Christopher Reeves stars as The Man of Steel, in this classic depiction of Superman's origin, including his infancy as Kal-El of Krypton, his father Jor-El, played by Marlon Brando, and his youthful years in the rural town of Smallville. Disguised as reporter Clark Kent, he adopts a mild-mannered disposition in Metropolis and develops a romance with Lois Lane, played by Margot Kidder, while battling Gene Hackman’s villainous Lex Luthor. Groundbreaking in its use of special effects and science fiction/fantasy storytelling, the film's legacy presaged the mainstream popularity of today’s superhero franchises.
