I’d like to know more about Brandon Routh, the latest Superman. Does he have any other movies planned?

—D. Martin, Bartlesville, Okla.

Routh, 28, brought vibrant new life to the Man of Steel in the 2006 movie Superman Returns. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, he grew up reading Superman comics and performed in community theater after graduating from the University of Iowa. Married to actress Courtney Ford, he expects to slip into the Superman outfit for another film that’s projected to begin production next year. In the meantime, you can see Routh on the big screen in Miss Nobody, Lie to Me and Stuntmen, and on television this summer in the “Community” episode of NBC’s new series Fear Itself.
