“Man of Steel” has only been out for a month and fans already want to see Russell Crowe back — but not in a sequel.

Instead, fans have been asking the actor if he’d be up to return in a prequel centered around Superman’s home planet of Krypton.

Crowe took to Twitter to respond to the masses telling them he would gladly reprise his role as Clark Kent’s father, Jor-El. Fans should just let “Man of Steel” production company Legendary know.

In the four weekends since its release, “Man of Steel” has earned an impressive $586.8 million worldwide. 

The latest Superman reboot had the largest debut weekend of any superhero origin movie with a massive $116.6 million haul. 

It also set the June record for highest-weekend opening

There are already talks of a sequel in the works, and hopefully a much-anticipated “Justice League” film down the road.
