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.






Theater actor Ray Fisher has landed the role of Cyborg/Victor Stone in director Zack Snyder's 2016 follow-up to "Man of Steel."

According to Variety, Fisher was selected for the role in the highly anticipated film after Warner Bros. spent the past couple of weeks testing various actors.

Variety goes on to state that the role, while not a significant one, paves the way for the character to be featured as a founding member of the Justice League in a big screen adaptation based on the iconic group of superheroes.

Warner Bros. has yet to issue an official statement on this latest casting news.

Stone will star alongside Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The yet-to-be-officially titled film also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

'Batman vs Superman' is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

The film is set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.

"The actress told THR that she had just came back from Detroit, where they're doing camera tests for the highly anticipated sequel. She said that she filmed a few shots of her feeling the Superman costume and joked that she hadn't had the chance to do the same with the Batman costume."

The UK based "What The Frock!" comedy troupe will team with the "Bristol Bad Film Club" for a special screening of the not-so-high-flying 1984 film, "Supergirl: The Movie" on Thursday, April 24th at 7:30pm.

The film stars actress Helen Slater in her first motion picture role in the title role alongside veteran actors Faye Dunaway (who received top billing) as the primary villain, Selena and Peter O'Toole as Zaltar.

The movie was a spin-off from the popular Superman film series starring Christopher Reeve but ultimately performed poorly at the box office and failed to impress critics and audiences. Slater, however, was nominated for a Saturn Award for her strong performance by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films.

"Supergirl: The Movie" runs 125 minutes and is rated PG. The screening will take place at The Cuban Bristol Cocktail Bar and Restaurant and is £7 per person in advance; £8 at the door. Food will be also be available for purchase at an additional price.

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Neil Cole

Following reports that Henry Cavill has joined director Zack Snyder in Detroit, MI to begin work on the 2016 follow-up to "Man of Steel," now comes word that the Superman actor was recently spotted in Chicago, IL.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Cavill along with his girlfriend, MMA fighter & actress Gina Carano, were spotted this past Sunday at Jack’s On Halsted in the Lakeview East neighborhood.

It remains unclear if Cavill was in the Chicago area to perform any work on the "Man of Steel" sequel which, according to Illinois Film Office director Betsy Steinberg, is not scheduled to begin until later this Fall.

While a vast majority of the first movie filmed in and around the Chicago area including Plano and Sugar Grove, the highly anticipated sequel is expected to primarily film in Michigan.

The yet-to-be-officially-titled film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

    Director Zack Snyder recently sat down with Forbes Magazine and talked about, among other things, his desire to reveal the Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman costumes which will be featured in the 2016 follow-up to "Man of Steel." Here's an excerpt:

    "The thing also that’s really fascinating for me is that, even just in the tests we’ve been doing, the costumes, right? You basically have Batman and Superman — and this is without Ben [Affleck] and Henry [Cavill] in the costumes, but just like the stand-ins, just testing to see what the costumes look like. And you have them standing there and they’re standing in the same shot — and then we have Wonder Woman, you know, all three of them in the same shot. Even just for a test, you really have to go, “Wow, that’s crazy!” Not only is it the first time that I’m seeing them, it’s the first time they’ve ever existed together on screen in a movie. And that’s kind of a huge deal. Even just Batman and Superman standing next to each other… [I]t’s kind of epic. You do sort of sense the weight of the pop culture iconography jumping out of its skin when you’re standing there looking at the two of them and Wonder Woman. It’s crazy. But it’s fun. I mean, I have the first photo, I’ve got it in my archive because I was like, “Okay, I better keep this, it’s gonna be worth something,” [laughs]

    When asked about when the public will get their first look at the new costumes, Snyder stated that he unfortunately does not know.

    "Unfortunately, I don’t even know the timeline... Because the movie takes place so far from now, it’s hard to know exactly. That all gets tied to marketing and strategies for the movie. It’s not just a free-for-all, which I’d love it to be. Because I take a picture of the suit with my camera– I’m actually staring at one right now in my office. And it’s just massive on my wall in my office and it’s epic, let me tell you! And I’m like, “God, I want to send this to the Internet immediately.” But I know I’m not allowed to [laughs]! I do value the sort of excitement of the way the film is [revealed]… the pieces that are released and sort of trickle out to everybody, and those reveals are exciting milestones for us."

    Snyder went on to reveal that a schedule has been established which, unlike with "Man of Steel", should prevent any photos of the costumes from being snapped by the paparazzi once filming begins.

    "The one nice thing is that, the schedule is designed carefully so that I don’t know that [paparazzi photos] will be [a problem]– but who knows, these cats are pretty good at getting the drop on us with these photos. But, when we finally do show it, it’s gonna be real fun. And it’s true, you gotta make sure– you’re gonna want the real shot."

    Snyder goes on to touch on such topics as the decision to bring Batman into the "Man of Steel" universe and the rumored rivalry between Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios.

    Read the complete interview at Forbes.com.

    The yet-to-be-officially titled film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

    The new film is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

    In a recent interview with Digital Spy, composer Hans Zimmer revealed that he will be re-teaming with director Zack Snyder to score the highly anticipated 2016 follow-up to "Man of Steel."

    "We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie [Interstellar], that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas," stated the Oscar-winning composer.

    Zimmer went out to add that he hopes to put together a new theme for Ben Affleck's Batman that differs from his work in director Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy.

    "That's my problem, that's my dilemma. I don't want to betray, if that's the right word, the Dark Knight movies. That was Christian [Bale], it was Christian's role," he explained.

    "It's not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable to that period. So it's really about, 'Is there something else I can find that I haven't tapped into?' Which I don't know until I sit down with Zack."

    The yet-to-be-officially-titled film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
