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, reported Contactmusic.

"I don't think they're going to use me again. I think they're jumping onto a different stream. You know, they're going with the different superhero worlds colliding (this time)," he said.

The highly-anticipated blockbuster, which features Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, is set to hit cinemas in 2016.
