You don't know what chicken legs are.

"Chicken legs" are very thin, bony legs on a man or a woman; they basically have no shape or curve whatsoever. In sharp contrast, some people are genetically gifted in the sense they have naturally strong/muscular thighs and calves, the latter in particular. Others have to work at it. Of course, like you said, (even if one already has good legs to begin with) lack of symmetry between the upper and lower body can give the appearance of one or more scrawny body parts. Cavill certainly does not have chicken legs.

"He (Batman) is perhaps the only genuine hero amongst them. The trauma of his parents' death is what motivates him and forces him to go on, but what makes him Batman is a decision. He took a decision to be a good guy, which is a decision in life not too many people make. He is a self-made character. He didn't get superpowers, he's not a cyborg, he made a choice to be what he is."
