Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of the vintage original Superman posters, where we provide a substantial choice of artwork for the cinema's ultimate film series.

Superman (also known as Superman: The Movie) is a superhero film, released in 1978. It was directed by Richard Donner and written by Mario Puzo, Leslie Newman, David Newman, and Robert Benton. The script was mainly from a story by Puzo and based on the DC Comics character, Superman. The movie is also the first of the blockbuster franchise and stars an ensemble cast featuring Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve, Jeff East, Margot Kidder, Glenn Ford, and more. Superman depicts the origin of the superhero (Reeve), depicting his infancy as Kal-El of Krypton, son of Jor-El, and his youthful years in the rural town of Smallville. Superman disguised himself as reporter Clark Kent and adopts a mild-mannered disposition in the Metropolis area. He also develops a romance with Lois Lane while battling with the villainous Lex Luthor.

The theatrical release vintage Superman movie poster was designed by Bob Peak.

Several directors, most notably Guy Hamilton, and screenwriters were associated with the project before Richard Donner was hired to direct. Tom Mankiewicz was in charge of rewriting the script and was given a "creative consultant" credit. They started filming both Superman and its sequel Superman II (1980) simultaneously. The primary shooting of the film began in March 1977 and ended in October 1978. Tensions arose between Donner and the producers, and a decision was made to stop filming the sequel, of which 75 percent had already been completed, and finish the first film.

Superman was the most expensive film made up to that point because of the budget of $55 million. The DC Comics hero film was released in December 1978 to critical and financial success. It gained worldwide box office earnings of $300 million, which made it the second-highest-grossing release of the year. The movie also received praise for Reeve's performance and John Williams' musical score and was nominated for three Academy Awards. Superman was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress's National Film Registry in 201
