The Full Scoop on ‘Superman Returns’

Premiere Magazine offers a fairly in-depth look at Superman Returns.

There are some minor story spoilers, so if you’re looking to go in totally clean, don’t click the link. But the movie won’t be ruined if you do.
I have never been so simultaneously excited and terrified for a movie. I trust Bryan Singer implicitly and the teaser hit exactly the right tone and look, but tying this movie to the first two originals and giving Lois Lane a kid? Risky.

And I still don’t like the “S” on the belt.


  1. I’m not a fan of the costume — colors or the size of the s-shield.

    I agree with you, though Conor. I am terrified that it is going to be very bad, but I want it to be so very good.

    Lois having a kid was the thing that really began irking me.

    I respect Christopher Reeve, but I think they should have started with a clean slate with this new movie.

  2. I like the costume, except for the belt. It’s closer to the original 1940s suit.

  3. This is going to be completely uncharacteristic of me, but I’m fairly positive about this movie. Singer tells a good story, and I don’t mind changes in characters provided it works with the story.

    And I like the look, though I wish he wasn’t wearing a cup.

  4. So Max Fischer is Clark Kent?

  5. You say that like it’s a bad thing. *grins*

  6. Apparently, this happened at the Golden Globes:

    Brandon Routh, who plays the Man of Steel in the upcoming Superman Returns, and Teri Hatcher, who played Lois in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, presented the award for best supporting actress in television.

    Before presenting the award, Hatcher told Routh that she had a “little experience in the genre” and could provide him tips, and then gave him Clark Kent’s trademark glasses to put on.
