Superman Returns.
It had been 28 years since Superman had last appeared on screen and it had not been the best send-off for the original superhero. Languishing in development hell, year after year, it came down to Bryan Singer and his story of Superman returning from five years away from earth to bring the Man of Steel back to theaters. 
In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is join by John Mills and Norman Lao to talk about Superman Returns. We open the show discussing the new Batman V Superman trailer, then talk about our initial response to Singer's Superman film. being back in the Donnerverse, if this movie needs Superman II, the expectations of the audience, the story, 9/11's effect, our favorite scenes, the ending, the big shoes the actors had to fill, music, production value and our ratings.
