PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Clark Kent, one of the last of an extinguished race disguised as an unremarkable human, is forced to reveal his identity when Earth is invaded by an army of survivors who threaten to bring the planet to the brink of destruction.
The flying animal Jor-El rides is named Haraka, which means "fast" in Swahili.
Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Lor-Em: Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Anyone who lives in Kansas (or any other state in "Tornado Alley") is taught that hiding under a bridge or an overpass in the middle of a tornado is likely suicide because of the uncontrollable debris fields & random possible funneling effects, which makes the winds even stronger, sucking people out to certain death. Jonathan Kent would have known this, and it is unthinkable he would tell others to hide under the nearby overpass.
The film title and the Superman shield briefly appear in the closing credits (in parallel to all the other Superman films where they appear in the opening credits).
