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.





Neglected Musicals will present a one-day production of "It’s a Bird... It’s a Plane... It’s Superman" at the Hayes Theatre Co. in the Potts Point suburb of Sydney, Australia on Monday, October 6th.

Directed by Stuart Maunder, this 1966 Broadway Musical is the classic battle between good and evil by one of the comic world’s most renowned superheros, Superman.

Neglected Musicals presents musical theatre that has never, or rarely been seen in Australia. Neglected Musicals presents a reading of a chosen show with scripts in hand, with the musical numbers sung through, after only one days rehearsal.

“As a young director I idolized Hal Prince, as an old director I still do,” said Stuart Maunder. “When I read that as a young stage manager/producer, Prince had decided to cut his directing chops on It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s Superman, this young stage manager/producer/director knew he to find out more about the show that started a directorial career that includes Cabaret, Evita, Phantom of the Opera, and Sondheim musicals from Company to Merrily We Roll Along. And what did I find: a camp, silly, glorious little musical with enough heart to blow up Krypton. With its quirky score by the creators of Bye Bye Birdie and ridiculous ‘Pop Art’ book it’s ripe for the Neglected Musicals treatment. Who doesn’t want to leap buildings at a single bound? And surely any show with a song titled ‘Pow! Bang! Zonk!’ has to be a winner. And with this glorious cast…. I can’t wait.”

The original production of "It’s a Bird... It’s a Plane... It’s Superman" was directed by Harold Prince and played at The Alvin Theatre on Broadway from March 29 1966 – July 17 1966. It starred Bob Holiday as Clark Kent, Patricia Marand, Jack Cassidy and Linda Lavin. The musical received three Tony nominations for Best Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Featured Actress in a Musical. With songs including We Need Him, You’ve Got Possibilities and It’s Superman

Dr. Abner Sedgewick, an esteemed physician at the Metropolis Institute of Technology, is also a ten-time Nobel Prize loser. Bitter and twisted by his failure, Dr Sedgewick wants to take revenge on the world, by destroying Superman and all the good he represents. Superman must defeat Sedgewick and foil his villainous plans in order to save Metropolis and the world. But this quest is no ordinary task for Superman. This time he not only must save the world, but confront envious co-workers and frustrated love interests, all whilst maintaining his secret identity as Clark Kent. After being pushed to his furthest limits and even questioning his self-purpose, will Superman be able to turn himself around in order to triumph?

“It’s been 18 months since the last Neglected Musical,” said producer Michelle Guthrie. “As this will be our tenth presentation and our first at Hayes Theatre Co it’s great to present a very rare and wonderful musical from one of Broadways great collaborators Charles Strouse.”

Tickets are $38 per person with showtimes taking place at at 2pm & 8pm. For more information, please visit www.hayestheatre.com.au.

The "Third Annual Smallville SuperFest" was held on August 15-17, 2014. It featured rides, attractions, and music for Superman (and comic book) fans of all ages.

Mayor Hausler, who is the Mayor of Plano, and on the Smallville SuperFest Planning Committee, explained the attendance at Smallville SuperFest 2013, "I think, total, we...had...probably from 5,000 to 7,000." “My estimates on this year are at least 1,500 to 2,000 on Friday, and probably closer to 3,500 on all-day Saturday. [Sunday] was a little bit lower, so I don’t really have a number on today,” said Jim Martens, who is the “Smallville SuperFest” Chairman. Nicole Diaz, who is the Co-Chair of Smallville SuperFest, estimates between 7,000 and 10,000 people. "Last year...it was pretty good...it might have been as much as 10,000...it was a lot...a lot of people," said Brad Gardner, who became involved in Smallville SuperFest because "I do the artwork for them, and come up with a few visual ideas, here and there. I did the banners, I did the brochures, and the buttons." "Each year, it's been growing...which is a great thing, and, also, the organizations and the community involvement in it...really grown...a lot," said Diaz, "[Attendance is calculated] by sales from our vendors and our sales." "Word is getting out...more advertisement...more sponsorship...more activities and organizations wanting to include [themselves] in the festival," said Diaz. Diaz became involved when, "The mayor came to me, and asked me to come...I have a local business in town, on Main Street, and I was affected when the movie was being filmed here."

Mayor Hausler explained what he believed to be last year's most popular attractions: "We do the Super-Zipline...that's always very popular...the Euro-Bungee...we did that last year, and we run it again this year, we have a lot of very specialized events...the 'Fishing With The Mayor,' I do at our city park...that's very well-attended. We have the Andrew Kuebrick Run that we did today, the 5K run...there was probably 300 people in that, alone." "Probably between the music and the Zipline...everybody loves the Zipline...the Zipline's a lot of fun. I did it twice," said Gardner.

Scoot McNairy Playing Jimmy Olsen?

Posted on August 28, 2014 by Neil Cole

Ever since set photos from "Batman. v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" first surfaced of actor Scoot McNairy wearing green screen material over his lower legs, fans have been speculating over which character he is portraying in the film including The Flash or even possibly Metallo.

