Remembering Christopher Reeve/ Superman 15 years after his passing

He was undeniably SUPER even after he finished his time in the most iconic superhero role ever... And 15 years after his death, the world still honors and remembers Christopher Reeve  - the man who starred in the 1978 Richard Donner directed "Superman" film and would reprise the role for three more sequels. His depiction of the heroic DC Comics character in the big screen is legendary, and to this day serves as an inspiration for many depictions and interpretations of the Man of Steel in all forms of media. Several tributes are still done and made for him, and several actors still look up to the Juilliard School as a man ahead of his time.

We miss you Christopher Reeve, and you'll ALWAYS BE SUPERMAN.
