Brandon Routh, Detective For the Undead

Pretty boy Brandon Routh is that someone best remembered for playing the emo version of the title character in Superman Returns [2006], whose crotch was rumoured to have been digitally-downsized in post-production, supposedly to make the film more family-friendly.

Notice how one of his muscles didn't bulge...?
Anyway, I don't think he has had a starring role since, but sometime in early June, we'll get to see him play another comic book character in a movie called Dylan Dog: Dead of Night [2011], a detective specialising in paranormal cases. Van Helsing [2004] this is not. Check out the trailer, it's pretty funny.

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a horror/comedy movie starring Brandon Routh as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specialising in affairs of the undead. Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.
- Synopsis obtained from Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie had seen release in other parts of the world, and the reviews had not been very flattering to say the least. But as always, I hardly pay attention to sites like the aforementioned Rotten Tomatoes who take themselves way too seriously. Sure, maybe this movie isn't too good, but the trailer and premise sure looks promising enough as a light-hearted comedy with some action thrown in.

Release Date : June 9th, 2011 (Malaysia)
Director : Kevin Munroe
Starring : Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem, Peter Stormare, Taye Diggs

Not necessarily a bad thing, wouldn't you say? Spider-man & Superman weren't that faithful either.

or the Christopher Nolan Batman movies for that matter.
