    Already a known face by then, George Reeves played Superman after initially refusing to it. The role made him a star almost instantly.

    When one thinks of Superman, actor Chistopher Reeves comes first in mind. The actor was perhaps the most popular Superman of all time.

    In 1978, Director Richard Donner made the film 'Superman'. The film used about every visual trick available, and it has become a modern classic.

    Although, he did not receive as much popularity as Reeve, Cain did manage to capture the imagination of loyal fans of Superman. Actress Teri Hatcher played Lois Lane.

    Although a good actor, Brandon Routh's portrayal of the iconic superhero did not get that great feedback.