Now comes word from entertainment site The Devils Eyes that an extra from the set has revealed to them that McNairy is actually playing an injured Jimmy Olsen. Here's what the extra had to say:

"Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen, but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of Zod vs Superman. His legs where pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs. He now walks with the use of two prosthetic legs." The source goes on to add "He doesn't blame Superman for it [his loss of legs]. He feels grateful that Superman saved the world."

If true, this would be a very interesting and unique spin that director Zack Snyder is placing on the Jimmy Olsen character. However, as with all rumors such as this, take it with a huge grain of salt until such time that Warner Bros. or the Snyder camp makes an official announcement.

"Batman. v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" is scheduled to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

    Lois Lane Young Adult Novel Announced

    Posted on August 27, 2014 by Neil Cole

    Capstone/Switch Press have announced the upcoming release of a new 300-plus-page young adult novel starring a teenage Lois Lane, entitled "Lois Lane: Fallout." Here's the official description:

    Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over -- and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy …

    Author Gwenda Bond - who is quite a fan of the iconic Lois Lane character - had the following to say about writing the novel:

    "Lois is an icon, of course, a superhero without any superpowers...except her unmatched bravery and smarts. Not to mention her sense of humor and her commitment to truth and justice," stated Bond. "She's also one of my all-time favorite characters -- which is why I jumped at the chance to write a novel featuring a teen Lois, moving to Metropolis and becoming a reporter for the first time. As I said yesterday, it's been an incredible honor to do this project and work with the fantastic teams at Capstone/Switch Press and DC. And, most of all, to get to put Lois front and center in the starring role, obviously."

    According to Capstone/Switch Press, "Lois Lane: Fallout" is scheduled to release in May, 2015.

    Weekly screenings of episodes from the classic 1948 Superman Serial starring Kirk Alyn are currently being featured at the historic Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, CA.

    The serial starred Alyn (who was uncredited and billed only by his character name, Superman; but credited on the promotional posters) and Noel Neill as Lois Lane. It is notable as the first live-action appearance of Superman on film and for the longevity of it's distribution. The serial was directed by Thomas Carr, who later directed many early episodes of the "Adventures of Superman" television show, and Spencer Gordon Bennet, produced by Sam Katzman and shot in and around Los Angeles, California. It was originally screened at movie matinées and after the first three scene-setting chapters, every episode ends in a cliffhanger. The Superman-in-flight scenes are animations, in part due to the small production budget.

    Through October 10th, the theater features episodes of the classic serial - which are shown in their original 15 mins episodic format - every Thursday & Friday at 7:30PM as a lead-in to that evenings screenings of classic 1930's or 40's films.

    The historic Stanford Theatre is located at 221 University Avenue in Palo Alto, CA. For more information on the Superman Serial screenings or the theater, please call (650) 324-3700 or visit http://www.stanfordtheatre.org/.

    Actress Sarah Douglas will be appearing as a featured guest at the 2014 Belfast Film and Comic Con which takes place October 25th & 26th at the Odyssey Arena in Queens Quay, Belfast, Ireland.

    Douglas is best remembered for her role in "Superman: The Movie" and "Superman: II" as the Kryptonian villainess Ursa. Other memorable roles include Queen Taramis in "Conan: The Destroyer" and Pamela in the original 1984 television mini-series "V".

    Even though Douglas was born and raised in the UK in Stratford-Upon-Avon, and knew that she wanted to act, she did try to expand options available to her. She worked in a factory and for a time, also in a sterilising department of a hospital. She briefly moved to France and also undertook a teacher training course in English and Drama. However, these were all abandoned in favour of acting.

    In 2006, she was reunited with many of her Superman co-stars in Los Angeles as the new version of Superman II (known as "Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut") was released with previously unseen footage. At the same time, a new Superman DVD boxset was released, featuring an interview with Douglas.

    Other guests scheduled to be in attendance alongside Douglas include Kenny Baker ("Star Wars"), ohn Rhys Davies ("Lord of the Rings Trilogy"), and Stephanie Leonidas ("Defiance").

    The rare comic which first introduced Superman to the world in 1938 was offered by prominent collectibles dealer Darren Adams.

    The selling price - which sets a new world record for the highest price ever paid for a comic book at auction - shatters the previous record of $2,161,000.00 which was paid in 2011 for another copy of 'Action Comics #1' sold by ComicConnect.com.

    According to a new report from Batman-News, Superman may have to answer to the US government for the extensive destruction caused to Metropolis during his battle with General Zod in "Man of Steel."

    Here's an excerpt: (Warning, some spoilers are revealed)

    A major action scene was shot in July in one of the big studios in Detroit. Without giving too much away... it involves Superman and the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. Superman will have to answer for what happened at the end of "Man of Steel." Half the public blames him for all the death and destruction. If it wasn't for Superman being there, General Zod would have never come to Earth.

    Adding credibilty to this latest rumor are the following photos posted by fan Bananadoc which reveal police cars, buses, and taxis branded with Washington D.C. markings.
