The new Superman movie is finally here! Brandon Routh steps into the movie role made most famous by Christopher Reeve. If you were there to see Superman the Movie or Superman II in the movie theaters, you're aware of the excitement the new movie is generating and probably can't wait to see him again on the silver screen.

It's a Movie! It's a TV Show!
It's Superman!

It's taken many years to get the new movie made, but luckily we've had plenty of Superman on TV to keep us happy. Whether it's been the immensely popular Smallville, the pre-Desperate Housewives Lois & Clark, or the thoroughly modern Justice League Unlimited, the adventures of Superman have been unfolding on television and have shown sides to the character that only TV could.

We've divided our feature into four sections: actors and actresses in the movie Superman Returns, with links to their TV credits; live-action Superman programs; the animated Superman programs; and clips from the newly released Superman DVDs.

MOVIE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES

Brandon Routh

Smallville stuntman hospitalized

Chris Sayour, stunt coordinator for Smallville and primary stunt double for the series' star Tom Welling, was airlifted to a New Westminster, British Columbia, hospital after suffering serious injuries on the set of the WB drama.

Production of Smallville was temporarily halted after Sayour fell 37 feet from a tower on which he was performing a stunt early Tuesday morning. Sources call Sayour's fall a "freak accident," and no foul play is suspected. Sayour's family stated that he had suffered "multiple fractures and internal injuries" and asked that the media respect their privacy while he undergoes treatment.

Police turned over the case to British Columbia's Workmen's Compensation Board, which investigates workplace accidents in Canada. The organization has not yet released comments regarding the incident.

Sayour has been the stunt coordinator for Smallville since its 2001 debut ...

"Superman" was an animated series that premiered on September 6, 1996. Created to follow the success of "Batman: The Animated Series," and based on the popular Superman comics created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the cartoon series focused on the adventures of Superman, an incredibly powerful crime fighter from the planet Krypton, who defends Metropolis from a variety of supercriminals that include Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Metallo, The Parasite, Livewire, The Toyman, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Bizarro, Darkseid, Lobo, Jax-Ur, and Mala. Superman's secret identity is that of Clark Kent, a mild-mannered reporter for the newspaper "The Daily Planet". There he worked with fellow reporter Lois Lane and photographer Jimmy Olsen.

The series opened with an hour and a half long special that featured the exploits of Superman's Kryptonian father, Jor-El, who was attempting to save their planet from a world-wide catastrophe which the planet's artificial intelligence system, Brainiac, was trying to cover up, and continued through Superman's first public appearance in Metropolis. In later seasons, the show featured guest appearances by a variety of other famous comic book heroes including Supergirl, Batman, Robin, The Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Dr. Fate, Steel, and The New Gods. In 1997, episodes of "Superman" were broadcast alongside episodes of "The New Batman Adventures" and reruns of "Batman: the Animated Series" under the title "The New Batman/Superman Adventures".moreless
