Brandon Routh to Stay in 'Superman' Reboot

Brandon Routh to Stay in 'Superman' Reboot

The speculation was sparked up by DC Comics President Paul Levitz's comment about the previous meetings related to the return of the man of steel's depicter.

Despite Warner Bros. Pictures' decision on starting the "Superman" franchise from the scratch once again, Brandon Routh may still be kept as the famous man of steel in the reboot project. Latino Review reported that the potential return of the 29-year-old as Clark Kent/Superman has been hinted by DC Comics President Paul Levitz in a recent interview.

Sparking the rumor, Levitz noted that Routh has had meetings with the DC Comics lately to discuss about the future "Superman" project. "Last week Brandon Routh has come around the offices in New York and Los Angeles as of late to talk about Superman and what we want to do," so he claimed in the interview. Nevertheless, whether the speculation holds some truth is yet to be proven.

Back in August, Warner Bros. have announced that instead of moving on with a sequel to "Superman Returns", the studio will start the project right from the scratch. It is still unclear though whether the reboot movie will be titled "Superman: The Man of Steel" in place of the sequel, or it will adopt a new one. Additionally, The Independent earlier noted in its article that Kevin Spacey will reprise his role as baddie Lex Luthor in the reboot.

    Who cares as long as they replace that talentless Lois Lane Kate Bosworth. A faster talking sexier chick maybe Jordana Brewster or Kate Beckinsale hell or even the hottie from Smallville.

    For real all i want to see is a new bad guy, I'm sick of Lex he is boring and needs to be replaced. Bring in someone exciting and that will put up a good fight. I'm sure most Superman fans are thinking and saying the same thing.

    Brandon Routh has a three picture deal as Superman. Warner Brothers is not going to pay somebody else to play Superman and also pay Mr. Routh. It is starting to look more and more as if there is a sequel to Superman Returns being made(Superman Man of Steel) and may already be in the early stages of production.

    Brandon Routh did not have the powerful look for a superman. I hope he is sacked and replaced by Tom Welling or some other Superman actor that looks like a man

    Oct 23, 2008

    An office visit? Sounds vague. Maybe Brandon went around to find out what was going on. It doesn't sound like a definite yes.

    Brandon routh is our SUPERMAN. plz bring routh back. Sparky, u r so rude. when they can make spiderman & batman with same heros again, then why not brandon routh as superman? it seems that they r so confused to cast him again. they shouldnt be. they should make their script & story powerful and should not blame the actors for it.

    Oct 14, 2008

    Cool.... brandon still superman, im so.. happy he did a great job in superman returns. I would like to see more action, in the next film i wanna see superman punch or throw something huge. I would like to see doomsday or members of the justice league in the next film. Get michael bay to direct the next film as he's an awesome director.

    Dan the Man- If they weren't at least considering Routh to return, he wouldn't of been to both main offices in NYC and LA. If he was out, they would've told him so at one or the other. Why tell him he's fired at twice at two different places?

    I'm so sick of these internet geeks taking one miniscule little quote and turning it into some sort of big deal. So what if Levitz made a throwaway comment? The quote clearly states that Routh came around DC Comics' offices to talk about what Warner Brothers is going to do. So that means he's going to reprise his role? That's a long shot by any measure.

    Oct 11, 2008

    I hope the next Superman movie does keep Brandon Routh!
