'Scott Pilgrim's' Brandon Routh talks going from superhero to rock star
The former Superman enthused on 'privileges' of hitting a girl
In an interview with HitFix at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Routh joked how he was leaving the film world to pursue music full-time, now that he had a taste of it as Todd Ingram in the forthcoming comic book flick. He also concedes that he gets physical in the film, but instead of punching Pilgrim (Michael Cera), he actually clocks Knives Chau (Ellen Wong).
"I hit a girl in this movie, because I'm a rock star," he sighs. "It's one of the privileges of being a rock star."
Donning an Iowa t-shirt, the 30-year-old actor also spoke on his cohorts and compared his previous Comic-Con experiences. Is being a rock star better than being a superhero? "No, but it has its own perks."
