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.





Warner Bros. Home Entertainment offers an all-new official clip from “Justice League: Gods & Monsters,” an original animated film featuring Bruce Timm's new vision of the world's greatest super heroes.

The clip features Superman (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), Wonder Woman (Tamara Taylor) and Batman (Michael C. Hall) preparing for battle with the U.S. Army … and a question as to whether or not this trinity will be perceived as saving or ruling the planet. The clip also includes the voice of Tahmoh Penikett as Steve Trevor.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, “Justice League: Gods & Monsters” arrives on Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD this Tuesday - July 28, 2015.

"Justice League: Gods & Monsters" is the 23rd film in the DC Universe Animated series and features an original plot written by Alan Burnett, directed by Sam Liu, and executive produced by Bruce Timm and Sam Register.

In an alternative universe, Superman is Hernan Guerra - the son of General Zod, who was rocketed to Earth as a child and raised by a family of Mexican migrant farmers, leading him to become short tempered and withdrawn from humanity.

Batman is Kirk Langstrom, a scientist who has inadvertently transformed himself into a form of pseudo-vampire in an attempt to cure his cancer, feeding on criminals to satisfy his hunger after it begins to eat away at his humanity.

Wonder Woman is Bekka - child of Ares, the God of War and wife of New God, Orion. An altercation results in her leaving Apokolips and eventually traveling to Earth using a sword conjoined to a mother box.

When these dark heroes form an alliance, the question everyone asks is will they save the world, or rule it?

The film kicks off with the Justice League's accountability being challenged by the world's governments following a series of suspicious deaths of renowned scientists, including Victor Fries being found drained of blood in the Arctic, Ray Palmer's car crushed with a woman's bootprint in the door, and Silas Stone burned alive by heat vision, along with his son Victor Stone.

With sole blame being mounted against the Justice League, President Amanda Waller requests that the team members cooperate with the Government's investigation into the murders. Wonder Woman speaks to Steve Trevor to learn what the Government knows, while Superman invites Lois Lane to the League's HQ, where he tells her of his goals to try to help humanity, and also reveals how little he knows about Krypton or his heritage.

Meanwhile, Batman's independent investigation leads to the discovery an email on Silas Stone's computer, that was sent to a number of scientists including Will Magnus - Batman's college roommate who helped him during his transformation into the pseudo-vampire. Batman asks Magnus about 'Project FairPlay', which involved all the scientists under Lex Luthor's employ. After Magnus refuses to reveal any information, Batman locates all the remaining scientists discussing the threat over their heads, when they are attacked by the assassins, who travel via Boom Tube.

Despite the combined efforts of all the League members intervening, the assassins slaughter the remaining scientists and 'Boom' out, with only Magnus left as the sole survivor.

The overall animation of "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" is pretty solid but does lack the punch and smooth style of previous DC Universe Animated films such as "All-Star Superman", "Batman: Under the Red Hood" and the more recent "Batman vs. Robin." My only other complaint would be the film's overall run time of only 72 minutes which results in a somewhat rushed storyline.

However, the script is well written and just enough time is spent on establishing the origins and background of each League member as this is the first time any of these characters from this alternate universe have been seen before.

Easily the best aspect of "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" is the voice casting. While the familiar cast from the Justice League animated tv series has understandably been replaced with new voice actors, each individual does a superb job of making their respective characters their own as opposed to tryin to mimic or copy what has come before.

Benjamin Bratt does a wonderful job establishing his role as Hernan Guerra/Superman offering a completely different take on the iconic character than that of Tim Daly who is well known for voicing the Man of Steel for many years. Michael C. Hall and Tamara Taylor are also phenominal in their debuts as the respective voices of Kirk Langstrom/Batman and Bekka/Wonder Woman.

