Spacey To Return As Superman's Nemesis

Kevin Spacey wants to star in the next Superman movie.

The 48-year-old actor – who played villain Lex Luthor in 2006 movie Superman Returns – is very keen to reprise his role in the sequel.

He said: “I believe they are in talks at the moment. I have actually already signed up to do it. So if they decide to go ahead with it and they still want me, then I will definitely be in it.”

Kevin also said he loved starring in the film alongside Brandon Routh, who played the Man of Steel, and Kate Bosworth.

He added: “I absolutely loved it. One of the reasons I signed up to do it was because I wanted to work with Bryan Singer again, who I worked with on The Usual Suspects in 1995, because I think he is an absolute genius.”

Routh is also looking forward to portraying the DC Comics superhero again in the tentatively titled Superman: Man of Steel.

He said: “I’m certainly excited to do another one. I don’t think we’ll start for a while since we have a 2009 release, but I’m definitely excited about the potential.”
