Hollywoodland (Sept. 8) Ben Affleck is the new Brandon Routh. Or is it the other way around? No matter, I’m totally gonna check out this noir-ish looking biopic about the mysterious death of TV Superman George Reeves (Affleck, pictured), the trailer for which synergistically ran before Superman Returns in many theaters this past weekend. I know, I know; the last time Affleck donned hero drag, we got the crappy Daredevil, but with Adrien Brody, Diane Lane, Bob Hoskins, and Wonderfalls‘ terrific Caroline Dhavernas (in a supporting role) signed on to what’s an inherently interesting story, how bad can this one be? (And is it just me or is that Kathleen Robertson in the scene by the clothesline? Maybe that Swank chick is starting a trend toward 90210 alumni credibility?)
