Brandon Routh & Courtney Ford Expecting First Child

Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford
Superman Returns actor Brandon Routh is set to become a super-dad.

The star's actress wife Courtney Ford is pregnant and due to give birth to the couple's first child this summer.

Routh admits he's delighted to finally be able to share the happy news - because he hated keeping it a secret from the cast and crew of his new TV pilot Partners.

He tells People.com, "It's been so hard keeping the news to ourselves. Everyone on set keeps asking, 'Do you have kids?' and I've had to say, 'Well... not yet!' It's the truth. The baby hasn't been born yet!"

And Ford has been struggling to hide her ...

Why Armie Hammer Should Be Zack Snyder’s 'Superman'

October 21st, 2010 4:30pm EDT
hammer
With all the excitement surrounding the potential announcement of Darren Aronofsky directing the next “Wolverine” movie, fanboys and bloggers have lost sight of the fact that Zack Snyder’s “Superman” reboot still doesn’t have an actor to step into the legendary blue tights. Snyder has already stated that he plans on focusing on the early years of Superman/Clark Kent and does not want to have any connection to the other “Superman” movies (sorry, Brandon Routh).

Snyder, being a very brave and risk-taking filmmaker, is likely to cast someone audiences would never expect, but the actor who wou...

Zack Snyder
Finally some movement on the long turmoiled 'Superman' movie! There has been a lot of speculation and rumors surrounding the next ‘Superman’ installment and what they can do to breathe some fresh air into the franchise. We’ve heard talk of Darren Aronofsky directing, Natalie Portman as Lois Lane and Brandon Routh returning as the Man of Steel again and we know the villain is going to be General Zod but none of the actors have been cast thus far. Well we finally have official word on a least one aspect and maybe the most important one. Yesterday, Zack Snyder ('300' 'Watchmen' 'Sucker Pun...

Jon Hamm Says He's Too Old To Play Superman

September 18th, 2010 3:00pm EDT
Jon Hamm
"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm has laughed off speculation he'll be flying into action as Superman in the superhero's next movie because he's too old to play the Man of Steel.

Brandon Routh was the last actor to portray the comic book icon on the big screen in 2006's "Superman Returns."

"The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan has signed on to produce another installment in the blockbuster franchise, and recent rumours suggested Hamm was being courted to take over the role.

But the actor insists he hasn't been approached by movie bosses - and at 39, he's just too old to play the part.

Stars Of 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' Go Pantsless For GQ (Video)

July 29th, 2010 1:22pm EDT
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Come summer, even your easy-fit workweek chinos can seem heavy, stiff, and constricting. Maybe that's why New York's most discerning dressers have moved on from casual Fridays. Here, the stars of "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, and Chris Evans) show us how to beat the heat while letting it all hang out, in the August issue of GQ.

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is yet another Hollywood comic book adaptation, where the title character (Cera) meets the girl of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and must defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends to win her heart.

India Nominates Sylvester Stallone & Denise Richards For Golden Bananas Awards

Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone and Denise Richards' Bollywood debuts have been panned by critics - they have both received nominations for worst movie performance at India's annual Golden Kela Awards.

The stars appear together in "Kambakkht Ishq" ("Unfortunate Love"), alongside "Superman Returns" actor Brandon Routh and Bollywood regulars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.

But their performances have failed to wow Hindu movie critics and the 2009 romantic comedy has landed them dishonors for the Bollywood equivalent of the Razzies.

An Open Letter To Christopher Nolan On Rebooting Superman

February 17th, 2010 3:38pm EST
An Open Letter To Christopher Nolan re: Rebooting Superman
Dear Chris,

Congratulations on being handed the reins of one of Warner Bros.' most valuable properties, albeit one that seems to cause no small amount of creative consternation. Relax, Mr. Nolan, I'm here to give you and the team you'll select advice on how to handle Superman.

I'm one of many fanboys who was, let's say underwhelmed with Superman Returns. Using Richard Donner's classic 1978 film Superman as a springboard wasn't necessarily a BAD idea, but Bryan Singer and his writers, despite the best intentions, created a movie not exciting and inspiring, but ill-conceived and waaaay...

It must be weird being a celebrity sometimes, particularly after a wax figure is molded to look just like you. And how odd it must be to get face to face with that wax figure.

The following wax figures have been showcased at Madame Tussauds, which first opened over 200 years ago. Visitors are able to get up close and personal with A-list celebrities, sporting legends, political heavyweights and historical icons.

Best & Worst Superhero Costumes

April 30th, 2009 10:11am EDT
X-Men-origins
'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' opens this Friday, and could possibly overturn the all three of the other X-Men movies as the best one yet. Not because the other films forgot that Wolverine was really the star anyway, or because there's only so much CGI that a movie can handle before even the performances seem to look animated, but because this will be the first X-Men film to ditch those dorky black latex costumes that made Professor's Xavier's school look like a front for an underground S&M club. In celebration, StarPulse is taking a moment to remember the superhero fads of yesteryear. The ones...

Brandon Routh Finds A New Superhero

February 23rd, 2009 1:08pm EST
Brandon Routh
Brandon Routh probably won't get to play Superman again given that the studio plans to totally reboot the franchise, a la Batman Begins/The Dark Knight. It seems he's found another comic book character though in Dylan Dog. He is set to star in the film version of Tiziano Sclavi's Italian comic book series in a film from producers Ahstok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello.

"We have a movie called Dead of Night which starts shooting in April with Brandon Routh," Amritraj said. "Kevin Munroe who did Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [TMNT] is directing it. That shoots in New Orleans."

DC Movies vs Marvel Movies: Which Are Better?

June 12th, 2008 10:00am EDT
Dark Knight
After months of anticipation the two candidates are finally ready to square of against one another. There has quite possibly never been such a sharp contrast the American public has to choose between. One candidate possesses the mind of an intellectual while the other uses gut instincts. One maintains a trim and chiseled physique and the other uses brute strength to get his point across. One is a relative newcomer that was born in the early 1960's while one has a long and storied history having been born in the late 1930's. Are we talking about Barack Obama and John McCain? Well… I suppose ...

Hollywood is counting on Superman Returns to end its cash crisis at the box office this summer.
