With his future questionable in the world of Superman movies, actor Brandon Routh has joined the cast of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World."  The movie is based on the Oni Press graphic novel by Bryan Lee O'Malley.  The story deals with the character Scott Pilgrim (played by "Juno"s Michael Cera) trying to win the heart of the girl of his dreams, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead (last seen in "Live Free Or Die Hard").  In order to truly win her over, he must first defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends.  Brandon Routh and Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four" and "Push") are two of those evil boyfriends.

And speaking of Brandon Routh, it seems that the Superman actor ran into Spider-Man's Tobey Mcguire ran into each other thanks to President Obama's call to community action at Abram Simon Elementary.  MTV had a short video clip of the meeting.  Seems that Routh actually found a Spider-Man comic as they were helping to build shelves and walked over to Mcguire.
I think this is yours,” he said, handing Maguire the book. The web-slinger laughed, and the actors shook hands and chatted for a few moments before Routh walked back across the room to shelve “I Can Read: Spider-Man 3, Meet the Heroes and the Villains.

I think I can probably beat them all up,” Routh said. “Just kidding.”

Here's the video but you can't really hear much.
