It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman! Or maybe we should say it’s Supermen.
Superman actors united over this past weekend as Tom Welling (“Smallville” 2001-2011), Gerard Christopher (“Superboy” 1988-1992), Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns” 2006), Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” 1993-1997) and Tyler Hoechlin (“Superman & Lois” 2021-2024) met with fans at Rhode Island Comic Con.
Rhode Island Comic Con is a three-day comic convention held during November at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Amica Mutual Pavilion, and Omni Providence Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island. The convention was the state’s first.
Ironically, this grouping wasn’t initially planned. The stars just coincidental united for some fantastic images.
An actor from each generation posed with each generation for a brief snapshot that garnered some of the most iconic Superman group shots to date.
Pictured below is Clark Kent Bannon striking his best Superman pose with Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, Dean Cain, and Tyler Hoechlin.
“When we named him Clark Kent Bannon, we decided it would be fun to get pictures with him and as many of the actors who have played Clark Kent/Superman as possible,” said Shawn Bannon to the Daily Planet. “The first one he met was Dean Cain when Clark was just a baby, and the guys have been awesome to him every time he’s seen them since then. Tom Welling was just telling him yesterday about how little he was the first time they met. This was the first time meeting Tyler, but he’d met the other three before and has also met Henry Cavill. It was awesome, though, to get a pic of him with four of them at once.”
