actor Brandon Routh
refuses to be frightened by the notorious Superman curse. The superhero saga has seemingly been plagued by bad luck - as well as a string of incidents affecting crew members. George Reeves
, the original TV Superman
, was shot dead at 45, while Christopher Reeve
was paralyzed in a riding accident before dying at the age of 52.
But Routh admits he didn't even know about a curse, and is determined to ignore scaremongers. He says, "Curse? What curse? I don't think in those terms. If something happens to me, I'll deal with it. I'm not going to worry about it."