Rounding out the "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" primary cast are Paget Brewster as Lois Lane, C. Thomas Howell as Dr. Will Magnus, Jason Isaacs as Lex Luthor/Metron, Dee Bradley Baker as Ray Palmer, Eric Bauza as Ryan Choi, Larry Cedar as Pete Ross, Richard Chamberlain as Highfather, Trevor Devall as Emil Hamilton, Dan Gilvezan as Pat Dugan, Grey Griffin as Tina/Platinum, Daniel Hagen as Doctor Sivana, Penny Johnson Jerald as President Amanda Waller, Josh Keaton as Orion, Arif S. Kinchen as Michael Holt, Yuri Lowenthal as Jor-El, Carl Lumbly as Silas Stone, Jim Meskimen as Victor Fries, Taylor Parks as Victor Stone, Khary Payton as John Henry Irons, Tahmoh Penikett as Steve Trevor, Andrea Romano as Jean Palmer, Bruce Thomas as General Zod, Lauren Tom as Lara, and Kari Wahlgren as Karen Beecher.

In the end "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" is pretty solid, but not remarkable. It plays very well but, as I stated before, could have been a bit longer to encompass more of a storyline and increase the fight sequences which are easily the strongest points of the movie. Although the film does have a PG-13 rating due to vilolence and language, it is nothing more than what one would expect to see in any of the prior releases in the DC Universe Animated series.

All-in-all, I'd rank this film as one of DC's best in the series so far and is one release you will defintely want to add to your movie collection..

    Actress Stacy Haiduk starred as Lana Lang from 1988–1992 on the popular "Superboy" live-action television series which would later become "The Adventures of Superboy" at the start of the third season.

    In the following exclusive interview with the Superman Super Site, Haiduk talks about her days of working on the Universal Studios - Orlando set of the series as well as her career prior to and following "Superboy". Enjoy:

    Super Site: In addition to "The Adventures of Superboy", one of your first acting roles was in the 1987 comedy "Magic Sticks" which also featured Samuel L. Jackson in one of his earliest roles. Had you been pursuing a career in acting prior to this casting and what memories do you have of this early role?
    Haiduk: Honestly, I don't remember much. I had been pursuing acting. I was taking classes and auditioning. This was very early on in my New York day's. Probably one of my 3rd or 4th jobs.

    Super Site: Your role as Lana Lang in "The Adventures Superboy" was the first time this iconic character had been featured in a lead role on television. How did you find out about the casting call and what was it like knowing you had gotten the part?
    Haiduk: Well, you have to have an agent. Then the agent sets you up for the audition and I remember this audition was at a hotel in New York. I remember there were so many actors there reading for the part of Superboy and Lana Lang. Jennifer Aniston was reading for the part of Lana when I was there. We don't have to worry about her, she did alright for herself. They had asked me to come back and read with the actors they had for Superboy. I remember being in the room with Ilya and Bob, the producers and then Lynn Stalmaster, the Casting Director. I spent 2 days reading with probably 20 different guys. Finally a little over a week went by and they found 2 people they wanted to test. Of course I was reading opposite them. All I could think is I hope I get the part. I think it was a week after that and I got the call that I was going to be there Lana, but they were still looking for their Superboy. I must say I was thrilled. It was my first big acting job and I was going to get paid! Every Week for 13 weeks! Wow!

    Super Site: Although the character of Lana Lang was Clark Kent's sweetheart during his Smallville days, she is not as well known or publicized as Lois Lane. What steps did you take to learn more about the character and prepare for the role itself?
    Haiduk: I did not know much about Lana. I saw the Superman movie and remembered Diane Sherry Case, who I had the honor of meeting recently, play the role, but that was pretty much it. I was a teenager who had crushes on boys, and friends who were boys, so doing the role was just tapping into that, and when there was a villain, which was pretty much every episode, just call for Superboy. LOL!!!

    Super Site: Following season one of "The Adventures Superboy", quite a few changes were made to the series with one of the most drastic being Gerard Christopher taking over the role of Superboy/Clark Kent from John Haymes Newton. What was is like working with a new actor in the title role and how was his interpretation of the character different than that of Newton's?
    Haiduk: I enjoyed working with John, it was new and exciting. He and I started dating while working, which in the acting world is a NO NO. It started getting a little sour toward the end of the first season. So having Gerard come in was a nice break. Both of them brought a lovely charm to the role, but I feel the stories got better during the the 2nd, 3rd and 4th season. So Gerard really got to do more and it was a lot of fun!

