17 Movies Like Superman (1978)

The 1978 film adaptation of Superman, which was released in theatres under the title Superman: The Movie and was directed by Richard Donner and starred Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder, Marlon Brando, and Gene Hackman, was titled simply Superman.

The filming and production of the movie took place at the same time as the creation of its sequel, Superman II. Despite the fact that this arrangement was afflicted by production difficulties, the sequel was not released until the year 1980.

There were two further films in the Superman series following 1987’s Superman IV: The Quest for Peace: Superman III (1983) and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987), in addition to various efforts at a sequel that were scrapped after 1987.

The films Superman and Superman II serve as a sort of informal backdrop for the film Superman Returns, which was released in 2006.
