Just hoping Henry isn't a stail, no personality, just acting the part kinda Sups as Routh was. Carisma is KEY, the SMILE is GOD! lol Lets all pray for the best!
From the trailer/interviews and articles I've read for Snyder's vision, I see Cavill as a tortured individual who's trying to find himself. I just hope his acting doesn't come off as stoic.
Reeve was much more of an optimistic/lighthearted Superman presumably because he was raised by Brando's Jor-El, a presumably kind father, in the fortress of solitude from the age of presumably 18 to 28 (movie continuity).
Maybe Cavill won't have the guidance that Jor-El offered Reeve's Superman. If this is the case, he would probably be shaped by the world around him and would need to lose the naivety and be much more of a serious, less lighthearted Superman.
