I don't see how this even makes sense. I mean, it kind of has to be a direct sequel in this case. If you have the same actor brought back...playing the title role...you can't just ignore what happened in the previous movie and you can't contradict it. That would just confuse audiences all to hell and they would have a right to be. For instance, you can't get rid of the kid; he was practically the main plot point of Returns.
I think audiences would get past their confusion in five minutes. The next director can keep Routh and still "sell" the film as a full or semi- reboot by making it visually different from SR.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be debunked.
