The scenes were not "ripped" from Superman Returns.
And how they were ripped. First we have Lois in the plane, then she sees Superdude swooshing by and then he stabilizes it, and then he pushed that planet away from Earth just like he did with Kryptonite Island, and then he floats in space very similar to the scenes in SR.
Yeah, all the 'Superman'-scenes were basically Returns
-light... very light.
One thing would have made up for this weak finale... Welling, in the costume, flying in orbit, winking at the camera.
