Superman Returns

Am a little late with this one, so apologies. Finally got round to seeing the Superman Returns teaser trailer.

I have to admit, that about a year ago I was predicting that this movie would probably spell doom for the recent spate of comic book movie adaptations. It's taken over 10 long years since this movie was first announced and the only stories from the studio in those 10 years have been predominately negative. Yet, now I can't help but feel a warm buzz about it. The trailer may only be a teaser, but the classic music, combined with Supermans Daddys narrative does it for me.

So what has made a real difference in the last year? I'm guessing it's Bryan Singer. The moment he was poached from the X-men, things have seemed far rosier for the man with a penchant for red undies.
