Up, Up and awry

You won’t be­lieve a man can fly

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Time Machine Superman Returns -

Be­ing Su­per­man on-screen sounds like a whole lot of fun, but – like play­ing James Bond – it comes with a cer­tain amount of phys­i­cal dan­ger. Film­ing a fly­ing scene in which Su­per­man re­unites with Lois Lane on top of the Daily Planet building, the har­ness hold­ing Routh sent him crash­ing nois­ily into a rafter in the stu­dio ceil­ing. Since the scene was still be­ing shot, Routh stayed quiet, lead­ing the crew to freak out at the pos­si­bil­ity that they had badly in­jured their sup­pos­edly in­de­struc­tible su­per­hero. For­tu­nately he turned out to be fine.
