Haha, I've known chicks who actually specify they want a guy that is 6'2 or taller. 6' even? Get the **** outta town, she says.

I'm just under 5'1 I really don't care if a dude is under 6'0. Hell 5'9 is tall to me.

Basketball/volleyball groupies?

Fact is, on screen, doesn't matter how tall he is in real life. They'll make him look important. Tom Hardy is 2 inches shorter than Christian Bale but he certainly didn't look small when Bane was giving Batman the beatdown in the sewers.

Yeah, the man can't fly, move planets, shoot fire out of his eyes or bounce bullets off of his chest..... but his HEIGHT is clearly an issue worth discussing. God knows you can't play Superman if you're only 6 feet.

This schtick is getting old. I know we're all nerds here, but come on. The obsession over every tiny detail is just.... ugh.

Well, that trailer cements it for me: He was born to play Superman. Like someone said: Pitch perfect.

The actual tone of his voice actually reminds me a bit of Routh, but in delivery both more natural and with more presence. He sounds great. Though I prefer the take they used in the CC trailer.

Why get built then for a role if we are going to ignore height why not the same for other physical attributes? I did initially have a problem with the height thing but everything is looking amazing for me to actually care just as long as his stats in the film still have him as 6,3 its all good.

I really wish and hope Man of Steel will give Henry Cavill the big break he deserves, put him on the map so everybody knows who he is.

Henry had that 'Great Wall' project at WB until it fell through due to budget reasons.

Oh, I didn't hear about that falling through. Can't say I'm disappointed.

I've personally heard this from a girl, she is quite tall, I'd say around 5'8" and she would not consider going out with a guy who is under 6'
Just as well I was not hitting on her as I am only 5'5"

Ahahaha this is just jealous because they know they will never be a Cavill, which is why they have to get cranky about something, people have to get on with your life, stop being petty just because the actor is visually perfect for this role! ! Height does not matter see the example of Tom hardy he is very small guy, and for me he was Bane and possibly the best villain of 2012!

Lol @ the height complaints. If you're watching the trailer and noticing he's 4 inches shy of 6'4" the whole time, you're doing it wrong.

WOW the reaction on the new trailer is awesome! However I am worried about some sites voicing that we are getting another "moody" "emo" "sad" superman, even though we know he fights and gets tough.
