I don't think there will be shirtless scenes in this film (I may be wrong!) but now he is already established as Superman I can't see a scene where he is wandering around with his shirt off. I think he will get big, he'll fill the suit out nicely, but maybe not get quite so cut. Who knows though?? I was one of the people who, although I really supported his casting, was a little bit apprehensive about whether Cavill would be able to get big enough in the short time frame... and he surprised me a lot then so who knows?!
Yes, the shirtless scene was actually added by Zack Snyder to the script because he wanted to show Superman's physique and mainly he said to show that the body in the suit was real and not some rubber muscles.
So having established Superman's physique, they might not opt to go for shirtless scenes this time around.
But of course Cavill will have to get very big and trim again to fill out his suit which is kinda a mold of his body.
