Trivia: 'Superman Returns'

For today's trivia we'll be looking at the 2006 blockbuster 'Superman Returns', directed by Bryan Singer. The plot follows the Man of Steel as he tries to stop Lex Luthor, who wants to use Kryptonite to flood the Earth for real estate purposes. Supes is played Brandon Routh. The role was supposed to turn the unknown actor into a mega-star, but since you're probably thinking; “Who?”, that obviously didn't work out, as 'Superman Returns' didn't become the hit Warner Bros. had hoped for. One of the reasons Routh was cast was because he looked a bit like Christopher Reeve, the actor who played the role in the nineteen seventies and eighties movies.
