Up, Up and awry
You won’t believe a man can fly
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.
