Cartoons Comics & Toons


Superman, aka "the Man of Steel", is a fictional character and superhero who first appeared in Action Comics #1 in 1938, and for several decades has been one of the most popular and well-known comic book icons of all-time.
The character, created by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel for National Comics (today DC Comics), subsequently appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, and video games. Superman was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton and, as an infant, was rocketed to Earth by Jor-El, his scientist father, moments before Krypton exploded. The rocket landed on Earth outside the town of Smallville, where young Kal-El was discovered and adopted by the amiable Jonathan and Martha Kent. As he grew, he discovered that he possessed powers far beyond those of mortal men. When not fighting the forces of evil as Superman, he lives amongst humanity as Clark Kent, a "mild-mannered reporter" for the Daily Planet. Clark works alongside reporter Lois Lane, with whom he is romantically involved. In current comics continuity, they are married, however, the character has had several other relationships throughout his years in comics. The character's adventures are today published in a number of comic books.

Superman Movies


Superman (as it was shown on-screen and in the movie poster--see illustration), also known as Superman: The Movie (as it was called in pre-release advertising), is a superhero movie, released by Warner Bros. in 1978, and based on the popular DC Comics character of the same name.
Christopher Reeve starred in the title role and that of Clark Kent, while top-billed Marlon Brando played Superman's father, Jor-El—for a record-setting salary at the time—of $4,700,000 for eight minutes of screen time; other prominent cast members were Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, Ned Beatty as Otis, Jackie Cooper as Perry White, Glenn Ford as Pa Kent, Valerie Perrine as Eve Teschmacher, Marc McClure as Jimmy Olsen, and Jeff East as the young Clark Kent. It was directed by Richard Donner and executive produced by Ilya Salkind, with music by John Williams.

Superman II

Superman II is a 1980 sequel to the 1978 feature film Superman. Unusual for such a major production, its release in Europe and Australia was in late 1980 but was not distributed in the United States until June 1981.

Superman III

Superman III is a 1983 movie that was the third of four movies based upon the long-running DC Comics superhero produced in the late 1970s-early 1980s.
The cast includes: Christopher Reeve as Superman/Clark Kent; Richard Pryor as Gus Gorman; Jackie Cooper as Perry White; Marc McClure as Jimmy Olsen; Annette O'Toole as Lana Lang; Annie Ross as Vera Webster; Pamela Stephenson as Lorelei Ambrosia; Robert Vaughn as Ross Webster; Margot Kidder as Lois Lane.
The film was the last Reeve/Superman film produced by Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind. It was followed by Supergirl in 1984 and the non-Salkind sequel Superman IV: The Quest for Peace in 1987.

Superman IV : The Quest For Peace

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace is a 1987 film, the last of the Superman theatrical movies starring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel. In this film Superman battled Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) and his creation, a super-powered evil clone of Superman called Nuclear Man.
Unlike the previous three movies, which were produced by the Salkinds, the fourth movie was produced by Golan-Globus' Cannon Films, in association with Warner Bros.

Superman Returns

Superman Returns is a 2006 American superhero film based on the fictional character and superhero Superman. The film is currently being directed by Bryan Singer and the role of Superman/Clark Kent will be portrayed by Brandon Routh. The roles of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor will be played by Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey, respectively. The screenplay has been written by Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris. Filming initiated in February 2005 and the movie is expected to be released in the United States on June 30, 2006. The continuity established in Superman: The Movie will serve as its back-story, or as Singer puts it, a 'vague history'. Bryan Singer plans to incorporate unused footage of Marlon Brando's performance as Jor-El from material directed by Richard Donner for Superman: The Movie and the original version of Superman II. In addition, pieces and motifs of John Williams' classic film score for Superman: The Movie will be adapted by composer John Ottman and incorporated into the film's new score. Bryan Singer is also reported to be targetting for a PG rating rather than the PG-13 rating of current superhero-themed movies.
