Christopher is best known for the lead role in the 1978 film, Superman: The Movie, but he was also a director, producer, screenwriter and an avid equestrian.

According to She Knows, Will has been getting a lot of attention for being his father's walking legacy after Christopher passed away in 2004.

Will got his father's famous classic good looks, as girls are also drooling over his chiseled physique. Working as a reporter for ESPN, Will makes frequent appearance on Sports Center.

His Instagram account reflects his growing popularity, with more than 17 000 followers. Some of them wonder if Will would follow in his father's footsteps.

The legendary Superman actor also founded the Christopher Reeve Foundation and co-founded the Reeve-Irvine Research Center.

He died on October 10, 2004. The night before his death, he had gone into a cardiac arrest, which was blamed on an antibiotic he took for an infection.
