On the head size thing.....Ok, I think maybe some are letting what they see on the comic book page color reality a bit. Thing is it's standard practice for Comic book artists to deliberately draw the heroes heads a little smaller than a more proportionately accurate drawing would be (the average male height is about 6.5 heads tall, whereas in comic art they will be often be drawn at over 8).

Simple reason is the make them look less dumpy or stocky for the books. With that in mind Cavill's head is no bigger or smaller than is normal (if anything I'd say his height is more than the 6.5 average)
