Latino Review posts that David Goyer (“Batman Begins”) has been hired to write the Superman reboot, which the site says will be called “Man of Steel.”   According to Latino Review, it will hearken to the John Byrne era of Superman comics, will feature Luthor and Brainiac, and will not star Brandon Routh.

All of this is still conjecture at this point, but makes for interesting speculation.  In a recent Nerdage post, more than 80 percent of readers were in favor of Routh returning to play Clark Kent/Superman in the new Superman film, however, it always seemed to be a long shot that it would happen.  I’d say Routh isn’t absolutely out until a new casting announcement for Superman is made, however – and I imagine we’re still months away from that happening.
