Movie Quote(s):
  • Lois Lane: But millions of people will die! Lex Luthor: Billions! Once again, the press underestimates me.
  • Kitty Kowalski: Wow, that's really something Lex. Lex Luthor: Wait for it. Kitty Kowalski: [long pause] Wow, that's really something Lex. It's freakin' Gone with the Wind.
  • Perry White: Lois, Pulitzer Prizes are like Academy Awards, nobody remembers what you got one for, just that you got one.
  • Lex Luthor: Krrrrryptonite!
  • Police Sharp Shooter: Holy Sh...
Movie Trivia:
  • "Alias" (2001) creator and writer J.J. Abrams wrote a complete shooting draft of the script, which both Brett Ratner and McG were planning to shoot when they both left the project for both creative and budget reasons.
  • Actresses being considered for the role of Lois Lane when McG was to direct included Elisha Cuthbert, Claire Danes and Keri Russell.
  • Kevin Smith's original script, to which Tim Burton was immediately attached, was based on a 1993 story arc in the comic books in which Superman was killed by a creature named Doomsday and then brought back to life more powerful than before. After a lengthy development process, Warner Bros. chose not to go with Smith's script and hired other writers, such as "Alias" (2001) creator J.J. Abrams, to revive the series.
  • When offered the director's chair, Bryan Singer rejected J.J. Abrams script as too far a departure from the source material. Abrams story re-imagined Superman as a Kryptonian prince sent to earth as a baby to avoid an impending civil war between king Jor-El and his brother Kata-Zor. Raised as Midwestern teen Clark Kent, and in love with his high school sweetheart Lois, Superman becomes humanity's defender when Kata-Zor invades Earth, aided by CIA Agent Lex Luthor, who is actually a Kryptonian in disguise. The film ended with Superman returning to Krypton to rule over his people after the death of Jor-El. Singer disagreed with these changes to one of America's most well-known characters, and decided instead to pursue a storyline to act as both a sequel and a re-make which would honor the character's history, as well as the popular films by Richard Donner.
  • Bryan Singer is on record as saying Superman Returns is a loose follow-up to the first two Superman films, but ignores the third and fourth films. This movie contains several oblique references to the original film, including the Addis Ababa meteorite, the photo of Glenn Ford, and Luthor dismissing the question as to whether he'd ever been to the Fortress of Solitude before. Since the Fortress still exists, as does the simulacrum of Jor-El, this film follows on from either the original Richard Lester theatrical version of Superman II, as well as the Richard Donner version. The network TV edit of Superman II ends with Superman destroying the Fortress.
