Consider the source. Some WB execs said it would be the film of the year. These guys are not going to say anything negative about the film before it comes out.

I can forgive Cavill on that, but his inability to rise above the film's flaws worries me. Cavill hasn't worked in almost 2 years. He's read scripts and such but studios and directors aren't rushing to cast him. Not a good sign.

He was also the only one to screen test for that part. Ouch. Apparently Snyder's chosen one from the start as Routh was Singer's.

Hire an actor for their looks and not their ability to portray one of fiction's most iconic characters.
