Russell Crowe is up for a Prequel
Would Russell Crowe play Jor-El again in a new Superman movie? Yes, but no need to keep asking him...
With Man Of Steel closing in on a $300m take in the US, the latest big screen reboot of Superman can be called a success for Warner Bros. And for Russell Crowe, this has meant one thing in particular: he's been asked a lot as to whether he'd be looking to reprise the role of Jor-El in a Man Of Steel prequel.
Admitting that he's "sick of reading the same question" on his Twitter feed, Crowe put the record straight, saying that "a lot of you are asking about a KRYPTON prequel, if that's something you feel strongly about let @Legendary Pictures know your thoughts". He went on to admit that "if it came up, I'd give the tights another go".
It's an unlikely direction for the Superman movie franchise, in truth. But we wouldn't rule out all concerned finding a way to shoehorn Crowe into the now-inevitable Man Of Steel 2
