Superman Returns deleted opening scene photos have premiered. The Superman Returns (2006) deleted opening scene photos star Brandon Routh. The scene showcases Superman visiting planet Krypton and after Lex Luther (Kevin Spacey) and his henchman Stanford (Kal Penn) trick Superman into believing there still may be life on the planet. I read about this omitted plot point years ago and I am surprised I remember it. I am looking forward to seeing this scene. I am sure it will show up on YouTube then quickly being taken down.
This scene will be included in and is an inducement to purchase (or at least rent) the eight-disc Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology. The anthology includes Superman: The Original Theatrical Movie (1978) and Expanded Edition (2001), Superman II (1980 and The Richard Donner Cut), Superman III Theatrical Version (1983), Superman IV The Quest For Peace Theatrical Version (1987), and Superman Returns (2006).
For those unfamiliar with Superman Returns:
Superman Returns is a 2006 superhero film directed by Bryan Singer. It is the fifth and final installment in the original Superman film series and serves as a loose sequel to Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980) by ignoring the events of Superman III (1983) and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)…A sequel was planned for a summer 2009 release, but the project was later cancelled. The Superman series will be rebooted in 2012 with the film Man of Steel and will be directed by Zack Snyder with Henry Cavill as Superman.
