True, I didn't say he didn't have mass, but honestly I'm not that impressed by his physique with the suit on, than I am with Cavill's with is shirt off.

I pretty much agree. But as we know, Cavill did try on the Reeve suit for the auditioning, and as I recall "nobody laughed", and his appearance in it was a factor in the decision to cast him as Superman. I wish we could've seen it as well.

This is extremely debatable. Cavill has a great build too, and great genetics. He has a fantastic frame, and being a shorter guy than Reeve, it's naturally easier to fill it in and look bigger. I haven't seen any photos of Reeve shirtless to be able to judge it, apart from this one:

But I think this is not a good example to comment on his physique for Superman. It's obvious that he did put on mass, and being a tall guy he looks massive, but I'm still not as impressed by him than I am with Cavill.

Agreed. That was my point.
