April 14, 2005: More “Superman Returns” Rumors

MovieHole received some information from a scooper who claims to have inside knowledge on certain aspects of "Superman Returns". Here's some of what was reported...

ALERT: Possible Spoilers!

    A couple of days ago The Herald Sun reported a rumor that Brandon Routh might be filming all his scenes in L.A. Not true, it seems.

    "Many of his scenes are being filmed in the Fox studio backlot - which was the whole point they chose Fox (among budget concerns), was because they needed extensive green screen area for the flying sequences. Some of his major scenes have already been filmed and they include the Branson scene where Superman saves the shuttle in space. Think green screen."

    Talking of space shuttles and the like, "...there were some space flight signs on the bustops during last week's filming that give hints about the whole theme of space travel in this film. Lex Luthor is a not only a man with many resources (including financial) but has a stake in space travel... It's a major plot point in the film and part of what lures superman into trouble... so I'm being told."

    The scooper later told me the look of the flick's going to be quite slick - it's being filmed on a HDCAM-SR with newly debuted 'Genesis' Panavision camera and lenses. All digital, in other words.
