Enjoy Stuff: And Superman Too!
In 1981 we knew a man could fly, but we were still excited to get another dose of the Man of Steel. And this time he’s battling three nasty Kryptonians. Superman 2 turns 40 this week, so we take a look back as the adventure continues.
Superman 2 was highly anticipated by audiences, but had a lot of drama behind the scenes. Either way, it’s a movie we still enjoy. Jay and Josh look back to the Super Sequel.

What we’re Enjoying
Jay enjoyed Netflix’s new zombie movie from Zack Snyder, “Army of the Dead”. But it may make you think twice next time you’re in Las Vegas. Shua has been listening to Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Starlord podcast. A new way to experience the Marvel characters.
In 1981 Americans finally got to experience the sequel to the smash hit Superman-The Movie with Christopher Reeve. Fans had been anticipating the release since the hint of General Zod and his cronies at the beginning of the first movie. The three villains were cast out of Kryptonian society with no dignity or remorse. But it was nothing compared to how the Salkinds were about to treat their director Richard Donner. He was quickly replaced with Hard Day’s Night director Richard Lester.
Hollywood drama aside, there was a whole generation of kids that thought Superman 2 hit all the marks. The action, humor, and comic bookiness of the film felt like a perfect balance even if it didn’t entirely stand the test of time.
