Superman projects put on hold by DC Entertainment

"We don't have any current plans..."

After years of Warner Bros trying to get another Superman movie off the ground following Returns, DC Entertainment is now saying that it doesn't have current plans for the character.

It's surprising, given that for years the iconic superhero has been on of DC and Warners' biggest cash cows, but not shocking given the troubles that have plagued a new solo outing and The Justice League.

"We actually don't have any current plans for Superman," DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson tells MTV.

"We've obviously done a lot of great things behind the property in our history, and it's a key part of the family, but we don't have current plans behind Superman."

Yet we doubt that it'll stay that way for too long - he's too valuable to leave on the subs bench - but perhaps it signals that once again the new mega-company is trying to figure out how best to use him...

      Guys, it's cool. Smallville starts back on the 26th. It's going to be bad a*s. Like Batman Begins bad a*s.

      Routh was amazing, he looks exactly how Superman/Clark Kent should. He even looks likes he is a relation to Christopher Reeve. I cannot understand why he has not been brought back for the 2011 Superman movie? It just doesn't make any sense? Everyone knows we all get attached to certain actors for certain roles but yet hollywood keep changing them and disapointing the most important people, us the film fan! The best thing they could do is release the Brit and Re-Hire Routh as Superman for the sake of this great comic book character and future of the Superman movies! 'Routh For Superman, No one else please'!....
