Christopher Reeve’s Superman Dons ‘Man Of Steel’ Suit In New Fan Video

A new fan video imagines Christopher Reeve's Superman in the costume worn by Henry Cavill's version of the DC Comics hero in 'Man of Steel'.

While fans will probably continue to debate over who is the best actor to play Superman for generations, Christopher Reeve’s portrayal of the iconic DC Comics hero remains the top choice for many. Now, animator Mike Habjan has combined the past with the present in a new fan video featuring Reeve’s Superman in the costume worn by Henry Cavill in Man of Steel.

The video features clips of Superman from Habjan’s previously released Superman vs Hulk video with the Man of Steel costume design now animated on the DC hero instead of the classic Reeve suit. Those concerned that future Superman vs Hulk videos will abandon the classic suit need not fear as Habjan has noted that the Reeve Superman suit will be used in future installments of the series. You can check out the video below!

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
