Russell Crowe would consider a Man Of Steel prequel

Open to a Krypton-set story

While Man Of Steel may have polarised both critics and audiences, its mammoth box office take has made a sequel an inevitability.

However, what about a prequel? With Zack Snyder establishing a new vision of Superman’s homeland, is there any scope for a prequel story based around Jor-El?

It’s a question that Russell Crowe has apparently been asked a lot on Twitter, with the Australian star admitting he wouldn’t be averse to the idea.

“A lot of you are asking about a KRYPTON prequel,” said Crowe on the social networking site. “If that's something you feel strongly about let @Legendary pictures know your thoughts.”

The questions continued to come, and when pushed on the matter, Crowe revealed that, “if it came up, I'd give the tights another go.”

We’d say it would be more likely to see Crowe reappearing in a sequel in hologram form as opposed to heading up a fully-blown prequel, but you never know. Is there the appetite for a Krypton-set movie? Tell us your thoughts in the comments…

      There was a novel i read a while back (can't remember who by and can't be bothered to google it!) called 'The Last Days of Krypton' that was a prequel story that i thought was pretty good. I always thought that there could be scope for a film of this sort. Only issue with doing this from a Man of Steel movie view is that the resolution has already been shown. If they'd started a Superman film with Kal being found on Earth straight away and that way have the audience share his experience of not knowing where he has come from or the fate of his race, then it would have meant that there could be scope for a Krypton based prequel to be done.

      I was thinking perhaps they could use Jor-El to narrate the origin of Doomsday.

      This is an interesting idea but other than that, nothing will come of this. If Russell Crowe was paying attention to the news he would have realized that Warner Bros & Legendary Pictures split ways. Their partnership is literally over and Warner Bros owns the film rights to all of the Dc Comics characters, not Legendary pictures. Legendary Pictures is looking for a new film studio to partner up with.
