Here's a quote:

NRAMA: Then there’s Adam Baldwin as Superman. His voice is a little deeper and rockier than your previous choices.

BT: That’s the irony of it. When we were first casting for Superman: The Animated Series, we were looking for somebody with a more mature, Bud Collyer/George Reeves kind of voice, and we couldn’t find anybody. We auditioned a lot of guys who had deep voices, but they all sounded like radio announcers. Their acting chops weren’t there.

That’s why we ended up going with Tim Daly. Even though he wasn’t the voice we were hearing in our heads, we couldn’t deny he was a really good actor and we could see how he would fit. Over the years, I actually started to turn around. Tim Daly and George Newburn, who did him in Justice League, were in the Christopher Reeve mold, the more idealistic Superman.

NRAMA: The Kansas farmboy.

BT: Yeah. They’re not the Curt Swan drawings.

With this one being we were going back to scratch. Adam’s name came up and we had already worked with him a couple of times on Justice League. He’s a great guy and a really good actor, and he’s really that kind of guy we were originally looking for. He’s got that really deep, macho voice but he can also bring that vulnerability to it. He’s just not the stern father figure. So I ultimately got the Superman I was originally looking for way back in 1995.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Yep, read on another forum last week that Adam would be doing the voice of Superman on the Superman/Doomsday dvd. I'll be checking it out when it comes out. Not much on Superman, but Adam is great.

Holding the line since December '02!
