Which Superman is the definitive Superman? There have been many, many different depictions of Superman (in the Comics, on TV, and in movies) and they were all different. Cavill isn't identical to any of them, but that's not a bad thing. How do you not agree that he looks similar enough to play the role?
What makes him look more like Mon-El than Kal-El to you? Which depiction of Mon-El are you referring to, and which depiction of Superman? If you want to make such a fine distinction, you must have some sort of reason.
