IMDb profile

Superman, also known as Superman: The Movie (as it was called in pre-release advertising), is a superhero film, released by Warner Bros. in 1978, and based on the popular DC Comics character of the same name. It was directed by Richard Donner and executive produced by Ilya Salkind, with music by John Williams.

The movie led to three theatrical sequels: Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983) and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987), as well as several canceled sequel attempts after 1987. Superman and Superman II are treated as a 'vague history' to the 2006 film Superman Returns.
