Sounds Like Comics Ep 62 - Superman Returns (Movie 2006) by That Film Stew Podcast published on 2019-12-13T03:55:11Z "The son becomes the father, and the father becomes the son". And with those words, the lagacy of Christopher Reeve's Superman returns. Directed by Bryan Singer, Superman Returns is the sixth and final film in the original Superman film series, serving as a sequel to Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980) - disregarding the other sequels and Supergirl film. That Film Stew's Luke and Comiczone's Jae return to a time before shared comic book movie universes. A time where Superman was closer to his Reeve past than he was to his Cavill future. Superman (Brandon Routh) returns to Earth after a five-year absence. He finds that his love interest Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) has moved on with her life, and that his archenemy Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) is plotting a scheme that will destroy Superman and the American continents.
