If you been lucky enough to catch an advance screening of Kevin Smith's Zack And Miri Make A Porno, you may well be wondering about one particular piece of casting - Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) as a gay porn star.
And it seems Smith is keen on the idea of a gay Superman.
When asked if he cast Routh in the role to send a message to the team behind Superman Returns, Smith said: "I think it was total coincidence, but it really works. Wouldn't that movie be awesome if Superman was out as gay?"
But he's not worried about a Warner Brothers backlash. "I did ask Brandon, of course, after we were done shooting, whether he had a morales clause in his contract that may prevent him from playing a role like this, and he said as long as he didn't play another superhero, Warner Brothers did not care."
Smith added: "They don't care. They've got The Dark Knight."
Maybe that means Smith's aiming for a gay Batman next. Oh, wait, that's Batman & Robin. Never mind.
