CLEVELAND — Officials in Cleveland are searching for a new site to land a statue of Superman.

The Plain Dealer reports city officials, the statue committee and sculptor David Deming met this week to discuss the location change. Officials originally planned to put the Man of Steel near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum but the site is no longer available.

Deming’s 4,000-pound (1,814-kilogram), 10-foot-long (3-meter) statue includes a tribute to Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The Cleveland pair created the legendary comic book character in the 1930s.

Committee member Michael Olszewski says he’s confident the group will find a home for the statue that’s better than the original site. Possible spots include Edgewater Park along Lake Erie and Cleveland’s cultural center, University Circle.
