Superhero Secrets: Brandon Routh

You might not know the name Brandon Routh, but you’ve definitely seen him on your screen. He starred as Clark Kent/Superman in 2006’s Superman Returns and is currently playing The Atom on Arrow – which makes him especially suited to a stint on Superhero Secrets.

It’s not often we chat with someone who got to play a superhero, so we had to ask: what was it like?

“So playing the role of Superman, I had to explore a lot of things, one being: what’s it like to be the most powerful being on Earth?” Brandon said. “What I found in doing all that and playing the character is that we should all be kind of aspiring to be more like Superman in our daily lives. Yes, we may not be able to fly and have X-Ray vision, but we all have the ability to be the best that we can be, to upgrade ourselves in all areas of life and keep doing and that kind of thing.”

Sounds like a real-life Superhero to us!
