Ilya got the idea for a Superman movie in 1973, and after a complicated process with DC Comics, Salkind and Spengler bought the rights to the character the following year. Several directors, most notably Guy Hamilton, and screenwriters (Mario Puzo, David and Leslie Newman, and Robert Benton) were involved with the project before Richard Donner was hired to direct. Tom Mankiewicz was called in to rewrite the script and received the credit “creative consultant”. It was decided to shoot the film “Superman” and its sequel “Superman II” (1980) simultaneously, with the main photo, starting in March 1977 and ending in October 1978.

The most expensive film made up to that point, with a budget of $55 million, Superman was released in December 1978 to critical and financial success; its worldwide box office grossed $300 million, making it the second highest-grossing film of the year.
