METROPOLIS, Ill. (AP) - Organizers of a yearly festival honoring Superman in the southern Illinois city that claims the Man of Steel as its favorite son say this year’s installment will have plenty of celebrity fare.

KFVS-TV (https://bit.ly/NUQxYp) reports that Metropolis’ Superman Celebration from June 12-15 will feature an appearance by Dean Cain. He’s the actor best known for playing Superman and his Clark Kent alter ego in the 1990s television series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.”

Billy Dee Williams played district attorney Harvey Dent in the 1989 Batman movie. He’ll be joining Cain for a June 14 appearance at the festival in the 6,500-resident Ohio River community.

Also appearing this year will be Valerie Perrine, who played Superman rival Lex Luthor’s girlfriend, Miss Teschmacher, the 1978 and 1980 Superman movies.
