Kevin Spacey isn't done with the role of Lex Luthor - at least not if he has anything to say about it. The Academy Award-winning actor told Monsters and Critics that he would like to return to the role he played in Superman Returns in the talked about Superman: The Man of Steel.

Spacey said:

I believe they are in talks at the moment. I have actually already signed up to do it. So if they decide to go ahead with it and they still want me, then I will definitely be in it.

Spacey added that he took the role because of his desire to work with director Bryan Singer again, who he had previously worked on in The Usual Suspects. "I think he is an absolute genius," Spacey said.

Brandon Routh, who played Superman in the film, is also excited about returning to the role of the Man of Steel. "I'm certainly excited to do another one," Routh said. "I don't think we'll start for a while since we have a 2009 release, but I'm definitely excited about the potential."
