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.





Actor Dean Cain will be a featured guest at Krypton Comics in Omaha, Nebraska for "Free Comic Book Day" which takes place in Saturday, May 6th.

In 1998, Cain started the Angry Dragon Entertainment production company, which produced the TBS Superstation television series "Ripley's Believe It or Not!". He has also starred in several films, including "The Broken Hearts Club" (2000), "Out of Time" (2003) and "Bailey's Billions" (2004). In 2004, he portrayed Scott Peterson in the fact-based made for television movie "The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story." He also appeared in a recurring role as Casey Manning in the television series "Las Vegas." In 2007, Cain returned to the world of Superman when he guest-starred on the hit CW Series, "Smallville" in the seventh season episode "Cure" as the immortal Dr. Curtis Knox. Most recently, Cain appeared on the NBC competition series, "Stars Earn Stripes", served as host of the Spike TV reality series, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty", and starred in the hit 2014 film "God's Not Dead".

In 2015, Cain joined to cast of the popular TV series "Supergirl" in which he plays Jeremiah Danvers - foster dad of the title character - who was thought to have been deceased for many years but was recently revealed to be alive and well.

Lotus Entertainment and Paperchase Films are in the process of bringing an adaptation of Rick Bowers' 2012 novel "Superman Versus the Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate" to the big screen.

The nonfiction book details the behind-the-scenes true story of the 1946/47 radio drama in which the Man of Steel took on a thinly-veiled version of the actual KKK.

"Fighting the forces of evil with brain over brawn, artists taking down bullies and the power of a good piece of content, it's a real case of truth being cooler than fiction," stated Lotus Entertainment Producer Marc Rosen (Deadline). "We're excited to develop the thriller elements of the film in the vein of The Departed and Mississippi Burning."

The film's plot will closely follow that of the original novel in which a former Klan member works with the Anti-Defamation League and goes undercover in 1946 Atlanta to infiltrate the KKK.

The book is being adapted for the silver screen by Katherine Lindberg, who wrote and directed the film "Rain" in 2001.

    Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading creator of destinations, announced today that Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will feature six immersive worlds: Metropolis and Gotham City, inspired by the universe of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains; Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, and Dynamite Gulch, themed after iconic animated brands such as Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera; and Warner Bros. Plaza, reminiscent of old Hollywood, where these seminal characters and stories were originally brought to life.

    Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, which is located on Yas Island and set to open in 2018, will be a one-of-a-kind, world-class destination home to state-of-the-art thrill rides, interactive family friendly attractions, and unique live entertainment. From the action and adventure of DC to the wacky and wonderful world of Looney Tunes, this immersive and interactive new indoor experience brings some of the world’s most popular stories and characters under one roof.

    “Miral is proud to confirm that one year after announcing its plans to bring Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi to Yas island, we’re making great progress with our partners where we’re 60 percent complete and on track to launch in 2018.” said Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral. “We’re excited to reveal new details about the six unique immersive worlds at Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, which is a key part of our ambition to make Yas Island a top-ten global destination for family fun.”

    Guests will be swept away in Hollywood-style when they enter Warner Bros. Plaza, a celebration of all that is the Golden Age of Hollywood. Upon entering the park through the Warner Bros. Shield archway, guests will be transported to Hollywood where Art Deco architecture lines the streets and authentic, Tinseltown details evoke the rich history of Warner Bros.

    For the first time in the Middle East, Super Hero fans will be able to stroll the streets of Superman’s Metropolis, a modern-styled city of towering skyscrapers, and prowl the dark alleys of Batman’s Gotham City in this larger-than-life land where heroic exploits and action-packed family fun wait around every corner.

    The vibrant Cartoon Junction will bring together Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, and other famous characters under a stylized cartoon sky that will immerse guests in the wonderful world of animation. From the fun and frenetic to the out of this world, Dynamite Gulch will take you to the stars and deep into the canyon. Lastly, guests can explore Bedrock, a prehistoric world powered by birds and dinosaurs, where the modern stone-age family can have a “yabba dabba doo” time like The Flintstones.

    “Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will be a state-of-the-art themed experience that authentically brings some of the Studio’s most iconic characters and stories to life under one roof for the first time in the Middle East,” said Pam Lifford, President, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “We have been closely collaborating with our partners at Miral to faithfully construct immersive worlds that resonate with precise details and are thrilled to share these unique experiences with fans next year.”

