Those guys have little more going for them then say Tobey Maguire in the first Spiderman. Really ripped, but not a lot of mass on them.
Routh looked just about right in the DVD extra footage of him working out, maybe add a little more to that, but his suit is the problem, not the body. They really need to do something to that suit to accentuate his definition, not cover it.

I haven't seen that. (DVD extras)
The suit definiley doesn't make him look ripped to me.

There are a few more scans, cant seem to find them.

Even if Brandon had the exact same chest definition as those guys, it wouldnt be evident through the suit.

Those pics are proof it's the suit as he doesn't look that big onscreen

Doesn't matter though if it's not visible on screen.

the problem isn't Routh's build....it's the suit. they need to go with a fabric that doesn't squeeze Routh's muscles out. they need to go with a lighter, more stretchy fabric....that way you can actually see the creases in Routh's muscles and his veins.

another thing they need to do is make sure that Routh works out and reaches his ideal build BEFORE they start making the suit. one of the problems during production is that Routh was getting TOO big for the suit that they tailored for him (during pre-production).

another problem is Routh's hair. the hairstylist should've made his hair shorter. longer hair makes his head look bigger which makes him, as a whole, look smaller. i showed how his hair can make him look bigger and more masculine just by cutting it.

"And the chicks go nuts"


Brandon said it best himself:
"It's not how big you are, it's how good you look in the suit"

In that respect Brandon, you kinda got screwed.

I agree with Dorky Fresh that a different, less bulky hairstyle would be beneficial for the sequel.

How bout we just pray Singer pays attention to the important stuff, like getting a good story on film featuring the Man of Steel. Had the story been better in Superman Returns, you wouldn't have minded Routh at the size he was in SR.

However, if you want my professional opinion on the matter, Superman should be built like Tom Welling, who has the perfect build for the character. The guy looks like a big strong farm boy who retains a degree of definition.

Wise words!
Yeah I forgot to mention Welling. He looks very menacing with his build even when hes wearing a baggy shirt.

I also agree about Rouths hair being WAYYY to long and taking away from his build and making him look younger too. That plus the weird shaped suit didn't help.
