Superman Curse

The Superman Curse is an idiotic theory that any one who plays Superman or is involved with adapting the character is doomed to a horrible fate.
Supposed Victims
The following are actors commonly sited as beening victims of the Superman Curse. There are few more I didn't list, because the list was too long.
  • The Fleischer Brothers- They made the classic Superman cartoons. After making them, they started to fight and lost money and had to sell their company.
  • Kirk Alyn- Played Superman in serials and failed to find work else where.
  • George Reeves- The first actor to play Superman on television. He was found shot dead.
  • Danny Dark- Played Superman for the Super Friends cartoons and died of pulmonary hemorrhage.
  • Christopher Reeve- Play Superman in the movie of the same name. He fell of a horse and his body became paralyzed from the neck down.
  • Margot Kidder- Played Lois Lane and suffers from extreme bipolar disorder
  • Mark Pillow- Played Supes in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and never starred in another movie

People Who "Escaped" the Curse

Despite the latter, the various actors who played Superman and members of his supporting cast, such as Brandon Routh, Gene Hackman, Ned Beatty, Jon Cryer, to name a few, led successful acting carrers
