Superman The Movie (1978): a retrospective of the film that kicked off the cinematic superhero revolution (video).

The superhero film genre has grown to the point that it completely dominates the current cinematic scene. The Marvel Cinematic Universe now holds the record for most worldwide box office receipts, while DC’s more solo endeavours continue to fascinate and confound audiences.

Superman: The Movie was released in 1978 and is widely regarded as the best superhero movie that has ever been created.

With a $55 million budget, Superman was the most costly movie ever filmed at that point. It was released in December 1978 to positive reviews and a healthy profit of $300 million, making it the second-highest-grossing movie of the year.

We even had Marlon Brando as Jor-El and Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor. Ah, the good old days.
