Entertainment Weekly Celebrates 75 Years Of SUPERMAN
This week's Entertainment Weekly cover highlights the changing faces of Superman from his debut in Action Comics, to his first tv incarnation in George Reeves, right up to Henry Cavill's Man Of Steel..though Brandon Routh gets the shaft! Check it out after the jump.
This looks like something Supes fans won't want to miss. Here's just a few of the highlights of the issue:
• Origin Story: We dive into the long, hard making of a hero with a look back at how Superman’s mythology evolved over the years. Find out how animation gave him the ability to fly, where his chrome-domed nemesis Lex Luthor first appeared, and how radio made Kryptonite his one and only weakness.
• Superman Returns director Bryan Singer on the “whimsical” tone of his attempted reboot of the hero — why “not everyone responded.”
• Man of Steel producer Christopher Nolan on the “science fiction-based” approach to retelling Superman’s origin as an alien invader saga.
• Cavill on how a lonely life as a boarding school student fueled his performance as Superman, the ultimate outsider.
Man Of Steel is out on Friday, and you can read my thoughts on it HERE.
