Welcome to CapedWonder™.com. Here you will be able to enjoy a large variety of rare, unique and high-quality Christopher Reeve and Superman movie photographs and artwork, as well as video clips and audio files, interesting and informative trivia, special features, articles and resources…all with improved navigation.
CapedWonder™.com’s Mission is to Honor and Celebrate Christopher Reeve’s legacy as an Actor, Humanitarian, Teacher and Family Man; and to Honor the Directors, Filmmakers, Writers, Cast and Crew of the original Superman movie franchise.
The world first came to know Christopher D’Olier Reeve in 1978 with his star-making portrayal of Superman in Superman-The Movie, setting a new standard for heroism and humility and becoming a larger-than-life role model and hero to many people of this generation. In 1995, Chris became a hero once again to a generation, putting a very human face to paralysis and spinal cord injuries; and showing extraordinary courage and determination, not only to build a new life for himself and his family, but also fight for the rights of the paralyzed and the disabled. In the nine and a half years that followed, until his passing on October 10, 2004, Chris showed the world that a cape and superpowers were not necessary to be a hero; perseverance, hope, love and humility, combined with inner strength and the will to live, made him a hero all over again.
Since CapedWonder™.com’s official launch on March, 28, 2002, I have received many personal letters, compliments and suggestions from fans and celebrities about the site and my mission to honor Christopher Reeve’s legacy as Man and Superman. I am very grateful for the many giving and honest fans and friends I have met during this 10-year+ long journey.
Some folks have had the impression that I work for Warner Bros., and that I worked on the Christopher Reeve Superman film series. The truth is that I was in high school when the first movie was being filmed. Today, my profession and passion include high-end commercial/corporate photography, graphic design and marketing. You can read more about me here.
It has been a truly wonderful and rare privilege to know some of the Superman celebrities, directors, producers and other movie industry professionals, and books editors, designers and publishers, and to have the opportunity to be a research/creative consultant and imaging contributor for corporations such as Warner Bros., DC Comics, Taschen Publishing, Film Score Monthly/Screen Archives Entertainment and Cinemaquette.com.
From many years of research, studying hundreds of location, set, and publicity photographs, and discussions with celebrities, movie crew members, and other die-hard fans, I’ve gained much insight on the Reeve Superman movie series (and film-making in general). It’s a fascinating and unique part of film history that has captivated me for more than thirty years. I know there is much more to learn, experience and share, and that challenge is always very exciting to me!
So to everyone who has supported CapedWonder™.com and been responsible for my good fortune, I thank you very, very much…again. It has been a honor to be able to share this website and its content with all of you.
Thanks for visiting today, and for taking the time to read this page.
