Brandon Routh gets a bad rap for his turn as the Man of Steel in “Superman Returns.” The movie was… not great. That wasn’t his fault though. Routh looked the part, he acted the part and he reminded us all that there is life after Christopher Reeve, even for Superman.
He’s also a gamer. Big time. Which makes him someone I can relate to. Speaking with MTV Splash Page’s Rick Marshall at San Diego Comic-Con, Routh revealed that he sinks many of his idle hours into Blizzard’s supremely popular online role-playing game “World of Warcraft.” And as you might expect, he’s keen on swinging a sword in director Sam Raimi’s adaptation of the property, “Warcraft.” To which I have one thing to say. Sweet.
