There are other Supermans?
Some people may be shocked, but Henry Cavill is not the only Superman. There have been many that have played that role. Henry Cavill has been trending lately after dropping a bomb that he was told by James Gunn that they did not want him to return as Superman. I am amazed at how much moving and shaking on the planet there is any time something happens to him. But, much like Keanu, we all love Henry.
People that know me well would know that I am a huge nerd and I love wargames and board games. Turns out so does Henry Cavill who is going from Witcher and Superman to now supposedly rumored to be doing a Warhammer show on Amazon. This has turned the gaming world upside down! But that’s another story, we’re talking about Superman.
“Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman!“
According to History.com, Superman was originally created by Jerry Siegel and his friend Joe Shuster published their 13-page Superman story in Action Comics #1 published in June of 1938. Action Comics #1 is considered one of the most valuable comics of all time. One sold at auction for 3.18 million dollars. It was in the number one slot till the first appearance of Spider-Man sold for 3.6 million.
Superman’s popularity was like a rocket. Superman propelled into success along with the idea of superheroes in general. Soon after every publisher wanted a superhero. Radio jumped with the Adventures of Superman radio show (1940-1951) starring Bud Coyer as the voice of Supes.
Even with that success it still took nearly a decade before we would see the man of steel on the big screen. Here are some of the marvelous actors that played Superman, that are not Henry Cavill per denofgeek.com.
