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.

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
