Go with me on this one, folks:
If I remember correctly, Bryan Singer stated during production of the film that “Superman Returns” continues the continuity of “Superman” and “Superman II.”
In “Superman II,” Lois Lane and Supes do the nasty (for the first and only time) after he uses a Kryptonian machine that strips him of his powers. At the end of that movie, he uses the machine to get his powers back and defeat General Zod. He also erases Lois Lane’s memory of his secret identity and their intimate encounter by kissing her. (Yeah, weird…)
In “Superman Returns,” when the super-kid kills that henchman with the piano, Lois realized without a doubt that he was the son of Superman. But if you remember, Superman erased her memory of the kid’s conception! Shouldn’t she have been wondering how his super-sperm knocked her up?
The movie tries to play it off by referencing Lois’ article titled “My Night With Superman.” But if you remember from Superman I, that article was about Lois’ first interview with him, not some steamy sexual rendezvous.
So, what I want to know is, how come Lois didn’t cry “Rape!” And how come the writers didn’t catch this plot hole?
