On the second episode of DC TV Classics, your hosts Keith Chow and Britney Monae are joined by pop culture historian Alan Kistler to reflect on the television program that started it all: The Adventures of Superman starring George Reeves! Since its launch in 1952, The Adventures of Superman proves that DC Comics superheroes have been an indelible part of television since the inception of the medium. In addition to reminiscing about George Reeves’ Superman, this episode also touches on the mysterious details surrounding Reeves’ death – which were dramatized in the 2006 film Hollywoodland starring Ben Affleck – and debate whether the “curse of Superman” actually exists. Also: news from New York Comic-Con, including the sequel to Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders starring William Shatner as Two-Face and the debut of Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 by Jeff Parker and Mark Andreyko!
