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. Consumer Products is bringing the big guns to Licensing Expo 2017, with displays promoting this November's Justice League movie alongside the stand-alone Wonder Woman and Aquaman features. J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World and the ever-building Lego slate are among other projects to be represented.

Properties from multiple divisions within Warners will be on display during the event, including theatrical, animated and live-action television projects — including a number inspired by DC Entertainment's characters, including the CW's Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, as well as the cross media DC Super Hero Girls. Also present, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the Dwayne Johnson vehicle Rampage and the Steven Spielberg-directed Ready Player One.

"With a global consumer in mind, and an impressive lineup of licensees and partners around the world, WBCP is focused on offering fans a wide range of the products, programs and immersive experiences they want and expect from us," Pam Lifford, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said in a statement. "WBCP continues to partner with top-tier licensing, retail and promotional partners worldwide, to bring the Studio’s vast portfolio and powerful content to fans, allowing them the opportunity to experience their favorite brands, franchises, characters and stories — anytime, anywhere."

Pride of place for WBCP this year, however, is reserved for Justice League, with the costumes of the legendary superhero team from the movie on display during the Expo itself. Also unveiled at the Expo will be #JoinTheLeague, a global initiative offering fans the chance to get exclusive content, sneak peeks and entrance into a number of sweepstakes tied into the movie's release this fall. More information about the campaign, which will run in 13 languages and feature a special "#JoinTheLeague Saturday" promotion Aug. 12, can be found at www.jointheleague.com.

Zack Snyder has stepped down from "Justice League" due to a family tragedy and handed over directorial duties to Joss Whedon ("The Avengers," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").

Following a recent screening at Warner Bros. of a rough cut of the film, Snyder revealed that his 20-year-old daughter, Autumn Snyder, had passed away in March from suicide and that he was stepping away as director to be with his family during this difficult time.

"In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it," stated Snyder during an emotional interview with The Hollywood Reporter alongside his wife Deborah.

"The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I've come to the realization," he added. "I've decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I'm having a hard time."

Autumn was Snyder's daughter from his prior marriage to Denise Snyder and was a student at Sarah Lawrence college at the time of her death. According to his wife, Deborah, Autumn loved "to write, to write, to write" and had recently completed a sci-fi novel, which they hope to publish one day.

Warner Bros. is in full support of Snyder's decision and has assured fans that the director's vision for "Justice League" is still intact.

"What they are going through is unimaginable, and my heart - our hearts - go out to them," said Warner Bros. Pictures President Toby Emmerich. "We're not introducing any new characters. It's the same characters in some new scenes. He's handing the baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, we'll still end up with a great movie."

Snyder had initially planned on staying on to finish post-production work on the film as well as the shooting of a few additional scenes. However, his perspective about movie-making and life in general has greatly changed following Autumn's untimely passing.

"I want the movie to be amazing, and I'm a fan, but that all pales pretty quickly in comparison," he said. "I know the fans are going to be worried about the movie, but there are seven other kids that need me. In the end, it's just a movie - it's a great movie - but it's just a movie.”

The majority of filming on "Justice League" has already been completed and Snyder has been collaborating with Whedon over the past month in order to ensure a smooth transition from one director to another.

The Quad Theater in New York City, NY will present two screenings of the 1978 blockbuster "Superman: The Movie" in original 35mm format on Tuesday, May 23rd at 6:30pm and Saturday, May 27th at 11:00am.

One of the most well-regarded superhero films of all time, Superman was a box-office smash when it rocketed to Earth in 1978. The last son of the dead planet Krypton, Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) is found as a baby by Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter) when his spaceship crashes just outside of Smallville, USA. Given the name "Clark" by his adopted parents, the boy grows up strong in the American heartland, developing amazing powers under the light of the yellow sun. One day, Clark finds a glowing crystal, and with it finds out about his alien heritage, the knowledge imparted to him by his birth father, Jor-El (Marlon Brando). The boy becomes a man, and moves to Metropolis to work for the Daily Planet newspaper, finding love in Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and danger in the form of criminal genius Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman).

The May 27th screening will also feature a presentation of Charlie Chaplin's 1917 classic "The Immigrant" which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Tickets for either "Superman: The Movie" screening are $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for seniors and children. For more information or to purchase tickets on-line, please visit QuadCinema.com.

Actor Jack O'Halloran will be among the featured guests at the upcoming 4th Annual Smallville Comic-Con which takes place June 24th & 25th at the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Kansas.

O'Halloran is best remembered for his starring role in "Superman: The Movie" and "Superman: II" as the mute villian Non. Prior to his acting career, he was known as "Irish" Jack O'Halloran and was a rated heavyweight boxing contender in the early 1970s.

