"Superman Returns" actor Brandon Routh is playing a hero -- but this time he is not wearing a cape and a brightly colored suit. He is now part of the cast of NBC's "Chuck." His character is the new boss and teacher for novice spy Chuck (Zachary Levi). But, like all of the other characters on the series, Routh's role has secrets that'll be revealed slowly. "He's a good spy, but very different from Superman," Routh says during an interview on the set of the series. Those of you waiting for Routh to suit up again as Superman better get used to him playing different roles.

The New Orleans-set "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" brings vampires, werewolves, zombies, detective noir and spoofy comedy together for a murky genre gumbo with barely any flavor. Based on a globally popular Italian comic book series by Tiziano Sclavi, director Kevin Munroe's structural mess of a movie stars Brandon Routh as the title character, a human private eye embittered by past dealings with the city's hiding-in-plain-sight undead. When a wealthy importer's murder shows lycanthropic leanings, Dylan gets pulled back into the city's creature corners — and pitted against a vampire kingpin (Taye Diggs)
