Actor Russell Crowe will not be reprising his role as Superman's father in the Man Of Steel sequel.

However, Crowe believes his time as Jor-El - a role previously played on the big screen by Marlon Brando - will not be back for the sequel, because of the new direction the film is taking.

He tells Yahoo Movies, "I don't think they're going to use me again. I think they're jumping onto a different stream.
