Russell Crowe says he's open to 'Man Of Steel' prequel

Russell Crowe has hinted that he would consider starring in a prequel to Man Of Steel.

Since its release on June 14, Man Of Steel has raked in a massive $586 million (£393 million) at cinemas worldwide. A sequel was apparently given the go-ahead shortly before the film was released, with both director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S Goyer set to return.
