Director Bryan Singer’s update on the Man of Steel leads a huge holiday rush of "Superman" DVD releases. "Superman Returns" follows in the spirit of the first two films that starred Christopher Reeve as the orphaned Kryptonian who becomes a crusader for truth and justice on Earth. The new film stars Brandon Routh as Superman and his mild-mannered alter ego Clark Kent, newly returned from a quest to find the remnants of his home planet and faced with fresh twists in his romance with Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) and his ongoing battle with Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey).
The movie comes in a single-disc version with just the theatrical release, a two-disc set well-stocked with extras and in high-definition format on a Blu-ray disc and a combination HD DVD disc that also includes the regular DVD version. A big batch of deleted scenes leads the DVD extras, including some extra moments between Clark and his adoptive mom (Eva Marie Saint). There’s also a marathon making-of documentary.
