This is true.
part of this role, acting-wise, is making the Superman/CK disguise believable by playing each role subtly yet vastly different.
Routh did an okay job with that thanks to Singer's direction.
Cavill has a bigger challenge. His features will be harder to disguise and it will be harder for him to play reporter Clark in a vastly different way within a real world context. He has to play it in a way that no one will assume CK is Superman. It will be a huge acting feat.
