Routh and Singer on Superman Returns

In Entertainment Weekly‘s 2006 preview, Superman Returns star Brandon Routh and director Bryan Singer talk briefly about the anticipated film. Here are a few clips:

At least the guy looks like Superman. In fact, newcomer Brandon Routh, 26, credits a resemblance to his cinematic predecessor with getting him into showbiz. “When my first manager signed me, he said I looked like Christopher Reeve,” says Routh (pictured). “If I didn’t, I don’t know if he would have said, ‘I want to work with you.’”

Shot in the American heartland of…Sydney, Australia, “Superman was a pretty vicious film” to make, says director Bryan Singer (X-Men), now in the throes of complex effects work. Expensive? Quite — but not nearly $250 million expensive, as “some moron” (Singer’s description) recently attributed to him. “I take enormous pride in being fiscally responsible. That really pissed me off.” Language, Bryan! Superman would not approve.

The 2006 preview issue is on stands now.
