When I first learned that Warner Brothers Studios and D.C. Comics planned to release another Superman movie, I did not greet the news with any enthusiasm. In fact, my first reaction was sheer frustration. The last D.C. Comics movie I wanted to see was another Superman movie.
There were so many reasons for my negative reaction to the news of a new Superman movie. The last one I saw was 2006's "SUPERMAN RETURNS", which had been directed by Bryan Singer. There had also been two television series about the Man of Steel in the...
The 2006 Summer movie season was a memorable one for me. I never got around to reviewing movies like"MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III", "THE DaVINCI'S CODE", and "X-MEN 3: THE LAST STAND". I had just started on my first blog and never really bothered to put much effort into a movie review. However, I did managed to write a few words about "SUPERMAN RETURNS".
I wish I could say that I had loved "SUPERMAN RETURNS". I wish I could say that I found it very original. I wish I could . . . but I cannot....
Superman's one of the most popular superheroes ever made. Because of his popularity he has had eight live action films. Justice League is excluded, because Superman doesn't have a big enough role in that film for it to count.
8. Superman and the Mole Man
Although the first Christopher Reeve Superman is considered to be the first Superman this obscure film from the 1950s is Superman's first film. The film has George Reeves as Superman who also played Superman in a live action TV show. The film was made during a time period where it was really hard to make good...
With the New 52 far behind, I can look back on it with more nuanced eyes and give my opinion. Here it goes...
While the decision to significantly modify Superman's status quo in the New 52 is not one I agree with, it is one I can understand. Superman had become such an iconic character not only to DC, but to modern culture, that it was a major challenge to write him as an emotionally compelling protagonist in a dramatic story. By taking him out of his comfort zone, Superman could be portrayed as a more fallible and human character and adapt to a world that may no...
Superman is DC's first super hero in addition to being 1 of the best super heroes of all time. Superman doesn't have as many iconic villains as Batman, but he does have some cool enemies. This list is about my 5 favorite enemies of Superman.
5. Mr. Mxyzptlk
Mr. Mxyzptlk is a trouble making antagonist. He is more of a comedic villain than the other Superman villains. He manages to annoy Superman a lot. Mr. Mxyzptlk is 1 of Superman's most entertaining enemies. He truly shines in Superman: The Animated Series where is amusingly voiced by Gilbert Gottfried.

Ever since New 52 Superman died, the Superman fandom has been split between those who are overjoyed the pre-Flashpoint Superman is coming back and those who actually liked N52 Superman’s stories.
I will not speak about the new Superman movies. That’s another matter of debate.
For the most part, I was on the fence about New 52 Supes. There were good stories, like Superman Unchained and Superman: Doomed, but so far there was nothing on the New 52 that could be considered transcendent or groundbreaking for the Man of...
