More SR Sequel News: Brandon Routh Talks Man Of Steel

ComingSoon.net just published a new and very interesting interview with Brandon Routh, mainly to discuss about his upcoming new movies ("Lie To Me," "Life Is Hot In Cracktown," Miss Nobody," and "Dylan Dog") as well as an upcoming TV Show for NBC, "Fear Itself," an anthology series he will be part of this summer (he'll appear in an episode titled, "Community"), but also to ask him about the sequel to "Superman Returns."

Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Q: Do you have any expectation as to when you might go to work on "Man of Steel"?

    Routh: 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. I think that everybody is getting excited. It's been three years now, really. It's hard to believe that it's been long, but everyone is getting jazzed and ready to go again. I certainly am.

    Q: What sides of Superman and Clark Kent are you excited about exploring in the sequel?

    Routh: Well, I think that something that audiences are looking for - and I certainly am, too - is for Superman to actually be able to lay a punch on someone or something. I was filming and I thought, "I haven't really hit anything. I feel like I'm going to need to let some of this anger out." So I'm happy that 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. Perhaps things will be smoothed over with Superman and Lois and she can afford to be a little bit nicer to Clark. I think that's something that people want to see and those are some of the great moments from previous "Superman" films. Also, Superman and Lois getting together, that's always my end goal. I want that to happen. The romantic in me wants that to happen eventually whether they're finally together in this movie or in whatever future films there might be. I kind of want to see that happen.

    Q: Poor James Marsden. He's getting used to losing the girl.

    Routh: I know, but he had some good films come out this year, and so James is doing all right.

    Q: Has Bryan given you any voice in the plan, maybe asking you what you'd like to see or what you're looking forward to?

    Routh: Yeah, and well, even if he doesn't ask I tell him all the time. He's very receptive to my notes and my thoughts and so I just let him know. I keep telling him that thing about Lois and Superman getting together and I trust that if I keep repeating that he'll just think it's his own thought someday.
