In honor of Warner Brothers' release of 'Man of Steel' this weekend, it only seems fitting to remember the guys that previously played Superman.

Superman has been a part of American culture since the late 1930s when DC Comics featured him in a strip, and then his own comic book.

In the past 75 years, there have been several faces associated with Superman - all with a distinctly dimpled chin, muscular build and perfectly styled hair.
