Kris Humphries is doing super, THANKS FOR ASKING.

5 top pieces of celebrity gossip — from Russell Crowe's scatological problem to the inevitable Choose Your Own Adventure movie

1. Kris Humphries is thrilled that he's finally divorced from Kim Kardashian
After a 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian — and a 582-day divorce — how is Kris Humphries doing these days? According to an interview the Brooklyn Nets player gave at the Man of Steel premiere on Monday, he's better than ever. "I don't have any [girlfriends] right now," said Humphries. "I'm happy. I've got a big smile on my face." If only the rest of us could cut Kardashian out of our lives so easily. [Daily News]

2. Baby Superman pooped on Russell Crowe during Man of Steel filming
As Friday's upcoming Man of Steel shows, Superman has no shortage of powers — including, as it turns out, super bowel movements. "On this movie, I got farted on first. That was okay," said Russell Crowe, who plays Superman's father Jor-El, of the multiple babies who played the superhero as an infant. "Pissed on, that was a little inconvenient." But Crowe said the the real problem came after lunch, when a super-tot delivered "a handful of the essential Kryptonian material" during filming — an element far more potent than Kryptonite.

3. 20th Century Fox is making a Choose Your Own Adventure movie
Despite a central premise that is literally impossible to replicate with existing movie theater technology, 20th Century Fox is reportedly nearing a deal to secure the rights to book series Choose Your Own Adventure, which you might remember from your elementary school library. The series will reportedly be spun into a "cross-platform four-quadrant action adventure franchise," because no project in development can have too many vague buzzwords. If you'd like to go see a movie based on a book series that doesn't even have a singular narrative, wait a few years and see Choose Your Own Adventure: The Movie. If you'd rather live in a world where everything you've ever heard of isn't automatically adapted into a big franchise, good luck finding a portal to a parallel universe. [The Hollywood Reporter]

4. Brad Pitt is sick of zombies, too
If you don't really understand the big zombie craze in film, TV, and video games right now, you have one very high-profile supporter: World War Z star Brad Pitt. "As for why zombies are so popular, I have no idea," said Pitt, who inexplicably decided to star in the upcoming $200 million zombie blockbuster anyway. "The zombies are the threat but the themes are much wider than that." So if you've been waiting for a zombie movie that isn't really about zombies, buy your tickets now! [Express]

5. The Purge 2 is already in development
Last weekend, horror/thriller flick The Purge grossed over $30 million on a $3 million budget, which can only mean one thing: Unnecessary sequel! Producer Jason Blum tweeted that the film is "in development" today, though it's unclear whether any of the cast from the first film will be coerced into returning. The Purge tells the story of a single night when the government declared all crime legal for 12 hours, so the sequel will presumably reveal that the powers-that-be changed their mind and made it two nights, or whatever.
