A look at "Superman Returns"

Newsweek (via MSNBC) has a visit to the set of Superman Returns:

At a dinner at studio chief Alan Horn's house last summer, Singer pitched his vision for "Superman": the Man of Steel has vanished for five years, then returns to Earth to find that the world is a different place and that his love Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) has a 4-year-old son and a fiance (James Marsden). It's unclear which man is the boy's father, and Lois doesn't exactly give Superman a hero's welcome. She writes a story in the Daily Planet that includes the line "The world doesn't need a savior. And neither do I."

Until, that is, Lex Luthor takes another stab at world domination.

I dunno...IMHO, the Spider-Man movies have seriously raised the bar for superhero flicks. And Singer's X-Men films, while not horrible, didn't excite me. On the other hand, potentially interesting premise. (Where'd Supes go? How'd the world get along with out him?) Guess we'll see how it all works out next summer.
