    Not sure if anyone reads this Magazine, but I came across a new issue of Script at Boarders today with Brandon Routh on the cover. The writers mostly talked about their inspiration for the script, but there was some tidbits of info on certain things we may see in SR.

    I won't quote the article since it's late but here are some big and/or small details you might find interesting.

    If you don't want to be spoiled then turn away now:

    1.
    The movie opens with a kid reading a Superman comic, talking about his origin and disappearance, as homage to the Action Comics opening of Donner's S:TM

    2.
    The Kent Farm gets sold

    3.
    Ma Kent seems to have moved on and is dating

    4.
    One scene involves Superman has to saving both a shuttle and the plane that launched it at the same time

    5.
    Another involves a Bank robbery where Superman gets shot, but his invulnerability is depicted with a bullet hitting his eye

    The spoilers may not sound like the bigs ones we were expecting but at least we have something we know will be in the film and not just speculation.

    These aren't major and I think most of these are already known!

    #1. Not a spoiler but nice!

    #2. Could be true

    #3. Was confirmed last week!

    #4. I think is wrong...
    the plane is the shuttle!
    That's what all the reports indicated that Virgin Atlantic was a new space shuttle for Commercial space travel!

    #5. Singer stated this probably a year ago!

    Thanks though! :up: I was going to go to Borders tomorrow anyways...now I have 2 reasons! ;)

    I didn't know about the Kent farm being sold, Superman having to save BOTH shuttle and plane, and him getting hit right in the eye!

    I did know about Ma Kent moving on and figured out the comic book style opening from the blogs. I knew about the shooting scene with the gatling gun from the bank roof long ago, but not that he got shot in the eye.

    Which issue of Script is it and is it a new photo on the cover?

    I thought I had the new Script Magazine and it had Silent Hill "girl" on the cover?

    Nope, you're totally wrong: Superman save both a shuttle (Explorer) and a plane (Boeing 777).

    Yeah, the comic-opening has been pretty-much known for almost a year since th blog was released. The bullet-in-the-eye is something I've been wanting to see my whole life though. I really hope it's in the movie.

    Don't worry, I know. The Master's post is absolutely correct.

    Both a plane and shuttle are going to be launched. The shuttle is piggybacked on top of the airplane and the shuttle is called Genesis.

    Whether or not they both are being saved by Superman, I don't know.

    I thought the shuttle made it, but it causes damage to the plane which has to be saved. But then again, why would the ****tle take off from a FLYING PLANE!?!

    Y'know that does sound familiar. I assumed that the shuttle was unoccupied though. That it would just get them to the altitude needed for space travel or something and then dismantle. Good to know! :up:

    It is attached to the plane, that is not uncommon.

    Its not a shuttle, its a newer high altitude/low orbit craft.

    They need to be launched at speed and above a certain height (they lack the capacity to launch from the ground.)

    Not sure, although Branson does have a cameo in the film so I assume its a Virgin craft Superman saves.

    It's a test flight and I think it is based on Virgins new aircraft.

    Well, thats why I said that some of this info may not be big news.

    Well I sure as hell wasn't sure, and even then I don't think it was 100%
    confirmed before it was mention in the mag.

    It's true

    Oh.

    Trust me, it's in the article.

    Where? I know he mentioned something about
    how the FX were going to be used for Supes heat vision

    I'll see if I can find the cover on the net.
