That's assuming its as easy to gain the 1st pound as it is the 99th pound, or that the details you mentioned do some of the work for you. Yes, actors can put on some weight, but that "100 pounds is easy" comment was really weird. Also, actors often don't put on weight, or take a year so, because it doesn't work with the projects they do before or after their superhero roles.

You are not. He knows it too, but even he's not willing to make Superman black, but even the half baked Hancock we got trumps Brandon Routh and Bryan Singer easily.
