This unused scene, which cost $10 Million to shoot, would have been the opening to Bryan Singer's Superman Returns but the director chose to leave it on the cutting room floor.. "In the context of this movie where this movie needed to begin and what it needed to be about, I didn’t feel it. It’s just one of those things. No one told me to do it, to make these cuts. I had no time restrictions nor pressure whatsoever. I just felt the movie doesn’t need this, so I did something else instead." The scene is a feature on the eight disc Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology set which is out now on Blu-ray and DVD and features teh following movies and Superman related projects.. Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Superman III, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, Billion Dollar Limited, »

The Superman Motion Picture Anthology Blu-ray review

16 June 2011 1:02 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

It was a time of sex, cynicism and Star Wars - and endless lampoons of the old Batman TV shows. Almost inconceivably, given the era that we live in, there had never been a superhero movie that wasn't cheap, laughable, aimed at kids - or all three. So when Superman producers the Salkind brothers decided to follow up their success of the Musketeers movies with another ambitious two-part movie project, they knew they'd need to throw high-level talent at the first ever serious cinematic account of the Man Of Steel.

Enter Richard Donner, riding a high wave of interest from The Omen; enter Marlon Brando, superstar Gene Hackman, Godfather screenwriter Mario Puzo...enter years of hard-working hell inventing entirely new cinematic processes to make us all believe a man can fly. And enter unknown actor Christopher Reeve, ready to take on the dual role of Clark Kent and Kal-El in what remains a definitive interpretation. »

Superman films getting hi-def Blu-ray treatment

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Can you imagine how amazing Superman’s blue-and-red tights are going to look in high-definition?

As Warner Bros. prepares to reboot the Man of Steel – again – the studio is going back to Superman’s cinematic roots. Not the hero’s black-and-white days. Back to the Richard Donner days, when the director (with Christopher Reeve’s help) took the superhero film franchises to new heights. And they are putting

“Stronger. … Faster. … Sharper!” the Blu-ray clip teases for “Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology.” The package will include

The teaser trailer is heavy on Donner’s original “Superman” and Bryan Singer’s most recent “Superman Returns.” We don’t see a lot of footage from “Superman III” or “The Quest for Peace,” but they are reportedly in the set.
