Brandon Routh revealed that Superman: The Man of Steel should go into production from Warner Brothers soon. Routh spoke to Hollywood.com about his upcoming appearance in Fear Itself, and revealed what the current plans are for the next film featuring the Last Son of Krypton.
Asked if Justice League: Mortal would be out before Superman: The Man of Steel, Routh responded "Oh, I think it seems as though that's not happening, it's on the back burner right now so it's just Man of Steel now." In response to the delay between the two films, Routh said "I know, they're busy writing a script and then I trust we'll be starting next year, early next year. That's my timeline anyway."
Few details are currently available for Superman: The Man of Steel, but it is known that Brandon Routh will return to his role as the Man of Steel and Bryan Singer will be back to direct. Kevin Spacey has also expressed an interest in returning as Lex Luthor.
