Superman Returns Trailer

The new trailer for Superman Returns is available (Quicktime). Apparently the premise is: he was gone for awhile, now he's back. Observations:

  • Perry White asks: "Does he still stand for truth, justice, all that stuff?" All that stuff? Could director/writer Bryan Singer possibly be such an asshat?

  • Kevin Spacey plays Lex Luthor. Or, actually, he seems to be imitating Gene Hackman playing Lex Luthor. Which isn't the worst possible thing he could do, but, darn it, couldn't Kevin Freakin' Spacey come up with a fresh take?

  • On a possibly related note, they're also apparently recycling the John Williams score from the 1978 movie.

I dunno, this might be a "eh, wait for the DVD" summer blockbuster.
