Richard Donner shows Clark Kent’s rise from a child in Kansas to a Superhero for the first time as a big-budget production in SUPERMAN. When Lex Luther comes to Metropolis, Superman has to thwart his archenemy’s plan to sink half of the USA. With Marlon Brando as Superman’s father, Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor and Christopher Reeve as Superman, Donner’s SUPERMAN paved the way for today’s genre of comic book adaptations and helped establish modern special effects as an important element in storytelling.
