music, I also enjoy superhero related comics and
films. This is definitely a good time to be a fan, especially having
of the Marvel and DC film
adaptions that have taken place. While Marvel has a
lot of popular heroes and has done incredible in film, I still
some of the DC characters. Superman
for example was really the first well known
superhero to be created back in June of 1938 by Siegel and Shuster with
Comics #1. Before the popular success of the Avengers
films, and even before the successful Sam Raimi
films there was an earlier significant comicbook film
adaption that was very influential.
The first major
superhero film that could hit mainstream
audience was made before many of us were born back in 1978. This was “Superman:
and was a critical success, that allowed many of today’s successful
directors to explore their imaginations and bring popular superheroes
to film. As fans enjoy the current crop of yearly superhero film
specatacles, it is great to recognize the foundation that was created
from this earlier effort.
Regardless of who a fan’s favorite brand is, there is no denying the
of that film as well as the multitude of new comic book characters that
expanded over the last 75 years.
