Superman Unbound: Roundtable Interview with Matt Bomer
I had the great pleasure of being in a round table interview at WonderCon with Matt Bomer, the voice of Superman and Clark Kent in Superman Unbound, this past weekend. Now as I simply went through the Q&A with Molly Quinn (voice of Supergirl and one of the stars of Castle) for my last article it was because we had more then a few minutes with her and some very amazing and valid questions were brought up. With Matt Bomer his personality and sense of humor got the best of us and only a few questions were brought to the table.
So the recap is what I’m doing here. Matt Bomer was at one point connected to the possible Brett Ratner Superman movie that we all know never came true, when asked about what being able to play Superman albeit voice acting he said “this character has been oddly enough connected to my career at one point in time or another and I am very happy to have been able to do this.” On the mythos and legendary number of people who have voiced Superman he was asked if he looked at any of them “No, I really didn’t I wanted to come at this character and make it my own, and hopefully people think I did a great job because I would love another chance to voice him.”
With Tim Daly being noted as the quintessential voice of Superman, much like Mark Hamill, and Kevin Conroy are for the Joker and Batman, Bomer has an uphill battle winning over long time fans of DC’s animated genre, but with his true passion to do it right, and his love for Superman I feel he’s not only done the red and blue suit justice, but he brought some feeling and a different type of life to this classic Superman tale.
