* The reveal that [[spoiler:Superman is a father]] would become a reality when ComicBook/{{Convergence}} revealed that pre-New 52 Superman and Lois now have a son named Jon, who would return to the main DCUniverse when ComicBook/DCRebirth came out.

** If they had kept in the DeletedScene of [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome Superman returning to Krypton]], this would have been the first ''Superman'' film to show Supes traveling to another solar system in his Kryptonian spaceship--finally bringing the interstellar scope of the comic books to the big screen. But despite the ''many'' opportunities for Supes to have adventures in outer space and tangle with aliens, his interstellar journey is quickly glossed over so that he can return to Earth and try to woo back Lois Lane.
* VindicatedByHistory: Yup, it's going in both ways. While overall opinion on the film remains mixed, many fans now look upon it more fondly after ManOfSteel and BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice, noting that while it doesn't deliver what most audiences want (big fights against supervillins), it has more heart and the inspirational spirit that Superman is known for.
* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The film had a budget of $250 Million and every cent can be seen on the screen. From the beautiful opening titles to Superman's incredible rescue of a jet to Superman having a bullet bounce harmlessly off his eye, every scene shines with a quality that shows how much Singer cared. Special mention must go to the scene where Superman lifts an island with shards of Kryptonite mere millimetres from his face. The effects are unanimously stunning. Which only makes the shoestring budget of ''Superman IV'' all the more hilarious in comparison.

** Some theorize that critics let nostalgia of the original Superman films cloud their judgment when reviewing this film.



** According to Singer himself this is why, as a Star Trek fan, he has never approached the Star Trek franchise beyond his one cameo in ''Nemesis'' for fear that he would be "too close" to its mythos to do it right.

* HarsherInHindsight: Seeing the old heiress in her deathbed will now be hard to see, following Creator/NoelNeill's death.

* DeaderThanDisco: Critics nowadays agree with the fan sentiment that ''Returns'' was way too archaic and reliant on the original Superman film plot points.

** The premise of the film. Either it's a genuinely intriguing WhatIf scenario that [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore seriously shakes up the status quo of the Superman mythos]], or it's just another half-assed excuse to revisit cinematic characters [[Film/SupermanII from 1980]] instead of telling a new story.



* BrokenBase: The fanbase was (and remains) divided over this movie. While numerous fans saw ''Returns'' as a sincere ode to the earlier films, others were dismayed that the film didn't use any material from the more modern comics (given that the earlier films and their Silver-Bronze Age style Superman characterization was about 20 years out of date by the time this film was made) and completely changed the dynamic of Lois and Superman's relationship. While the film received some good reviews, the overall polarizing reception and underwhelming box office caused plans for a sequel to fizzle out, despite director Bryan Singer promising a more action packed follow up.
