It seems that Brandon Routh may still be slated to wear the red and blue tights of Superman in the sequel to Bryan Singer's Superman Returns. Contrary to earlier rumors that Routh was out as Superman, Ain't It Cool News has discovered otherwise.

The next time that Superman appears on the big screen will be in George Miller's Justice League of America. In this film, an actor other than Routh will be playing the role of Superman - just like there will be an actor other than Christian Bale playing Batman. However, in the next stand-alone Superman film, tentatively titled Superman: The Man of Steel, Warner still wants Routh to return.

So, just to clarify; We will see a new Superman in Justice League of America. But Routh will still be Superman when they make Superman: The Man of Steel.
