Host Anthony Desiato digs into the Brandon Routh-starring SUPERMAN RETURNS (2006) with guest Bernie Gerstmayr. They explore how the film—Initially a critical and commercial disappointment—has aged and whether it serves as a fitting coda to the Richard Donner vision of the character.

This is the conclusion to a 5-episode event examining the works and influence of Richard Donner across film and comics. Bernie returns next week for the start of a two-episode examination of the Kingdom Come Superman!
