Stars: Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, Kevin Spacey
After winning the tiresome battle against planet Krypton’s vicious villains, the man of steel is ready to head back to earth—ending the six-year AOL to assume the Clark Kent character and well, to hook up with the lovely Lois Lane. Unfortunately, the welcoming is far from grand. Much to his dismay, the love of his life has already acquired misis status—with ring, hubby, and baby in hand. And as if the unrequited story ain’t sweepin’ enough, longtime archenemy Lex Luthor, who’s just served his bar sentence, is setting up another scheme against the cape-man. But Superman’s worry list seems to get even longer. Aside from constantly trying to prove himself to a city that has learned to live without his hero charity, Superman also has a whole world to save.
- Elisha Cuthbert, Claire Danes, Mischa Barton, Keira Knightley and Kerri Russel were also considered for the Lois Lane role.
- Brandon Routh had to gain 20 pounds of muscle for the film.
- When Singer became interested in possibly hiring Routh, he arranged for them to meet in a coffee shop. When they met at their table, Routh stumbled and spilled hot coffee all over the table. But the incident convinced Singer that Routh could pull of the clumsy, bumbling Clark Kent.
