New Superman Trailer Well-Received at Comic-Con

Director Bryan Singer debuted the new trailer for his Superman movie at Comic-Con and received a standing ovation. The trailer’s surprises:

The character of Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) appears to have a child with a character named Richard White, played by X-Men‘s James Marsden; the voice-over featured the voices of Marlon Brando as Jor-El and Susannah York as Lara, from Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman film; and the score will incorporate John Williams’ famous theme from Donner’s film.

The Superman Returns trailer features shots of the Kent farm in Smallville and a scene of Clark Kent (Brandon Routh) and Jimmy Olsen (Sam Huntington) in a bar, with Jack Larson as the bartender (Larson played Jimmy Olsen in the original 1950s TV series, which starred George Reeves). The trailer also features images of a deco-flavored Metropolis and ends with Superman (Routh) zooming from space back to Earth. Superman Returns is still in production, with an eye to a June 30, 2006, release.
