Unfortunately, all the actors signed a 3 picture deal. They are all bound by contract to appear in a sequel.

We're stuck with all of them.

And yet you continue to reassure yourself with constant "So and so confirms sequel!!" threads. Street goes both ways.

As for Kevin Spacey, since him and Bryan are friends I think he can convince him to come back for Luthor, especially since Spacey has talked many times about coming back. I also am very wary about actors saying they are going to "retire" because usually its BS, and they end up coming back anyway(save for class acts like Paul Newman). The only way I see him not coming back is if it conflicts with his schedule at the Old Vic, since that is his highest priority.

Spacey has mentioned the possibility in the past of giving up acting and concentrating on his work at the old Vic....so it wouldn't surprise me if he did this.

This article was floating around a week or two ago on many websites, I don't think that Mexican article was translated correctly.

He didn't want to pull himself away from the Vic theater as he did with the Superman Returns movie while performing in a certain play. I don't think this means he won't act again, just not when he is already obligated to another performance.

Ok...maybe I'm wrong.

http://www.pendletoday.co.uk/latest-...icleid=2952386


Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey has said that he no longer cares about his movie career.The star of American Beauty and The Usual Suspects told London Tonight he loved his role as artistic director of London's Old Vic theatre, a position he has held since 2003.

"I don't care about my personal acting career any more. I'm done with it," he said.

"After 10 years of making movies and going better than I ever could have imagined, I sort of had to ask myself: What am I supposed to do with all of this success that I have had?

"Am I just going to keep making movie after movie and be concerned with all of that 'Are you up, are you down, are you hot, are you not?', and I don't really care.

"What I care about is working with people, what I care about is the remarkable experience of being able to be a part of bringing people together."

Spacey, who won an Oscar for his role in the Sam Mendes-directed American Beauty, has acted in a number of productions at the Old Vic, including Richard II and Moon For The Misbegotten.

The theatre's 2007-08 season sees the artistic director taking a lead role in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow, while Mendes will be directing The Tempest and Hamlet.

The season also includes Victorian thriller Gaslight, All About My Mother, based on the film by Pedro Almodovar and the Old Vic panto Cinderella, penned by actor and comedian Stephen Fry.

This Mexican newspaper has been wrong before, so it wouldn't surprise me if this article is false. But I wanted to share it with you guys.

I remember hearing like 6 years ago that Anthony Hopkins was not going to do movies anymore, and he is still doing like 2 movies a year, so who knows?

Maybe we'll get some info about the sequel and Spacey soon.

So that's where the Mexican newspaper got the info,is exactly the same, just in Spanish.

Ask Stacy: "Superman" Sequel For Brandon Routh & Kevin Spacey?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.nationalledger.com/artman...72613955.shtml

By Stacy Jenel Smith
Jun 9, 2007

DEAR STACY: Is there a sequel to the Brandon Routh-Kevin Spacey "Superman" in the making? And what is Spacey doing nowadays? Terrific actor. -- George S., Cleveland DEAR GEORGE: The two-time Oscar winner concludes his starring stint in the Broadway run of Eugene O'Neill's "A Moon for the Misbegotten" today (6/10) and will return to London, where he lives part time and serves as artistic director for the Old Vic theatre. (The revival was an Old Vic production).

"Superman" Sequel For Brandon Routh & Kevin Spacey?

Last September, he announced his decision to stay on with that august institution at least for another nine years. He has a supporting part in the Paul Giamatti-Vince Vaughn Christmastime comedy, "Fred Claus," due this fall -- and has completed "21," based on Ben Mezrich's best seller, "Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six MIT Students Who Took Vegas for Millions." As for "Superman: Man of Steel," the intended 2009 release sequel, Routh is expected to be back as the title character, and Spacey plans to return as Lex Luthor, but there is no start date as yet.

This is the article I was refering to. It doesn't say that he won't do theater, but that he wouldn't leave theater to do a movie.

http://www.andpop.com/article/9334

Hollywood star KEVIN SPACEY has vowed to put his theatre career before any big screen roles - and will appear on stage in January.

The American Beauty actor, who is artistic director at London's Old Vic theatre, disppointed fans last year when he pulled out of performance over a prior commitment to filming Superman Returns.

But he insists the switch isn't something he plans to repeat when he stars as Booby Gould in a revival of David Mamet's Speed-The-Plow.

He says, "I will never take time out from a production again.

"My single and total focus is on the Old Vic."

Hmmm. Anyone know if he's under contract? He's a big star so he might not be obligated but I'm not really sure.

Now I'm confused.

Some info said he's done with acting. And this says he'll be back for a sequel. My head hurts.

Singer doesn't deserve another chance anymore than Brett Ratner.
i agree. i just think that he has no idea to make a superman movie.

He and Singer are friends. He'd probably do it for him.

Didn't Singer shoot all of Lex's scenes close together so Spacey could get back to London while shooting SR?
