A straight up Batman vs Superman is too gimmicky.

It's like Alien vs Predator but for all the wrong reasons

how bout BS? no sorry just joking...the logos itself would be self-explaining no subtitle needed...
by the way, i just watched daredevil again...and ben is the only one who didnt suck. well atleast not so much as everyone else...
the whole movie is crap...
like a lets try it ''like burton'' wanna be superhero movie...

....a mockup.

affleck took the thing serious imo...
he'll be a great bruce/batman.
depending on the script and the screenplay...cause cavill is also a great casting choice but the whole thing got lost in some ways.

it was like watching kids playing with their toys...

hope they get it a bit more calculated on whats essential and whats hyperbolic.

He was actually the most muscular he had ever been in TDKR, just leaner.
Bale just simply had a different mindset going into TDKR.



I remember reading about how Bale had done more olympic style training because he wanted to not only be aesthetic but athletic with his build as well. I remember something along the lines of him saying he was in the best shape of his life at that time.

Muscle definition is the key to looking massive on screen. This is what Hugh Jackman's trainer said, "In Wolverine, Hugh looks big onscreen, but really heís just ripped. Thatís the secret to looking good. Itís not just about getting big, itís about getting ripped." Cavill's shredded so looks much bigger than he is. Mark Twight claimed Cavill achieved 3% body fat.

His arms are fine, I think atleast as big as Bale. In the picture above he isn't flexing but they generally look big enough.


As impressive of a physique as Cavill attained for MOS. He was NOT 3% body fat. Those pictures look close to 13-14% at best. He gained a LOT of muscle but his body fat was never what I would consider ripped or lean. So for those saying should he get bigger for BVS? I say yes, but that's because I personally think it would look awesome. Will he? No, he may get much leaner for this film however and through doing so LOOK much larger than MOS.

Cavill was at most 10% body fat there. I played college soccer and was anywhere between 6-8% when I played. I'd guess Cavill was in about that range...definitely not 13-14%. One of our goal keepers was the highest bodyfat on the team and he was around 15%, and didn't have near the definition or size that Cavill has. To be that size and have the definition that he had you have to have a low bodyfat %. Plus there's no reason for Twight to lie about Cavill's bodyfat %

Cavill's body fat in MOS appears to fall somewhere between 10 and 12%. If you look at slightly higher quality images (like the one I posted below), you'll notice that his abs are indeed quite ripped -- although not to the extent of someone with a much lower body fat percentage. That said, for the MOS sequel, I don't think Cavill needs to look anymore lean than he does in the original, especially considering that Superman owes his impressive muscularity to the Earth's sun, as opposed to working out at a gym.

Oh nice, according to this chart, I'm just around the 40% range. Better watch out, Cavil, I might just steal your role.

Just skimmed the Muscle & Fitness article with Mark Twight. According to Twight, "Cavill weighed around 190 for the filming of Man Of Steel. His body fat percentage was maintained at 5-7% except for the shirtless scenes for which he dropped to only 3% fat on his body." Interesting.

I honestly don't think any normal man wants to be between 1-4% body fat. How are you even enjoying life?

Just body composition. I lift but I have no aspirations to compete in a bodybuilding show. Even so, bodybuilders are what I would assume most superheroes are modeled after in comics so it's not too far off topic. After lifting for a while I do however know when I see 3% body fat, and there is a reason people refer to them as having "paper skin". 3% is nearly disgusting striations and veins everywhere, complete muscle definition down to the fibers.



The coach was definitely exaggerating but everyone does in hollywood so I don't blame the guy. Cavill is a perfect example of what gaining twenty pounds of mass looks like in a short period of time, naturally unlike some other hollywood actors. It isn't all muscle, but it definitely helps fill you out. The reason Cavill looks better than the guy shown in the 10-12% pic is because he definitely has more muscle than the guy shown. Still about the same body fat but a lot more muscle underneath it. The more muscle you attain the more definition you are able to achieve at higher body fat percentages.
I'm not degrading his physique just trying to set the record clear.
Going back to the thread title, I think Ben will wow us all with how much larger he gets than what we saw in The Town.
