Cavill is the perfect balance between classic-handsome, masculine, but still kind looking when he wants to be. Of course, just my opinion.
Ironically, since leaving Smallville Welling has lost some weight, cut his hair and started to look a little less baby-faced and more like his true age, which actually makes him a bit more Superman-like now than when he was in the show. But I agree, Cavill strikes a perfect balance.
