Thats based on Reeve I think its from Secret Origin in which Superman looks like a cross eyed version of Reeve.

The only problem i personally have with suit is the underwear since no sane person one today would willing wear it and it detracts from the overall real and modern feel of the costume.
That's either Superboy or Superman's gay cousin.

I agreed that Supe should be in the Clint Walker/Alex Ross/Kurt Swan mold. A guy that's just bigger built than the magority but who doesn't overdue the muscles.

As far as the OP's choice, I like that drawing. But it's more of a Bruce Wayne body.

I just hope he's already in the gym working towards it. I don't know what specific goal they have set for him to reach, but I'm pretty certain he's not in Superman shape.

His no where near the Superman shape from what I can see, he got ripped and cut for the immortals but that isn’t a Superman Physique but a Spiderman one.

Hes bigger than Spiderman, but he isn't in Superman type shape. He'll kinda have his work cut out for him, because of how Captain America & Thor both look there is kinda some pressure that Superman be in as good shape.. & Ryan Reynolds is pretty big/cut for Green Lantern.

I don't think he'll have the time to look as big as Welling or Routh, adding that amount of mass is something that works best if it is done gradually.. that being said Chris Evans was about the same size as Henry Cavill was in Fantastic Four & Immortals.. so if he can get big quick, then Cavill should be able to do the same.

No Chris Evans had more definition in the FF films, Cavill is cut in the Immortals but that's about it nothing more. He isnít big and doesnít have a lot of mass, hell his regime for the immortals probably consisted of a high intensity cardio work out followed by high rep low weigh training and a strict diet.

As for the costume I hope they go classic. The obvious choice would be go more 'modern' or updated. They tried to do that in Returns and look what happened there!

I hope they just have it look expensive and classic. They can make it modern but make the shield look huge on his chest.

Cavill is going to need to work out alot in the coming months. He looks pretty trim already but Superman is BUFF. He will need to be at least the same size as Chris Evans in Captain America.

I don't think Cavill should get super big. As long as it's noticeable in the suit as well with his shirt off, that's good enough. He does have to blend in and look normal as mild-mannered Clark Kent, although I'm sure some slightly oversized clothing can do that as well.

Chris Evans' build for C.A. is about right for Superman. I would like a shield bigger than the superboy one that Routh got saddled with, but please no giant Alex Ross shield on a barrel chest. Not a fan of Alex Ross's old man looking Supes.

I for one think he is BIG already. Bigger than Chris Reeve, thats for sure. Reeve was very thin in the first Superman except the last half. Cavill will be better in 4 months, I'm sure.

I like Hemsworth's build honestly, but I don't foresee Cavill getting that big in the amount of time he has. Evans physique would work just as well though.

He's gonna look amazing by the time shooting starts. No question. He has an excellent frame and size to start with. Working with some of the best trainers money can buy for four or five months... pssh forget it. His physicality will be locked down.

If Cavill wants to bulk up in his home country he should hire Dorian Yates to help get him into shape.

Sure in 4 months he would not be at risk of getting too big, but if he wants to maximize the muscle he can add in such a short amount of time, well lets just say Yates knows a thing or two about adding muscle.

Here is Yates back in his prime:

^Whoa. SuperMike you seem to be pretty knowledgeable in this area, what type of physique do you think Cavill will be able to achieve?

Well there is no fear that he would end up getting too big within 4 months.

He could be eating a perfect bodybuilding diet, working with a world class coach (someone like Yates), and pulling out all the stops including doctor supervised "stuff" he could pack on a very solid 30 pounds, on his 6'1" frame, and that would look very muscular.

He would Not be able to get so big he looks like a Gorilla as Clark.

I do think he can get so big he would turn heads with his shirt off, and people would say "did you get a look at that dude! He was Jacked!".

He has, what, 16 weeks or 18 weeks?

look at the amount of time on some of these transformations... if you go on a bodybuilding program and bodybuilding routine snyder knows its possible and he knows who to turn to...

(Notice also these guys were in bad shape before they started also)
4 months...

these guys were not starting out in shape and got pretty big in a hurry... for a movie actors do this all the time, if a guy can go online and find a bunch of these stories, of course anyone making a movie knows its possible and knows exactly what to do... he'll probably have him work with a bodybuilder, like charles poliquin http://www.charlespoliquin.com/ who is probably the best strength and fitness coach there is and he knows how to prepare athletes from olympians who need strength and speed to bodybuilders who only need size... im sure snyder knows who to turn to

Those guys also did not have access to world class bodybuilders for coaches, or the extra "stuff" doctors can, and routinely do for actors (cash speaks all languages) prescribe.

I know that Superman is supposed to be big and muscular ( and is traditionally drawn that way ).

but, I wouldn't mind if he were just a bit leaner. It does make a bit more sense for his body to be a bit sleeker to be more aerodynamic ( not that it really matters anyways........lol ).

I don't expect him to be gigantic, but he should at least be big enough to look good in tights.

I don't think Superman needs to be so large he can't fit in with normal people...he is supposed to hide himself. If he's the biggest dude in Metropolis, that pretty much gives it away that he's Superman

That is also where I draw the line.

I won't say a specific weight, but essentially he should be as muscular as possible, without crossing that line into looking like a Gorilla as Clark.

Even shirtless he should look as strong as one can get, without crossing that line.
