What's so unrealistic about a bodybuilder sized Batman? The "big guys can't move around" mentality is a very, very bad stereotype. Look at football players and MMA fighters. Some of them are just as big, if not, bigger than Henry Cavill and they move around just as well as a lightweight. So no, it's not just a comic thing, it's real life too.
