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.





"Justice League" Movie Review

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Neil Cole

Warning: Potential Spoilers

"Justice League" has officially made its long-awaited premiere in theaters and fans finally have the opportunity to see the iconic team of superheroes make their debut on the silver screen.

Directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon, the follow-up to the less-than-perfect "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is certainly an improvement over its predecessor and succeeds strongly with the addition of a great mix of action and humor but, unfortunately, still sadly fails when it comes to yet another generic villain; this time in the form of Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds).

Returning to the cast from the last film are Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Henry Cavill as well as the addition of newcomers to the film franchise including Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon.

Also featured throughout the film are return appearances by Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. However, with the exception of Irons who shines in his role with more screen time than that of "Batman v Superman", both Adams and Lane appear only briefly and, when they do, add very little to the overall storyline of the film. In addition, Laurence Fishburne who starred in the previous two installments of the series as Perry White does not appear in the film at all.

The story kicks off with the world still in mourning over the death of Superman (Cavill) while Batman (Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gadot), sensing the oncoming threat of Steppenwolf and his legion of Parademons, are busy attempting to recruit Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Momoa), Barry Allen/Flash (Miller), and Victor Stone/Cyborg (Fisher) to join their ranks in the impending fight.

Through Diana's explanation on the history of Steppenwolf, it is learned that thousands of years ago he attempted to take over the world using the combined energy of three Mother Boxes but was defeated by the combined forces of the Amazons, Atlanteans, and Man as well as otherwordly gods and superheroes including a Green Lantern. Steppenwolf has now returned to seek out the three Mother Boxes and finish what he started so many years before.

Flash is the first to join the team immediately after being asked by Bruce Wayne. He is portrayed perfectly by Miller with the right mix of humor and uncertainty in his sudden role as a superhero while also having Batman serve in the role as a teacher; much in the same way that he was to Dick Grayson/Robin.

While at first reluctant to join, both Aquaman and Cyborg eventually come on board with Momoa doing an excellent job in his role as the iconic Atlantean adding a grittiness to the character that is a nice change from the campiness typically associated with the character. Fisher also does well as Cyborg but comes across as a bit dull at times and never really has an opportunity to shine especially when it comes to any fight sequences.

With the team now banded together, the film really begins to find it's footing and settle into a groove with Batman fully at the healm of the newly formed Justice League. However, even with an arsonal of new weapons and Bat-vehicles - such as the Flying Fox transport and Knightcrawler - as well as a Mother Box at their disposal, the team quickly learns that defeating Steppenwolf will be a much tougher task than first thought.

The team surmises that their only chance in defeating Steppenwolf is to somehow resurrect Superman. Without spoiling the exact details of how this is ultimately accomplished, Superman's return to the world of the living doesn't exactly go without a few initial hiccups but, ultimately, sees Cavill once again donning the iconic red & blue costume and helping the League to defeat Steppenwolf once and for all.

A final sequence offers a wonderful glimpse at what the future holds for the Justice League team while a mid-credits scene features one last bit of humor and an end-credits scene provides some unexpected intrigue from two iconic DC Comics characters.

While the storyline is much more entertaining and witty this time around, "Justice League" unfortunately still suffers from an overall dark and murky landscape which have previously plagued both "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". CGI that borders on abysmal in certain scenes also adds to the disappointing visual look of the film.

However, the abundant addition of humor in "Justice League" does help bring a much-needed bit of comic relief that has been lacking for far too long and a shorter two-hour run time offers a perfect amount of time for the storyline to play out.

All-in-all, Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon have written a great story and, although not perfect, "Justice League" is a step in the right direction and does an excellent job in establishing new characters while also continuing the Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman storylines. This is certainly a film DC and comic book fans in general will enjoy and a nice palate-cleanser following the lackluster "Batman v Superman".

The Arts Picturehouse Cinema in Cambridge, England will present a special screening of the 1978 blockbuster film, "Superman: The Movie" in original 35mm format on Sunday, November 19th at 5:00pm.

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).

An original "Action Comics No. 1" hand-colored silver-print proof from 1938 is currently being auctioned off by online comic marketplace & auctioneer Comic Connect.

At one time, comics were considered disposable, a temporary distraction, which is why so few copies of Golden Age books survive today, despite print runs in the hundreds of thousands. The same thought applied to the art used in the production process, tossed aside as an afterthought, or disposed of by publishers. As a result, the original art for nearly all the classic early works in comic books is lost forever, shredded and tattered, buried in landfills or incinerated and gone to ash.

Except for one truly remarkable piece, the first highlight of the collection, the original hand-colored art on the silver-print for Action #1!

Ed Eisenberg got his start as a young man doing color proofs for National Periodicals (now DC comics). To save money and time, publishers would print "silver proofs," cheap and slightly faded knockoff prints of finalized black-and-white line art printed on paper that would easily absorb watercolors, allowing color artists to mock up basic looks for the covers and interiors of comics to see what palette would work best. It was Ed who devised the color scheme for what became the single most-important comic cover ever published, Action Comics #1, the first appearance of the first superhero, Superman. As always, several proofs were made, allowing editors to choose which look had maximum impact, while the discarded ideas were tossed and gone forever.

Eisenberg, returning to the job after WWII, discovered this one surviving copy, showcasing his original color art, which had been hanging on Harry Donenfeld's office wall behind his desk, for years, and was about to be disposed of while workers cleared out the desk of the ailing publisher. Ed saved it from the scrap heap and took it home, where it remained in his possession until its appearance in auction some 60 years later. As the original art from this issue is long lost, this is likely the only remaining piece left of the construction of an American pop-culture monument, making it among the most historically significant items we've had the privilege of offering.

