Actors who have played Superman
Remembered now for his mysterious death, Reeves wore the tights on TV in the ’50s.
At 25, he gained 30 pounds to win the starring role in the 1978 blockbuster.
He was TV’s Superman back in the ’90s, aided and abetted by Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane.
He’s Clark Kent on WB’s “Smallville.” Fans hoped he’d make the leap to the big screen.
