In an interview with Coming Soon for his new film “Lie to Me”, actor Brandon Routh talked quite a bit about the upcoming sequel to 2006’s “Superman Returns”.
When will he get to work? “I expect that we’ll be working early next year. I know that Bryan [Singer] has pretty much finished out “Valkyrie” and is back in the states and is zeroing in on the story that he wants to tell. Once that arrives it’s going to move pretty quickly.”
What he wants story wise also sounds a lot more appealing – “I think that’s going to be a central part of the sequel, getting a good villain that we can actually have physical altercations with. Certainly also, I’d like more humor from Clark or just more of Clark and Jimmy. A little bit more of Lois and Clark, how we used to see them, a bit more of buddies.”
He doesn’t seem unhappy that the “Justice League” has died – “I think it’s time for those two characters, certainly, to flourish and some of the DC Comic Universe to strike out on their own first and strengthen each character individually and then to go at all of them together.”
He’s also not dismissing the notion of a “Batman vs. Superman” movie – “I know that people want to see it and maybe there’s a story that could be told that way that makes sense to me. So I won’t put it out anymore. I won’t say no anymore.”
