Should I watch Superman 1-4 before Returns?
I've borrowed Superman Returns from my local library, because that was the only one available, but I'm wondering should I watch the first 4 before I go onto SR? Am I going to be confused in any parts of SR if I haven't seen 1-4? Or does Returns stand on it's own quite well? Please let me know as soon as possible.
watch superman 1 and donner's cut of 2.. watch 3 for the clark kent/superman fight and nothing else.. watch 4 for its awesome chessy goodness.. then return that dvd to your library and watch clips of superman returns on youtube.. then watch man of steel til your eyes dry..
i recommend not watching any of them unless you enjoy movies with massive plot holes.
supes in these movies is very fluffy and gets emasculated in his day job by an idiot who can't recognize him with a pair of glasses on.
if you're new to superman, then just watch man of steel.

Superman I is still must see viewing. Superman II, try to find the Richard Donner Director's Cut. Superman III isn't as bad as some say, it's kind of fun. Avoid Superman IV. Superman Returns is a worthy movie, even though it fawns very heavily at the feet of I.
