Was originally called "Superhero!", because of the other David Zucker movies Airplane! (1980) and The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988). It was changed to "Superhero Movie" because of the success of Date Movie (2006) and Epic Movie (2007).

In the scene where Aunt Lucille is saying "Rick walked off a class trip" Uncle Albert is reading a newspaper. If you look closely the back page of the newspaper is an advertisement for a book called "Forgiving the Franklins" which is actually a movie (Forgiving the Franklins (2006)) written by Jay Floyd, who is a clearance administrator on this film.
