Superman is the brainchild of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster who first envisioned the character in 1932 and later had his first appearance in Action Comics #1 in June 1938. What Jerry and Joe did not know at the time was that they had created a character that would become the signature icon of DC Comics and the most universally recognized hero in human history.

Since 1938, the character of Superman/Clark Kent has appeared in every imaginable media form including television, film, novelizations, and even a Broadway show.

Being Superman is the childhood fantasy of every little boy and girl (they of course want to be Supergirl). He is an enduring emblem of the American dream, the young immigrant who comes to the United States, embraces the culture and makes something of himself and enriches his adopted nation. He is a classical hero in the modern age who fights criminals, rescues the helpless and has a sense of morals and justice as strong and unshakeable as he is.

Since 1998, the Superman Super Site's mission statement has been to bring you all the latest news, updates, and information pertaining to the Man of Steel and the Superman universe in general.

It is a mission we are proud to maintain for all the fellow Superman fans of the world and everyone who visits our site because, without you, we would not exist.

He also appeared in a recurring role as Casey Manning in the television series "Las Vegas." In 2007, Cain returned to the world of Superman when he guest-starred on the hit CW Series, "Smallville" in the seventh season episode "Cure" as the immortal Dr. Curtis Knox.

The OnStage - School of Musical will present the first ever German language production of the classic 1966 Broadway musical "It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Superman!".

The musical will be featured on the stage of the Brunsviga Culture and Communication Centre located in Braunschweig, Germany with performances taking place Friday, September 23rd - Sunday, September 25th.

With a tongue-in-cheek script by Robert Benton and David Newman (who went on to write Bonnie and Clyde and the blockbuster Superman film) and a fabulous, much-lauded score by Bye Bye Birdie's Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, the musical pokes fun at the American superhero whose unwavering morality, fidelity, and loyalty make him a bit of a dull cracker.

The original production was directed by Harold Prince; choreographed by Ernest Flatt and starred Jack Cassidy, Bob Holiday and Linda Lavin. It opened at the Alvin Theatre on March 29, 1966 and ran for 129 performances.

For more information on the OnStage - School of Musical production of "It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Superman!", visit the official Facebook event page.

The 2016 Australian Movie & Comic Expo will play host to a "Superman II" cast reunion featuring actors Marc McClure (Jimmy Olsen), Sarah Douglas (Ursa), and Jack O'Halloran (Non).

The film is well known for its controversial production in which original director Richard Donner had completed, by his estimation, roughly 75% of the movie in 1977 before being taken off the project. Many of the scenes were shot by second director Richard Lester, who had been an uncredited producer on the first film. However, in order to receive full director's credit, Lester had to shoot up to 51% of the film, which included refilming several sequences originally filmed by Donner. According to statements made by Donner, roughly 25% of the theatrical cut of "Superman: II" contains footage he shot, including all of Gene Hackman's scenes.

The convention takes place Saturday, October 15th and Sunday, October, 16th at the Melbourne Showgrounds located in the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Ascot Vale.

Preceeding the convention will be a a special screening of "Superman II" on Sunday, October 9th at 6:30pm followed by a Q&A with McClure and Douglas in which the tow stars will share their insights into making one of the biggest blockbuster films of the 1980's.

"Kingdom Come" Fan Trailer

Posted on September 11, 2016 by Neil Cole

AListProductions has put together the following impressive fan-edited trailer (using existing footage of DC properties/and others) to create an "on screen" story of how a live-action film version of the 1996 comic book mini-series "Kingdom Come" could look:

"Kingdom Come" was written by Mark Waid and Alex Ross and published by DC Comics under their Elseworlds imprint. The central storyline deals with a growing conflict between the visibly out-of-touch "traditional" superheroes, and a growing population of largely amoral and dangerously irresponsible new vigilantes.
