Late movie heavyweight Marlon Brando is to be honoured for his part in the Superman franchise - by being turned into an action figure. Brando's JOR-EL character from the original 1978 Superman movie will feature as part of a new SUPERMAN RETURNS line of toys and figures, released later this year (06) to coincide with the latest film. Brando appears briefly in the new Superman film - director Bryan Singer used outtake footage of the acting legend in the 1970s so he could re-appear as Jor-El in flashback scenes.
