Yeah i know what you're saying, i just think it's possible Cavill will shine in this role specifically, even if he doesn't't in other roles, because it's the sort of role that benefits from the qualities of a novice.

Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
