Brandon Routh's SUPERMAN: FLYBY Screen Test

Before Brandon Routh became Superman/Clark Kent in Bryan Singer's 2006 film Superman Returns he auditioned for the very same role in 2004 for McG's never-made Superman: Flyby. Come see Brandon Routh wearing the Superman: Flyby costume.


In December of 2013, the website thinkmcflythink.com posted an image of Henry Cavill ("Man Of Steel," "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") wearing McG's Superman: Flyby costume for his screen test. You can view that by clicking here. Oddly enough, a week later thinkmcflythink.com posted an image of Brandon Routh dressed in the Superman: Flyby costume as well, but that image didn't get picked up on by as many sites as the Cavill image. I missed it, but here it is now. Enjoy! By the way, several months after Routh tested for Superman: Flyby he would test for Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, and of course get the part.

SUPERMAN:FLYBY Plot  (written by J.J. Abrams) - Young PRINCE KAL-EL is rocketed to Earth in an effort for Jor-El to allow Kal-El to fufill the prophecy of being the chosen Kryptonian to end a century old Civil War.

When he arrives to Earth he discovers his Cousin has become SUPERMAN Earth's greatest protector and the two engage in a battle for the Earth it self. - CBM's Robert Garlen
