Best Superhero Movies Ever Made: Superman Returns (2006)

I know what you are thinking, and you’re wrong. Superman Returns is a great film and is an affectionate love letter to film making of days gone by and an amazing tribute to Christopher Reeve’s Superman. what makes this movie so great is that it is fun, beautiful and totally family friendly. Brandon Routh makes a great turn as the man of steel and really captures the hope and love that Christopher Reeve had planted in that role years before. It breaks my heart that Superhero movies have become bland, drab, joyless affairs of late. Superman Returns shows that a superhero can be full of hope.