    Situated on Yas Island, one of the world’s leading business, leisure and entertainment destinations, construction of the park is well underway, surpassing production expectations. The project has engaged 5,500 specialist engineers, workers and craftsmen to build a park that will span 1.65 million square feet. Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will be a fully immersive experience of six worlds comprised of 29 rides, shows, and attractions.

    Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, developed in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment will complement Miral’s Yas Island destination portfolio of themed parks. This includes Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, CLYMB, and opening in 2022, the recently announced SeaWorld Abu Dhabi. Yas Island also offers a wide range of sporting and entertainment experiences including Yas Marina Circuit, seven hotels, year-round events, a live performance and concert arena, 18-hole championship golf course, marina, beach, and the increasingly popular shopping destination, Yas Mall.

    Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment today announced that executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are teaming up for the all-new live-action drama series “Titans,” which will debut in 2018. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation’s “Young Justice: Outsiders,” the highly anticipated third season of the popular “Young Justice” series, is also ramping up for its first mission next year.

    Both fan-driven series are in early stages of production and will air exclusively on a DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service in 2018. Operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group, the new digital service will deliver an immersive experience designed just for DC fans.

    “Titans” follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. “Titans” is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

    “Titans” will be written by Akiva Goldsman (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Underground”), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”). Goldsman, Johns, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”) are executive producers of the series from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

    In “Young Justice: Outsiders,” the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, “Young Justice” reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.

    Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!,” “Justice League Action”) is executive producer of “Young Justice.” Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Superman Doomsday”) and Greg Weisman (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gargoyles”) are producers of the series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Emmy Award winner Phil Bourassa (“Young Justice,” “Justice League Dark,” “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”) serves as the series’ art director.

    The DC Comics-based sitcom "Powerless" which had aired on Thursday nights on NBC has been removed from network's line-up.

    The comedy series stars Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk, Ron Funches & Alan Tudyk and takes place at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises based in Charm City, that specializes in products for ordinary humans who are poised to be victims of the battles between superheroes and supervillains.

    Following a premiere back in February to less-than-impressive ratings, the series has suffered a steady decline in viewership with each new episode and has not been able to catch on with viewers in any significant way.

    "Powerless will not air this week or next," stated Executive Producer Patrick Schumacker via Twitter. "This, I know for sure. I can guess some other things but they're not good. Thanks for watching."

    Upcoming episodes titled "No Consequence Day" and "Win, Luthor, Draw" have been replaced on the NBC schedule with episodes of the comedy series "Superstore."

    As of this writing, there has been no official announcement from NBC in regard to the scheduling change or the future of the show for that matter.

    The Main Branch of the Cleveland, OH Public Library will present a free screening of the 1978 blockbuster "Superman: The Movie" on Saturday, May 6th at 3:00pm in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium.

    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 free screening is part of the opening day festivities for the "Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton" exhibit which will be on display at the library for several months and showcases memorabilia, art, & artifacts from the Mike Curtis Collection of Superman memorabilia and other prominent collectors.

    Warner Bros. has released the international trailer for "Justice League" which features most of the same footage previously seen in last month's trailer but with a heavier focus on Batman. Check it out below:

    In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, actress Diane Lane was asked about her thoughts on the less-than-popular 'Save Martha' scene from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    Lane dismissed the criticism and found the scene appropriate to the storyline stating, "It's the compassion for a man who's lost his mother. When you understand the wound, you can work better with people."

    Lane also went on to confirm her return to the role of Martha Kent in "Justice League" saying, "I don't think I'm allowed to talk much about it but it was good for me, selfishly, to have a reunion with everyone and meeting some of the new characters."

    "Justice League" stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Ray Fisher as Cyborg/Ray Fisher, Jason Mamoa as Aquaman/Arthur Curry, Ezra Miller as The Flash/Barry Allen, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf.

    Actor Mark Gibbon has been cast in the role of General Zod on "Supergirl" and will appear in the season 2 finale of the hit CW series.

    The iconic Superman villain had been rumored to be appearing on the show earlier this week and now CBR has confirmed with The CW that the rumor is indeed true.

    The role of Zod will certainly not be Gibbon's first venture into the superhero television/film universe as the actor has previously appeared in "Man of Steel" as an oil rig worker and in three different roles on "Smallville".

    While it is currently unknown how General Zod will make his debut in the Supergirl season finale, there is a possibility it could involve the return of Non (Chris Vance) who has not been seen on the series since season 1 when he was blinded and defeated by Supergirl.

