Superman Celebration hopes to attract new Man of Steel next year

Posted: Updated:

METROPOLIS -- The 2017 Superman Celebration has just wrapped up, but already organizers are looking ahead to 2018. That will mark the 40th anniversary for the event in Metropolis. 

The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce hopes to bring in Henry Cavill to help mark the anniversary. He's the latest actor to play the role of Superman. A Twitter campaign has started too. 

Over the weekend, organizers of the Superman Celebration also remembered the man who played Batman. Adam West died Saturday at the age of 88. He was a guest at the event in 2002. The Superman Statue in Metropolis adorned a black armband in memory of the Caped Crusader.
