“The Reeve family, like many, will remember Robin for the humor, energy and brightness he brought into our lives through the screen. We will cherish him, though, for the quiet and unwavering support he showed our family through the hardest times. The world knew Robin as a comedic titan, but to our family, he was simply one of our Dad’s dearest friends. From the moment they were classmates at Julliard, their friendship transformed into a brotherhood that was built on a mutual admiration for the theater, the arts and, most importantly, laughter.” Read more here.

Here’s a newly restored full-frame transparency of Christopher Reeve in Gallup, New Mexico (June 1978) taking off after rescuing Jimmy Olsen from Hoover Dam (left). Artist Kristopher Meadows painted this scene with the American Flag many years ago and entitled it, “Someone To Believe In” (right). I sent a museum quality, framed print of the artwork to Christopher Reeve in 2001 and it instantly became Chris’ very favorite Superman item of all time; it hung in his office until his passing on October 10, 2004. Read more about Kris, Chris and the painting here.

17 years ago today, Christopher Reeve received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Here’s one of many photos I shot on that amazing day. See more photos and read the full scoop here.

I have photographed Christopher Reeve’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame numerous times since it was unveiled on April 15, 1997.

Among my photos is this extreme closeup of the “REEVE” portion of Chris’ star shot on March 29, 2010. I wanted you to be able to see all of the detail (and wear) of the materials used to create the star. You’ll notice that I de-emphasized the surrounding street surface and added a shadow around the star to make it pop out a bit.

The file is 2000 pixels wide for your desktop enjoyment.

“I think of Chris all the time. This (cardboard cutout of him as Superman) is right next to my pool, and I get in the pool a lot and I look up there and I think about him a lot. There’s nobody that could have played that role the way he played it. I don’t think anyone will ever come along and play it like he played it — others will have to play it different — and on top of that, he was a really special individual. A great kid, a great person, loving and devoted, a great sense of humor and the personification of a good friend. He also made my career. I think about him an awful lot.” — Richard Donner

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get a nice clear poster of Superman/Reeve standing with the New York skyline behind him (you know the one, with his finger pointed upward) or in front of the waterfront? I used to have the free version from inside StarBurst magazine (issue #2?) on the wall, but it is getting a bit old and tatty.

    I’ve done a bit of a google search, but there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot out there….

  2. stan says:

    Anyone alive in 1978 and saw “Superman” that film left a lasting impression. Richard Donner set the Gold Standard in which to this day nobody has come close to reaching. I was disappointed in the 1989 film “BATMAN” because I thought Tim Burton would follow a similar template that Donner created.

    Its now been over 35 years since the release of “Superman”. It deserves to be held in the same acclaim as “The Wizard of Oz” , “Gone with the Wind” & “The Sound of Music”. All of these films area class unto themselves and deserved the word “Classic” associated with their titles.

    Christopher Reeve el mejor Superman y Clark Kent de todos los tiempos presentes y futuros

  4. Ellen says:

    In a couple days it will be the 35th anniversary of the release of Superman the Movie (Dec 15, 1978) and Christopher Reeve indelibly entered the Superman realm. I saw it the next day and though Id been a George Reeves fan and was convinced I wouldnt like the new movie, I fell in love with his portrayal of both Clark and Supes. To this day despite accepting Dean Cain and Brandon Routh as the man of Steel, (and Tom Welling as the boy of steel, ) Christopher stands head and shoulders above them. He was born to wear the Superman suit.

    Im celebrating by buying a poster, requesting the bluray collection for Christmas and generally browsing my scrapbook from that time.

    Despite a determination to like the new movie Man of Steel, it left me depressed and without the joy Christopher and Richard Donner brought to the movies.

    I guess the simple fact is Christopher made us believe He Was Superman.

    • Pierce says:

      In November 2013, AMC critics examined a question regarding what a modern day movie starring Christopher Reeve as Superman would be like given the hypothetical scenario that Mr. Reeve were still with us on Earth. The cold way that the critics evaluate the merit of how Reeve would do in such a creative attempt moved me to post my feelings on the gift that Mr. Reeve gave to this character and what his portrayal of Superman gave to us.

