Superman director Brian Singer denies digitally alterting Superman's "superpackage"

from globeandmail.com:

JULY 3, 2006--

When Superman Returns landed on screens on Wednesday, it came with some extra features. Not Brandon Routh's "superpackage," as his crotch has been dubbed by tabloid gossip. Rather, the movie's 20 minutes of 3-D footage, put together by the Imax tech team in Toronto.

Nevertheless, rumours have been flying faster than a speeding bullet that reducing the actor's alleged super-crotch was part of the special-effects team's task. Director Bryan Singer laughs off the talk.

"I can confidently tell you that is not the case," he said in a telephone interview from Los Angeles last week, shortly before heading into the movie's U.S. premiere. "If we spent the money to digitally alter every shot of Brendan's, uh Superman's [long pause] crotch . . . that would be money not well spent.

"The reality is . . . that in designing the suit, the initial design, which did not change once we started shooting, there were lots of conversations about the package. Because on one level you want the character to have a sense of modesty, on another level he's Superman. But that was it."
