“Man of Steel,” the new Superman movie, debuts on Friday. Who do the Saints’ players think would be the best of their teammates to play Superman?

QB Ryan Griffin — Jimmy Graham. He’s big and athletic. You’ve got some guy on defense, too, but Jimmy has everything you’re looking for. He’s a freak of nature.

CB Malcolm Jenkins — Jimmy Graham, without hesitation. He just looks the part. He’s big, muscular and could probably fly a little bit.

S Kenny Vaccaro — Jonathan Vilma. He’s just that dude. Everybody looks up to him. When he speaks everybody listens. He’s the leader of our team.

S Jabari Greer — Not to throw out the most obvious, but Drew Brees. Not so much his ability but for the immaculate golden locks. I know Superman has dark hair but I would still go with Drew.

S Keenan Lewis — On this team, Drew Brees. He can say things and make things happen. But overall it would have to be Troy Polamalu, With his hair it looked like he had a cape flying around out there.

DT John Jenkins — Drew Brees. He has great leadership. Athletically, I’d have to go with Junior Galette. He has a lot of abilities I’m just wowed by. The way he goes just amazes me.

DE Martez Wilson — Me. I’m athletic and my nickname in college was “Super.” If they come looking for a black Superman, I’d be the volunteer to be the first. I think I’m good looking enough, too.
