Superman Celebration 2010 will be huge! Big guests and special events planned

May 31, 2010

If you live in the heartland- try to make it to the annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois this year. There will be big guests- Laura Vandervoort, Sam Witwer and Noel Neill will all be in attendance signing autographs and meeting fans. Noel will be the proud recipient of a great honor as a statue to her as Lois Lane will be unveiled at a special ceremony on June 11.

As an artist continues to sculpt the near-life-size bronze statue of Noel Neil in Utah, the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce is conducting a final drive to collect personalized bricks for the statue base in Metropolis, Illinois.

“This statue will be a lovely tribute to a lady who has given so much of herself to Metropolis,” says Lisa Gower, co-chairman of the Superman Celebration.  Noel Neill, also known as “The First Lady of Metropolis,” has been a frequent guest of the Superman Celebration and broke ground for the statue in June of 2009.

The statue idea was presented to Neil as a gift during her 85th birthday party celebration in California a few years ago.  She is well known for her portrayal of Lois Lane in the memorable television series, The Adventures of Superman.
