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.

To further hype the upcoming release of "Justice League", fans can now become a member of the iconic team using five new Facebook camera effects released by Warner Bros. using "mainstream augmented reality".

By opening the Facebook camera, tapping the magic wand icon to open the camera effects tray, and tapping the "mask" category, users can turn themselves into Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Wonder Woman.

The facial recognition technology also applies special effects designed to reflect each character's superpowers when users raise or wiggle their eyebrows in the live camera view.

To achieve the highest quality possible, Warner Bros. worked with actual movie CG assets optimized to run in the camera and is the first film studio to design and develop major motion picture camera effects using AR Studio and the Camera Effects Platform.

At this time, the AR Studio is still in a closed beta version that only allows approved developers access to the code in order to design their own effects. However, Facebook states that the "Justice League" superhero masks are just the beginning for the new AR features.

Actors Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher recently reunited for the first time in 20 years at the Supernova Comic Con & Gaming Expo in Queensland, Australia.

The two starred together for four seasons as the title characters on the hit ABC television series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman".

To commemorate the reunion, the two snapped a selfie from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge where Hatcher was all smiles with her arms wrapped around Cain who raised his fist in an iconic Superman pose.

While it's been two decades since they starred as the Man of Steel and Lois Lane, both have returned to the world of Superman in recent years with respective appearances on both "Smallville" and, more recently, "Supergirl".

Previously, Hatcher and Cain had roles on The CW’s Smallville and Supergirl — the latter where Hatcher had the chance to tap into her villainous side as Queen Rhea of Daxam. Cain, meanwhile, played M.I.A. Danvers patriarch Jeremiah.

Guests riding the "Superman: The Ride" roller coaster at Six Flags New England will no longer have the option of wearing virtual reality headsets following their recent removal by the park.

"At SFNE, VR was moved to Mind Eraser for this year due to the massive lines it caused for Superman," states Theme Park Insider writer AJ Hummel. "That is the primary reason Mind Eraser got new trains and an extensive refurbishment over the off-season."

"Supposedly the contract with Samsung is up after Labor Day weekend, so VR will be ended chain-wide after that date (at least until a better system is developed)," adds Hummel. "While I'm not 100% sure, what I've heard is that executives aren't very happy with the performance of the equipment and guest response has been generally mixed, so the Samsung contract likely won't be renewed."

The virtual riding experience equipped riders with Samsung Gear VR headsets to feel the heart-pumping adrenaline of steep drops, inverted loops and powerful twists and turns as gyros, accelerometers and proximity sensors synchronized all of the action in an incredibly realistic 360-degree virtual reality world.

As of this writing, the VR experience is still available on the "Superman Krypton Coaster" at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, TX and the "Superman: Ride of Steel" coaster at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

A new rumor indicates that Warner Bros. is discreetly developing a direct sequel to "Man of Steel" simultaneously with other DCEU properties that have already been scheduled for release.

The anonymous source behind the rumor goes on to state that the film will also feature the introduction of both Supergirl and Brainiac to the DCEU:

"The sequel to Man of Steel has been developing in secret. Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder finished writing a story for the film back in November. Multiple writers were approached to turn into a screenplay including the writers from Watchmen and the 300 movie series. Brainiac will be the villain and Supergirl will be introduced to the DCEU.”

Considering that actress Melissa Benoist already stars as Supergirl on the hit CW television series, it would be interesting to see who the studio might cast as a big screen version of the iconic superhero.

Of course, these claims are completely speculation at this time and should be taken with a grain of salt until such time that Warner Bros. releases an official statement confirming or denying the rumor.

Although heavily anticipated by fans, "Man of Steel 2" is currently without an attached director or a target release date.

It was recently announced that Danny Elfman has replaced Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg) on scoring and compose duties for "Justice League".

Elfman is certainly no stranger to the superhero movie genre having previously worked on director Tim Burton's iconic "Batman" movie in 1989 as well as Sony's original "Spider-Man" starring Tobey Maguire and both "Avengers" films.

Junkie XL, who previously scored "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" following the departure of Hans Zimmer, issued the following statement in regard to the passing of the torch to Elfman:

As my mentor Hans Zimmer told me: you haven’t made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project. So I guess I finally graduated this week. It pains me to leave the project, but a big thanks to Zack for asking me to be part of his vision, and I wish Danny, Joss and Warner Bros. all the best with 'Justice League.'

While no official reason has been given by Warner Bros. for bringing in Elfman to score the film, it is speculated that it was Joss Whedon's decision who has previously worked with Elfman on the "Avengers" movies. Whedon recently took over as director on "Justice League" after Zack Snyder stepped down following a family tragedy.

As for Junkie XL, his next project will be composing the official score for the upcoming "Tomb Raider" reboot.

The recent passing of legendary actor Adam West was a shock to fans worldwide including many who were in attendance at the recent Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL.

In the following video from SyFy Wire, celebration attendees including Superman actor Dean Cain share their heartfelt thoughts & memories of West and what the iconic Batman star meant to them:

The city of Metropolis also paid respect to the memory of West by placing a black arm band on the 15-foot-tall Superman Statue located in the heart of the downtown business district.

