Episode 53 - Superman

June 1, 2021

On this week’s listener request episode, we’re looking at everyone up for 1978’s Superman! Which Oscar-winner had his pick of playing Clark Kent, Jor-el, OR Lex Luthor? Which Grammy-winning singer was considered for Lois Lane? And did Frozen rip off that Fortress of Solitude scene? Also – Brando starts a feud with Stallone, Gene Hackman and Richard Donner get into a mustachioed standoff, and we try to make sense of a bananas-sounding thriller featuring telepathic plants!


Superman stars Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder, Gene Hackman, Marlon Brando, Valerie Perrine, Ned Beatty, Jackie Cooper, Glenn Ford, Phyllis Thaxter, Jeff East, and Terrence Stamp; directed by Richard Donner
