The Metropolis Marvel himself, played perfectly by Christopher Reeve, is chronicled in this 1978 classic. From his early childhood on the planet Krypton (and time with foster parents in Smallville) to becoming the savior of Metropolis, Supes never fails to entertain and inspire audiences as he uses his many powers (rendered impressively considering the era) as he takes on the evil genius Lex Luthor. Director Richard Donner pulled out all of the staples of the DC comic series for the film, and even after numerous sequels and re-imaginings of the series, Reeve's Superman has yet to be surpassed. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photos: Disney)
