Superman wants to be in the World of Warcraft movie

Superman is a gamer, wears a Warcraft t-shirt and he's dreaming of a role in the World of Warcraft film. When we say Superman we, of course, are referring to Brandon Routh, star of Superman Returns and the latest actor to play the Man of Steel on the silver screen. And though his future in tights has been in doubt since that mediocre film’s release, that doesn’t mean he can’t imagine being a blood elf instead of a Kryptonian.

Talking to MTV at Comic-Con while wearing in a green shirt that’s famous to most WoW fanboys, at least in this office, Routh declares his love of WoW, his excitement about the upcoming movie and his interest in a possible role. When asked if he was hoping to land a part, Routh pondered, "you might get a little action, a little sword fighting, that would be a lot of fun.”

While we all wait for the World of Warcraft film to actually get made with Evil Dead/Spider-Man director Sam Raimi at the helm, you can see Routh really soon in the very videogame-inspired Scott Pilgrim movie. Meanwhile, we’ll have our fingers crossed that Brnadon gets replaced as Superman by Jon Hamm of Mad Men.

    It's so neat to see these bg muscley Hollywood dudes talking about how much they like videogames. And not Madden and Call of Duty, but Street Fighter and WoW!!

    He was someone you loved to hate in Chuck. I would support this.

    I like Routh. He was good in Chuck and he has the same Bday as me. Cool guy.
