But you gotta admit Stamp did wonders for the character back in 1981. Zod was nothing before that man took the role.

So, in that regard I'm understandably wary. But one could make the same argument about Nicholson and Ledger. I have plenty of faith.
This is what I show to anyone who's not familiar with Michael Shannon:

Except that we know for a fact Cavill is 6'1 (185 cm) just like how we know for a fact Tom Cruise is 5'7 (170 cm).

I maintain that the lack of action wasn't SR's biggest problem. It was a problem though. When I say lack of action, I mean lack of a physical showdown between Supes and a villian. You can't just have your Superhero lifting heavy things and expect to make tons of cash from the GA. There should be a balance of your Superhero saving people and facing a physical threat. I have no idea how much action there is in the new film but one thing is forsure, it's action involving a Supervillian is 100% above SR's because SR didn't have that. On that level it has way more of the action the GA likes to see in a Superhero flick.

Mostly I hope the characters aren't unlikable douchebags this time and that the plot isn't a disaster.

I don't go into million dollar movies putting my own limitations on them, because it's a good way to be disappointed.

The third trailer cleared any mystery I did have about the look of the film, and the look of the origin story, I'm sold, June 14th is right around the corner!

Yeah, who ever thought Cruise was 6'0"? Cruise has 22 years on me so I am really asking.

And Cavill looks tall enough to me, I have no idea what his exact height is but he looks taller than Tom Cruise.

+1
I already know Zack has the action down
What's most important to me is that the story and the pacing are good.
I want MOS to flow. I don't want Mos to have a strong opening, and then the next 30-40 mins kinda drag on a little ( like Rises *cough cough*)
I really hope a strong script and Nolan's supervision led Snyder to really focus on the characters and story, instead of the visuals.

Yeah, pretty much same here instead my worst fear is being kicked out for the smell coming from my DO NOT ENTER region. I'm afraid my bowels are going to release the second the opening-credits start from excitement and I'll be shown the exit before the movie even begins. That, right there, is TOTAL FEAR.

Cavill is tall enough to be Superman.



Here is a photo from "Immortals" screening, here Henry Cavill is with Luke Evans (who is 6' 0") and Kellen Lutz (who is 6' 1").

Cavill's height is somewhere between 6' 0.5" to 6' 1" (IMO.) and that is good enough, with some camera angle tricks and height increasing shoes and CGI effects, he can be made to look a bit more taller in the movie.

Claim that Cavill is 5' 10 " is ridiculous.

I know right, and he said 5'10" at best, implying that Cavill was possibly even shorter than 5'10"

^ I'm barely getting into Superman but is it like some unspoken thing that any actor playing Supes should be PAST 6'1"? Or are people just complaining that that's not tall enough?

In comics, Superman is supposed to be 6' 3".

Now, actor Chris Reeve was tall at 6' 4".

Dean Cain was at 6' 0" and then Tom Welling was at 6' 3".

Brandon Routh was also at 6' 3".

So, Superman is expected to be at minimum 6', which is why Matthew Bomer (5' 11") did not get huge support, though he has looks for the part.

Ah thanks so much for the info.
So 6'1" is okay! Especially if there's already been actor that was shorter.

Had no idea that Matt Bomer was in the picture. Guess I never realized he had the look 'til you said.

Biggest fear is that I won't be able to contain all of my nerdy emotions during the film. I'm a huge Star Trek fan and I teared up a little watching the latest movie. As soon as we left the theater my wife was like. "Were you seriously crying?" lol

I'm an even bigger Supes fan so I might have a meltdown.
