It starts with Superman altering the rotation of Earth to turn back time (one of the lamest methods of time travel ever depicted in fiction)
To be fair, I did not interpret that scene as Superman altering the rotation of the Earth, but rather that he was flying around the Earth faster than light. Relativity suggests that if one could travel faster than light, you would travel backward in time, so Earth's rotation would appear to be going backward.

Of course, Relativity also says that it is impossible to accelerate from slower-than-light to faster-than-light, so I'm not saying the movie was being realistic there. Just saying that he wasn't simply pushing the Earth backward.
