Superman III (1983)

Superman III gives Christopher Reeve‘s Man of Steel a delightful foil in Richard Pryor, whose energetic performance adds considerable oomph to this 1983 entry in the series. Pryor plays a skittish, wisecracking computer operator who inadvertently contributes to Superman’s near defeat at the hands of archvillain Robert Vaughn. Annette O’Toole contributes additional spice as Clark Kent’s old flame, Lana Lang, who sparks the mild-mannered reporter’s fires while Margot Kidder‘s Lois Lane has a diminished role. Director Richard Lester sacrifices some of the series’ mythic qualities in his single-minded pursuit of laughs, as evidenced by an opening-reel slapstick smorgasbord, in addition to Pryor’s typical manic antics. Less dramatically intense than the first two installments, Superman III still offers plenty of superpowered action for fans and is clearly the fastest, funniest, and most family friendly film in the series.


Synthetic kryptonite laced with tobacco tar splits Superman in two: good Clark Kent and bad Man of Steel.
