    Description:
    Bullets bounce off him. Criminal masterminds can't outfox him. Even the destructive gizmos dreamed up my mad scientists can't blast him into atoms. Superman has the strength and courage to defeat all foes. And now for the first time in the classic TV series Adventures of Superman, the Man of Steel's exciting flights, fights and super heroics are presented in color.

    George Reeves returns as Superman (AKA Clark Kent) in 26 episodes comprising seasons 3 and 4 of the program that ran six seasons total. This time his exploits take him to a stuffy European monarchy, a remote desert isle and even a cave in the year 50,000 BC.

    Superboy Season 1
    Description:

    He's no longer a child and not yet a man. He's a boy - a college boy, in fact, who earnestly studies journalism at Shuster University. Clark Kent is his name.

The production team whose big-screen spectacular revitalized live-action Superman adventures brings a live-action Boy of Steel to the small screen with 26 year-one episodes of the series that ran four heroic seasons. Bring home all 26 episodes of the first season of "Superboy," plus extras, in this 4-disc collector's set.

    Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman Season 3
    Description:
    Building on the Superman myth, this television series from the 1990s centers on the young adult life of Clark Kent (Dean Cain) in the modern-day city of Metropolis. While struggling to balance his Superman duties with his job working for the Daily Planet, Kent meets and falls in love with Lois Lane, a fellow reporter. When news breaks of Superman's existence, however, Lane becomes smitten with the elusive superhero and, unaware that Kent and Superman are the same person, fends off Kent's romantic advances. Driven by this odd romantic triangle of sorts, the show also focuses on life around the Daily Planet office and Superman's battles with a whole host of villains, making it part-romance, part-action/adventure. Every episode from the third season of the show is included here.


    Features:

    * "Lois & Clark: A History of Romance" featurette
    * "The Man of Steel Trivia Challenge" hosted by Dean Cain

    Superman: The Movie (1978/2001) Four-Disc Special Edition

    Synopsis: A box-office smash, an Academy Award winner and a fan favorite since it first flew into theatres in December 1978, Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. At its heart (just as in three sequels) is Christopher Reeve's intelligent, affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel. Watching Superman again isn't just like being a kid again. It's better. The movie's legacy soared even higher when director Richard Donner revisited this beloved adventure 22 years later and integrated eight minutes into the film. Enjoy more footage of the Krypton Council, a glimpse of stars of prior Superman incarnations, more of Jor-El underscoring his son's purpose on Earth and an extended sequence inside Lex Luthor's gauntlet of doom. Reeve, Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give indelible performances that fuel the film's aura of legend.

    Superman II: Two-Disc Special Edition (1980)

    Synopsis: "I thought the original Superman was terrific entertainment," the Chicago Sun-Times' Roger Ebert wrote, "and so I was a little startled to discover that I liked Superman II even more." Unwittingly released from Phantom Zone imprisonment, three super-powered Kryptonian criminals (Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglas and Jack O'Halloran) plan to enslave Earth - just when Superman (Christopher Reeve) decides to show a more romantic side to Lois Lane (Margot Kidder).

    Superman III: Deluxe Edition (1983)

    Synopsis: After Superman: The Movie's epic storytelling and Superman II's awesome battles, how could the first two hits be topped? In Superman III, meet Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor), a half-witted computer programming natural. For him a keyboard is a weapon - and Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his life. Christopher Reeve reprises his most beloved role, deepening his character's human side as Clark Kent reunites with old flame Lana Lang (Annette O'Toole) at a Smallville High class reunion. And when Superman becomes his own worst enemy after Kryptonite exposure, Reeve pulls off both roles with dazzling skill. Incredible visual effects abound - but above all it has heart, heroism and high-flying humor. All in superabundance.

