Now that Superman has returned, what menace will he battle next? That's the big question in Hollywood this week, and since Brandon Routh was discovered in casting sessions for a once-planned "Batman vs. Superman" flick, rumors of the blockbuster smackdown have been resurrected. "I was at a party recently; Hugh Jackman had a benefit at his house," "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer said. "I went there, and Christian Bale was there, and I suddenly felt like Brandon should be there too. I had all these superheroes around me." Routh added that while he enjoyed sparring verbally with "Batman" star Bale recently at the MTV Movie Awards, he'd prefer to see the two heroes work together. "I don't think we should go toe-to-toe, unless one of us is deranged somehow by some mind-altering drug," he laughed. "We shouldn't be fighting each other; we should be combining forces." Singer said he'd consider directing a "Batman vs. Superman" flick, but only after the Man of Steel establishes his identity a bit more thoroughly. "I've thought about it for a long time — even a longer time ago, actually," the director revealed. "But I don't know who would be the villain. I guess Batman would be the villain, but then he can't be too bad, because he is Batman. So not quite yet. ... I think Superman needs to have his own movies for a little while before that happens." Either way, Singer insisted that "everybody's excited to do more ... and I'm sure we'll do another one." And Routh had this word of warning for Bale: "I don't think Batman really, really wants to go and mess with Superman." ...

When they first collaborated for "Edward Scissorhands," Tim Burton was an up-and-coming director and Johnny Depp was looking to sidestep his burgeoning hunky heartthrob image. A decade and a half later, the A-list "Pirates of the Caribbean" star and the director of "Planet of the Apes"-type blockbusters are making plans to reunite yet again. "It's something Tim and I have talked about," Depp said recently of "Sweeney Todd," a big-screen adaptation of the grisly Broadway musical. "We've sort of talked about the idea since years and years ago. We've been speaking about it here and there recently, and it looks like it's looking very good." The flick will feature Depp in his first major singing role, but the actor thinks that nervousness won't be a problem since he'll be working under the trusting eye of an old friend. "I sure hope it happens because, God — just to go back to work for Tim again, it'd be our sixth movie together," Depp grinned. "It's looking very good." ...

Isla Fisher won over audiences with her over-the-top comedic work in "Wedding Crashers," and now she's looking forward to showing her new fans that she has some dramatic chops as well. She just finished filming "The Lookout," a crime thriller written and directed by Scott Frank about a mentally disabled janitor. The film also stars Jeff Daniels and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose character gets caught up in a bank heist. "It's really interesting," Fisher said. "I don't really want to talk about it, because it reveals things about the plot, and it's such a great thriller. It's a great role and I loved working with Joseph. He's a very talented, talented young guy. I just think he's so present, consistently, that you can't cheat at all." With the film due in theaters later this year, Fisher was willing to reveal one tiny, spoiler-free detail about her femme-fatale character: "Her name is Luvlee Lemons," she laughed. ...

English beauty Naomie Harris has set the table for a major breakthrough this summer, with a chameleon-esque appearance in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," a blockbuster follow-up weeks later in "Miami Vice" and then a return to the set of the third "Pirates" film. "I feel like Tia Dalma is immensely sexy," she said of her "Pirates of the Caribbean" character. "I think she's even sexier than [my "Miami Vice" character] Trudy actually because there's a lot more insecurity to Trudy's character than there is to Tia Dalma. She is much more centered in who she is, and I think that's immensely attractive and sexy." Adding that Trudy (the love interest for Jamie Foxx's Ricardo Tubbs) comes from the original '80s TV show, Harris said with pride that all the old characters have been changed substantially. "It is based on that character, the idea, but [writer/director] Michael Mann wanted to make the movie as different from the series as possible. It is loosely based, but then the character is really moving on and going into other dimensions." Harris said that working on the July 28 remake was a particularly unique experience, since the director was reinterpreting his own creation. "It was nice, because Michael Mann really gave us the freedom to come up with our own characters," she revealed. "He didn't straight-out tell us, 'It's got to be so similar to the series,' which would have been tough. It's always tough to play somebody else's role. I'm not good at that. I'm really good at creating my own characters that come from my own inspiration." ...

July is Wireless Courtesy Month, in case you didn't receive the memo, and now one Hollywood hitmaker is determined to remind you to hit that "vibrate" button when the lights go down. "Oh, I'm sorry — is my directing interfering with your phone call?" Oscar winner Sydney Pollack ("Tootsie," "The Interpreter") sarcastically exclaims to a man in the middle of a cell phone call. "How rude of me!" The public-service trailer, which features a script-wielding Pollack offering stage direction to the caller, will run in movie theaters throughout the month. ...

One of the more bizarre projects in development is the Wayans brothers' remake of "The Munsters," a big-screen comedy based on the classic show about a freakish, yet kindhearted, family. "What's funny is, 'The Munsters' was basically the 'hood," Shawn Wayans said. Keenen Ivory Wayans said the brothers' script will play off the out-of-time elements of Herman's family as much as it will their terrifying appearances. "I just think with them, you've gotta do what we do well, [which] is the pop-cultural juxtaposition of who they are and where the world is now. When 'The Munsters' first came out, it was the '60s. Well, we're in the new millennium now, so we've got to bring them into the age of hip-hop." The film will not, however, star any of the Wayans. "We're just producing and writing," Marlon Wayans insisted, prompting Shawn to add: "Yeah, you ain't gonna see me as Eddie Munster ... having a Jheri curl. It ain't gonna be like that." "We're not gonna change the ethnicity," Keenen confirmed, hoping the script will move forward soon. "They're still going to be the Munsters, but like I said, we're gonna put them in a different world."
