In 2006, Warner Bros. released this Superman Returns: The Official Movie Guide book. This 128 page soft cover book contains a plethora of promotional and behind-the-scenes photos as well as concept artwork.
The cover features a bold image of Brandon Routh as Superman (with an inset as Clark Kent) and also features insets of James Marsden as Richard White, Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane, Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, Parker Posey as Kitty Kowalski and Frank Langella as Perry White.
In the introduction, when speaking about the proverbial “torch” that was carried, director Bryan Singer said, “Eventually it will be passed to someone else, and like me, they’ll quickly realize how heavy it is. But also like myself, they’ll have the support and strength of not just the artists around them, but all those who came before.”
