New Superman Returns Pic

Another shot of Brandon Routh as mild-mannered Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent…
Brandon Routh is pictured here as the meek reporter Clark Kent in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns.

The movie picks up the Man of Steel storyline after Superman II and hits theaters June 30, 2006.

Meanwhile, the Superman Homepage talked with composer John Ottman:

Q: The question that everybody wants to know John, apart from the main Superman fanfare, will there be any other parts of John Williams' original score used in Superman Returns?

A: I don't think so. We tried out the Lois Lane theme (Can you read my mind), and, don't get me wrong, its a GREAT theme, but the feel of that theme over this contemporary film, it's gagging, and it's awful. It just seemed stupid. So I'm hoping that we don't have to do that. Just for the moment we're actually temping with (the score from) 'Solaris'. It works really well, and more of it's kind of modern, so the film can go with it. Its important that the film goes somewhere without trying too hard to pay homage to the past. So to answer your question, besides the fanfare, the score will be original.
