What some people need to realize is that actors are not the same as their characters. The extreme example of this is the film "Eastern Parade" where we have a love interest between a character played by Judy Garland and one played by Fred Astaire, but since Astaire filled in for Gene Kelly at the last moment we are not supposed to think we have such a huge age difference going on. Although Astaire and Garland were only 23 years apart, so maybe that is not an extreme example.
If example Melissa Sue Anderson was cast as Lois Lane this would maybe be a similar case (although she is actually 2 years closer in age to Cavill than Astaire was to Garland). But that is not at all what we have here.