    # Commentary by executive producer Ilya Salkind and producer Pierre Spengler

    Superman IV: The Quest For Peace - Deluxe Edition (1987)

    Synopsis: # Christopher Reeve not only dons the title hero's cape for the fourth time but also helped develop the movie's provocative theme: nuclear disarmament. "For me, it's the most personal of the entire series," Reeve said. "It directly reflects what Superman should be, and should be doing." Superman does a lot this time around. To make the world safe for nuclear arms merchants, Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) creates a new being to challenge the Man of Steel: the radiation-charged Nuclear Man (Mark Pillow). The two foes clash in an explosive extravaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, plug a volcanic eruption of Mount Etna and rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China.

    Special Features :

    # Commentary by screenwriter Mark Rosenthal
    # Additional scenes
    # Theatrical trailer
    # Languages: English & Français
    # Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only)

    I can't bring myself to buy those two movies after knowing what could have been to what is. I mean if you heard or read the story plots for III and IV those movies could have bested I & II but they just couldn't get the rights to the people they wanted to use which sucks.

    Do you have the script for III & IV ?

    I know for a fact their's no way I'm getting Superman III -[It just really sucked]

    As for Superman IV -[While his plan to end Nuclear War was a nobel plan, The story didn't make sense, nor did Luthor's Nuclear Man. since they used a lock from superman's hair, why didn't they just create Bizzaro, Instead of creating The Nuclear Man crap.I probably won't get this movie afterall].

    No I dont have a script but from reading about what it was suppose to be about for other fan fourms it just seems like the last two movies got the raw end of the deal because of WB buying the rights to all of the DCU.

    I think it's sold sepreatly . here is the Press Release

    On November 28, in celebration of the year of Superman, Warner Home Video will release a host of DVDs, all starring the late Christopher Reeve in his landmark portrayal of the Man of Steel. Leading the way will be the long-awaited Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut ($24.98 SRP), directed by Donner and representing Superman II as it was originally conceived and intended to be filmed. An overwhelmingly requested title, the movie features Donner’s original footage, shot but never used before, including a never-before-seen beginning, a never-before-seen resolution, with 15 minutes of restored footage of Marlon Brando as Jor-El and much more.

    Other titles to be released include Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition ($39.92 SRP) which features both the DVD debut of the 1978 theatrical version as well as the 2001 extended edition with commentary from director Richard Donner and Tom Mankiewicz, archival footage of additional scenes and screen tests. Richard Lester’s ever-popular Superman II will be available in a new Two-Disc Special Edition ($26.99 SRP) including a new featurette, vintage television specials and additional vault elements; and Superman III and IV Deluxe Editions ($19.97 SRP). Finally, The Christopher Reeve Superman Collection ($79.92 SRP) will be offered in an 8-disc boxed set including all the above (except Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut). We've attached detailed listings of every disc below, including the specs on Warner Home Video's release of Supergirl ($14.97 SRP) which, like the Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, will also be available separately.


    Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut (1980/2006)
    Superman II will delight fans who, for years, have been imploring Warner Home Video via voluminous numbers of petitions, letters, phone calls and e-mails to release the Donner cut. In fact, Donner had already shot most of the Superman II footage during Superman: The Movie. But as production on the sequel continued, creative differences between the director and the film’s producers became irreconcilable and Donner left the project. Although Richard Lester was hired to finish production, he chose to make major changes to the film, leaving only vestiges of Donner’s original vision and concepts in the version of Superman II that was ultimately released to theaters. Now, nearly thirty years later, Warner Home Video is honored to grant the wishes of countless Superman fans. With this DVD release, Richard Donner has become the first director in history to be able to complete a film he left during production with nearly all his footage “in the can.” Adding back a substantial amount of that unused footage, the director has seen his original vision restored and brought to fruition. Most notably, the “Donner cut” restores the Marlon Brando role, filmed for, but not included in the final theatrical release version of Superman II. The legendary Brando’s performance as Jor-El has finally been restored in key scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the profound relationship between father and son.With so many other changes, large and small, including a variety of Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman, this Superman II will prove to be an eye-opening experience and an important addition to film history.

    * All new introduction by director Richard Donner
    * Commentary by director Richard Donner and creative consultant Tom Mankiewicz
    * New featurette Superman II: Restoring the Vision
    * Additional scenes
    * Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only)
