It"s Time For Superman Movies To Grow Beyond Christopher Reeve

Superman movies would benefit from moving on from Christopher Reeve's iconic portrayal of the Man of Steel. Superman has been adapted to movies and television for decades, but it was really with Christopher Reeve's iconic performance as the Last Son of Krypton in Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie that he truly became a cinematic icon. Since Christopher Reeve's portrayal of Superman, the character has been adapted in numerous movies, with DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn writing and directing the upcoming Superman: Legacy, set for release in 2025.
In an interview with GQ, Gunn spoke of Superman: The Movie as being one of his five favorite comic book movies. Gunn's comment about being "influenced" by Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve also seems to indicate that Reeve's performance as Superman is at least partially guiding the writing and casting of Superman: Legacy. While the spirit of Reeve's performance can be helpful in a measured sense for Superman movies, the constant comparisons to Reeve have become a major problem for the Superman movies and actors to succeed him. Here is why Superman movies need to finally grow further than the enduring influence of Christopher Reeve's portrayal of Kal-El.