The 6' 6" native of Runnemede, New Jersey, was considered one of boxing's most promising heavyweight hopefuls after he remained undefeated in his first 16 professional matches. O'Halloran went on to defeat former title contenders Cleveland Williams, Terry Daniels, Manuel Ramos and Danny McAlinden. In 1972 he won the California state heavyweight championship with a victory over Henry Clark. Scoring an upset victory over eighth-ranked Al "Blue" Lewis in 1973, O'Halloran was on the verge of a bout with Muhammad Ali when he was shockingly knocked out by Jimmy Summerville in Miami Beach, Florida. Even though he knocked out Summerville in the rematch, O'Halloran was never in contention again. He retired in 1974 with a record of 34-21-2 with 17 knockout victories. He lost to future heavyweight champions George Foreman and Ken Norton. Following his retirement, he launched his successful career as a character actor.

In 2011, O'Halloran published his first novel, "Family Legacy" which takes place during the explosive years of American Organized crime from the point of view of a true insider. Thinly veiled as "fiction", the book sheds new light on the Kennedy assassination, our government's partnership with the Mob, and so much more.

Recent rumors that Warner Bros. was planning drastic reshoots on director Zack Snyder's highly anticipated "Justice League" movie have been denied by the studio.

As opposed to what happened with last year's "Suicide Squad" that did see quite a bit of reshoots take place, a studio insider has been quoted by The Wrap as stating, "there has been no additional photography to date on Justice League, we have planned and will shoot additional pickups early summer."

The insider went on to add that "additional photography has always been planned like most pictures in general but certainly for a tentpole of Justice League's size and scope."

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

"Justice League" is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

"Justice League" will premiere in theaters on November 17, 2017.

In the most anticipated story of the year, New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns confirms Watchmen will make an epic return to the DC Universe this November. As “The Button” crossover comes to a close in FLASH #22 this Wednesday, the four page epilogue affirms the mystery will continue with DOOMSDAY CLOCK from Johns and legendary artists Gary Frank and Brad Anderson.

“It's time. Last year, the DC Universe confronted the legacy of Watchmen in Rebirth the way Watchmen confronted the legacy of superhero comics three decades ago,” explains writer Geoff Johns. “Thematically, and metaphorically, there was no better choice than to use Dr. Manhattan. If you’re going to have a conflict between optimism and pessimism, a battle between the very forces of hope and despair, you need to have someone who personifies the cynicism that has leaked into our hearts and also has the ability to affect the entire DCU. It’s all paying off this November with DOOMSDAY CLOCK.”

“DOOMSDAY CLOCK is a story for fans who love the DC Universe and Watchmen and want to see what a master of this genre creates when he puts them together,” says Frank. “As for my artistic approach to the series, each panel is extremely detailed and I am constantly thinking through the position of every single element.”

Additionally, SYFY and Universal Cable Productions announced a new development project based on author George R.R. Martin's novella "NIGHTFLYERS".

    "SYFY is partnering with the biggest names in the business to tell the boldest stories in the sci-fi world, and I can't think of any bigger and bolder than "KRYPTON," "HAPPY!," and NIGHTFLYERS," said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

    KRYPTON

    Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel's home planet, KRYPTON follows Superman's grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, "The Halcyon") - whose House of El was ostracized and shamed - as he fights to redeem his family's honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Based on DC characters, KRYPTON is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer ("Man of Steel," "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "The Dark Knight" trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler ("Sleepy Hollow") will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

    In addition to Cuffe, KRYPTON stars Georgina Campbell ("Broadchurch"), Elliot Cowan ("Da Vinci's Demons"), Ann Ogbomo ("World War Z"), Rasmus Hardiker ("Your Highness"), Wallis Day ("Will"), Aaron Pierre ("Tennison") with Ian McElhinney ("Game of Thrones").

    The pilot teleplay was written by Goyer and Kindler, from a story by Ian Goldberg ("Once Upon a Time," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") & Goyer, with Colm McCarthy ("She Who Brings Gifts," "Peaky Blinders") serving as director and co-executive producer. KRYPTON is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC.

    "KRYPTON" and "HAPPY!" will join a rich 2017-18 lineup of original scripted series on SYFY, including sci-fi drama "THE EXPANSE" and fantasy series "THE MAGICIANS," both greenlit for third seasons for 2018; time travel thriller "12 MONKEYS," greenlit for third and fourth seasons for 2017 and 2018; "KILLJOYS," which returns for its third season in Summer 2017; and the "CHANNEL ZERO" horror anthology, which will return in October 2017 for its second installment.

    Ohio House of Representatives member Bill Patmon has introduced a bill before the Ohio Legislature which would designate June 12th as "Superman Day" in honor of the Man of Steel's co-creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

    "The 12th day of June is designated as 'Superman Day' to recognize the Ohio birthplace of one of the creators of the superhero who stood for 'truth, justice and the American way,'" states Patmon in the bill. "For on this day, let it be known that Superman is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Superman."

    Patmon represents Ohio's 10th district which includes the Glenville neighborhood where both Siegel and Shuster lived. He is a long-time supporter of the two and was instrumental in the passage of the Superman license plate legislation in 2013.

    The "Superman Day" bill was first introduced by Patmon on March 25th and will receive a second reading in committee today before moving on to the General Assembly which will vote on the bill at a future time.

    A previous "Superman Day" took place on April 18, 2013 when Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson made the proclamation in celebration of the 75th anniversary of Action Comics #1 which featured the debut appearance of Superman.
