Superman’s A Gamer? Brandon Routh Talks ‘World Of Warcraft,’ Hopes For Role In Movie

Last week, you heard from “Superman Returns” actor Brandon Routh about his upcoming role in the live-action adaptation of “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” but at one point during my conversation with the comics-friendly star, the subject turned to gaming: specifically, his obsession with the popular online role-playing game “World of Warcraft.”

Apparently, the Man of Steel isn’t just a child of Krypton and Earth — he’s also a resident of Azeroth, too.

“I’m kind of a gamer,” Routh told MTV News. He then hinted that he’s not only excited about the announcement that “Spider-Man” director Sam Raimi will helm a big-screen adaptation of the game, but he’s hoping to get a role in it.

“They just announced that Sam Raimi is directing, so that’s very cool,” said Routh. “My friends over at Legendary are working on that. … So I’m looking forward to what’s going to happen with that.”

When I asked him whether he’s hoping to get a call for that project, Routh couldn’t help but smile.

“You might get a little action — a little sword fighting — that would be a lot of fun,” he said.

What do you think of Brandon Routh, the gamer? Think he’s a Horde guy or an Alliance guy? What about casting him in the film?
