    I just finished watch Superman II on SPACE and as we know that is the last line of the movie. Well since Returns takes place after II, does that mean that Supes let the President down again. I'm still not clear on this plot point, do we know why he left?

    Way to keep your promises Clark!

    From everything I've heard he went to see if Krypton was actually destroyed or not.

    Umm...umm...there's a new president when he leaves? :Confused:

    In fact, that must be Superman's reason for leaving! there were all those people who said they would move to Canada if Bush won the election, well Superman took it up a notch and just left the planet! :D

    Mr President: You said you'd never let me down again Superman, for the love of God, why?

    Superman: I wanted to stay, Mr President, and all my fans wanted me to stay, but Bryan Singer made me go. I tried to reason with him, but he threatened to make me wear a god awful Kmart halloween costume. So I had to go, but the bastard didnt keep his word. DAMN YOU, SIINNNGGGEEERRR!!

    I think this means that Superman voted for Kerry.

    It's called "vague history" which has a connection to the previous films but in a vaguely kind of way. It's an "established Superman" film in which there are glimpses of the origin which seems to make it a sequel and yet "vaguely" because it ignores continuity such as: turning back time, Luthor's knowledge of the FOS's location, the mind erasing kiss, Superman letting the President down and so on. It'll be new but, like the suit's \S/, it'll be vague. . . Yes. . . I was being sarcastic.

    I think Vague history should be a curse word, and Singer should have never even said that to us fans. Does he no the confussion he caused with that?

    Superman: I said I wouldn't let YOU down Mr. President. That doesn't apply to those who became President after you. Sorry, I should have been more specific!:)

    In Superman Returns' back story, the Lois and Superman in the Fortress is the only thign from II. So that line Superman says to the President never happened.

    Its been brought up before, and its just another contradiction of the "vague" connection between SII and SR.
