Kent. Think hard about it before you answer. I'm not comparing the Hulk, a mostly computer generated character to the very hot Superman. I'm simply comparing their alter egos only.
You know I'm right. Brandon Routh is HOT!!!
So, what do you think? If you had to compare Ed Norton as Bruce Banner vs Brandon Routh (who will NOT be in the next Superman movie) as Clark Kent, who would you choose? Go watch the movies again and let me know!!!!
