Spacey wants to return as Luthor

Though some internet fans are reacting with fear on what the “Superman” legal ruling will do to the character in comic books and film, for the most part, things continue as per usual.  Kevin Spacey was quoted as saying he’s hoping to return as Lex Luthor in the sequel to “Superman Returns.”

“I believe they are in talks at the moment. I have actually already signed up to do it. So if they decide to go ahead with it and they still want me, then I will definitely be in it,” Spacey told Monsters and Critics.

There’s obviously a lot to still be worked out with the Siegel ruling and how it will impact financial accounting of “Superman” products.  But, for the moment, I would assume both sides want Superman to remain an active, vibrant property.
