Back in March we learned that a Superman Returns sequel was in stasis (rumored to be titled Superman Unleashed).
To add salt to Superman fans’ wounds actor Brandon Routh has confirmed his contract to return as Superman has now lapsed.
“The contract has expired,” Routh said. “I don’t know anything. I’m sure that Warner Bros’ are moving on it, but it’s all uncertain. I really don’t know.”
Although plans for the sequel remain unknown, Routh offers some comfort to fans.
“If they called me for another time I would return without a second thought.”
His comments came from the set of Scott Pilgrim vs The World and were published on The Omelete in Portuguese – the above translations are loose (thanks to a free online translator) but you get the point.
