Dean Cain starred as Superman for four seasons on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman on ABC. That means he knows a bit about the role. This knowledge gave his recent comments about the new Batman V Superman movie a bit more weight.
According to Cinema Blend, the actor shared his thoughts on the movie after going out to see it for himself on Easter Sunday. He said:
“The movie obviously was so well made; the effects were incredible. It was too long, though, and I admit, I dozed off a tiny bit, but maybe that’s because I was tired after a lot of traveling. … Whenever I played him, I played Superman as if I had a secret that nobody else knew. That secret is that you could always win. It seemed that Superman didn’t have that in this film. That was different for me. I don’t like seeing him get kicked around so hard. But what I did like a lot is that Superman was so heroic in this film and sacrificed himself before anything or anyone else. That is definitely in tune with the Superman that I know and love.”
Cain now appears on Supergirl as Kara’s adopted human father. There is a possibility that fans of the actor could see more of him on the series. It is possible his character is still alive.
