Kevin Spacey, the depicter of Superman's archenemy Lex Luthor, confessed that he would love to reprise his villainous role in the Superman sequel "Superman: The Man of Steel". According to Monsters and Critics, the 48-year-old actor has been looking forward to the chance of him playing the bald villain in the upcoming superhero flick.
Talking to the site, the "American Beauty" star revealed that he has actually been tapped to play the character, but the decision depends on the filmmakers. "I believe they are in talks at the moment. I have actually already signed up to do it," explained the actor. "So if they decide to go ahead with it and they still want me, then I will definitely be in it."
Further, the "21" star also confessed that his decision to reprise his role was influenced by the coming back of Bryan Singer on the project. On the chance of working together with Singer again, Spacey said, "I absolutely loved it. One of the reasons I signed up to do it was because I wanted to work with Bryan Singer again, who I worked with on 'The Usual Suspects' in 1995, because I think he is an absolute genius."
Further, it was also said that Brandon Routh also can't wait to return as the "Man of Steel". "I'm certainly excited to do another one," Routh confessed. "I don't think we'll start for a while since we have a 2009 release, but I'm definitely excited about the potential."
