Christopher Reeve is Superman. No substitutes.
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 12:17 PM by DerekG
I saw the original Donner film last night and marveled at Reeves performance. He didnt play Superman; he was Superman. His mark is as indelible as Bogarts (Sam Spade), Leighs (Scarlett OHara), and McKellans (Gandalf). Just magical. And they only gave him two decent scripts.

I'll never be able to watch another iteration without wishing this man were alive, happy, healthy--and onscreen.

1. I completely agree
There will never be another Superman in my book. Christopher WAS Superman and nobody else can take his place.
