Someone wants to play 'Lex Luthor' again!
While I think many people were not too crazy about 'Superman Returns,' I think most of us can agree that Kevin Spacey did a fantastic job with his portrayal of ' Lex Luthor' in the film! Perhaps the reason his portrayal was so good is because he enjoyed the role as much as he did? In fact, he liked Lex so much that he would love a chance to reprise the role, based on what he said in a recent interview with MTV.
"If I ran Warner Brothers I could tell you definitively we’d be making that movie," Spacey told MTV News. "But I don’t, and they haven’t called me to tell me...Literally all I know is what I’ve heard from press reports...I can’t even confirm whether those are true or not because I haven’t spoken to Bryan [Singer]...I don’t know what the situation is," he explained. "If they do it again and Bryan directs, I’d be delighted to come along for the ride. But who knows?"
While I do feel that the likelihood of there being a sequel to the first film has increased with the recent changes at Warner Brothers, the fact that the film did not surpass it's budget of $270 million in domestic gross profits may mean that a sequel is rather unlikely. Realistically, how would a sequel to 'Superman Returns' fare at the box office, and what elements should be changed in order to make the film a success? Do you think DC could make a successful sequel, or is Superman far too dated for the 21st Century?
