This.

And George Reeves was my favorite Superman. I loved those bounding landings he made. I heard he used a trampoline to behind the scenes for his takeoff and landing shots.

I miss him so. Rest in peace George.

Not to sound too "fanboy," but I really hope his hair falls into the curl at some point in the film.

I'm betting Snyder will make it seem accidental.

IMO you're only emo if you complain at length about how hard your life is without doing anything about it. Clearly no superhero falls under this category.

It's okay to be emo sometimes. But evetually you have to move on, otherwise you become a whiner. Because life can move on even if your life together with someone doesn't.. but it takes time for sure.

Or maybe I'm from a tall family?

Cavill speaks 9 languages. Really hope Man of Steel takes advantage of that! Would be awesome to see Superman talking with people all over the world in their language.

I'd be down for that, I'm not really too fussed if they leave the curl out but if it were to be something he adopted then that would be cool. Maybe it coud happen in a similar way to this

Henry doesn't speak nine languages He speaks English, French, Italian, and German

That would be really cool if they capitalize on that and do a montage where Superman flies all over the world and speaks to people in different languages. One thing that I think they should show is how intelligent Superman is, and how respectful he is of other people's cultures.

Odd that they don't mention Bale. He started the trend.

He is too damn small.

Reeve was 6-4 (193 cm)
Welling is 6-3 (191 cm)

Cavill is barely 6-1 (more like 6-0 / 185 cm)

He doesn't look that much taller than Diane Lane (Ma Kent)!!!
Dude is too tiny!


Tom Welling should have been casted!

Nobody cares unless it was badly noticeable.. which it isn't. 6'1 is still well above the average height of an American. He won't be looking short unless he is standing next to someone that is 6'4/6'5.

Also Batman/Bruce Wayne is usually drawn as being a similar height to Superman in comics & according to Google Superman is usually billed at being around 6'3 & Batman as being 6'2. Christian Bale is 183cm, which is essentially 6ft on the button & nobody cares because he doesn't look short on screen in comparison to the cast around him.. AND because he was a good Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Wolverine is another example, he is supposedly very short & is usually billed (according to Google) as 5'4 or in & around that region.. yet he is being played by Hugh Jackman who is 6'2/6'3.

In my opinion Tom Welling should have been cast for the previous rejuvenation of the Superman character on the big screen in 2005/2006 & Smallville should have been wrapped up at that point. His ship sailed for playing Superman in anything other than Smallville once Brandon Routh landed the role. However every cloud & all, because he didn't get the role he avoided going into Superman Returns which was failure & ended up having more success on TV staying with Smallville.

Henry Cavill will do just fine.
