DescriptionSuperman - The Movie (1978): A baby from the planet Krypton develops superhuman powers under Earth's yellow sun. As an adult (Christopher Reeve) he dons a red cape and pants and flies across the world doing good deeds, whilst also hiding behind the alias of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent. Fellow journalist Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) falls for the muscleman in tights without realising he and her bumbling colleague are one and the same. This special-effects laden adaptation of the DC Comics character also features Marlon Brando in a highly-paid cameo and Gene Hackman as evil mastermind criminal Lex Luthor.
Superman 2 (1980): Superman (Reeve) continues to outstrip speeding bullets and leap tall buildings in a single bound, this time while preventing three arch-enemies from space from achieving world domination.
Superman 3 (1983): Synthetic Kryptonite turns the normally upstanding Superman (Reeve) into a low-grade Supersleaze, clearing the path for a megalomaniac tycoon (Robert Vaughn) and a computer whiz (Richard Pryor) to take over the world.
Superman 4 - The Quest For Peace (1987): Superman (Reeve), moved by a schoolboy's request, determines to rid the world of nuclear weapons. However, his arch enemy Lex Luther (Hackman), now a nuclear arms entrepreneur, clones Nuclear Man (Pillow) from a strand of the hero's hair and the two mighty men battle it out in space. Meanwhile, back on Earth, love for Clark Kent causes dating difficulties for Superman and Lois Lane (Kidder). Superman Returns He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiance and a Pulitzer for "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman" and Lex Luthor has a plan that will destroy millions - no, billions of lives...
Filmmaker Bryan Singer (X-Men) gives the world the Superman it needs, honoring the legend everyone loves while taking it in a powerful new direction. Brandon Routh proves a perfect choice to wear the hero's cape, leading a top cast that includes Kate Bosworth as Lois and Kevin Spacey as Lex. And the thrills from a sky-grapple with a tumbling jumbo jet to a continent-convulsing showdown, redefine Wow. "I'm always around", Superman tells Lois. You'll be glad he is.
