Brandon Routh's 'Superman' contract expired
“The term of the contract expired,” Routh said on Spanish-language Web site Omelete. “But if they call me again, (I'd go) back to the character without thinking twice!” Yeah, steady work does that to you.
Word around the campfire is that Warner Bros. is planning a Batman-style reboot with a grittier feel, MTV News says. They probably wouldn't need a Christopher Reeve mimic for something like that.
“I do not know of anything,” Rou said. “I’m sure that Warner Bros. is moving there, but everything is still uncertain. Really, I do not know anything.”
We wouldn't go advertising that fact too loudly, BR.
