Well that didn’t take long. Speculation as to whether Brandon Routh will cape up in Zack Snyder’s Superman: The Man Of Steel (is that even a verb? Did I just invent a word?) can now be settled. He won’t. But there is a consolation prize! Tell him what he won, Johnny! He gets to star in an indie-drama with his wife! Which has pretty much the same retail value as a Superman reboot. So, good for him.
Anyway, Routh and his lady Courtney Ford will star in Missing William. The film takes place in Rhode Island where a house wife (Ford) is forced to take care of her husband after he suffers an injury in a bar fight. But then the bow-chika-wow-wow music starts playing when her former flame (Routh) shows up and starts complicating things. Gosh, Rhode Island is so dramatic.
Good for Routh though. I personally didn’t think Superman Returns was that bad. Sure it wasn’t great, but I didn’t think it was the worst thing in the world, but then again I’m not the biggest Superman fan around. And he has some hilarious bit parts in Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Hopefully he can pull it off. If he doesn’t he’ll just pull someone’s arms off. Have you seen this guy’s biceps? Holy hell, he could wring out a gallon out of an oak tree.