    It's also possible that his appearance will be featured as just a cameo to set up a larger role as the season 3 primary villain. This year's finale will also feature the return of Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant and Tyler Hoechlin as Superman/Clark Kent.

    The season two finale of "Supergirl" is scheduled to air on Monday, May 22nd.

    HISTORY® reveals the surprising true beginnings of America’s legendary superhero characters in a new, two-part documentary special, “Superheroes Decoded,” premiering Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT. The first superheroes emerged in the dark days of the Great Depression and evolved into the blockbuster franchises we know today – their epic origin story is the story of America.

    With rare access to top creators at both DC and Marvel, “Superheroes Decoded” uncovers how the rise of the superhero parallels America’s rise as a superpower in the 20th century, evolving through the decades into a uniquely American mythology that has captured audiences across the globe. Using modern film clips, vintage comic artwork, historical archival material, and interviews with dozens of experts, fans and creators such as Captain America: Civil War star, Anthony Mackie; Captain America: Civil War directors, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo; A Game of Thrones author, George R. R. Martin; Iron Man Director, Jon Favreau; former President of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee; and best-selling author and DC comic writer Brad Meltzer; “Superheroes Decoded” tells the story of the modern era through the lens of America’s greatest fictional heroes.

    Part one explores the making of the iconic American superhero. From the creation of Superman, Batman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and beyond, these all-American legends have endured through decades of war, triumph and scandal, constantly evolving to reflect the country’s changing values in a tumultuous world. From World War II and Vietnam to Watergate and the tragedy of 9/11, these mythic heroes embody America’s deepest fears and greatest aspirations.

    Part two examines the American rebel and how sometimes being a hero means breaking the rules. From the beginning, superheroes like The X-Men, The Hulk, Black Panther, Iron Man, Luke Cage, and Wolverine have challenged authority and fought for outsiders, a battle that reflects the country’s most profound real-world divisions and struggles for justice. From their often controversial origins to recent resurgence in movies of today, these rebels redefine heroism for a new generation.

    “Superheroes Decoded” is produced for HISTORY by Warrior Poets. Morgan Spurlock and Jeremy Chilnick are executive producers for Warrior Poets. Josh Mensch serves as co-executive producer for Warrior Poets. Kristen Burns serves as executive producer for HISTORY. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for “Superheroes Decoded.”

    At the recent London red carpet event for the TV series "Genius", actor Michael McElhatton ("Game of Thrones") revealed that he has an unnamed role in "Justice League".

    "I can't really tell you anything about that. Who knows, maybe they're doing reshoots?", said McElhatton to Red Carpet News TV. "I can't really say, but it looks pretty amazing."

    "It's hard to know, they shoot so much stuff," he continued in regard to the overall tone of Justice League. "There's probably going to be a lot more humor in it, I think would be the main difference compared to [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice]."

    While McElhatton could not reveal what character he is portraying in "Justice League", he did offer up a few key details of the scene he shot for the film.

    "The scene I did... well at the moment I can say it's a big kind of opening scene. It was pretty dark actually, in it's tone. But in a good way... I quite like that. It wasn't comic book-y, but you can thread a certain amount of humor in it, which maybe [Batman v Superman] was lacking."

    "Justice League" premieres in theaters worldwide on November 17th.

    When production officially began on "Superman: The Movie", many well-known actors were initially considered for the lead role of the Man of Steel including Warren Beatty.

    Ultimately, Beatty would turn down the role and the decision was made to cast an relatively unknown actor which would lead to Christopher Reeve winning the part; a role any fan will agree that he was born to play.

    In a recent interview on the Graham Norton Show, Beatty briefly talked about the opportunity he had to play the iconic superhero and why he decided to pass on the part.

    "I was offered it but I didn't think it was a good idea to put a comic strip into a movie," said Beatty. "They were insistent I think about it so I got my assistant to go out and buy me some long underwear."

    "I put them on, looked at myself in a full-length mirror and picked up the phone to say, 'Just forget it!'".

    In addition to Beatty, other actors tapped to play the role of Superman included Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, John Voight, and Patrick Wayne; son of screen legend John Wayne. Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and singer Neil Diamond were also considered for the part.

    Beatty's decision to pass on the role of Superman allowed him to star in and co-direct the hit 1978 fantasy-comedy "Heaven Can Wait" which would go on to be nominated for nine Academy Awards.
