Cause of Death: Complications related to pneumonia

Margot Kidder was not the first woman to play the live action role of Lois Lane, but many consider her the definitive portray on Superman’s love interest, playing the role four time opposite Christopher Reeves in “Superman” (1978), “Superman II” (1980), “Superman III” (1983), and “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987) as well as making a brief stint on the updated Superman story “Smallville.” She would also have a very successful career in television and would appear in horror films like “Black Christmas” (1974), “The Amityville Horror” (1979), and “Halloween II” (2009). With superhero films currently having a resurgence, Kidder was definitely a trailblazer. Although she will truly be missed, her legacy will live on forever.
