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.
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?
As Superman and Lois are in the desert, with the military a short distance off, waiting for Zod to arrive, a sonic boom is heard (identified as such by the subtitle), and Superman announces that Zod is arriving. A sonic boom is only created by something traveling faster than the speed of sound, so no sound from such a source would be heard before the source arrives.
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).
