* PlotHole: Stealing a chunk of Kryptonite? Fine. Shaping it with Earth tools? I don't think so.

* PlotHole: PlotHole:
** The large crystal meteorite that accompanies Supes' return to Earth. It's never brought up in the movie why he would make the effort of bringing such a huge part of his planet with him, and apart from him saying that he hid it afterwards, it's never mentioned again. Only when you rifle through the deleted scenes do you find out that the thing is actually the crystalline spaceship he used to travel to Krypton and back, and that it was too critically damaged to perform a proper landing upon his return.

* SchrodingersCanon: Superman Returns ignores the events of ''Film/SupermanIII'' and ''[[Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace IV]]'', considering itself a direct sequel to SupermanII. So, one can choose to believe that, after Superman II, the films got DenserAndWackier and ended up with Superman fighting Nuclear Man on the moon, or that Clark Kent left Earth for a decade or so and [[spoiler: had a son with Lois Lane.]]

After the ''Film/{{Superman}}'' film franchise languished in DevelopmentHell for years (following the failure of ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace''), '''''Superman Returns''''' brought the Man of Steel back to the big screen in 2006. Bryan Singer, who directed the first two ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' films, crafted ''Returns'' as both a sequel and an homage to ''Film/{{Superman}}'' and ''Film/SupermanII'' -- while also [[CanonDiscontinuity ignoring]] ''Film/SupermanIII'', ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace'', and (probably) ''Film/{{Supergirl}}''.

Franchise/{{Superman}} (Creator/BrandonRouth) returns to Earth five years after leaving to search for remnants of Krypton in deep space; in the time between Superman's departure and return, ComicBook/LoisLane (Kate Bosworth) won a Pulitzer Prize for the article "[[WomanScorned Why the World Doesn't Need Superman]]" (ouch!), and the world has moved on in his absence. Superman has to deal with the ambivalent reaction toward his return, work on mending his relationship with Lois, and foil the latest deranged scheme by a newly-resurfaced ComicBook/LexLuthor (Creator/KevinSpacey).

* RegionalRedecoration: Lex Luthor's plan in ''Superman Returns'' involves creating an entirely new continent in the Atlantic utilizing Kryptonian technology. This will destroy most of North America and cause cataclysmic damage to the rest of the world. He intends to force them to turn to him as a savior.
--> '''Luthor:''' You can print money, manufacture diamonds and people are a dime a dozen, but people will always need land. It's the one thing we aren't making anymore.
