There have been various actors who have played Superman either in the movies or on television. It is its own club to have played the Man of Steel. Now Tim Daly’s son Sam Daly has joined the ranks of the Supermen. Watch Tim Daly’s son get initiated into the League of Supermen by his own father, and some recent well-known actors who have portrayed Superman.
What’s great about this video, The Daly Supermen, is how these actors are able to make fun of their experience. I loved how they shush Sam and tell them that they do not speak of past Lois Lanes. Dean Cain’s floating head through an iPad is hilarious, and of course is there to remind us of Marlon Brando’s Jor El. Who wouldn’t love to put on some Superman pajamas and play as the Man of Steel in a tree house with real live Supermen.
Sam Daly sure does seem ready to fill his father’s shoes by voicing Superman in the new DVD DC Comics movie event. When asked about how he feels about taking over the role Sam Daly stated,
“Taking over the role of Superman is both amazing and intimidating,” he said in an interview. “Superman is such an iconic super hero and to have the opportunity to give him a voice is truly an honor that I do not take lightly. Taking over the reigns from my father is just the icing on the cake.”

Sam Daly voices Superman in the upcoming DVD movie The Flashpoint Paradox. The film is based on the comic book series where something in time created a change in history. This paradox creates a reality where Bruce Wayne died and his father Thomas Wayne became The Batman (and his mother The Joker, Ha, Ha), where Superman never made it to Smallville instead landing in Metropolis as a child where he was placed in an underground facility to not see the light of day, and where Aquaman and his underwater kingdom is in a war with Wonder Woman’s Amazons killing hundreds of millions of humans in the process. The only one unaffected by the Paradox is the Flash where he investigates these horrific changes in time. The Flashback Paradox is released on DVD July 30, 2013.
