Produced (concurrently with its first sequel) in the late 1970s and released in 1978, Superman almost wasn't even made, since Warner Bros. feared it would be two hours of campiness à la the 1960s Batman TV series (which had already gotten its own movie-length feature ).Who is the cool old guy in Superman movie?
There's a bit of Krypton right there on Earth, easily stolen. Cool Old Guy: Perry White, the editor of Daily Planet. Creator Cameo: Richard Donner has a cameo in the movie as the skeptical man who talks to Clark Kent in front of the televisions, right after the first appearance of Superman.When did the first Superman movie come out?
While it wasn't Superman's first live-action foray — it followed movie serials in 1948 and 1950, and a pilot movie in 1951 for a television series which ran from 1952 to 1958 — it went above and beyond them in terms of spectacle and special effects like never before seen on screen. noteIs Superman The first superhero?
While not quite the first superhero, he is certainly the Trope Codifier (and "super-" makes him the Trope Namer ). Has been published continuously by DC Comics for eight decades and counting. He first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June, 1938).