      The post I shared appears under the current/most recent comment, dated Jan. 12th, 2014, under my post name as Pierce Hunicut. It is my humble tribute to Mr. Reeve that I wanted to share with my fellow Christopher Reeve fans and a show of support toward the fingerprint of goodness that he left in our hearts. I had to write something after I saw the AMC critics discuss the aforementioned subject on the following clip appearing on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7whZaVaTRQ

      Here is my post-sorry I know it’s long but I felt it had to be said and if you see the above video you may see why:
      This discussion moved me to comment in a way I wouldn’t ordinarily do as I seldom post, but I felt strong disappointment in the rationale used to discuss how well a modern day movie would do with Christopher Reeve as Superman. With respect to the hosts of this show and their opinions and those who agreed with their reasons, I disagree in looking at the limitations imposed on a creative idea, based on marketing predictions, especially with regard to this character. Superman is a special character that could make someone with malice in their heart enter a theatre and leave with goodwill towards their fellow man. The character was portrayed with humility, politeness, and meekness by Reeve in a way that established these characteristics as the embodiment of Superman. Underneath the powers he possessed his true difference from society was always in his goodness, which is not a focus in the new movie as it was in the original. Unfortunately, Reeve portrayed the qualities of humility, politeness, and meekness in unique way that is not something that can be manipulated. Focusing on this quintesential portrayal by Reeve is a home run because Superman did not have to be this way – he was very powerful. Moreover, watch the first Superman again and then watch the current movie and you will notice a difference that is slightly disturbing about where it appears our values have oriented. Henry Cavill did a wonderful job, but the direction of our society and the direction of this character is being lost to bring him more inline with “current day thinking or popularity”. Group think/current day perception appears not to focus on humility and meekness. It is to be physically desirable, successful, overpowering in prowess, as ultimately measured by dollars and cents (a premise that the AMC critics use to coldly evaluate the merit of how well a movie like this wold do) which is the seemingly accepted priority of modern day. To be a leading man among a host of movies that focus on these shallow priorities and always have to have, ‘a dark side,’ or an instantaneously gratifying explosion is not to say that Christopher Reeve would do bad in a Superman movie. It is to say that we are doing bad as a society in the values we cherish and where we seek entertainment. What the critics are highlighting is that we focus too much on shallow reasons for why a story should take a certain plot turn, character portrayal, or other marketing appeal. If someone with the right tact, care, and artistic creativity could envision a beautiful enough way to allow Christopher Reeve to grace the screen as Superman again than maybe even the critics would be surprised at how well his portrayal of the character could resonate with the good left in our entertainment appetites. The critics are right, putting Reeve on the screen as Superman would not allow the features of the movie to focus on his physical stature, sex appeal, or prowess. It would have to focus on things we are as a society not interested in. Maybe a work of art and or an artist doesn’t need to be so concerned with whether their is a market for an artistic endeavor. Sometimes its better to focus on other things when telling a story rather than the merits of how much money it will make or whether an ingredient like Christopher Reeve has been a successful enough leading man. Lastly, consider this for those who have seen both movies. Which one would you have rather seen first to give you your first memory of Superman and to believe and experience that a man could fly?

      • admin says:

        I greatly commend you Pierce. And appreciate that you have taken the time to share this with all of us.

        Bravo for having Courage…as Chris Reeve did every day.

        Yours is the best post I’ve had on this site for months.

        Thank you.

          Thank you Jim. I enjoy your site and I think its a class act among the best available internet collaborations. I’m glad your site provided a forum to share the thoughts we have on the good that Mr. Reeve left us. Thank you for your endeavors that foster this work of art and best wishes for continued success.

    Just a word to say how much i love this site and yes Chris Reeve stays the real man of steel! Thanks for your work on this website!

  7. EDWARD says:

    Looking at the poster where Chris points skywards, it makes me feel good to know that we can still have Superman the Movie and Superman 2 to take us back to a time of innocence and greatness with the ulimate escapism, out fantasy of flight.

    Jim, this is still a great site, and as we frequently visit as Richard Donner and Superman fans, it is a testament to the great man the world came to know and still revere as the ultimate Man of Steel. Even thou the new movie tried, I think it left one important element to out, it took itself too serious and it had not “Verisimilitude”, Chris will always be Superman.

    Keep it going man.

    Thank you from South Africa forever a fan.

  8. Radjan says:

    Christopher Reeve will always be my number one Superman,
    eventhough the new actor Henry Cavill did a swell job too.

    Capedwonder.com surely is a great website for a fan like me, where I can enjoy Mr.Reeve’s superman movies, which I saw back in the 80′s, I really love it.

    I do hope to see much more lovely Superman wallpapers and pictures, they absolutely are a blast to look at and enjoy them.

