Russell Crowe would consider a Man Of Steel prequel

While Man Of Steel may have polarised both critics and audiences, its mammoth box office take has made a sequel an inevitability.

However, what about a prequel? With Zack Snyder establishing a new vision of Superman’s homeland, is there any scope for a prequel story based around Jor-El?

It’s a question that Russell Crowe has apparently been asked a lot on Twitter, with the Australian star admitting he wouldn’t be averse to the idea.

“A lot of you are asking about a KRYPTON prequel,” said Crowe on the social networking site. “If that's something you feel strongly about let @Legendary pictures know your thoughts.”

The questions continued to come, and when pushed on the matter, Crowe revealed that, “if it came up, I'd give the tights another go.”

We’d say it would be more likely to see Crowe reappearing in a sequel in hologram form as opposed to heading up a fully-blown prequel, but you never know. Is there the appetite for a Krypton-set movie? Tell us your thoughts in the comments…
