Bryan Singer, Brandon Routh Leaving Superman Returns Sequel?

Who's your new Man of Steel?

Depending on what week it is, and which rumor you believe, Bryan Singer has either spent the last year and a half preparing to buckle down and get to work on the sequel to Superman Returns, or he’s continually put it off in favor of other projects. Well, now we can add a new rumor to the list: Singer won’t be directing the sequel at all.

According to Variety‘s Anne Thompson, “it is highly unlikely” that Singer will direct the Man of Steel’s next big-screen adventure, and it’s all but set in stone that Justice League of America will reach theaters before the next standalone Superman film:

The next Superman we will see on the big screen will not be Brandon Routh, but a younger Superman among a cast of youthful superheroes in The Justice League. That movie will likely not be shot, however, until after the WGA strike is resolved.

Oh, and speaking of Brandon Routh? According to Latino Review, his spitcurl days are done. The site reports that Routh “will be replaced in the sequel by whomever is cast as Superman in the upcoming Justice League of America movie” — meaning that if another rumor is correct, Scott Porter (the wheelchair-bound Jason Street from NBC’s Friday Night Lights) is Warner Bros.’ new Supes.

So, to sum up: Singer’s out, Routh’s out, and Porter is being handed the keys to the film version of DC’s most iconic superhero. And these are all rumors, so we’ll probably wind up telling you something completely different six weeks from now. Enjoy ’em while they last!
