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.





The Warner Archive Collection has officially announced the Blu-Ray release of "Superman: The Movie" Extended Cut and Special Edition which will be available on October 3rd.

Audiences had already been swept off their feet by Christopher Reeve's Last Son of Krypton, and now there was more to enjoy. Unseen in decades, this version is paired here with Richard Donner's definitive vision of his film, the Special Edition Director's Cut (2000), to create a supersized celebration of Metropolis' favorite son that preserves the director's intent while feeding superfan demands.

In a recent interview with US Weekly, actors Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot talked about their respective roles as Batman and Wonder Woman in "Justice League" how their characters have evolved since appearing in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

"She's grown up - it's been a century, after all! She'll bring her specific qualities to a group dynamic, and she understands the enemy better than anyone else," states Gadot about Wonder Woman, with Affleck adding in regard to Batman, "In Batman v Superman, he was at the end of his rope. But in Justice League he's finding hope again. He has to open up and play well with others. He knows he needs them."

Affleck continued about his character as the ultimate loner, "but he's really trying to make it work and develop a good relationship with all of them. He might be a mentor to The Flash."

The dynamic between Batman and Wonder Woman has also evolved since they fought side-by-side in "Batman v Superman" with Gadot stating, "Since they've fought together, they know each other's strengths. They also understand the hope Superman stood for, that was lost [when he died], so they feel that more than the others."

"Justice League" premieres worldwide on November 17th and stars Affleck as Batman, Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Amber Heard as Mera, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

The historic Madison Theater in Albany, NY will feature multiple screenings of the classic 1978 blockbuster "Superman: The Movie" on September 28th & 29th at 8:00PM and October 1st at 2:00PM, 5:00PM, & 8:00PM.

One of the most well-regarded superhero films of all time, Superman was a box-office smash when it rocketed to Earth in 1978. The last son of the dead planet Krypton, Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) is found as a baby by Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter) when his spaceship crashes just outside of Smallville, USA. Given the name "Clark" by his adopted parents, the boy grows up strong in the American heartland, developing amazing powers under the light of the yellow sun. One day, Clark finds a glowing crystal, and with it finds out about his alien heritage, the knowledge imparted to him by his birth father, Jor-El (Marlon Brando). The boy becomes a man, and moves to Metropolis to work for the Daily Planet newspaper, finding love in Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and danger in the form of criminal genius Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman).

Tickets for the "Superman: The Movie" screenings are $5.00 each for all ages. For more information or to purchase tickets on-line, please click here.

The 6th Annual Smallville SuperFest took place in Plano, Illinois, on August 18, 19, and 20, 2017. It featured music, games, and attractions for Superman (and comic book) fans of all ages.

Nicole Diaz, the Event Coordinator, explained the attendance for last year's Smallville SuperFest, "[We estimate that anywhere from...[8,000] to 10,000 [people attended last year's Smallville SuperFest]." "I'm hoping for the [10,000] to [12,000 people at this year's Smallville SuperFest]," said Diaz. Diaz became involved in Smallville SuperFest because, "I had a business, while they were filming ['Man of Steel'], and when Mayor Bob Hausler wanted to put an organization together for the festival, he invited me to the meeting."

Smallville SuperFest was advertised in a variety of ways. Diaz explained a few of them, "Interviews...we did some press releases...we had a lot of interviews...we had some TV interviews, and radio spots." "I just tell people, 'Come to the train station, in Plano...that's where the Superman Museum will be,'" said Kay Mulliner, a volunteer at the Depot, who became involved in Smallville SuperFest because, "I work at the Depot, Monday through Friday, and so I [volunteered] to [oversee] the Depot for Smallville [SuperFest]." "[Smallville SuperFest] was on Facebook a lot. It was advertised in the [news]paper. [It was advertised] on Facebook, [a lot]. On Facebook, [Smallville SuperFest] was advertised...when it [was]...what time...the dates, and everything. [The advertisement on Facebook] showed the [Batmobile]...that's right down the street...[the Batmobile] returned this year. There was a lot of [advertisement] for [Smallville SuperFest]," said Mulliner.

The most effective advertising avenue, said Diaz, is social media. "Social media...Instagram...when people tag us..." "I think... Facebook...[works] better, because [everybody has] put it on [Facebook]," said Mulliner.

Diaz explained the easiest, and most difficult, aspect of planning Smallville SuperFest, this year, "I think...anywhere, in any community, has an issue with [getting] the volunteers." "I think [getting] volunteers...I think that's the biggest issue," said Mayor Bob Hausler, the Mayor of Smallville, who explained how he initially became involved with Smallville SuperFest. "When the filming of the Superman, 'Man of Steel' was done in our downtown, and in our city, I thought it'd be a good idea to have a festival to commemorate the excitement and fun that everyone had."

Each day of Smallville SuperFest 2017 had a theme. Diaz explained the inspiration behind these themes, "The reason why we [have themes for each day of the festival] is [to try] to coincide with the school. The school [has] a purple-and-white football[-type event], so we named [Friday] Purple Pride Night. Saturday is our family day, and that's to bring everybody together and do family events. On Sunday, we honor our service people, and that's why [Sunday is named] Service Day."

