Superman Returns was an entertaining attempt at reinvigorating the hero of heroes, throwing him into a 21st century setting, but with a foot planted firmly in the trail left by Richard Lester's 1980 Superman II. Though it was fraught with a rather middling critical reception, it went on to make around $400mil at the box office, but not huge stars of its cast...Kevin Spacey aside, of course. Which is a shame in my eyes.
But eight years after Bryan Singer jumped on board the Krypton Express, destination cinema screens across the world, we've seen the DCCU explode into action. Plans for their back catalog of heroes to duke it out on cinema screens have been firmly set in motion. But we cannot forget Brandon Routh's attempts at making wearing pants on the outside of your tights look pretty cool.
Saying that, I wonder what the cast are up to now...
Brandon Routh - Superman/Clark Kent
Did you know that Routh won a costume contest, dressed as Superman/Clark Kent, at a Halloween party a year before being cast?
Kate Bosworth - Lois Lane
Did you know that Bosworth has the rare disorder Heterochromia iridum, meaning she has different colored eyes? Her right eye is brown, her left is blue!
Kevin Spacey - Lex Luthor
Did you know that Spacey was the artistic director of the Old Vic theater in London, England?
Parker Posey - Kitty Kowalski
Did you know that Parker Posey is a really, very good mime artist?
Tristan Lake Leabu - Jason White
Did you know that the only reason Tristan Lake Leabu wanted to act is so he could emulate his hero, Johnny Depp?
So, whaddya guys think?
