Ehh i would still give that to reeve. I'm not even a huge fan of the original superman films but i still think reeves is the standard for the physical personification for superman and the fact that he was able to look like he did with no padding or a high-tech suit is testament to that.

I give MOS props for not pulling a returns though and trying to cast a reeve 2.0 which would never live up to the original. Cavil is unique enough to avoid too many reeve comparisons.
