IESB: I know Paul Levitz from DC said recently that he still has hopes that even if there is some kind of mild reboot or the sequel to RETURNS they definitely want you back. Has there been any recent conversations with the DC or Bryan [Singer] or anybody?
BR: Well, the most recent conversation I had was with Paul when I was in New York and we talked about what they are Warner Bros. were thinking and what the situation was and obviously, thankfully, he is still wanting me to be a part of it and I certainly want to be a part of it.
IESB: That's what he said that they are looking forward to bringing you back and we know Bryan has signed on to do it, I don't think that gets enough mention in the press that Bryan has signed on to do the sequel. Have they given you a time frame at all of maybe when?
BR: No, I don't have a time frame. I haven't really heard the studio's stance, I've just heard what's in the media and that every time I see somebody from Warner Bros. they tell me that they are working on it and are going to figure it out soon. But that's about the answer I get.
IESB: A lot of people don't think Superman can be that dark, or that you could make such a dark Superman film.
BR: I don't know, I don't think the character necessarily has to be darker, I think he is kind of dark in a sense, emotional dark, in Superman Returns, and the movie as a whole was slightly dark, they could have had more prowess in it I suppose, and I think that's one thing that can be done in the sequel, so I don't know how much darker you want to make it necessarily. You make the stakes higher, you make the villain darker, I think that's a way to do it. But I don't think Superman himself needs to be darker. He definitely has to struggle, how does Superman be a part of the world? And does he have to make sacrifices to be a part of that world? To fit in and what purpose does he really play in the world? Those are all kind of dark places to explore. But, I don't think Superman should ever be dark and brooding, that's not is nature. And that's now what people what to see. Like Brainiac or something like that, a situation when the villain is...