    Radjan.

  9. Rodrigo S Fonseca says:

    Chris Reeve is the real Ma of Steel!

  10. Meran Covolo says:

    I just wanted to let you know that only this year (2013) on May 25th I had what I call “accidental exposure” to Superman and Christopher Reeve. I watched Superman the movie on tv, then as I was searching online for stuff to do with / or both, I came across your site and fell completely in love with it. It catered for both! 2 in 1!
    One of the massive highlights was the inspirational quotes page from C Reeve. They have helped me as I have been going through a bit of a tough time lately and they heave helped me a lot. And I have to say it’s the biggest and best C Reeve quotes page online I have ever found.
    Christopher Reeve is my generation Superman (I was born in the 1980s) I love him so much Shame I discovered him after he has passed away but my love for him is “super” strong as ever. He will always be my Superman on screen and in real life.
    Thank you for a fantastic site that I love so much and will enjoy visiting again and again.

  11. Matt says:

    Hey Jim,

    Longtime visitor to your website. I check it out nearly everyday.

    You’ve got me worried though… Haven’t seen new updates from you in awhile, especially with a new Superman movie out in theatres. Hope you’re doing okay.

    Matt

  12. Art says:

    What a wonderful Site and tribute to a man that had a major Impact upon my youth. I am looking forward to the new Man of Steel Film. However, I will have a heavy heart seeing a reboot of my beloved Superman films. I’m sure that the movie will stand on its own….But to me nobody will ever surpass Reeves performance as Superman. There was something very special about his portrayal of the Man of Steel. May God Bless him and you Jim for creating this beautiful site.

  13. admin says:

    No idea yet Michael, thanks!

  14. Edward says:

    Hi Jim

    I have been a Chris Reeve fan as Superman from the first moment we rented the Betamax back in 1983. For me he was more than just a superhero, more than just an iconic figure, he was the hope and the endurance that we always look for in live.

    Chris lives on here, and you are truly the keeper of not only the flame, but of all our memories of how good it felt being a kid when Chris was patrolling the screen as the man of steel.

    Richard did not make a movie, he made a beacon that will forever guide the way for all superhero incarnations in the cinema industry.

    “Take flight, and look forward”

    Thank you, from South Africa.

  15. Ira Aaronson says:

    Jim, what should most definitely be remembered is that despite Christopher’s illnesses and injuries, he kept coming back a multitude of times. What would have killed the normal man didn’t seem to phase him. He most certainly was the greatest example of a Superman here on earth! RIP Chris and Dana. Your site is fabulous and does Supermanand Mr. Reeves the honor they definitely deserve. God bless you sir!!!

  16. Gavin Connell says:

    Hi Jim and the team at Caped Wonder,

    I just wanted to express how wonderful this site is and it pays homage and tribute to the late great Christopher Reeve and it’s pleasing to see that a site like this perfectly catalogues every aspect of Chris’s legacy as Superman and keeps the beacon lit for many more generations to come as I feel it’s important that the younger generation can enjoy how convincing and genuine Chris’s portrayal was as Superman. I have been a fan since I was a young boy and Jim Bowers the way he has perfectly captured and restored so many wonderful Superman Movie moments for all of us fans is truly exceptional and he has an amazing talent to capture and preserve Christopher in his most iconic role, Ironically I saw Superman 4 with my grand dad back in 1987 and it would be the last time Christopher Reeve would fly across the cinematic screen as Superman. My grand dad died a year later but I hold onto this memory. So keep up the outstanding work and to me Chris was an amazing individual with a great deal of courage strength and tremendous Character, In my opinion he will always be Superman in more ways than one and thank you Richard Donner for helping launch the Magic this film conveys.

    Wonderful site Jim. I love the gallery sections, it brings back so many memories.

  20. To whom it may concern:

    As I was looking at some of the wallpaper of Christopher Reeve as Superman, I noticed alot of pencil sketch artwork in the background and was wondering where I might get my hands on them as they resemble Christopher alot and would be nice to add to my collection. Any help would be greatly appreciated…thanx a whole bunch and keep up the good work with the site, I truly do enjoy visiting and seeing what’s new.

    Sincerely: Rebecca F.

  21. Jim, thank you very much for everything. Christopher Reeve is Superman and you are Good-Man :)

    I think it would cool if Warner would re-release Superman and Superman II the Richard Donner Cut at the movies.

    Anyone agree?