Observe the major variation in coloring: Eisenberg notes that the red car, while attractive and eye-catching, fought for attention with the red of Superman's cape, and, as editors felt that Superman must be the central figure on the cover, so the car's color was changed, bringing the final imagery in line with what we all know and love. The value and importance of this piece, both to comics and to Americana, cannot possibly be overstated. There are less than 100 copies of Action #1 out there, and look what's happened to the prices on those. Imagine if there was only one, like this hand-colored silver print!

The Superman Super Site recently had an opportunity to conduct an exclusive interview with Canadian actors Blaine Anderson and Brendan Taylor who will star as comic book legends Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel in an episode of AMC's new series "AMC Visionaries: Robert Kirkman's Secret History of Comics".

The episode, entitled "The Trials of Superman", examines the comic book origins of Superman and the legal aftermath that plagued his co-creators. Check out our exclusive interview with Anderson (Joe Shuster) and Taylor (Jerry Siegel) below:

First off, can you please share with our readers a little bit of information about your careers in the entertainment industry and what first got you interested in pursuing acting?

Blaine Anderson: First off , thanks for having us! Well, I hated acting in high school, as it was mostly a goof-off fest. I was definitely not the class clown type, but after studying it after high school at some studios around town, there was a moment when I was doing my first experience on stage in a production of “Lone Star”. I really lost myself in the moment and I’ve been in love with acting ever since.

Brendan Taylor: Well, I DID fall in love with acting in high school! I was a pretty shy kid, but drama class really helped me out of my shell. It was an "easy A" for me, but I didn't think it was a real thing to pursue as a career.

I went off to college to explore other interests, but found my way back to acting naturally. And now I keep busy in all aspects of acting: I co-produce and star in plays, act frequently in commercials, TV and Film, and I love coaching other actors as well.

How did you each first find out about AMC's casting call for "The Trials of Superman" episode and did you have any prior knowledge about Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster?

Blaine Anderson: As most big projects roll through town, you rarely are given the knowledge of what the project is. After a few auditions, it became clear this was the story of the creators of Superman. In Canada, they had commercials called Heritage Minutes. Joe Shuster was Canadian-born, so there was a Heritage Minute about him and his drawing of Superman. It was my favourite one.

Brendan Taylor: Yeah, it came through as any other audition would. When I ended up auditioning several times for multiple characters in the series, I had a good feeling. Jerry was my favorite character to read for, so it worked out well! I knew of their story in brief, but not quite all the details about their famous struggle.

In preparing for the roles of the Siegel & Shuster, what research did each of you conduct in order to essentially become the co-creators of Superman?

Blaine Anderson: Well, we watched what little videos online there were of the two. We also read as much as we could, but we didn’t have much time to prep, so we had to find these character fast.

Brendan Taylor: Yeah, we had to draw out as much info as we could from the many books and articles written over the years. We had many moments of improvisation during shooting so it helped to know their behaviors, tendencies, likes and dislikes, and accomplishments and failures. That really helped us be in the place we needed to be when going into shooting.

In "The Trials of Superman" episode, what can viewers expect to see and learn about Siegel & Shuster and their creation of the Man of Steel?

Blaine Anderson: I really didn’t realize how much these two endured to get credit for their creation. Their lives were fascinating and their passion for Supermen didn’t let them quit.

Brendan Taylor: Their tenacity and love of their creation is really inspiring; as if Superman, this fictional character, was bigger than them. They wanted the best for him, and for his fans and make sure he was, and remained what they had envisioned so long ago. And how the friendship and companionship of Jerry and Joe is at the center of it all.

"The Trials of Superman" epsiode airs on Monday, November 20th at 10:00pm (EST) on AMC.

As part of their marketing strategy for "Justice League", Warner Bros. has largely kept Superman (Henry Cavill) absent from any promotional materials tied to the highly anticipated film.

Composer Danny Elfman returned to the DC Cinematic Universe for the first time in 25 years to score to the soundtrack for "Justice League" and, in the process, provide music for not just one hero, but a full team's worth.

In a new interview with DC Comics, Elfman discusses composing inarguably one of the more fun and exciting superhero scores to come around in quite a while as well his history with DC and thoughts on scoring franchises. His an excerpt from what he had to say:

Back in 1988, the superhero genre as a whole was still pretty new in film. That’s definitely not the case now. Did that change how you set about writing the score for Justice League?

Well, yeah. Styles change over the years. Back then I took it into what Tim used to call “the march.” Well, we wouldn’t do that now. That would be corny by today’s standards. So, I wrote stylistically how I would write now, not then, except for a few moments where Joss [Whedon] was very consciously like, “Let’s do the old thing right here!”

There are definitely nods throughout the movie to previous successors. I do use Hans Zimmer’s Wonder Woman theme a couple of times. Joss loves including a few of those moments in the music that you know the fans are going to love. So, there’s maybe, MAYBE one moment that’s dead-on 1989 Batman.

The one song that’s been released so far, “Hero’s Theme,” certainly sounds rousing and uplifting, but it ends with some pretty unique sounds that are almost discordant. Were you signifying anything there, or did you just think it sounded cool?

Oh yeah, that was just me having fun. “Hero’s Theme” is an overall heroic theme for the Justice League, and as I mentioned, there’s also a secondary theme, which represents the team. That’s how the logos start right at the beginning of the film.

It sounds complicated, but when I put it together, I hope it’s not complicated. The problem is that it’s the kind of thing where if you deconstruct it—if I put it on a big board in front of you—you’d go, “Oh my god, this is so complex.” But the trick with scoring in a situation like this is how to make it not feel complicated to a listener or an audience.

The "Justice League Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" is currently available digitally and on CD on November 10th.
