Scott Pilgrim vs the World's Brandon Routh has weighed in on the possibility of the cult classic ever getting a sequel.

Released in 2010, the adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel didn't fare all that well at the box office but went on to find its audience upon a home entertainment release.

Since then, fans have been desperate for an update on what the titular bassist (Michael Cera) has been up to since he beat the seven evil exes of Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Aubrey Plaza, Alison Pill, Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans and Brie Larson also starred.

As much as people are keen to check in with the characters though, Routh reckons it's highly unlikely that the cast and director Edgar Wright will come back together to tell more of that story – despite the filmmaker teasing otherwise recently.

"I mean, I think that's probably a one," the Legends of Tomorrow star told Speedy Comics Con's Geek House Show when asked to rate the chances of seeing a follow-up on a one to 10 scale. "I just don't think Bryan Lee O'Malley, who wrote the books, the wonderful books, is thinking about a sequel.

"Will we see Scott Pilgrim in a different iteration? It could be used, telling a similar story could be done in a different way, I suppose. I don't know about a sequel."

That's not to say he wouldn't be game personally, however.

"I'm on board, absolutely on board," Routh said. "The success of the movie that we did, and it's certainly gained a lot more popularity and fan cred over the teen years since it came out, so it's got a much bigger audience so I think it'd be at the box office.

"People would be excited about it if they did do one but I know nothing about anything being in the works for a sequel."
