For the 75th anniversary of Superman, "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder put together a 2-minute animated video looking back at the history of the superhero. Check it out below.
Almost everything is in this video, including Superman's first appearance in Action Comics #1, to the "Death of Superman" in the comics and the character's portrayal on the big screen by Christopher Reeve and Henry Cavill.
We see Superman without his ability to fly and many of his enemies like Brainiac and Doomsday. There are plenty of iconic shots, but also plenty of moments that were left out. It seems that the video completely ignores Brandon Routh from "Superman Returns" and Dean Cain from the "Lois and Clark" TV series. Instead we get a look at the Super Family and the 1978 Atari video game.

Probably the only thing he did right in regards to Superman although I obviously would have wanted John Williams theme through it all. I really don't understand why they didn't play it when they were doing the part with Christopher Reeve. That being said, I've warmed up to the Hans Zimmer score...but it's still not Williams. Sorry but it's like when, again Zimmer, took over for Spider-Man from Danny Elfman. Elfman had this very unique score, perfectly suited to the character and Zimmer's was just so damn generic. Otherwise, it was fine I guess. It's kind of ruined because the modern incarnations are so anti-Superman though. I guess the new comic book version is brutal as is the movie version.
