"We realized, going back to the roots, that what's interesting about Superman is that he has been adjusted for every generation. In the Forties he fought the Nazis. Then he was sort of a G-man for the Fifties, the George Reeves Superman doing Clark Kent with the coat and the hat, very matter-of-fact and practical. Richard Donner did the films in the 1970s and made it all epic. Then in the Nineties, with 'Lois and Clark,' he was kind of a yuppie. So it always fit the times.
