Coffee With Jeff #181: Superman: The Movie – Part 2

28 mins - Published Sun, Jun 30, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

In the late 1970s, the team of Ilya and Alexander Salkind did an amazing thing, created the first Superhero film, Superman: The Movie. The film was a huge success. The franchise continued for another four films, each film being of worse quality than the last. It was a steady decline until the character was given up on in Hollywood for 17 years.

Today I tell the story of the fall of the Superman Franchise in the 181 episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
