Superman - Man of Wax

The film is not even in cinemas yet, but "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh already has his own wax figure modeled after his character.

Routh was on hand as the figure was unveiled the Man of Steel- er, wax- by the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York City Tuesday.

The young actor said "It's very flattering, but it's Superman as much as it is me. It's great to have that part of history in Madame Tussauds and for people to come up and see is kind of exciting. Everybody wants to see "Superman Returns."

"Superman Returns" flies it's way into theaters on June 28th.
