    The MUST have a crystal toy set with footage of Brando. Some kind of projection or perhaps an Ecto Goggles like trick.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    The 1978 Superman was the worst superhero movie ever made, bar none.
    Tell me I'm wrong:
    » YouTube video

    Probably the best, actually. Inspired many young directors who made superhero movies later in life, like Raimi.

    Quoted from o-din:

    I was 16 when this came out and none of my friends or myself cared or wanted to see it.
    However bringing in a big star like Marlon Brando probably saved it from becoming the box office flop it probably should have been.

    Well....weren't you guys just too cool for school?

    Quoted from vid1900:

    It inspired other directors because they figured, hey if that piece of crap can get made, there is no way I could do worse.
    I will give the movie credit for having the first transgendered woman in a major Hollywood movie, Margot Kidder.

    It's OK, Vid. You can't be right 100% of the time.

    You'll just have to settle for 97%.

    The turning back time trick worked in the context of the movie. He wasn't allowed by his Kryptonian father to interfere in human history, but he choose to anyway to save Lois. That's the setup between the two fathers that he hears as he flies up into the clouds.

    He rejects his more divine nature (represented by Jor-El) to follow his humanity (represented by Pa Kent).

    Essentially, Superman allows himself to be selfish in this one moment. And that is the heart of the movie.

    Quoted from Russell:

    I thought that show was actually called Batman ‘66...did Stern just add that on? If so, I don’t like that either. Wonder why they didn’t do Star Wars ‘77?

    Batman '66 is used as a marketing tool these days to represent new items based on the original TV show. There are comic books, animated movies, games (like the pinball) that use this term, to differentiate from other incarnations of Batman.

    Quoted from Astropin:

    Haha...that struck me funny even as an 11 year old. Reversing the rotation of the Earth does not reverse time...what a bizzare concept.

    He's not rotating the earth backward, he's traveling backward through time, and from his (and the audience's) perspective, the Earth is rotating backward.

    Quoted from Astropin:

    So if we go with the time reversal thing (lol) since he has now broken his "prime directive" to save Lois...he's sort of trapped himself going forward.
    25 years into the future: DOCTOR - "Sorry Lois you have terminal skin cancer and we give you about 3 months to live. Had we caught this a couple years ago we could have cured you". SUPERMAN - "couple years you said?" (In a thought bubble..."Well shit...couple years...I'm really going to have to go fast for this one").

    Seriously dude, you're overthinking it.

    #144 1 year ago
    Quoted from Astropin:

    What? That's the first time I EVER heard that concept. Still doesn't work. How does one travel backwards in time by going fast? You can get "time dilation" by going faster and faster...really kicks in as you approach light speed. But...still doesn't reverse time.

    Obviously you haven't heard it before, otherwise you wouldn't be regurgitating the old "rotating the Earth backwards" thing.

    Superman can break the time barrier by flying super fast. This was well established in the Silver Age comics, on which this movie was based.

    Obviously we're talking about fantasy, but it was well established.

    Quoted from Rascal_H:

    What’s with all the Smallville gals being in a sex slave ring lol

    That was some crazy shit, huh?

    Quoted from benheck:

    Yeah kind of the same problem the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies had. Peter Parker should not be "cool".

    Agreed. The new guy has nailed Peter Parker.

    #233 1 year ago
    Quoted from HHaase:

    Of all the formats of Superman I've seen, the 1970's/80's film versions would be pretty much near the bottom. Only 'Superfriends' and Smallville would be lower on the list. And it only got worse as the sequels progressed. I hated Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, and Otis make me cringe every time I hear "Oh Kay Mister Lootor". Christopher Reeve did a great job in his acting, but I never did like the nerdy/goofy Clark Kent.
    I'd prefer something with Alex Ross artwork, maybe with voice work by Tim Daly or George Newbern. And dear god, please don't make me repeatedly re-watch movie scenes constantly, like they did with Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Just clueless......

    Checking back!


    Trying to figure out where this would be in Stern's release schedule. Strong rumors of Munsters and Beatles up next. We know there is an Elvira 3 is coming, as well as Steve Ritchie's unlicensed game. This is most likely a 2020 title.

    I wonder if Ritchie wants it, since he did the Atari one. If so, then it might be further out than 2020 if his next game is the unlicensed one.

    This also might be a great Borg title.

    I hope to God they get everything in license, including Brando.

    Pull Hackman out of retirement for the custom speech.

    #240 1 year ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    They cannot possibly be able to afford Brando, living or dead, can they?
    Hackman might be into it I'm sure he's bored. Get a soundalike for Clark and Margot Kidder.

    Depends on his original contract and what his estate thinks.

    His estate did allow WB to put his footage back into into Superman II: The Richard Donner cut.

    #243 1 year ago
    Quoted from Grizlyrig:

    Could they just use voices straight from the movie?

    Yes, but I think he meant custom speech.

    Hackman would be great. His voice is gravelly anyway....so it shouldn't sound so different even though he's old now.

    #244 1 year ago

    I think they only need one actor for custom speech.

    The rest could be actual lines from the movie.

    Hackman and Marc McClure are they only ones left alive.

    #247 1 year ago
    Quoted from DeeGor:

    Custom speech from Terence Stamp (AKA General Zod) would be pretty cool. He could taunt you the entire time.

    I forgot he's still alive!

    "Is there no one in this arcade to even challenge me?"

    "Drain before Zod!"
