There's actually a chance that Brandon Routh could reprise his role as Superman in Zack Snyder's new film being produced by Christopher Nolan! You can thank all the internet fanboys and fangirls of the world for this one.
According to the British newspaper News of the World, a surge of online support for the 31-year-old actor has convinced Snyder to give Routh another chance at playing Superman, and he will be considered again for the role even though Warner Bros. asked for an all-new cast.
In a recently interview, Snyder talked about the Internet campaign to get Routh cast in the new movie. He went on to say, "I know! I didn't realize there was such a groundswell!"
Well, there is a groundswell. I didn't like Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, it was a very weak film, but Routh did a great job in the role, I don't blame him. I blame the poor story, directing and script.
What do you all think about Routh being back in the running to play Superman?