This year's Smallville SuperFest featured a variety of attractions. There were Opening Ceremonies on Friday, "We had the American [Legion] do the opening Honor Guard, and then we had Samantha do the National Anthem, and then we had a former Miss Illinois...[announce] our junior Hometown Hero Awards; we had five participants this year. They were referred [to us by] teachers, and they were students at our middle school. We also honor some of our service [people] that have done great deeds for the community...police officers and fire[fighters], because we want [to] honor them for [handling] dangerous situations," said Diaz. "We presented the [Hometown Hero] Awards for those hometown heroes...the juniors and the police officers," said Mayor Hausler. There was also Arts on Fire: Make and Take Art. "What I had [envisioned for the festival] is a [hands-on] science [project] so we...asked [the assistance of] 'Arts on Fire' [in coordinating the project for us]. So, [the personnel of 'Arts on Fire'] came up with creative, hands-on art, and a lot of [the art is similar to] a science-type [project], because [some creations are projects that are similar to] goo. It was really cool that ['Arts on Fire'] incorporated [the creative, hands-on art] with [the art that 'Arts on Fire'] normally does," said Diaz. The Villain's Jail returned. "There were quite a few [people] that were contributing to keep me in [the Villain's Jail], but, luckily, I had one very generous gentleman come over and put enough money in to get me out. I appreciated that. I may be in [the Villain's Jail on Saturday night], when it cools off," said Mayor Hausler. "The Mayor got in [the Villain's Jail], and it was hard for him to get out. People would bail him out, and we'd put him back in...[really] quick," said Diaz.

As many Superman fans know, actor Nicolas Cage and director Tim Burton spent many years throughout the 1990s working on bringing the Man of Steel back to the silver screen in what would ultimately become the failed "Superman Lives" project.

The movie has long been a hot topic of discussion when it comes to failed film productions and a 2015 documentary titled "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?" offered an entertaining and indepth look into the project while also showcasing footage of Cage's costume test and interviews with various individuals attached to the film.

Cage has touched on the film in numerous interviews over the years and recently offered a bit more insight about the project at the Toronto International Film Festival when asked about his opinion on how the Man of Steel is currently being portrayed onscreen. Here's an excerpt:

"I would offer that the movie that Tim and I would have made, in your imagination, is more powerful than any of the Superman movies," stated Cage. "I didn't even have to make the movie and we all know what that movie would have been in your imagination. That is the Superman. That is the movie. Even though you never saw it - it is the Superman."

Cage currently stars alongside actress Selma Blair in the horror film "Mom and Dad" which reunites the Oscar-winning star with director Brian Taylor (who co-directed "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" in 2011).

Watch the complete interview with Cage at EW.com.

Superman has appeared in numerous live action movies and television series throughout the iconic character's nearly 80-year history with various actors donning versions of the classic costume.

Inverse has put together an article that takes an indepth look at how the costume has changed with each new actor stepping into the role on television or in film.

For more than 75 years, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel's Superman has flown up, up, and away as an American icon recognized all around the world. But while Superman has had radical costumes changes in the pages of DC Comics, a quick glance at his live-action super-suits would make you think he looks pretty much the same throughout the years. But you'd be wrong. Every single TV and movie Superman's suit is totally different.

The article examines the costumes worn by such well-known Superman actors as George Reeves ("The Adventures of Superman"), Christopher Reeve ("Superman: The Movie"), and Henry Cavill ("Man of Steel") as well as Kirk Alyn; the first actor to ever don the red & blue suit on screen in the 1948 "Superman" film serial.

    When casting was originally underway for the lead role as the Man of Steel in "Superman: The Movie", many actors were considered prior to Christopher Reeve landing the part including David Hasselhoff.

    In a recent interview with The A.V. Club reflecting on now lengthy career, Hasselhoff talked about the possiblity of being chosen for the role of Superman in the 1978 blockbuster film but ultimately missing out on the opportunity due to his manager talking him out of auditioning fearing that he'd be typecast.

    "A long time ago, I was up for Superman, and my manager at the time said to me, 'I don't think you should do Superman, because if you do Superman, you'll be Superman for the rest of your life'," stated Hasselhoff. "And you know, Christopher Reeve went on to be Superman in real life and in films and in all kinds of different films. That was probably the worst advice."

    Hasselhoff when on to talk about the television roles he has become so well known for during his career including Michael Knight on "Knight Rider" and Mitch Buchannon on "Baywatch".

    "When people say, 'You're such a nice guy. You still embrace Knight Rider and Baywatch! Most actors get really upset!' What? Why?! I mean, look at Schwarzenegger. He went right back to the Terminator. Get over it. You're lucky if you get one hit. You're freaking lucky if you get one hit! I've had like five or six. So that's the advice I got, and I'm still laughing about that, because I was really close to getting Superman, and we pulled out of it."

