Actually, does the title "Superman" actually appear on the screen? I remember a big "S" at the beginning of the flick, but . . . .
It does in this one, as seen above. But it's interesting how often Superman and Batman movies and TV shows don't show the actual character name in their opening titles. The 1988 Superman animated series didn't (though announcer Bill Woodson said it multiple times), B:TAS and S:TAS didn't, and I believe the title screen for Batman Forever was just the Batman logo with "Forever" superimposed on it. I find it interesting how that suggests that the Superman and Batman logos have essentially become ideograms, like in Chinese or Egyptian -- a single symbol representing a specific word. You see "(Bat-symbol) Forever" and you know it's pronounced "Batman Forever."
