Real citation: “Superman Returns was very much a "requel" (a term that isn't mine, but I don't recall where I first ran across it) to the 1978 Donner film. Returns even follows the plot structure of the original. As a sequel/homage to the 1978 Donner film, this movie is note perfect (even better than the original nowhere is there a character as annoying as Luthor's henchdoofus Otis)”
