On the 6th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, our resident DC and Superman expert Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to discuss Superman: The Movie. Long before Chad became obsessed with Batman V Superman, the original Superman movie was part of a wave of films that basically invented what modern blockbusters would become. Puzzle pieces include Captain Marvel, Prometheus, Ghostbusters and Disaster Movies.
And for those keeping track of the Piecing It Together Podcast, just know that special series and episodes like this will continue to be a part of the future of the show, and we’ll continue figuring out the best way to brand them and tie them in to the overall puzzle theme as we continue doing them. While some special episodes will be a once in a while thing, Breaking It Apart will be a regular occurrence with its own numbering.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Superman: The Movie (and any other movies we discussed)!
Chad Clinton Freeman is the founder of the Pollygrind Film Festival and recently helped plan the Ironton Wizardfest. He’s also the only person I know who sees more movies than me.
