Absolutely Stunning SUPERMAN RETURNS Concept Art by Jeff Julian

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - by Maurice Mitchell 5


Check out Superman Returns concept art by Jeff Julian!

Superman Returns was a box office bomb. It made $391 million worldwide, but is still considered a bomb because of it's huge $200 budget and mixed reviews. That said, there are some beautiful scenes in the movie. Notably when Superman saves the plane from crashing into the stadium and the look of Lex Luthor's "New Krypton." One of the many talented artists that helped shape the look and feel of the movie is Jeff Julian and he shared concept art for the film on his site.

Julian is a professional concept artist who's worked on big budget movies like I Am Legend (2007), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and Cloud Atlas (2012)

Official Superman Returns Synopsis
"Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to Earth in the epic action-adventure Superman Returns, a soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the world's most beloved superheroes. While an old enemy plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bittersweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space."

  1. Amazing! Thanks for sharing these. I have never seen any of them before. I still have a soft spot for the movie despite some flaws. It feels very nostalgic for me. I wish it could have done better. Good post, Maurice!

  2. The art is better than the movie. Which is sad, I liked it the first time, and then upon reflection and reviewing, I realized it wasn't that good. We were just so hoping for another epic Superman film.
    And we finally got one...

  3. Singer tried hard to capture the feel of the original Vic. Thanks!

  4. Same here. Once the nostalgia wore off, the movie just feels like a hollow imitation of Supes '78.

  5. I agree, but it's a better film than Man of Steel.
