Re: Superman Returns Soundtrack


You probably know but much of the music in this movie is the Chris Reeve music. It's literally a sequel to Superman 2. Routh is supposed to be Chris Reeve. Kevin Spacey portrays Luthor via Gene Hackman style.
I could'nt find even THAT LITTLE bit out until after I saw the movie! I could'nt access any chatboards where much was said about the movie and WB wasn't saying much at all prior to it's release.

Re: Superman Returns Soundtrack


The entire soundtrack can be heard online via a link from Superherohype

The 4 main "themes" appear in the movie

The Superman Fanfare
Krypton Anthem
Leaving Home (Kent Farm theme)
Love Theme (Can You Read My Mind?)

The songs aren't the exact same as they were in the original. John Williams went back and tweaked them where necessary, but the changes are so subtle its hard to tell.

but there's also new music, especially for the fight scenes and Lex scenes. It all blends together really well.

Is Returns a direct sequel to Superman II? I still can't figure that out. There were a lot more references to Superman than to Superman II. The only parts of Superman II that Returns refers back to are Lex having been in the Fortress before and the... um... surprise at the end. There's no mention of General Zod's attack or of Superman temporarily giving up his powers or of Lois finding out his secret from II.

Re: Superman Returns Soundtrack


  I love the original soundtrack-- I listen to it all the time. I kinda liked how Ottman stretched out certain themes.. but at the same time I was not impressed with the new theme he wrote.. the part of him flying up into the sun. It sounded like something out of the lion king.

  I still want to buy it, but I can't find it.

Re: Superman Returns Soundtrack


If you recall from Superman II, Clark kisses Lois at the end in her office and she forgets that Clark is Superman... or at least I thought that was what happened?

Anyone elses thoughts.

I got the soundtrack from Barnes and Noble. It's great. I like it a lot. I've listened to it four or five times through so far.
