"Superman Returns" raised a lot of questions about what kind of sequel might follow the 2006 film and who would come back, as well as whether Warner Brothers would simply start from scratch with the next film about the Man of Steel. "Ninja Assassin" director James McTeigue was once rumored to replace Bryan Singer, but DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson recently said the company doesn't "have any current plans for Superman."
Well, Kevin Spacey doesn't have any Superman plans either, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't return to the role of Lex Luthor.
"If I ran Warner Brothers I could tell you definitively we’d be making that movie," Spacey told MTV News. "But I don’t, and they haven’t called me to tell me."
The "Men Who Stare at Goats" star sounds like he's in the same boat Superman fans are, waiting to read a headline with some good news.
"Literally all I know is what I’ve heard from press reports," Spacey said. "I can’t even confirm whether those are true or not because I haven’t spoken to Bryan [Singer]."
If Singer were to be a part of the package, though, he would be open to revisiting the part.
"I don’t know what the situation is," he explained. "If they do it again and Bryan directs, I’d be delighted to come along for the ride. But who knows?"