West passed away in Los Angeles on June 9, 2017 following a brief battle with leukemia. He was 88.

Reshoots and post-production work is currently underway on "Justice League" at two former Royal Air Force airship sheds in Bedfordshire, England under the guidance of Joss Whedon who took over directing duties from Zack Snyder last month.

While it is currently unknown what additional footage is being films, Batman Notes has posted several outdoor images from around the set of mostly various vehicles and busses. However, a few images feature the Knights Templar symbol which has been used throughout history including during World War I by Germany on it's planes.

It's quite possible that the symbol indicates that a portion of the new footage being filmed involves flashbacks pertaining to the "Wonder Woman" film which is set during the time perioud of the first World War. However, the symbol might also point directly to the Knights Templar who are briefly featured in the original "Justice League" teaser trailer burying a Mother Box.

For now, this is all just constructive speculation and no one will know for certain if either of these theories will be proven true until "Justice League" hits theaters worldwide on November 17th.

Check out all the set photos from the Bedfordshire filming site at BatmanNotes.com.

Following an exciting four days of festivities & entertainment, the 39th Annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL has officially wrapped and the staff of the Superman Super Site was once again there for the 10th straight year.

The event kicked off with an opening ceremony on Thursday, June 8th with welcome speeches by celebration co-chairs Lisa Gower & Karla Ogle as well as Metropolis Mayor Billy McDaniel and an official ribbon cutting by "Super Miles", winner of the children's online Super Ambassador contest, and Metropolis' official Superman, Josh Boultinghouse.

Other first day activities included music under the main tent featuring the Ball Brothers & Adam Crabb, carnival rides, opportunities to visit both the Super Museum & the Americana Hollywood Museum, and a special presentation titled "Superman - The All American Hero (1941-1966) hosted by John Field.

Friday, June 10th was the first full day of the celebration and saw the arrival of celebrity guests Sarah Douglas (Ursa - "Superman: The Movie," "Superman: II") and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane - The Christopher Reeve "Superman" Films) who was unfortunately running late for the first autograph session of the day and did not arrive until the afternoon session.

While everyone waited in line to meet Kidder during the afternoon session, Douglas was a true saint and would occassionally leave her table and visit with everyone in line to chat and take selfies.

Festival attendees also came out once again in large numbers to attend our 8th Annual Superman Super Site Meet & Greet at the always popular Metropolis restaurant, Fat Edd's Roadhouse. A great time was had by all with door prizes ranging from DVD's & Blurays to movie posters and many other donated items from area merchants.

In addition to the always popular Artists Alley & Writers Way - which featured comic book artist/writer John Ostrander, animator/storyboard artist/illustrator Todd Aaron Smith, and author Gwenda Bond (Lois Lane series "Fallout," "Double Down," and "Triple Threat") - this year's festival also included a few new events including a "Lemon Lane" eating contest and jigsaw puzzle competition as well as the Annual Super-Con that played host to various vendors selling vintage comic books and superhero collectibles.

Other Friday events included the "Superman - The Movie: Restored International Cut" movie event hosted by Jim Bowers at the Baymont Theater followed by an 80's Dance Party under the Metro Tent featuring the extremely talented music group Breakfast Club and the "2nd Annual Metro Rock-n-Retro" rock band and classic video game competition to cap off the evening.

Saturday is always the biggest day of the celebration and this year was certainly no different. Fans lined up to see Margot Kidder and Sarah Douglas who were back at the autograph zone for their second day while others began lining up late Friday evening for the opportunity to snag an autograph session pass to meet both Dean Cain ("Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman") and James Marsters ("Smallville," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") at the Baymont Theater.

Dean was making his second journey to the celebration while Marsters was attending for the first time and both actors were an absolute joy to meet and, in addition to their autograph sessions, huge crowds turned out for a chance to take photos of the two actors at the world famous 15-foot-tall Superman Statue and see them at two separate and highly entertaining Q&A events under the Metropolis Tent.

Other day-three events included the "Save the Massac Benefit Auction" which was followed by an outdoor screening of various episodes of the "Adventures of Superman" from 1953 - 1958 featuring actress Noel Neill. Capping off the day's festivities was the "Noel Neill Hollywood Ball" at the Baymont Theater which featured attendees wearing attire inspired by the 1930's & 40's and music by the Breakfast Club.

Sunday was, sadly, the final day of the celebration and kicked off with a "Superfriends of Metropolis" group photo-op at the Superman statue. Next up was "Name that Movie! with John Field" at the Baymont Theater followed by Superman Super Site contributing reporter, Chris Brockow's popular "Stump the Superman Expert" contest at the main Metropolis Tent which offerred the large crowd in attendance the opportunity to win various prizes by answering Superman trivia questions.

The contest was followed shortly thereafter by the always popular costume contest which featured numerous fans dressing as their favorite comic book, movie, television, and sci-fi related characters. This year's categories included Best Character, Best Custom Character or Original Conception, and Best Group or Duo. We will have a full re-cap of the costume contest posted in the coming days.

