DC Legacy Filmcast is put together by two comic book fans, Chris Ayers and Dennis Cooper, in which they chronicle the history of DC Comics characters on the big screen in a monthly podcast. Including interviews with experts, people who were associated with the films, and comic book creators.
Episode 4: Superman: The Movie (1978) – Possibly the most important and influential superhero film of all time, Superman: The Movie (1978) defined what a comic book movie was. Christopher Reeve became Superman for a whole generation and made us believe a man could fly. Our very special guest for this episode is Dan Jurgens, one of the definitive Superman writer/artists of the 90’s. Dan is the man who killed Superman in 1992 and who is still shepherding the character through a rebirth of sorts in the pages of Action Comics. Dan Jurgens was a college student when he saw Superman on the big screen for the first time and he talks about how the film influenced not only his career but many writers and artists at DC.
