Metropolis has been home to a ton of big stars over the years.
With "Man of Steel" hitting theaters this weekend, we're checking in some of the other actors and actresses to play Superman, his allies and enemies through the years -- from the 1978 movie to TV shows like "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" and "Smallville."
