What you didn't see in "Superman Returns"

Some critics found “Superman Returns” to be too long; one called it “butt-numbing.”

But for fans who wanted even more, there’s “Superman Returns: The Complete Shooting Script.”

Published by Titan Books, the big attraction is the deleted and unshot scenes sprinkled throughout - some of which will no doubt show up in the DVD. I just got a copy yesterday and have only scanned it. But I've found, for example, scenes of Superman in the spacecraft that took him to Krypton. There’s more of a role for Martha Kent, who adds to Clark's woes by announcing she’s moving to Montana with her new love. And there’s the revelation that Superman’s journey in search of Kryton was the result of scheming by Lex Luthor.
