The Winter 2018 edition of TwoMorrows’ publication “RetroFan #3” celebrates the 40th anniversary of “Superman: The Movie” with an exclusive interview with director Richard Donner.
In discussing his love of comic books, Donner remembers, “It was just escapism. I mean, we were kids, we’d come home from school after playing in the yard or somewhere on the school grounds, and our reading material would be whatever the newest comic book was that came out. I don’t know if it’s going on today – today it’s TV instead. But it was a comic book and every page was a phenomenal one to turn, and you lived the fantasies, between Superman and – now you’re gonna make me think of the others and I can’t – I mean, hundreds of them. Dick Tracy, Shazam! – what was that, Captain Marvel?”
