Great list! I was wondering if I could steal your idea? Except do it on Wonder Woman. That is if that hasn't been done before. If it has well... it's still a great list!

I love Christopher Reeve! He was a great Superman! Truly sad what happened to him!

Superb list!

I honestly did not like the Reeves movies at all. Welling on Smallville was good, though I didn't care for the show itself.

What I did like was Routh in Superman Returns. This was what I had been waiting for!! I had no idea they weren't going to use him for the sequel. :(

Great list though!

Very well done and comprehensive list!

a photo of Gerard Christopher was used by mistake in the part indicating John Haymes Newton. This should be corrected if possible. Christopher is shown as both himself and Newton. Case of mistaken identity.

Christopher Reeve IS Superman, IMHO.
