December 22, 2006: Brandon Routh Talks “Superman Returns” Videogame to Movie Comparison

Yahoo Videogames has published an interview with Brandon Routh in which he discusses the differences between creating his role as Superman for the movie compared to playing the same role for the EA Games videogame. Here's a portion of the interview...

    "It's pretty cool because it is so lifelike," said Routh. "It's a little shocking, because the toys aren't as strange. The game looks a lot more like me than the toys. There's a really good resemblance and it's in high definition on Xbox 360. Plus, that's really my voice talking. It's a bit strange playing the game as myself. But it's a lot of fun. I got to do things as Superman in the videogame that I didn't get to do in the film. That was exciting."

    Routh admitted that working on the game with EA was a much easier process than playing the physical role of Superman during the long, grueling shoot in Australia.

    "It's much easier to fly in the game," joked Routh. "Your thumbs might hurt after a while, but that's nothing compared to your whole body aching after hanging in a harness for hours on the set."
