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.
