As a follow-up of sorts to our Typhoon Longwang story:

The new Superman is indeed a Super Man, say the gossip pages.

London - The new Superman is giving movie bosses a headache - because of the size of his bulge.

They fear Brandon Routh's profile in the superhero's skintight costume could be distracting, reports the Sun. Hollywood executives have ordered the makers of 'Superman Returns' to cover it up with digital effects.

The Sun's source said: "It's a major issue for the studio. Brandon is extremely well-endowed and they don't want it up on the big screen. We may be forced to erase his package with digital effects."

Brandon, 26, has taken over the superhero's cape from the late Christopher Reeve. Wardrobe artists have had to fit him with a special codpiece for the new film out next year. - Ananova.com


Go ahead. Let loose with the wisecracks. You know you want to. Surely we can do something with the phrase "Man of Steel."

I know... would we faint or something? I doubt it.

Funny thing is, if the "bulge" did look unusually large, we would all assume they had padded his costume.

This reminds me of the story I heard about Christopher Reeves during the filming of the original Superman movie. The crew was watching the first set of dailies of Reeves in the Superman costume, and it was a scene where he was flying. And on the big screen, it was bloody obvious that his package was, apparently, switching sides from shot to shot. XD

Yep... *snickersnort* I think they eventually decided that a cup was easier, so he didn't fly around while flying around. :P

Wow. I mean. Wow. Is this Brandon character paying them to print this? Or is the improvement on his sex life just a pleasant side-effect?

One has to wonder. As if playing Superman wasn't going to get him enough chicks...

Wasn't there a similar problem with Mr. Fantastic in Fantastic Four?

Just imagine how Labyrinth would be filmed today....

Yet movie studios don't seem to mind when the women's breasts look like torpedos. Gee, imagine that ;-)

Hmm..there could very well be some connection between Lex Luthers bald head and Superman's "problem"

On the other hand...at least now we know the OTHER effect Kryptonite has on him...and why Lois is so obesssed. :) (secretly she carries around said kryptonite at all times ;)
