Russell Crowe Up For 'Man of Steel' Prequel

Not content to hog up most of Superman's movie, Jor'El wants his own film.

What do you do for round two when you've already destroyed the city you're supposed to protect?  You go back in time of course.  No, I don't mean watch the old Superman movies, although that probably is a good idea, I'm talking about Superman's pop-pop.  No, not that one, the one that atcually wanted him to a be a hero and was in half the movie as ghost dad: Jor'El.

For many, the best part of Man of Steel was the science fiction intro on Krypton.   Russell Crowe has showed interest in revisiting Krypton for a prequel, saying he'd be willing to "give the tights another go."



I know a lot of you loved Man of Steel, but I was not one of them.  I have zero interest in a Superman sequel with Snyder at the helm.  But I would actually be interested in a sci-fi Jor'El movie.  Let us know what you think, or better yet, tweet at @Legendary to let them know.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
