'Superman: The Movie' is undoubtedly a pinnacle in the history of superhero films. Although it has most certainly aged technically, the legacy of Richard Donner's fantastic retelling of Kal-el's origin remains strong. Considering it was one the first of its kind, most modern comic book films owe a lot to the success of this classic. Even to this date, it's one of my all time favorite entries in the genre.
To celebrate both the 35th Anniversary of the initial 1978 release and the launch of Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' this Friday, I decided to create this trailer. It was my goal to display the immortality of this incredible picture through modernized trailer editing.
I hope you all enjoy, and believe a man can fly again...
