Episode 70: Superman III (1983)

Younger listeners may not remember this, but there was a time when if you made a superhero comedy, you were greeted with outrage rather than great reviews and massive box office numbers. But is the problem with Superman III merely that it's a comedy, or more that it's not a very good one? What's more, can Seb find a way to argue that actually it might be the best of the Reeve films? Find out on an episode where we do actually eventually get around to discussing the film, after a news roundup including New Mutants, that Shazam costume, a possible Silver Surfer movie, and Kristen Wiig maybe being a Wonder Woman villain.
