Brandon Routh got the award of "Best Superhero" for his superman role is Superman return in 2006. However, the superman image he presented to the public is quite different comparing to the old superman style. He appears to be too young and not strong enough in some people's opinion. Lots of people thinks that the film Superman return spent most of money on the screen effects, and the stunning digital effects are kind of wasted for a weak superman as Brandon. However, the overall responds to the film is still positive.
