At Least it Ain't Underdog

Superman has remained one of the most iconic comic book characters for decades. The number of iterations of the character to appear onscreen is astounding.


The Man of Steele has been played by Kirk Alyn, George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Ron Ely, Dean Cain (objectively the worst Superman), Tom Wellington, Brandon Routh, Henry Cavill, and numerous others. The character won't go away, so there is no surprise that a brand new iteration is heading to the big screen (or, more likely streaming, given the "new normal"). 


 is reporting that Ta Nehisi Coates is writing and J.J. Abrams is producing  a new filmic version of everybody's favorite yellow sun powered boy scout. This news comes as as The CW premieres it's new show, Superman and Lois .

That take deals with Clark Kent being fired from his journalism gig, and the couple moving to Smallville.

 That version is getting solid reviews so far.

What do you think? Do we have enough versions of Superman, or can the world always you more saving?
