    Default Is there enough material for a Superverse TV channel?

    I was flipping through my AT&T cable guide today and I noticed one channel was running a marathon of National Lampoons movies. It weirdly got me wondering ...

    After about 80 years of multi-media venues of storytelling for the Last Son, does Clark have enough material for his own tv channel?

    From his movies, his tv shows, his cartoon shows, his tv and animated movies, his cousin and his dog and his grandpa 's respective shows, his radio show (maybe set to pictures), his Broadway show, etc.

    Could a Superverse Channel work? I haven't done the math yet, but I gotta think he can fill the 168 hours in a week for non - stop content.

    Or am I wrong and he isn't quite there yet to anchor an entire channel?

    He could, theoretically, but it would all be reruns. I mean, are we talking basic cable? Is it part of a package deal? Smallville has the longest run of all the shows so it might be kind of awkward with the Allison Mack stuff going on. How big of a Superman fan would you have to be to want an entire channel that's just about him 24 hours a day?

    OK, so let's do the math.

    This theoretical Superverse channel would encompass the following Superman projects:

    A. Solo Live-Action Television Shows
    B. Solo Live-Action Feature Films
    C. Solo Animated Television Shows
    D. Solo Animated Feature Films
    E. Solo Misc.
    F. Non-solo Live-Action Feature Films
    G. Non-solo Animated Television Shows
    H. Non-solo Animated Feature Films
    I. Related Live-Action Television Shows
    J. Related Live-Action Feature Films
    K. Related Animated Television Shows

    So that's 11 different types of programming content.


    A. Solo Live- Action Television Shows

    A1. The Adventures of Superman: 104 episodes x 30 min (w/comm) each
    A2. Superboy: 100 episodes x 30 min (w/comm) each
    A3. Lois & Clark: 87 episodes x 60 min (w/comm) each
    A4. Smallville: 217 episodes x 60 min (w/comm) each


    B. Solo Live-Action Feature Films

    B1. Superman and the Mole Men: 58 min
    B2. Superman - The Movie: 143 min
    B3. Superman II: 127 min
    B4. Superman II - The Richard Donner Cut: 116 min
    B5. Superman III: 125 min
    B6: Superman IV - The Quest For Peace: 90 min
    B7: Superman Returns: 154 min
    B8: Man of Steel: 143 min


    C. Solo Animated Television Shows

    C1. Filmation Superman: 68 episodes x 10 min (w/comm) each
    C2. Filmation Superboy: 34 episodes x 10 min (w/comm) each
    C3. Ruby-Spears Superman: 13 episodes x 30 min (w/comm) each
    C4. Superman - The Animated Series: 54 episodes x 30 min (w/ comm) each


    D. Solo Animated Feature Films

    D1. Brainiac Attacks: 75 min
    D2. Doomsday: 77 min
    D3. All-Star Superman: 76 min
    D4. Superman vs The Elite: 76 min
    D5. Unbound: 75 min
    D6. The Death of Superman: 81 min


    E. Solo Misc.

    E1. Radio Superman: 2,088 episodes x 15 min each
    E2. Fleischer/Famous Superman: 17 shorts x 10 min each
    E3. Superman 1948 serial: 15 episodes x 15 min each
    E4. Atom Man vs Superman serial: 15 episodes x 15 min each
    E5. Adventures of Superboy 1961 pilot: 25 min
    E6. It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman 1966 musical: ?? min
    E7. It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman 1975 tv movie: ?? min
    E8. The Death of Superman Lives - What Happened: 104 min


    OK, just on his solo stuff alone (which may still not be complete), there's definitely enough material (even without SUPERGIRL, KRYPTON, KRYPTO THE SUPER-DOG, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, SUPER FRIENDS, JUSTICE LEAGUE, BVS, JLU, etc.) for an all-Superman TV channel.

    Whether there's enough interest for such a channel is an entirely different matter.

    With a couple of original shows in addition to all content to date? Easily.

    Of course, getting access to all content to date? Bon Chance.

    If they were to do a Superverse Network, it should coincide with either a brand new live action or animated Superman show. Not merely Superman-related, but a show actually about Superman as an adult, wearing the suit, saving the day.
