Come this October, Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin will play Superman in a guest spot on Supergirl. In doing so, he will join the long line of actors who have donned the red cape of the Kryptonian hero on the small and silver screens.
An even longer list, though, consists of all those actors who were considered for the role at one time or another but did not eventually nail the part. For instance, current incumbent of the role Henry Cavill first auditioned for Clark Kent for 2006’s Superman Returns but lost out to Brandon Routh. And when Cavill was later cast in 2013’s Man of Steel, he beat other frontrunner Matthew Goode (Ozymandias in Watchmen) to the part.
However, this is just the tip of the iceberg (or should that be Fortress of Solitude?). Read on for 11 other actors that you probably weren’t aware nearly played the Man of Steel. »
