And his Superman takes itself quite seriously, especially in the first half. It’s got this pathos and beauty to it. I haven’t watched the movie since I made Superman Returns – when you’ve lived and breathed something like that for a while, you’d rather see something new. But I will always love Superman: The Movie. I think it’s a beautiful story – even something as absurd as spinning around the Earth to turn time backwards!
