How Superman IV Became a Disaster: Christopher Reeve's Two-Picture Deal

Description

Christopher Reeve came out of Superman retirement to make Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, a film widely considered a disaster.


He had said in 1983, after the release of Superman III, that he was done with the role that made him a star.


So why did he return for a relatively low-budget superman movie, in which he battled a villain named Nuclear Man?


To help green light another film, Street Smart, which helped launch the film career of Morgan Freeman.
