With Zack Snyder's 'Superman' reboot dominating the headlines lately (hurray for casting news!), it seems like the perfect time to take a look back at Bryan Singer's 2006 attempt to relaunch the franchise: 'Superman Returns,' which is exactly what the filmmaker did during a recent interview with website Voices From Krypton.

The director was unusually candid in discussing his 2006 rebooting of the franchise, which earned $200 million at the box office but still didn't recoup its production budget. Singer talks at length about what his vision was for the film, how that may not have jibed with what comic fans were expecting and why being too much of a fan of a specific property can make you less qualified to adapt it. Hit the jump for some of the highlights.
