I don't know about you, but it seems to me as though we just finished an entire year of writing about Superman Returns. We had almost no downtime on the Man of Steel, because all those pesky rumors were suggesting the film hadn't made enough for Warners to want a sequel, but director Bryan Singer was running around talking about the sequel anyway. The dust finally settled a few weeks back when Warners agreed to give Singer back his toy, but made him promise to be more careful with it (read: spend a lot less money and make fans happier) this time. This essentially means it is time to start talking about Singer's new Superman flick, which means I get to write even more about him. Aren't I just the lucky one?

Okay ... yeah, I am. I love it. Ready to start round two? Good. Now that Singer is officially on the go for his second try, star Brandon Routh is of course set to join him. Rotten Tomatoes caught up to Routh to ask him his thoughts on the next Superman flick. Routh responded to Singer's discussion of adding more action to the flick, saying: "That might be kind of interesting to throw some punches or throw something, I don't know, a little more active." Is it just me, or does that quote say a whole lot about the first flick. When the guy who plays Superman isn't actually sure what it would be like to "throw some punches," you've got a problem with your movie. Routh also said he'll need to hit the gym again more seriously to get back into Man of Steel shape, but he isn't worried because he has some six months to go before shooting starts. Maybe he can spend some time at the punching bag. ...
