10: Scott Porter

8: Chris Pine

7: Emile Hirsch
Definately a guy that can act, something he proved in films like Milk, Into the Wild and Alpha Dog. Has the looks to get the part, and would at least in my opinion be a very good choice for the next Superman.
6: Zachary Levi
We all know this guy from ‘Chuck’. He has the look to play that part, as the more nerdy person, but he would also work as the next Clark Kent. Maybe this could be his breakthrough as an actor? Rumours says he’s actually already been on auditions for a role in the film.
5: Topher Grace

Nowadays his running around in a far off jungle, trying to not be killed by Predators. His career in Hollywood has gotten a real boost lately, and now he would deserve to get that lead he is looking for.
4: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
slashwirE have seen him as a possible Hulk in ‘The Avengers’ and Riddler in Batman 3 – and now we consider him as a fitting actor for the role as Superman. Definately a very talented actor, who could get almost every kind of role he wants.
3: Matthew Bomer
Known from roles like Bryce Larkin in Chuck and Eric in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Bomer would definately be a very good choice for the next Superman. Talented actor, who deserves a breakthrough in his career.
2: Brandon Routh
This man played Superman back in 2006, and why fix what’s not broken? Routh definately worked back then, and with big possibilities he will work this time as well.
1: Tom Welling
Welling actually plays Clark Kent, in the CW show Smallville, and IF they’re casting a new Superman, it should be Tom Welling. Has shown in Smallville that he’s a very talented actor, and he also has the looks of the superhero.
