The UnPopular Opinion: Superman Returns

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Welcome back to The UnPopular Opinion! The UnPopular Opinion features different takes on films that either I hated, but that the majority of film fans loved or vice versa. We have always hoped this column will promote constructive and geek fueled discussion. Now, with us entering the visual world, you can get pissed off in a whole new medium. Each episode is written and narrated by yours truly and masterfully edited by Matthew Hacunda.

In the wake of DC FanDome, fans are ecstatic about all the new properties featuring their favorite superheroes. In the annals of comic book movies, Superman looms large. While we wait for MAN OF STEEL to get a proper sequel, I decided to take a look back at the legacy of Clark Kent's alter ego. Revisiting Bryan Singer's underrated SUPERMAN RETURNS, I propose why it is actually one of the best Superman movies of all time. Check out the video above and see if you agree!

Oh, and if you have any suggestions for The UnPopular Opinion I’m always happy to hear them. You can send along an email to [email protected] or spell it out in the comments below. Provide me with as many movie suggestions as you like, with any reasoning you'd care to share, and if I agree then you may one day see it featured in this very column!
