We got our hands on the notes that studio executives sent to Bryan Singer after reading the first draft of his script for Superman Returns. From the sound of it, we're lucky Mr. Singer listened to their suggestions.
Bry guy! Really dug the script. I think you've got it headed in a fresh direction that' really going to work for us. That being said, there were a couple of things that we thought were a little "out there," that we might want to tweak. Page 15-
We were a little surprised by the revelation that Superman is not only vulnerable to Kryptonite, but high auto insurance rates as well. I liked how you brought it full circle when Clark Kent is rescued by the gecko from those Geico commercials, but we might want to rethink the whole sequence. Also, we're not ones to turn down product placement dollars, but it
a little jarring to learn that Superman not only draws his power from the sun, but from Gatorade as well. Can this come out? Page 45-
The scene where Superman fights the Soggies really has nothing to do with the rest of the film. I'll admit that it' heart stopping when the Soggies almost kill him, and a moment of triumph when Cap'n Crunch shows up and sends them to a bloody, yet crunchy grave, but we're just not sure how much this adds to the overall narrative.
