Russell Crowe Open To 'MAN OF STEEL' Prequel As Film Becomes #1 Superhero Reboot
Actor Russell Crowe, who portrays Jor-El in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" has let it be known that he has no qualms about starring in a prequel film that focuses on his character's exploits on Krypton. Is that a film you'd be interested in seeing?
Apparently actor Russell Crowe is being bombarded with fan questions on twitter about whether there are any discussions being had about a "Man of Steel" prequel that focuses on the exploits of Jor-El before Krypton's explosion. Said Crowe on twitter, "A lot of you are asking about a KRYPTON prequel, if that's something you feel strongly about let @Legendary pictures know your thoughts." But Crowe, isn't necessarily campaigning for such a film to be made but he's simply responding to a rather large contingent of fans voicing their desires to the award winning actor. Crowe admitted he's a little tired of getting asked that question but he also stated that if a prequel film was indeed given the green light, "I’d give the tights another go."
In somewhat related news, comicbook.com has pointed out that "Man of Steel" ($263M) is now the #1 superhero reboot of all-time at the domestic box office, having recently surpassed Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" ($262M).
