Christopher Reeve (1952 - 2004)

Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Somewhere in Time (1980) [Richard Collier]: Dies of starvation in his apartment, after losing the will to live due to being separated from Jane Seymour through time. He appears as a spirit afterwards being reunited with Jane. (Thanks to Olenka and William)
  • Deathtrap (1982) [Clifford Anderson]: Killed (off-screen) during a struggle with Michael Caine; the film suddenly cuts from a scene of Michael and Christopher fighting to a scene of two different actors 'killing' each other in a stage play based on the storyline that Irene Worth is premiering. 
  • Superman III (1983) [Evil Superman]: Evil Christopher Reeve killed by the good Christopher Reeve after a one on one battle at a scrap yard. The good Christopher Reeve would survive in this movie.
  • Bump in the Night (1991) [Lawrence Muller]: Commits suicide by jumping out of a window rather than be arrested. (Thanks to Robert)
  • Village of the Damned (1995) [Alan Chaffee]: Killed in an explosion when he brings a bomb into the barn/classroom in order to destroy all the alien children (while also struggling to keep them from reading his mind and finding out about the bomb).

TV Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Smallville: Sacred (2005) [Dr. Virgil Swann]: Dies (off-screen), shortly before the start of the episode; we are informed of his death when Tom Welling gets the news. (This episode was filmed after Christopher's real-life death.) (Thanks to Alex)
