The first pictures from the set of the new Superman film are currently available on the net and can be seen here and here.
They show filming taking place in Sydney's York Street, with Brandon Routh as the new Superman/Clark Kent, looking suitably geeky in his grey suit.
Other pictures show Hollywood newcomer Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane in a beige-brown power suit and poodle haircut. She is seen hanging out on set with Singer and co-star James Marsden, who plays The Daily Planet's editor's son.
Superman Returns has been a high-profile project ever since it was announced last year. The film is the latest instalment in the highly successful franchise started by Francis Ford Coppola in the 1970s. Brandon Routh is a relative unknown; his previous credits include a smattering of TV appearances on Will & Grace and One Life to Live.
