This was on IESB, before being taken down. It's been on Kryptonsite, but may not be now. I got this off the Highlander boards. [hl=black]Source: IESB Superman Returns Story Details Author: Robert Sanchez Just before the holidays we received this email from a very reliable source that spoils the hell out of Superman Returns. So Major Spoiler Warning people! Only proceed if you are ready and willing. I have broken up the email in three parts. I have been privy to most of this information and even more and I have to tell you that so far it appears to be right on. Some of this is old news and some of it has not been leaked to the net. Here you go, you have been warned Major Spoilers Ahead! Hey Robert I wanted to share a few things with you regarding Superman Returns. These things might be known but if they are I have not seen it anywhere. I can't tell you how I saw/read this but here are some highlights. First off, an astronomer is able to see the remains of Krypton and its big news. Not very clear but enough to see that the remains of the planet of Krypton are in pieces. Clark Kent/Superman finds it necessary to find out if there are any survivors or is he truly the last son of Krypton. Superman goes to the Fortress of Solitude and ?grows? himself a crystal ship and decides to travel to his home planet. But here is where the problem arises, Superman is scheduled to testify against Lex Luthor but by him leaving the planet the state has to release Lex and drop all charges. Superman leaves and does not tell anyone, including Lois Lane. Lois Lane becomes angry at Superman during his absence and starts writing editorials about Superman, ?The World Does Not Need Superman? type of stuff. As a big fan of real estate, Lex ambitiously plans to make big bucks while Superman is away. Lex Luthor knowing the location of the Fortress of Solitude decides to pay Superman a house call. It's obvious that Superman is not home. The Fortress of Solitude has a hole in the roof the shape of the Crystal Space Ship that is now en route to Krypton. Lex is free to raid this abandoned home. Lex Luthor raids the entire Fortress and most of its secrets. It's not just collecting trinkets but the technology that he is after. It's been some time, maybe even years, and Superman is finally arriving to his home planet of Krypton. He is not dressed in your traditional blue, red and yellow costume but instead a platinum colored suit without a cape. What he sees shocks him. There remains large pieces of the planet intact floating in space. We even see the large white Dome that we are so familiar with from the first Donner film floating in space. But as he gets closer he realizes that he is not feeling well. The explosion has created giant pieces Kryptonite. Actually, most of the remains of the planet are almost all Kryptonite. Instead of fleeing he decides to see the remains of his home planet. His ship flies through some giant canyons. He finds these giant statues that resemble the Argonaths from the Lord of the Rings movies. These statues are from past leaders of Krypton. These statues resemble the leader of Krypton that we first saw in the first Superman film. Superman is finally content that he visited his home world and realizes that he is indeed the Last Son of Krypton. While Superman was away Lex has been able to study all the Kryptonian technology that he stole from the Fortress. He is getting ready to start implementing his plan, to create a new continent. The world has continued to live without its hero. It has been able to withstand wars, terrorists attacks and countless other tragedies. Lois Lane has also continued on with her life. She is in a very serious relationship with Richard White who is portrayed by James Marsden and she is the mother of a young child. The big question is who is the father? Superman comes back home after being away for a few years. There is a private space shuttle launch that the whole world is watching. It's a Virgin shuttle on top of a large 777 type plane.
