Su­per­man Re­turns GO! 8.30pm, M (2006)

Af­ter a two-decade break from the big screen, the Man of Steel made a flac­cid re­turn to the su­per­hero pro­fes­sion in this ren­der­ing by Bryan Singer ( X-Men,

Valkyrie). The tights-clad saviour (played by Bran­don Routh) re­turns from outer space to Me­trop­o­lis and must re-ad­just to life on Earth af­ter a five-year ab­sence. Su­per­man’s true love Lois Lane (Kate Bos­worth) now has a new beau (James Mars­den) and young son, and an em­bit­tered Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) has set in mo­tion an out­landish scheme to ex­act re­venge on his neme­sis. Bos­worth is woe­fully mis­cast and you get tired of Spacey’s an­tics af­ter five min­utes.
