Default Re: Henry Cavill IS Superman - Part 3

If someone has a problem with Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman's characterization in Man of Steel, it's not Henry Cavill who's at fault for that. Henry did an excellent job with the material he was provided. Is he the best actor ever? No, but I think he's pretty good and has the potential to be even better with more work and experience with better material. I think STARMAN hit the nail right on the head in that people confuse flamboyancy for charisma. I don't understand the need for Henry's real personality to come through seeing as he's playing Superman onscreen, not himself (you know, the whole point of acting). If you want more RDJ-style hammy, scenery-chewing, watch that, rather than unfairly expecting it from other actors who are actually trying to act.
