Once upon a time I was a 4 year old little girl, and my Daddy took me to see Superman with Christopher Reeve. (He was my first boyfriend along with Harrison Ford.) I mean who didn't love Superman and Han Solo?
Flash forward 15 years, and I'm on summer break from BYU visiting my college roommate who's from California. We went on the tram tour at Universal and saw the sites. On our tour we passed by what looked like an active set, but everyone seemed to have gone on break. The operator stopped briefly then moved on. My roomie and I were sitting in the back and on some whim I decided to turn around to look at the set. From behind a flag, out stepped Christopher Reeve! He looked at me and must have seen the shocked 4 year old little girl face I'm sure I had because he quickly put his finger up to his lips to quiet me. Then he smiled...but it was too late: "SUPERMAN!" I called out. His smile broke out into a huge grin and he waved. It took about .000333 seconds for everyone to turn around and "my moment" with Superman passed as everyone clamored to the back of the tram to take pictures. But I'll never forget. Because for that brief one minute that it took for that to happen...I believed...
With the newest Man of Steel trailer out today, I thought I'd share my Superman moment.
CANNOT WAIT for June 14th, 2013!!
I'm a HUGE Cavill fan as well, so I'm excited to see his take on our superhero.
