But the character you're referencing was a New Yorker. From Queens. That accent was very appropriate, and not remotely overdone, imo.

I agree, it fit with Spidey, plus he was exaggerating the accent for comedic purposes.

Man Of Steel was filmed in the U.S and Canada with most the cast and crew being American which will probably make it easier for him to do a American accent as he would of been hearing it all day long. I'm sure people on set would of said if his accent wasn't good enough as well.
To be honest, Cavill's accent in Cold Light of Day was pretty much horrible throughout. It wasn't as if he was good for the most part and had some slight cracks. It's inconsistent throughout and never really sounded good.

Wow, your reading comprehension and argumentation skills really need work. Have I made a single post complaining about Oldman's accent slips or saying that they ruined anything for me personally? Furthermore, because I pointed out actual flaws in your response to Excelsior, you insult me personally because only a "sad" person or someone "only in it to cry about everything" would remark about such things? Watch the personal attacks. They are the last resort of someone without a legitimate counterargument.

Was just watching the Red Carpet bit of the Baftas tonight and the presenter mentioned Henry (referring to his as Superman ) as he is joint presenting an award.

Just thought i'd mention that, didn't know if it was common knowledge

I didn't think much of it either, but I wonder if having listened to him talk so many times and getting used to his British accent isn't a factor in me not buying his American one as natural, but as an effort. I fear it's gonna be a problem for my appreciation of his performance in MOS, since I've probably seen more footage of him in interviews as Cavill the person than as a character in film or TV.

That pose does look like that most commonly used Alex Ross Superman picture.

Carano looked great when she was younger.





She's put on some weight since taking these pictures though, and it's changed her appearance.

And if your post had actually said 'Personally I don't find her attractive, but fair play to him and I know a lot of people think she's gorgeous', no one would be face palming...
