Re: Superman III - The Official Thread
I read that the video game sequence which Ross plays was from an aborted attempt by Atari to license a SIII video game which is funny to include it in the movie since it makes it seem that Ross is losing his rockets because and the points are going to Superman.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
