After an almost two-decade hiatus, Routh brought "Clark Kent/Superman" back to the big screen in 2006 in a film aptly entitled Superman Returns.
With Marlon Brando reprising his original role as "Jor-El," Kevin Spacey as "Lex Luthor," and Kate Bosworth as "Lois Lane," the massively budgeted film ($209 million) thrived at the box office with over $391 million worldwide.
Routh wasn't selected to play Superman in the upcoming reboot, Man of Steel, but helped prove that Superman is still a character that resonates well with moviegoers.
