Latino Review takes yesterday’s Anne Thompson story and spins it into confirmation that Brandon Routh won’t be returning as the Man of Steel:
Kelvin knew about Brandon not being the new Superman for weeks and weeks now, but made a promise to the DC people that he wouldn’t break the story. Variety has now confirmed what we’ve secretly known for a while and Brandon Routh will be replaced in the stand alone sequel by whomever is cast as Superman in the upcoming Justice League of America movie.
While we can’t say we’re not surprised, we do think Routh looked the part and didn’t do a bad thing all things considered. Plus be made a fine butter statue. So…let his name be honored in the Superman Annals if this is true.
