Original Superman producer pans Man of Steel

July 30th, 2013 by bash Comments


Ilya Salkind, the man who helped bring Superman to the big screen in the 1970s, has panned this summer’s reboot Man of Steel.

The 65-year-old producer told TMZ over the weekend that Zack Snyder’s film was just “ok”.

When pressed further he added: “I think it’s a little Batmanish.”

Salkind produced the 1978 Superman movie that starred Christopher Reeves and two of its sequels.

He bought the film rights to the property in August 1974 with his father Alexander and their business partner Pierre Spengler.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
