LATEST: Kevin Spacey has confirmed he's signed up to play villain LEX LUTHOR in the new Superman movie.

The OSCAR-winning actor will be reunited with his USUAL SUSPECTS director Bryan Singer when he starts work on SUPERMAN RETURNS, which begins filming in March 2005.

Spacey says, "The huge attraction for me was the chance to work with Bryan again. Lex Luthor is a wonderful role."

Spacey's Beyond The Sea co-star Kate Bosworth has already agreed to play Lois Lane in the eagerly awaited blockbuster - which will feature relative unknown Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel.
