Very tall? I wouldnt say very... It's pretty tall I guess but not very. Very tall would be a guy like 6'6" maybe even 6'5" and up. Henry is a good height but he'll look bigger on screen i think. I used to be a hard ass that supes should be 6'3"-6'4" only. But with how strong he looks and with how great his face is I've definitely got over it.

Amy Adams is also 5'5,so you could share clothes



You are the same height as Allison Mack,Kate Bosworth,Anna Paquin,Parker Posey,Eliza Dushku,Emma Caulfield,Kirsten Dunst,Sienna Miller,Alicia Silverstone,Demi Moore,Kate Mulgrew and Rachel McAdams,and one inch taller than Scarlett Johansson,J.K.Rowling is 5'5,Lucy Pinder,Jessica Ennis and Victoria Pendleton are 5'5 too.

Ashley Greene is 5'5,and also Chloe (hit girl) Moretz who is actually 5'4,but is apparently still growing...the glorious Evangeline Lilly is also 5'5

You are the same height as Takeshi Tikano,James Cagney,Charlie Chaplin,Harry Houdini and Whoopi Goldberg,however you are not as tall as Adolf Hitler or Tom Cruise.

You are the same height as Lindsay Lohan,Selena Gomez,Miley Cyrus,Demi Lovato,Rebecca Black and Joe Pesci.

See,good things do come in small packages!

Hmm,that saying sounds wrong somehow.

Hope I have not offended you BH/HHH

Well, had a chance to hear him say a couple lines in the trailer, and I think he does a decent job. Reeve and Routh level basically.

I enjoyed the trailer, Henry's acting was never a concern for me. I'm glad it's finally here, though. I need to watch it again when not sneaking peaks on my laptop at work lol

He sounded pitch perfect in the trailer to me, sounded like Superman no doubt about it.

Thanks for this!!!

I figure I might as well get to know who these young actors are since they will likely have more lines then Routh did in the entirety of Returns.

But seriously, I'm glad Clark is going to be a fully fleshed out character this time. Who says people can't relate to Superman now days ? won't be many naysayers after this movie comes out, if the trailer is any indicator.

Im one of those people who don't mind them showing the origins over again. We get to see more of Clarks personality that way; and in what way Kent's affected that.

I'm curious to see if he is at all similar to Clark from Smallville.
Wellings Clark seems to have this underlying self hate. It's like he loves other humans, no matter what, but hates himself for not being human himself. Almost like he feels like an imposter. I think he hated being a Kryptonian and always wanted to be human so he could finally stop hating himself.

This could all be because of Jor-Els stupid and very unclear savior destiny he planned for his son. It was vague at best and constantly misinterpreted. Oh Smallville....loved that show but some parts drove me bonkers!

What do you consider tall if you think you're short.

The younger Clarks don't look like Cavill. But still, looks promising!

Have you looked them up individually? There's actually a decent resemblance, although it's a little hard to tell from this trailer.

If he actually is 6'2 and really thinks that way, he may have a borderline body dysmorphic disorder. No healthy person considers 6'2 to be "short". By that logic, people who are a couple of inches taller would be considered average; and we know that 6'4 is definitely not average.

Np, personally I hope they get Dylan Sprayberry to come back in maybe not the sequel (if it gets one) but the third film (again if it gets one) as Conner Kent/Superboy
