Superman: The Movie - Taking Flight: The Development of Superman
Cast and crew talk about the creation of Superman the movie.
To me I guess, this movie will likely always be the best superhero movie, maybe best movie of all time. I suppose you could argue it's outdated and not of the same level of effects of modern movies, but to me it's magic. I suppose it gets a lot of points for being the first really huge superhero movie. It was at the time of the creation of the blockbuster movie experience.
To kids like me it was like Superman had come to life, something modern movies have yet to really succeed at. Christopher Reeve sold himself as Superman, not as a guy dressed like Superman. He looked, acted, and became Superman mentally and physically.
