I really should ignore it but it has infected the Henry Cavill thread as well so now it's twice the annoyance. If I didn't have to deal with it so much I honestly wouldn't be whining. It's in the Marvel threads, it's in the DC. There are always those unimpressed whinners whom expect and actor to look like a body builder 24/7.

Now that it's Cavill they've crossed the line, right?

lol I get why you might think that but no.

Actually Terry, I was whinning on here before any of that body warrior nonsense infected yet another thread. I'm far more annoyed with this thread right now than any other. And for the record, I think the pizza jokes are actually funny which is why I haven't spoken out against them, I'm not a complete wet blanket. The pizza jokes are not a big deal at all.

Haha. Yeah we should all stop freaking out. Batfleck will look good. As good as Cavill? No, but then I don't think it's quite as important for this movie, for these two characters and the stages they are in.

The only way people will stop complaining about Affleck is if he and Cavill do this in the movie,

Great article on body image and what it takes to become a big budget male action star.

This movie is doomed, since Affleck will look like Jack Black in Tropic Thunder.

Interesting article, especially the area about stars especially those over 40 turning to testosterone and HGH treatments to help build muscle.

I thought the article was a good read. I've talked to my sister about how much male bodies have changed on screen in the last decade, how men are starting to see what women have had to go through like forever.

What women have had to go through? No one forced them to do it.

This argument holds no water to me. Perfect and unreasonably beautiful women are a male fantasy. Super ripped male heroes are also a male fantasy. In no way did they design He-Man to look like that to appeal to girls. It's completely inacccurate to say that men have the same body image pressures put on them as women do.

While I agree to some extent, I would also say you should tell that to the girls lined up outside of Abercrombie and Fitch getting pictures with the shirtless models that great them.

I'm not saying woman don't like attractive, muscular guys. Of course they do. But, for instance, the reason why male superheroes are extremely muscular in comics has nothing to do with appealing to women.

Very valid point.

Speaking of that, I've actually read that the rate of steroid abuse among gay male teens is incredibly higher compared to straight male teens and that probably plays into your point there.
