There is a dedication in the closing credits to Christopher Reeve and Dana Reeve.

The opening credits are seen in a trip through space, from Krypton to Earth, in a manner reminiscent of the Superman (1978) opening credits sequence.

When the Warner Bros logo appears, the opening bars of the John Williams "Superman" theme are heard.

The DC Comics logo is shaded blue and contains two comic-book images: a shot of Clark Kent removing his glasses, and the iconic image of the S logo under Clark's shirt.

The credits contain this statement: "Clarke's Third Law - Profiles of the Future (1973) by Sir Arthur C. Clarke which is a reference to the paraphrasing of the law ["Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"] twice in the movie.

In the opening credits, Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth's credits are seen in red, while the rest of the credits are blue.
