Brandon Routh?

There's been much speculation over the last month or so regarding whether or not Brandon Routh would be retained in the role of Superman for the next movie, seeing as how Warner Bros. has apparently decided to "reintroduce" the character rather than continue with a sequel to "Superman Returns". has posted a report claiming that Paul Levitz, president of DC Comics, told them that Brandon Routh has had meetings both in offices in New York and Los Angeles to talk about the next movie.
At first I thought it was the Apple Martini I was drinking but I soon realized that I just heard a bombshell go off in my brain! Brandon? He did say Brandon Routh was coming around talking about Superman! Why the hell would they be talking to Brandon if he was not going to be part of the reboot? Because he's still in the mix!!!
The truth of the matter is that the way Mr. Levitz made it seem is that they love Brandon as Clark Kent and that he's just a great guy.

Apparently the hold up at the moment is Warner Bros. concentrating on getting Chris Nolan to commit to a third Batman film before pushing forward with Superman.
As of now just a few moments ago another inside source confirmed that yes they are waiting for Chris Nolan to sign the deal with the next Batman, and that they want him to commit to a July 2011 release. If that happens then the following superhero films will be released.

Green Lantern Summer 2010
