According to, the Superman documentary that features Gene Simmons has just come out on DVD. As previously reported, the documentary debuted early May at the Hot Docs film festival in Toronto, Canada. Titled "Look, Up In The Sky! The Amazing Story Of Superman", the approximately two-hour documentary has several insiders and celebrities explaining the magic of the whole Superman phenomenon. The almost 70-year-old "Man Of Steel" is not just a mythic symbol of hope but also one of the most famous pop art icons.

In the documentary, narrated by Kevin Spacey (who plays the role of Lex Luthor in the latest Superman movie), Gene talks about coming to America (stating Superman is the ultimate immigrant kid) and mentions that as a kid he would grab a towel to wrap around his neck and — whenever Superman jumped off to fly — he would jump off his bed. Gene also comments on the mysterious death of the first Superman actor, who supposedly was either murdered or killed himself (trying to fly out the window). Other celebrities featured in the documentary include authors, historicians, comic book writers, actors, producers or publishers such as Stan Lee, Margot Kidder, Mark Hamill and John Peters.
