Look, they’re all there. Christopher, Henry, Tom, George, and Dean, as well as two illustrated versions – and NO BRANDON! What, did they think that his presence would be newsstand poison, that he would somehow curse the issue like he cursed Superman Returns? Poor Brandon Routh! Poor DEAR, SWEET, WONDERFUL Brandon Routh! First of all, it’s a misconception that Superman Returns bombed. It made $400 million! That’s hardly a bomb. And, yes, it was kind of a dreary outing, but I blame that on Kevin Spacey’s charisma-free turn as Lex Luther. Brandon was fine. Brandon was adorable. And Brandon had a lump in his tights the size of a Christmas ham, and that ALONE should have insured the movie’s success. But no. He alone has been left to shoulder the blame for the movie not becoming a franchise. And in turn, his career has suffered. I thought he was fab in Scott Pilgrim, and I thought he was dreamy in Chuck. And yet, this cover shows that people are still hestitant about using him. It’s a damn shame, I say. A damn shame! BRANDON, I SUPPORT YOU!
