Clever edits ... Christopher Reeve as Superman coming to Sandra Bullock's rescue.

Clever edits ... Christopher Reeve as Superman coming to Sandra Bullock's rescue.

There has been a huge catalogue of complaints about the facts Oscar-winning space blockbuster Gravity got wrong about life in space.

From Sandra Bullock's designer undies — it's nappies only in space, apparently — to the fact her hair doesn't move in zero-gravity and there would be no place for Clooney-esque wisecracks in the serious business of being an astronaut — scientists were up in arms about the inaccuracies.

But now Superman has been drawn into the space caper's technicalities, in a spoof clip made by Indian filmmaker Krishna Shenoi.

In it, Superman in his most famous form played by Christopher Reeve, rescues a cut-adrift Bullock as Dr Ryan Stone. Once she's back in the safety of the space vessel, Superman says something to Bullock, only he's mute and a caption appears: "There is nothing in space to carry sound. duh."

Shenoi posted the video on YouTube with the line that director Alfonso Cuaron had filmed this version which "radically changed" the original. "Too bad the brass at Warner Bros. rejected this version."

The clip ends by cutting to a scene "five minutes earlier" where Reeve as Clark Kent is on a farm hitting a baseball which smashes into space and sparking troubles in space.

The clip has also proved to be a big hitter online, pulling in more than 1.2 million views since it was posted on Tuesday, which also happened to be April Fool's Day.
