One of the fans’ complaints about "Superman Returns" was that Superman didn’t actually fight anyone in it. Now that a sequel has been announced, the filmmakers seem to be answering the fans. Star Brandon Routh told Rotten Tomatoes that he’s looking forward to coming to blows.

"Bryan [Singer] said at Comic-Con they were going to add some more fighting elements and stuff like that," said Routh. "That might be kind of interesting to throw some punches or throw something, I don’t know, a little more active."
Routh is going to have to hit the gym again to get back into fighting shape, but not just yet. "I think I’ve got a while. We probably won’t start for another at least six months. They’ve got to get things written so I’m still in the gym. I still work out a little bit but certainly not as much as I had been."
Simply as a fan, Routh is eager to get that first draft. "I’m extremely excited, even though I don’t know what the story’s going to be, to find out what the story’s going to be and excited for them, Bryan, Dan [Harris] and Mike [Dougherty] to go start writing and continue the story. I’m excited to see what happens, where the characters are going to go."