    Super Site: "The Adventures Superboy" truly was a wonderful series and received a resurgence when it was officially released on DVD for the first time a few years ago. Looking back, what are some of your fondest memories while on the set and do you still keep in touch with your co-stars?
    Haiduk: Some of my fondest memories was just being the first series to be shot in Florida. Getting to go the back way through Disney World and Universal. I remember one Friday evening, after shooting, we all got on the electric golf carts and went zooming through Universal's back lot. Gerard was in one cart and I was in the other. We started racing on the back lot streets and I won, because Gerard ran his cart into a fire hydrant. Ha! Fun times! I see some of the actors and directors, or many of them Facebook me through out the years!! It was a good time!!

    Super Site: You recently were part of the "Superman: The Movie" cast reunion at WonderCon and a guest at the annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. What is it like meeting all the fans of this memorable series all these years later at these special events?
    Haiduk: I must say it's the fans that keep it all alive. I love meeting each and every one.

    Super Site: Following "The Adventures of Superboy", you have had starring roles on such memorable TV series as "SeaQuest 2032", "The Young and the Restless", and "True Blood". What have been some of your other favorite roles & series to work on and what does the future hold for Stacy Haiduk?
    Haiduk: Well I loved my role and the show "Kindred: The Embraced" which only lasted 7 episodes. I also enjoyed working on "Prison Break". I always wished they would last longer, though.

    Super Site: Thank you so much for taking to time to participate in our interview! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you at the Superman Celebration and hopefully we'll meet again soon.
    Haiduk: Thank you and a pleasure meeting you as well. Love and light!!

    The Brookfield, CT Library will host a special discussion on the publication, "Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman" featuring author Marc Tyler Nobleman on Monday, August 3rd at 7:00PM (EST).

    Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, two high school misfits in Depression-era Cleveland, were more like Clark Kent--meek, mild, and myopic--than his secret identity, Superman. Both boys escaped into the worlds of science fiction and pulp magazine adventure tales. Jerry wrote his own original stories and Joe illustrated them. In 1934, the summer they graduated from high school, they created a superhero who was everything they were not. It was four more years before they convinced a publisher to take a chance on their Man of Steel in a new format--the comic book.

    Nobleman will also be discussing his book "Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman" which covers the story of Bill Finger who, in addition to Bob Kane, was instrumental in the creation of Batman from concept to costume to character.

    The event is free and open to the public for ages 10 and up. Registration is required and can be done on-line, by phone at 203-755-6241, or in person at the library checkout desk.

    When Warner Bros. released the latest official trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" a few weeks ago at Comic-Con International: San Diego, fans were quick to take notice of a tattered Robin costume with grafitti by the Joker featured in the footage.

    A new rumor now indicates that director Zack Snyder's son Eli might be featured as the character of Batman's crime fighting partner in flashback scenes which may also showcase actor Jared Leto as the Joker.

    If this proves to be true, it would follow closely with the late-1980's Batman comic book story arc, "A Death in the Family" in which the second Robin, Jason Todd, is brutally beaten and ultimately murdered by the Joker.

    Eli has previously had roles in his father's films including "300" as a young Leonidas and "The Watchmen" where he portrayed a young Rorschach so there may be some truth and credibility to this latest rumor.

    However, until such time that Warner Bros. or the Zack Snyder camp makes an official announcement or confirmation in regard to this rumor, it is best to take it with a grain of salt for now.

    Actress Sarah Douglas will be appearing as a featured guest at the 2015 Stoke Con Trent - Comic & Memorabilia Show which takes place October 4th at the Leek Road Venue in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England.

    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 David Prowse ("Star Wars Trilogy"), Sylvester McCoy ("Dr. Who", "The Hobbit Trilogy"), and Rusty Goffe ("Willow", "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2").
