Trivia

When Superman returns Lois to her home, the terrace looks exactly like it did on the set of "Superman" (1978), right down to the plants in the corner. See more »

Goofs

From the air, Lois spots Superman and Doomsday fighting below, and points. It then cuts to Superman and Doomsday battling by some rubble. Cuts to a close up and then back again as Doomsday smashes Superman into the ground, and now the pile of rubble behind them has changed.

As Lois is starting up the helicopter with Jimmy, you can see the seats behind them and how they are designed, lots of lines and not plain, with the seat belts coming out about mid way down. But then as the helicopter is zooming by the camera, you can see now the seats are now plain looking, and the belts come out much higher up. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lex Luthor: Just look at him. So sleek. So powerful. So... beautiful, like some great golden god made flesh. Of course, any sensible god would demand absolute obedience in return for his favor. But, no, our Man of Steel protects us, with no strings attached. The people? Hmph. They practically worship him anyway. Enjoy your reign while you may, Superman. For surely as night follows day, there comes a time when even gods must die.

Finally a good animated superhero feature
20 September 2007 | by membership-7See all my reviews

I'm not a fan of Singer's Superman Returns, and sadly the last Superman animated feature "Brainiac Attacks" was so much full of action, that the characters became too pale. But here the action and character scenes are properly balanced. The animated Lex Luther is as always much better than any of the life-action versions. Clancy Brown voice gave Luthor a dangerous tone. I never thought it possible that James Marsters is up to the job to replace him. But he did it well. It's a different Luthor somehow. Much more psycho if you want. Bruce Timm and company did a good movie out of a rather boring Comic series from the 90's. After this I'm looking forward for more Bruce Timm movies. I would also welcome another Batman animated movie as long as it's Kevin Conroys version and not that crappy Batwave series.

Ah yes... this movie is far better than the new Marvel animated features. Only the first Avengers was fine and has to be excluded.
