The real Superman

Super/Man: The Christopher Reeve Story is more than just a biography. It takes a closer look at the life of this actor, who is widely known for his role as Superman. Ian Bonhote and Peter Ettedgui produced the film, which examines Reeve’s Hollywood journey as well as his personal life. His remarkable voyage and determination after suffering paralysis are touched upon here.

Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt exclaimed, “Everyone knows Superman is a superhero, but I want people to find out who the REAL hero behind Superman is. This movie tells an amazing tale that digs deep into what kind of person Christopher Reeve was along with how brave he really was.”

Making superheroes come alive on large screens

DC Studios acquired the film alongside HBO Documentary Films and CNN Films at the Sundance Film Festival. Warner Bros president of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein said they had played a crucial role in Reeve’s career: “He made us believe that man can fly from right here, in this very studio, and this documentary shows why he was a true off-and on-screen hero.”


In addition to Reeve's acting career, the documentary revolves around his advocacies for disability awareness. Many people have been motivated by what he did after he got into trouble; therefore, this movie will tell his inspirational story far beyond its targeted audience.

Special-event programming

Fathom Events is widely acknowledged for creating demand for special-event programming, while DC Studios creates content through a Warner Bros subsidiary company. 

Therefore, it means that there will be a considerable turnout expected for this particular event. Once premiering in the USA, the movie will then be released to other parts of the world so that fans can get an opportunity to understand more about this incredible story of Christopher Reeve.
