During WonderCon 2016, former Superman actor Brandon Routh discussed his view on the newest and darkest Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, particularly on Henry Cavill's version.
The Superman Returns lead, who currently portrays Atom on The CW's Legends Of Tomorrow, has yet to see Dawn Of Justice, but still gave his two cents:
"For me, Superman is always based out of Christopher Reeve's Superman. The charming, positive quality about Superman, the uplifting quality that allows us to see the better side of our own humanity, and see that reflected; the greatness that we all have within us. That's the part of Superman that I like to see most.
"But you know, everybody has multiple sides to their character; we're not always the same every day. So it's interesting to see that in our superheroes as well, I suppose."
You can catch Routh on Legends Of Tomorrow as the happy-go-lucky Atom on The CW.
