Updated May 10th: Weekend pictures.

Thanks to "Azeem," "Hari," "Rose, T.", Abby, "Helen," "James Vincent," "Steven P.," "Craigyboy," and Planet members "faz," "Sarah_SpiritofSuperman aka (Sarah W.)," "Big Supes," "Inga," Lisa-Marie, Son Of Krypton and stop_killing_dead_things.

"faz" says:
"I travelled a round trip of over 200miles to Milton Keynes to see Brandon,
where I had my DVD of SR signed and one of the glossy photos they give you
also signed. I also had a photo session with him. What a marvellous day. Lots of queuing but it was well worth it. He came across very modest, not star-struck and I think somewhat overwhelmed by his popularity. He accommodated everyone's requests to the best of his
ability. And when having his photo taken with me, he joked, because I was so tall
(6ft 4") it made him have to stand more upright as to not feel 'short'!!"

"Sarah_SpiritofSuperman" says:
"Brandon was an abosolute diamond, I spent a fortune seeing him, and was thoroughly spoiled, scarily he knew my name by the end of Saturday, and we managed to colour co-ordinate outfits wihch was pretty cool, as had 2 official photos taken. I have nothing but good things to say about him, and am completely in awe of the man. I am definitely keeping the Superman Spirit alive as he dedicated on my last photo."

"Rose T." says:
"At the photo shoot he gave my mom the same kind of surprised "hullo?" reaction he gave Jason in SR (I don't think he suspected he has a 79 year old 4' 9" fan!) and was really sweet with her. When we went to get a couple of books signed later on, even though we were right at the end of the day he was still willing to listen and respond. As is so often said: a true gent. So much so that we did the 200 mile round trip again on Sunday just to see him again. As far as we could see he was still smiling and polite to everyone, even though with everyone staring and taking pictures all the time it must have felt like being in a goldfish bowl."

"Abby" says:
"He and looked happy to meet all the people did not get to say long as about 800 more people were trying to meet him but he looked at the photo i gave him and said it was cool how they got it to look like that"

"Helen" says:
"Met Brandon six times!!! He is absolutely lovely - I also had a quick chat with Courtney who was sitting behind him, she is also lovely. I told Brandon I thought he was great in Denial and he seemed quite suprised I had seen it. He also told me he liked my green 'S' tshirt as he mostly sees blue! He shook my hand and said great to meet you! I also congratulated him and Courtney on thier engagement and they seemed really pleased. At the signings, he was really happy to have a little chat and shake hands and he signed whatever we wanted. I asked him to sign "Swell!" on mine which he said was "original and cute and hadnt had that request before."

"James Vincent" says:
"It was superb! Brandon Routh was so friendly, and we spotted him twice walking though John Lewis! He was more than happy to stop and say hi!"

"Steven P." says:
"I got some photographs enlarged to 20 x 16 and I think Brandon was impressed. They look fantastic and I can't wait to get them framed and put up on my wall. While Brandon was there I gave him a comic book titled "Superman: The Wedding Album". I said I knew he recently got engaged and gave this to him as a present."

"Craigyboy" says:
"Had never got any autographs or pictures until today. one of the best 2 days of my life. I got my own picture taken with Brandon yesterday, and then got him to autograph it today. He also autographed a picture for my niece and also signed her cast on her broken arm. Had a quich chat, what a gentleman."

Brandon will be appearing this Saturday to Monday (extra day added) at Collectormania in Milton Keynes, UK this weekend where he'll sign autographs and have photos taken with fans.

If you'd like to share your pictures from the event, email me here.

I wonder if Brandon will take a commercial flight, or just put on the tights and cape and fly on over to the UK? :-) From his "Salute to Youth Benefit Dinner" Thursday night he's really going to have to jet set across the globe to be in the UK for Saturday's event. I have friends in London and from what they tell me, Brandon (and Superman) are certainly welcomed and loved across the pond :-) Hope Brandon know's how much he's loved around the world.

Awesome, thanks to everyone who took pictures and shared them with Iris so we could all enjoy them! Looks like you guys had fun, and Brandon looks wonderful as always! :)

These pix are great--thanks for sharing them with all of us. It's great that almost a year after the movie have come out, that people still are eager and thrilled to see and meet Brandon--I really do think he is an international movie star/icon and that we have just begun to see the great things ahead for Brandon. I just got done watching the 2 hr special on the history of Superman (it was on the History channel)that they did just before Superman Returns came out, and Brandon is in it a lot. Watching it brought back all the fun and excitement of last summer when the movie came out, and we all fell in love with the movie and Brandon. I hope Brandon enjoys all this as much as his fans do him. I can't wait for the sequel!

Dude, Brandon has to be one of the sweetest people alive. I mean, he wrote "Swell!" and "I'm always around" on pictures. That is, like, pure awesomeness.

Thank you Iris for collecting all of those awesome quotes and pics and thank you also to the people who shared them.
