Superman Returns 4th of July 2006

The Man of Steel has locked up the biggest movie weekend of next year.
Warner Bros. said Superman Returns would debut in theaters June 30, 2006, the lucrative Fourth of July weekend usually dominated by big blockbusters.

The studio also acknowledged that principal photography is underway in Sydney Australia. The official press release lists Brandon Routh as Clark Kent/Superman, Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, James Marsden as Richard White, Eva Marie Saint as Martha Kent, Parker Posey as Kitty Kowalski, Kal Penn as Stanford and Sam Huntington as Jimmy Olsen.

"We are thrilled to have such a stellar cast starring in this exciting and innovative new chapter in the Superman legend," said Jeff Robinov, president of production for Warner Bros. pictures. "With Bryan Singer at the helm, we look forward to creating a film that electrifies audiences and deepens the rich mythology that continues to make Superman one of the most popular and intriguing superheroes of all time."

"Rather than being a remake of the original movie," Singer said, "this film explores Superman's influence on our global culture and the impact of his return to Earth after an absence of several years. It's my great pleasure to bring this new chapter of the Superman legacy to the screen with this incredible cast."
