SUPERMAN RETURNS UPDATE

Kevin Spacey, who plays Lex Luthor in Superman Returns, didn't actually see the movie until its premiere last Wednesday.

"I was very excited to see it," Spacey said during an appearance on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday night. "I think what Bryan (Singer, director) has done is he's both made a film that feels like it's a continuation of the original Donner films -- we've kind of ignored parts 3 and 4, so it picks up five years after part 2 -- but it also feels like a whole new (film).

"More mature...they've grown up, all these characters."

In other Superman Returns news:

* The Continuum today continues its series of interviews from the Superman Returns press junket with Paul Levitz of DC Comics.

In addition to Superman Returns, Levitz talks about other DC properties in development as motion pictures.

* James Marsden, who plays Richard White, was a guest on CBS' The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Friday. Marsden has had a big summer, also playing Cyclops in X-Men: The Last Stand.

* QVC will devote an hour to Superman on on Monday, July 3 at 3 p.m.
