After an almost twenty year absence from the big screen, the Man of Steel makes a comeback in Superman Returns. The original, Superman The Movie, was released in 1978 and is considered the grand-daddy of all superhero movies, spawning 3 sequels all starring the late Christopher Reeve. Superman Returns is loosely based on the first two Superman movies with the current version taking place about five years after Superman 2 has taken place. The plot involves Superman/Clark Kent having left earth after Superman 2 and returning several years later only to find out that the world has managed without him and Lois Lane has moved on with her life.
A young unknown actor named Brandon Routh (as in mouth) takes on the dual roles of Superman and Clark Kent. Kate Bosworth portrays Lois Lane and the excellent Kevin Spacey plays the evil Lex Luther.
