The past few days have seen us bringing you our list of Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters, along with the talented actors who have portrayed the characters on the big screen. We have already brought you plenty of impressive performances, such as that of Ian McKellen as Magneto in the X-Men movies, which was number six on our list, bringing us to number five on the list for today.
Already in our list of Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters, we have brought you a character from the Superman movies, in the form of Terence Stamp in the role of General Zod, and today we have yet another character from the Superman films. We have seen a number of stars playing Superman over the years, including Dean Cain in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Tom Welling in Smallville, Brandon Routh in Superman Returns, and Henry Cavill in Man of Steel, plus many more.
However, while we have seen some impressive performances as Superman over the years, there is one actor that stands above them all, and that is the late, great Christopher Reeve, who has been our favourite Superman to date. Christopher was spot on as the bumbling, clumsy, Clark Kent, while also bringing the humanity to the character, making him relatable and a hero that the viewers really wanted to get behind.
While we have Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, aka Superman for the next few years now, it is going to take something special for him to live up to the performance of Christopher Reeve in the role, who will most likely always be our favourite Superman ever.
Come back tomorrow for number four on our Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters list.
