Never seen this photo of Reeve before. Look at this guy. Just look at him. That’s Superman. Not an actor. Hardly even a human. That right there is a Kryptonian. Magnificent. No sculpted muscles. No shoulder pads. And lycra (or whatever this suit was made of) isn’t the most flattering on most folks. Reeve got HUGE for this movie. He looks like he could be a quarterback.
For those of you who don’t know (or care), Superman: The Movie is my favorite film of all time. It’s one of the first movies I ever remember watching. It’s what kindled my lifelong love for heroic fiction and ideals. It’s something I throw on for background noise if I’m sick or depressed or need comfort or just need to remind myself to not be an asshole. Christopher Reeve’s sincere, nuanced, honest performance is a big reason for that. His is still the voice I hear in my head when I read most Superman comics.
