Re: Live-Action Superman Mythology B%4ls$2!
The Donner films and "Superman Returns" clearly show Kal's spacecraft leaving Krypton shortly before Rao goes supernova and creating the blast (probably a gamma ray burst) that destroys Krypton. Especially in "Superman Returns" we see the debris and various amounts of Green K zoom past us and I assume...following the ship. "Smallville" attempted to tie-itself into the DonnerVerse and was heavily influenced by it as well.
