Film Score Friday: Superman

We’ve got a few more weeks of Film Score Friday before I take my summer break, so I’m finishing up this month with Superman. Reeve, Routh, and Cavill!

First and foremost, we start with the O.G.

No version of Superman will ever top Christopher Reeve’s performance. He had the right amount of charm mixed with the right amount of heroism. This perfect combination goes on to influence my baseline of future superhero films and casting. Marvel Cinematic Universe, I’m nodding in your direction.

In just over a year, John Williams scored for Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Superman.
