Now word is Brandon Routh may be back in the film. Meanwhile Bryan Singer said here to MTV about his possible return to the film: "At the moment I can't really talk about that. I wish I could. From my perspective I'm going to take a brief pause. ['Valkyrie'] has taken a long time so I'm going to take a pause. A movie like that takes some time to do right. That's all I can say about that."
