COMING THURSDAY

Superman news -- and much more!!!

SUPERMAN RETURNS UPDATE

Brandon Routh, who stars in the title role in Superman Returns, said he is encouraged by early response to the film.

Routh snuck into a theater on Tuesday night to watch the film with an audience.

"It was very cool to see that they were reacting the same way that people did who were obliged to clap and cheer," Routh said on CBS' The Early Show on Wednesday. "They all clapped and cheered and laughed at the same things, and some things that I hadn't heard people laugh at, they laughed at.

"It was awesome knowing it was getting the same response from fans."

The film will have the widest release in Warner Bros.' history with 4,065 theaters by Friday. Superman Returns is projected to pass $100 million by July and fare better than Batman Begins did last summer.

In other Superman Returns news:

* USAOPOLY has provided The Continuum with a first look at the Superman Returns Monopoly game.

The collectorıs edition flaunts the most prominent aspects of the film. Images of Clark Kent, Superman, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane enhance the game board's path allowing fans to relive movie moments. In an attempt to protect the world from Lex Luthor and cataclysmic destruction, players advance from space to space, making super heroic decisions that risk love and power, and build up the most valuable real estate with Crystal Shards and Crystal Structures.

The game features customized pewter tokens such as Superman, Superman's Boot, S-Shield, Superman's Glasses, the Daily Planet Globe and Kryptonite.