The celebration officially ended with an annual closing skit followed by a screening of the "Festival Director's Choice" from the Metropolis Film Festival.

So ends another wonderfully exciting year of the annual Superman Celebration and thus begins the official count down to next years 40th festival which is already being hyped as the biggest celebration EVER!

Able to leap movie genres with a single bound, producer-director Richard Donner was given a special tribute at the Academy on June 7, 2017, with a gathering of many of his friends and colleagues turning up for a warm, unforgettable evening in the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. From action to horror, fantasy to superhero films, Donner has carved his own path in Hollywood since he burst out of the television scene for a career spanning over five decades.

Following a welcome to the packed house by Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the first Donner tribute came from two major names in the worlds of film and comic books who got their start as his employees: Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios, and Geoff Johns of DC Entertainment, who hailed Donner’s Superman (1978) as the gold standard of superhero films and the product of Donner’s efforts to save the American superhero icon from a terrible potential script for the film that had been sent to him. Feige noted the importance of the word “verisimilitude” that Donner used as a mantra for that film and many more, to honor the source material and “take it seriously.” They also both recalled a memorable, disastrous moment when they were both on the Warner Bros. lot as Feige attempted to take Donner’s Suburban out to be gassed up, only for things to take a catastrophic turn that still leaves a mark at the Hollywood studio.

Longtime Donner editor Stuart Baird appeared via a prerecorded testimonial recorded in England to introduce a clip from Donner’s major breakthrough film, the trendsetting horror film The Omen (1976), noting the use of a tricycle he cheekily pointed out as an inspiration for The Shining (1980). Following the release of Superman and the director’s rocky relationship with its sequel, Superman II (1980), Donner moved on to the acclaimed slice-of-life drama Inside Moves (1980), which was represented by two of its stars, John Savage (who spoke of Donner’s ability to “take a good script and turn it into gold”) and David Morse, who made his debut with the film thanks to a quick-witted fib about his basketball abilities.

Donner’s wife, producer Lauren Shuler Donner, was full of stories about falling in love with this “defender of the underdog” during the years-long process of making Ladyhawke (1985), which was originally supposed to be shot in Eastern Europe but wound up in Italy instead. She was 33 when the film went before the cameras and in the process of getting a divorce, which provided the chance for a courtship that led to a movie world love story that continues to this day. Though they’ve only worked together directly three times, they co-own their production company and, as she says, she finds that “Dick Donner directing is the sexiest man alive.”

Another 1985 film for Donner was the Steven Spielberg-produced The Goonies, one of the biggest cult films of that decade, and three of the title characters were on hand in the theater: Jeff B. Cohen (who played Chunk and is now an entertainment lawyer after Donner surprised him by paying for his college education), Ke Huy Quan (who played Data, became a stunt and action choreographer, and noted of his child actor energy, “I’m sure I’m personally responsible for some of those gray hairs” on Donner’s head), and Corey Feldman (who played Mouth and recalled warming up to Donner when the project transitioned from Spielberg as director). Present via a phone-recorded message was castmate Martha Plimpton. More humor was provided by the colorful Carol Kane, who drew an affectionate analogy between Donner and a little league coach before introducing a clip of her indelible turn as Bill Murray’s hard-hitting Ghost of Christmas Present in Scrooged (1988).

Another child actor given a big boost by Donner, Joseph Mazzello, credited Donner as “the reason I love making movies” after being cast in his second feature role in Radio Flyer (1992), which also found ways to work in roles for several of Mazzello’s family members – a recurring Donner touch. Prerecorded cheerful messages were provide by Jodie Foster, who starred in Maverick (1994), and Warner Bros. executive and current AFI chairman Robert A. Daly, while Oscar-winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) got one of the biggest laughs of the night when he told the story of how he and his young son first met Donner on the Warner Bros. lot – an encounter that would soon lead to Helgeland writing the screenplays for two Donner films, Assassins (1995) and Conspiracy Theory (1997).

The one movie series guided by Donner in all of its installments is also one of the most beloved action franchises in movie history, launched with Lethal Weapon (1987) and continuing with Lethal Weapon 2 (1989), Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) and Lethal Weapon 4 (1998). Riggs and Murtaugh themselves, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, proved their explosive chemistry hadn’t faded one bit over the years as they appeared on stage to settle the 30-year-old issue of a shirt they both wanted and launched into a rapid-fire string of banter that had the audience in stitches. After clips from the second and third films in the series, both stars were joined by Rene Russo and Donner himself for a reunion that had the visibly touched filmmaker himself tossing away his prepared speech and confessing, “I’m the luckiest person in the world. This industry is my friend.” He explained how much it meant to see so many friends he’d made over the years, thanks to a directing career that began with a suggestion from the great Martin Ritt when Donner was starting out as a young bit actor: “You can’t take direction. You ought to be a director.” That’s advice millions of moviegoers are still glad Donner took to heart.

June marks the 79th Anniversary of the 1938 debut of Superman in Action Comics #1 and Henry Cavill recently took to Instagram share his insight into the history of the iconic DC Comics character. Here's what he had to say:

Hi Everyone! I've been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled "The Reign of the Superman", which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the "superman" character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics
