Russell Crowe is still crossing his fingers for that Man of Steel prequel.
It’s no secret that the Gladiator star is hoping Zack Snyder puts together a motion picture centered around Jor-El. He previously asked his fans and followers on Twitter to let the studio know there’s definitely interest out there for such an endeavor.
According to Yahoo! Movies, Zack Snyder confirmed that Russell Crowe is still hanging his hopes on that project. During a Q&A session with Kevin Smith, the filmmaker discussed Crowe’s excitement about the prequel. However, that’s as much information about these flicks we’re going to get at the moment in time.
“Now I just want to see Krypton prequels. Plus I would just watch Russell Crow be Jor-El forever,” Kevin Smith said during the Man of Steel event last weekend.
“Hell, Russell, he wants to do it right now… Yeah, he’s like, ‘Let’s do it,'” Snyder said.
The Inquisitr reported over the summer that Crowe was definitely interested in putting together some sort of follow-up to the box office hit Man of Steel. Since he apparently loved playing Jor-El on the big screen, the actor seemed more than a little eager to get a prequel off the ground as soon as humanly possible.
“A lot of you are asking about a Krypton prequel, if that’s something you feel strongly about let Legendary Pictures know your thoughts,” he wrote.
However, asking Russell Crowe about the prequel could possibly unleash his infamous rage. He might have his mind set on playing Jor-El again, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s ready and willing to discuss the project with folks all day long.
“Just getting sick of reading the same question mate. However, if it came up, I’d give the tights another go,” the actor continued.
Unfortunately for Crowe, he may have a while to wait. Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder are presently busy with the highly-anticipated Batman vs. Superman, which both parties hope to have ready by the summer of 2015. Word on the street suggests that Wonder Woman and The Flash could join the adventure before long.
While you’re waiting to see what happens with the Man of Steel follow-up, you can always pick up a copy of the flick on Blu-ray. The movie hit retail shelves earlier this week.
