Burbank, CA -- Warner Bros. Digital Distribution is today announcing the launch of a mobile (Wireless Application Protocol/"WAP") site and action-adventure game for the highly anticipated feature film "Superman Returns." The site is one of the first of its kind in the U.S. for a major motion picture and the first major domestic direct-to-consumer mobile program created by Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.
The mobile site, available to all mobile subscribers in the U.S. and Canada with text messaging and wireless internet service, gives fans immediate access to "Superman Returns" by simply texting the letter S to the phone number 43892 (GETWB). This unique mobile experience offers promotional and premium content. Promotional items include a free mobile wallpaper, trivia game, and Daily Planet media alerts, providing fans with the latest news and events leading up to the premiere.

Players assume the role of Superman, racing against the clock to regain the trust of the people and bring peace back to the city. Other premium content includes wallpapers from the new film and ringtones from John Williams' classic "Superman" theme and Rhino Records' "Sound of Superman" concept album. Long time fans are treated to a wide selection of personalized wallpapers and ringtones from the super hero's classic and current films, television, and comic book properties such as "Superman I & II," "Smallville," and "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman."
