Superman: The Movie | Everything is Super
The world outside your window? Not great. But here on Post Show Recaps, Everything is Superman!
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@kevmahadeo) take a break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to fly up, up, and away with the Christopher Reeve era of Superman. The podcast schedule is as follows:
May 10 – Superman: The Movie
May 17 – Superman II
May 24 – Superman III
May 31 – Superman IV: The Quest For Peace
Josh and Kevin will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on June 4 with their preview of the Disney+ series Loki.
This week: Josh and Kevin fly into “Superman: The Movie,” the first of the Christopher Reeve Superman films. They discuss what makes Reeve’s work so iconic, why the folks who think Superman is boring need to revisit this movie, and the fact that despite all it has going for it, it still has such an incredibly weak ending.
Next week: “Superman II.” Josh will watch the regular cut and Kevin will watch the Donner cut. Send your feedback to [email protected].
As a bonus: “Invincible.” In the Post Show Recaps Patreon feed, Josh and Kevin joined forces to talk about the Amazon superhero series, just for the patrons of PSR. Sign up today at the $5 level to get that podcast at patreon.com/postshowrecaps.