  25. Frank Berman says:

    If I had one thing Superman related I can tell a Warner Bros. rep. it would be this: You HAVE to re-release Superman: the Movie in theaters…in 3D. Now THAT would be a MOUTH-DROPPING experience. 8O)

  26. Jayce76 says:

    My goodness! Has it been ten years? Well my biggest congrads to all who make this wonderful site possible. Where’s here to ten more awesome years!

  27. Christopher Reeve will always be Superman in my book. He inspired many and he will not be forgotten. A great man and a remarkable human being who, along with many, made us believe that a Man could truly fly. He is still sadly missed to this day. I still have a hard time believing that he, like Roy Scheider, is no longer with us.

    SHAME ON JACK O’HALLORAN FOR HIS UNCOOTH REMARKS!!

  28. Greg Green says:

    Who can forget Margot Kidder and the chemistry she had with Christopher Reeve.

  29. john says:

    A good tribute. I honestly believe Superman the movie 3D would leave a new generation of audience in awe of this film and cement Reeves as the best interpretation.of the character Just think 3 year spacecraft journey , 2 train scenes running over the audience, , 12 year ‘hypnotizing’ intergalactic space study , superman flying or zooming towards camera over a dozen times and nearly into a tall tree and more! Even the opening credits would be Awwwwwesome! As lex luther would say to superman he would spare no expence in making superman( fans) feel right at home . a gift from the home planet (krypton) in this case D.C./ Warners..

  30. This Web site Is “SUPER Unbelievable Please keep it up I’m always visiting this web site on a regular basis simply to see whats new. Thanks Jim for an unbelievable web site and Facebook Page.

  31. Darren Briscoe says:

    I have been locked in the ‘Phantom Zone’ for years and never knew of this incredible website. Now I am here I will make it my ‘Fortress of Solitude’ for all things relating to Mr Reeve. I applaud the way you are keeping his legacy and memory alive…. Blessings and clear skies.

  32. Christopher Reeve played the role with so much respect and grace barring all the camp and cheezyness of the 80′s and late 70′s that its so hard to think of anyone else as Superman.

    I love how Chris’s Superman was so human and yet so Super. Also great to see how much intelligence and thought Chris put in his Superman and Clark Kent characters which makes em so refreshing to watch.

    Go Chris Go!!!!!

  33. Janal says:

    What a great tribute site. I would love to hear your thoughts on the new Superman. Chris Reeve is the best and only Superman in my opinion (I like Dean and Brandon, too…just not as much as Chris Reeve.) and I love that you have such a great site honoring him and his friends. You should check out this: http://www.plewto.com/superman.html – This guy does some great \S/ logos.

    Also, you may want to check out: http://www.metropolisplus.com/Superman/ – Great history lesson on the Superman’s insignia.

    Espero ser el primero de España en comentar jajaj, me parece una pagina genial y aprovecho para dar ideas desde aqui a los encargados de salvar a superman en el cine. Podría hacerlo en animation 3d con christopher y margot, continuando con la saga y con los demas protagonistas. Jamas abra un superman como chris, y seguro que mas de uno lo sabe, saludos a los fans de superman y a los que crearon esta pagina son unos genios. Viva superman para siempre.

    Jim,
    Once again I congratulate you on a very nice website. Your amazing photos and videos and other priceless imagery for Superman The Movie are a wonderful work of art. All of the images and videos are very tastefully done. Keep up the great work on keeping all of the Superman movies and Christopher Reeve’s legacy alive my friend. Thanks again for all of the great memories that you have shared with your website.

  42. Jim, I have told you this already but I would like to say it ¨out loud¨. Since the very first time we talked I felt what a great person you are and how passionate you are about Chris´ life. I have known you for a few years now and I can say without fear of being wrong that you are a wonderful person and friend. This new version of the site is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how much effort you make to honor Chris´ life and acting carreer, I think he couldn´t have asked for a greater person and fan. It has been my honor and pleasure to meet you and to helped you during all these years and and sincerely wish you a whole more to come! I am thrilled to call you my friend.

    Agreed with the other Aaron, indeed Jim you are an incredible person and very talented beyond belief. I have had the honour to not only communicate and call you friend, but in the past have been able to do some work for your site.

    The new site is a real fresh upgrade, which is not only catching to the eye, but it’s also a wonderful tribute. A place where people can come and enjoy the incredible legacy of Christopher Reeve and his memorable career of Superman. Reeve’s spirit both the man himself and his Superman is kept alive through the hard work of a Superguy like yourself.
