One of many videos that will be uploaded very shortly to A Tribute to Christopher Reeve. Here we have a behind the scenes video of the Scene entitled Superman’s pledge. Starring no other than original Superman IV cast member David Waterman recreating his role as the Hot Dog man, this time however selling Pizza! (you got to keep up with the times). As per the original movie David steals the Scene!
We recently caught up with David Waterman whilst he reprised his role as the Hot Dog Seller in Superman IV Redux. As part of the Milton Keynes Film Festival, parts of Superman IV were re-shot to be added to a special re-release of Superman IV in the Local Cinema (Screening Saturday 23rd July 2016). Footage of David’s reprisal will be uploaded to A Tribute Shortly…
The amazing Battle scene between Nuclear Man (II) and Superman on the streets of Metropolis. These never seen before behind the scene photos of the city of Metropolis recreated on a backlot at Elstree Studio, Borehamwood. With a limited budget (thanks to Cannon slashing the budget) the Set was actually not too bad a representation of the Streets of Metropolis. Using the back of the studio as a support, the streets and buildings were assembled crating the illusion of a bustling city. If you look closely in the background the shops even have a satirical element named Arracombie & Fitze and not forgetting Braceys.
A prisoners costume worn in the 1987 action film Super IV: The Quest for Peace starring Christopher Reeve as Superman. This costume was worn by one of the prisoner’s in the chain gang at the beginning of the film and again at the end when Lex Luther (Gene Hackman) is returned to prison. The costume consists of a striped shirt and trousers with the numbers ‘8615’ stitched on the chest. The costume still has the costumiers, ‘Bermans and Nathans’ (now known as ‘Angels’) labels stitched inside. Now part of the A Tribute to Christopher Reeve collection.
