Be it spandex or type casting, superheroes are a risky film for an actor to take on. Jude Law revealed in an interview with Stephen Colbert that it was the prior that made him turn down the opportunity to star in Bryan Singer’s 2006 superhero move Superman Returns.


He commented: “I’m stood there and then I have this picture of me in that costume on posters all around the world and I was like ‘No way!’ and I unzipped it. I was Superman for two minutes. That’s enough”. The role eventually went to Brandon Routh, who did not reprise his role leaving British actor Henry Cavill to pick up the mantle for Man of Steel and more recently Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
