Elseworlds | Will Smith as SUPERMAN

Will Smith

The return of Superman on the big screen years after Christopher Reeves portrayal would be a very different film.  It would probably be less a Donner love letter but a film for a more modern time.  It would be a very interesting film if it got made.  However, Smith turned down the role which later filled in by Brandon Routh a splitting image of the late Christopher Reeves.  

Here's what Will Smith said at that time: “The last Superman I got offered, the script came, and I was like, ‘There is no way I’m playing Superman!’ 

“Because I had already done Jim West ( Wild Wild West ) and you can’t be messing up white peoples’ heroes in Hollywood. You mess up white peoples’ heroes in Hollywood, you’ll never work in this town again!”
