Russell Crowe Doesn't Think He'll Be Back For ‘Batman vs. Superman’ (Video)

Crowe played Superman's dad, Jor-El, in Zack Snyder's “Man of Steel”

Russell Crowe has bad news for anybody who loved his role as Superman's biological dad, Jor-El, in “Man of Steel.”

The actor told Yahoo! Movies while promoting “Noah” overseas that he doesn't think he'll be in director Zack Snyder's “Batman vs. Superman” movie.

“I don't think they're going to use me again,” Crowe told the news outlet during a press junket (above) in the United Kingdom. ”I think they're jumping onto a different stream. You know, they're going with the different superhero worlds colliding.”

Crowe played a major part in Warner Bros.’ 2013 Superman reboot. He carried the origin story's action-packed opening sequence on Krypton, and appeared as a hologram later on to help Lois Lane (Amy Adams) escape from the clutches of General Zod (Michael Shannon).

Now that Warner Bros. biggest blockbuster hero, Batman (Ben Affleck), is on board to battle the son of Krypton (Henry Cavill), it makes sense that there won't be much room for Jor-El in what must already be a jam-packed plot.

“Batman vs. Superman,” which is only a working title for the “Man of Steel” sequel,” hits theaters on May 6 in 2015.

    Do you know why jobs
    continue to leave liberal states for conservative ones? Because conservatives
    and conservative states are business friendly. As long as black people continue to complain about life
    (just like Arabs continue to complain about America) they will continue to
    suffer, leave their families, drop out of school, not accomplish much, and not
    focus on being successful.

    Facts:Obama Admin request airspace approval from Libya to help our guys.Security
    Team is delayed at airport, they had to fly into an airport and try to find a
    ride to the embassy/CIA. Backup teams in place and ready to react.Nothing
    happens, our guys get slaughtered.

    Obama dispatches propagandists for 2 weeks on morning shows to cover this up
    and blame on video – because he knows this would not be acceptable to the
    American people.My Conclusion: Libya did not grant airspace approval, we
    did not want to offend Libyans or cause possible civilian casualties so we
    sacrificed the lives of our guys. We also did not provide adequate protection
    when we knew or should have known it was not enough to begin with. And we have
    not done anything about it until this date.

    The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest
    calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $17.4 trillion.

    It's the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

    The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of
    George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during
    Mr. Obama's four-year term.