    In a recent interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz for the Happy Sad Confused podcast, actor Jay Baruchel talked about his role as the villain Maxwell Lord in the failed "Justice League Mortal" film and revealed details about a major fight scene between Wonder Woman and Superman.

    "There was a scene where Maxwell Lord brainwashes Clark and all of a sudden has Superman as a weapon," stated Baruchel. "I turn him into full red-eye Superman, and then there's this big ass fight between him and Wonder Woman, where he breaks her f—ing wrists and sh–."

    "Justice League Mortal" was set to be directed by George Miller with a release date set for 2009 but the project ultimately died thanks in huge part to the Hollywood writer's strike.

    In addition to Baruchel the film was set to star Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Armie Hammer as Batman, DJ Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as The Flash, and Common as Green Lantern.

    "Melissa is so sweet, and so is her interpretation of Supergirl," stated Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with TV Insider. "It was fun to hear her voice records and see she's capable of a darkness. I think she really enjoyed playing the bad guy for a bit!"

    The Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, Montana is currently hosting the "My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action" traveling exhibition which features a dynamic collection of international artworks - in a variety of media - that celebrates, examines, and re-envisions the "lives" of iconic superheroes.

    For decades, popular culture has been fascinated by superheroes, their superhuman capabilities, their desire for truth and justice, and their ability to save the day. Their storylines have captivated many, and their imagery has become the stuff of contemporary idols throughout the world.

    Born of the imaginings and talent of comic artists several generations ago, these imagined personalities inspire contemporary artists today who continue to tap the world of the superhero, paying tribute to the characters that were early artistic inspirations.

    Some of the works featured in the exhibition include Dulce Pinzon's (Brooklyn, NY) photographs depicting the lives of immigrants as society's "real superheroes," with images of Catwoman working as a nanny and Superman delivering pizzas. Also to be featured, Mel Ramos's (Oakland, CA) oil painting of Superman (1962), which was recently on display at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, CA.

    The exhibition also includes a wide array of media by an international roster of artists including Mike Alcantara, Clemintine Campardou Blule, Katherine Bradford, Robert Xavier Burden, Penny Byrne, Enrique Chagoya, Sandra Chevrier, Mark D’Alfonso, Andreas Englund, Jeremy Fisher, and Cheong-ah Hwang.

    "My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action" runs through January 2, 2018 and was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.

    Warner Bros. Home Entertainment recently provided the Superman Super Site with a review copy of "Supergirl: The Complete Second Season" on Blu-ray featuring all 22 super-powered episodes, exclusive commentary with Andrew Kreisberg and Kevin Smith, the show's 2016 Comic-Con panel, featurettes, and more!

    Having left the safety of being Cat Grant's assistant at Catco Worldwide Media in order to figure out what she really wants to do, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) continues to work with Hank Henshaw aka Martian Manhunter (David Harewood) and her adoptive sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) at the DEO as Supergirl – protecting the citizens of National City and searching for her missing father Jeremiah (Dean Cain) and the secret research lab Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with her Kryptonian cousin Kal El – aka Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) – to battle new DC Super-Villains both terrestrial and extraterrestrial, as she strives to balance her personal life with friends/allies James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) and more with her busy life as a new Super Hero.

    The sophomore season tended to not be as good as season one with the most glaring issue being that the stories got lazy and started borrowing heavily from current political headlines. This overall change in tone alienates a large percentage of the audience and is an unfortunate change following a more positive first season.

    The second season sees Kara and her friends more involved with D.E.O. operations while CatCo tends to take a backseat following the departure of Cat Grant - who takes a sabbatical - and the arrival of Ian Gomez as Snapper Carr. Left alone, James Olsen becomes the vigilate Guardian and joins the fight against several new villains as well a few returning ones from season one. Fans are also finally treated to the arrival of Superman/Clark Kent who adds some much needed action to the second season and even ends up sharing the Fortress of Solitude with Supergirl.

    Other highlights of the second season include the arrivial of M'gann M'orzz/Miss Martian (Sharon Leal) as a love interest for J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter, the casting of actress Lynda Carter as the US President, the introduction of Mon-El (Chris Wood) who arrived in the season one finale, and the absolutely wonderful crossover episode with the rest of the "Arrowverse".

    As mentioned above, the second season saw the arrival of several new villains including Metallo (Frederick Schmidt), Mr. Mxyzptlk (Peter Gadiot), Roulette (Dichen Lachman), Livewire (Brit Morgan), Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) aka the mastermind behind Cadmus, and Mon-El's mother Rhea (Teri Hatcher) who is Earth's latest biggest threat.

    All-in-all, "Supergirl: The Complete Second Season" does make a great addition to any fan's media collection and, even with quite a few miss-fires in it's storytelling, still has more than enough action and intriguing moments to keep viewers entertained throughout all 22 episodes.

    "Supergirl: The Complete Second Season" is priced to own at $49.99 SRP for the DVD and $54.97 SRP for the Blu-ray which includes a Digital Copy. The season is also available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers.
