Re: "Superman Returns" deleted opening sequence to DVD

Without looking it up, I recall looking on Ebert's own site for his review of Singerman because I missed it on his TV show when it was first released. I believe also that shortly thereafter Ebert had his jaw surgery due to cancer I believe & I don't recall seeing his program any more. Well, I'm not quite sure of the time now that I looked up his review but I'd guess now that it was probably about 2008. I'd have to look it up again to give you the full gist but one thing he said I remember did stick with me. It involved the plane rescue.

You'll recall how 'Singerman' struggled to keep the plane from crashing? Well, Ebert found fault with that. To put it in my own words, what he was saying was essentially, "Superman struggles (strains) to stop a plane crash?What?! Isn't he SUPERMAN?! So for 'Superman' it should've been a breeze! Not so for Singerman! And Bryan Singer's 'attempt' at 'Nolan-style' reality may have tried to explain the 'laws of physics' but it came up short in showing who SUPERMAN is. And obviously this point wasn't lost on Ebert.

Everytime I find myself halfway tempted to be impressed by the Singerman airplane catch, I remember this from Superman #233...



Two planes at the same time. Take that, Singerman.

This is why I believe the three strike rule is in effect for the next Superman film. Superman IV = Bad, SR = Bad and if MOS follows the trend that will be three strikes and you’re out… Superman as a movie franchise will be dead and buried.
