Cinematic Universe Episode 7: Superman (1978)
Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's the latest episode of Cinematic Universe, the comic book movie podcast from FilmDivider.com, featuring Seb and James from PanelBeats alongside host Joe Cunningham.

As you'll no doubt have figured out if you've got this far, in this week's episode we have our first encounter with Christopher Reeve's portrayal of Superman, in the 1978 Richard Donner-directed film. In the news, meanwhile, we give our takes on the launch of Daredevil, a possible Agents of SHIELD spinoff, and the rumours around Lord and Miller taking on The Flash:


For each alternating week, Joe records a "minisode" in which he reacts to the two comics that we recommended he read in the previous week's main episode - so he'll be talking about the following two books next week if you want to check them out yourself:

• Seb's Pick: The Man of Steel by John Byrne and Dick Giordano
Comixology (Digital) / Amazon (Print)

• James' Pick: All Star Superman by Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely and Jamie Grant
Comixology (Digital) / Amazon (Print)
