Since the "reboot" did not really occur until Man of Steel in 2013, the Reeves movie franchise was still the current one by the time of Superman Returns. It counts as a very late sequel, with a recasting of the same canon main character.
I edited that post to include there were animated movies that were made before Returns that didn't follow Christopher Reeve's Superman like Returns did.
Yeah, and the animated people, the movie people, the toy people, and the video game people are all off doing different adaptations of the comics so it doesn't count. Or are we treating Elementary as a reboot of Sherlock now.
I'm not sure how a film that has been rebooted (from Christopher Reeve's "Superman" to the animated "Superman: Brainiac Attacks" where Jonathan Kent lives) and then returned to a previous continuity (Superman Returns returning to Christopher Reeve's Superman) doesn't count.
