Behind the Scenes of: Superman (1978)

Behind the scenes of: Superman (1978).

I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but Christopher Reeve wasn’t actually flying in those Superman movies...😳

Yep, it was all fake. Soz! 🤷‍♂️

The visual effect was achieved using several techniques including filming the actor on wires and on a mechanical arm (as pictured here with Margot Kidder) along with bluescreen compositing.

It worked a treat because as the tagline rightly states:

“You’ll believe a man can fly” 🦸🏻
