December 1, 2014: "Superman: The Movie" Flying Sketch Found in AtticPrint

Flying Sketch A 1977 pencil drawing by Andrew Ainsworth, owner of Shepperton Design Studios in the UK, the same company responsible for making us believe a man could fly in "Superman: The Movie", is now on display to the public after being hidden away in a suitcase for nearly 40 years.

    It shows Christopher Reeve suspended from a rail pulling him along, with a small fan mounted in front of him to make his cape billow, and create an illustion of movement in his hair.

    It was a breakthrough from Ainsworth, who had been struggling to bring the Man of Steel to the sky.

    Failed attempts included firing dummies from cannons, while another idea used a remote control cast of Superman flying around the studios.

    Ainsworth found the picture in a suitcase of paperwork in his attic where it had been forgotten since the seventies.

    Ainsworth said: "Back then I only had pencil and paper to work out how the vision in my head could be made a reality on the screen. Today, filmmakers have the wonders of technology to be able to play with and see whole scenes come to life before a frame has been shot.

    "We came up with the idea of creating a huge front projection screen and designed lightweight composite wind machines, which together made it possible for Christopher Reeve to fly as Superman.

    "I put this picture away in a drawer at the time and then it must have been filed away with some papers and lain unseen for years."

The pencil sketch is currently on public display in O2's Eureka! Gallery at Proud Archivist in London until December 5.

    Quite a lot of the story was a recap and that made for an extremely dull read. It was a necessary evil - pardon the pun - due to the Superman: Future's End #1 interruption but it just left the story lagging in direction.

    There were the odd lines here and there significantly from Lois that were shining high points but overall, nothing really happened aside from the scenes that seemed to be 'stock footage' from movies in recent years like Independence Day, War of the Worlds, 2012 and Day After Tomorrow... the revelations of Ulysses and the ark was all but 2 pages of progressive story.

    Doctor Gray, Niti and the others created a team for Superboy to flourish under Aaron Kuder and then we revert to a new lab, new scientist who has, it seems, lost all the research on Kon from N.O.W.H.E.R.E (which S.T.A.R retrieved!) and the research the Dr. Gray conducted on Kon and Jon...

    This buffoon of a scientist has no clue to literally ANYTHING about Kon, and the teen reveals information - including Superman's son's human NAME to this guy - I thought it might be inner monologue but they talk about some things during the blood tests that contradict that...
