Jun 16, 2001 | 6:50am EDT

Pueblo Film Licensing, successor-in-interest to late Superman producer Alexander Salkind, has sued Warner Bros. and DC Comics for $20 million on their release of the Superman films on DVD. According to, Pueblo's lawsuit filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court says, "Salkind, having 'fathered' the Superman pictures, was determined to preserve their creative integrity. [For their release on DVD, the films were] re-edited and altered in a manner that would violate the Superman Picture Contracts and has done so unlawfully using materials owned by the Plaintiff." The suit doesn't explain how the creative integrity was breached.
