Meanwhile, ContactMusic.com have this quote from Brandon Routh about troubles he had with the costume and his build...

    New SUPERMAN actor BRANDON ROUTH worked out so hard for his role in the superhero film, he almost ruined his famous costume. Routh was desperate to match the Man of Steel's comic book physique and spent hours in the gym ahead of filming. But the 26-year-old's newly bulging muscles infuriated costume designers, who were constantly forced to patch up his skin-tight blue and red suit as it tore against the strain of his biceps. He recalls, "While I was doing a lot of weightlifting to get fit for the role, I was starting to get really muscled. That made the suit a lot tighter and a few times I would burst the seams. "So I just eased off the workouts but I was pretty proud of getting myself in good shape because when I first tested the suit I didn't have the kind of build I wanted."
