FOLLOWING a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel is coming back to Earth in the epic action-adventure tale Superman Returns.A relative unknown, Brandon Routh, successfully pulls off the unenviable task of filling the shoes - or should that be the dodgy red pants - of the late Christopher Reeve, the man who originally brought Superman to the big screen.Kevin Spacey plays Superman's nemesis Lex Luthor. While Luthor plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realisation that the woman he loves, Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bittersweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the furthest reaches of outer space.
