Not only that, Donner had to reshoot parts of the film (and aspects of Superman II he had already filmed) at the end of principal photography because Reeve had continued to bulk up during that period.
Reeve was good in the suit. Cavill is good in the suit. Silly to argue who looks more muscular or whatever. Both could kick my ass.
