Superman Returns to Krypton in Gorgeous Deleted Scene

Nostalgic,cinematic, beautiful, reverential, sort of pointless. All these phrases could be used to describe the 2006 Superman reboot-sequel movie Superman Returns as well as this deleted scene. I remember hearing at the time of the DVD release that a substantial sequence involving Superman's return to Krypton was cut and being saved for a sequel film (although there may be no truth to the rumor). Unfortunately, even a $200+ million box office take wasn't enough to earn the movie a sequel of its own leaving the finished sequence in limbo... until now. This scene is amazing. Not sure it would have really improved Superman Returns or propelled the film any further at the box office, but it deserves to be seen.
