With Superman starring in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, we are witnessing the superhero genre’s resurgence.
But what about other superhero films?
Is there any truth to the myth that the superhero’s origins are shrouded in mystery?
It seems so, according to the creators of Superman, Joe and Anthony Russo.
In the movie Superhero, Joe Russo stars as Superman and Anthony Perkins plays Black Adam.
They were born and raised in New York City, and they have had the chance to see the genre grow over the years.
They spoke to us about the genesis of their superhero movies, what it was like making a film in the 80s, and what their current plans are for the superhero film genre.
Joe and Anthony: What did you guys initially envision when making Superman?
Anthony: We’ve always wanted to make a movie that is a little bit of a departure from the Marvel movies.
We’ve never really been in the Marvel universe before, so we thought that it would be interesting to do something a little different.
We thought that the first question people would ask is what the hell are you doing?
That is really the question that we are trying to answer in this movie, and it’s really fun.
Joe: That’s a good question.
You could just answer it and not answer it, but we had this idea of trying to do a superhero film that was sort of a cross between Batman Begins and the original Superman, with a little twist or twist of the origin story.
Anthony: It’s an origin story, it’s not an origin, it doesn’t start with Superman, it ends with Superman.
The first line in the first movie is, “I am not a hero.”
It’s a joke.
Joe: Yeah, but it’s still an origin.
Anthony says that’s the fun part.
Joe and I are both very fond of the Batman films, and we just think the first thing that jumps out at you as you watch the movie is the comic book look.
I’m just really excited about the way that they did it.
Anthony and I have worked on a lot of comics, and he always likes to look at them in the same way.
Joe’s been doing this for a long time.
I always wanted him to have his own Superman costume.
He always has his own thing.
That was one of the cool things about the character was that he was very different from what we had seen before.
It was so cool to see him have a different take on it, and that was one that I really liked.
Joe is really into comic books, and so was I. We wanted to do it in the right way, and the way we did it was really fun, and also we wanted to give it a sense of scale.
Anthony: When we were looking at the comics, we were like, “We want this to be a movie where they have to be fighting over a comic book.”
We wanted them to have to fight over the comics.
We just wanted to have a sense that the world of superheroes was really huge.
We want to give that sense.
Joe loves to draw and paint and shoot things and shoot everything.
So we just said, “Let’s just try and do it.”
And then we started talking about it, it was something that was fun.
We were going, “Oh, we have a ton of cool stuff.”
And we were just talking about the comics and it was this amazing, massive universe.
Anthony was like, I love that stuff, we’re gonna have a lot to work with.
And Joe was like this is like a tonne of fun, so let’s just make it happen.
Joe & Anthony: Do you have a favorite comic book villain?
Anthony, Joe & Anthony talk to comics critic, editor, writer, and actor Kevin Smith about his upcoming film, Kevin Smith: The Dark Knight Returns, at the D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, California, USA on November 17, 2017.

It’s just like he’s in his head and he’s not in the real world.
We loved that idea, and Kevin Smith was very excited to have that kind of character and make him into this character.
Joe, Anthony & Anthony discuss their upcoming comic book film, The Dark Star: Resurrection, at a panel at the Comic-Con International: San Diego convention in San Diego, California on September 20, 2018.
