Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Lois Lane and an explorer set out on an expedition through an underground cavern and discover a race of hawk-men. When these creatures prepare a ritual sacrifice for the adventurous pair, Superman comes to the rescue.
"Friend turned foe" reads the newspaper headline. But Lois Lane suspects there's more to the story of Superman turning into a jewel thief and bank robber. And, of course, Clark Kent, knows it can't be true. But someone is out there committing crimes--and he's doing it dressed like Superman. Clark Kent finally meets the impostor at the opera. And that's where the impostor meets the real Superman. Catching the low-class crook is easy. But behind the cheap gangster is a powerful crime boss. And he proves more resourceful than his stooge.

Marks the first time on screen when a villain shoots at Superman, realizes his bullets are ineffective, and decides to throw his gun at Superman as an alternate form of attack. In the decades to follow, this would become a true Superman cliché. See more »

Someone disguised as Superman is committing robberies all over Metropolis. He's doing it under orders from The Boss (that's all he's ever called--and he sounds like Orson Welles!). Immediately the police start searching for Superman. One night Lois Lane and Clark Kent are covering the opera. The fake Superman decides to rob the patrons there that night. Lois scares him off---but Clark decides to meet him face to face and get to the bottom of this.
This has to be one of the quickest-moving Superman cartoons I've ever seen. It moves like lightning and (for once) Lois is NOT captured or put in danger. I do love how she casually jumps into the police car (in her beautiful new dress) to join them as they go after the villain. It's never explained how they KNOW where The Boss is though. Who cares? This is fun, fast and beautifully animated. A definite 9.
