As of today, the Superman reboot has a script, a director and a confirmed villain (not bad considering this morning we only had one of the three). The big story that remains, of course, is who will be donning the cape. As we've previously reported, Brandon Routh, who played the role in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, has developed quite a heavy fan-base and would love to take on the role again. Sadly, it seems like it's not meant to be. Variety spoke with Zack Snyder today about accepting the job of director, and he let loose a detail that is going to disappoint a lot of fans. According to the article, Snyder has said it "isn't likely" that Routh will play the role again in the Christopher Nolan produced film.
