Geoff Johns and Kevin Feige Pay Tribute to Richard Donner’s “Superman”

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences paid tribute to the creative genious of Richard Donner on Wednesday at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, recognizing the director’s contribution to the film industry over many years.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns spoke together about the influence Donner’s “Superman: The Movie” has had, and continues to have, on the current crop of superhero films.

Superman: The Movie is still, to this day, the archetype of the perfect superhero film origin story,” Feige said, “and we watch it before me make almost any one of our films and that’s been the case for the past 17 years since I left the fold to go work for Marvel.”
