But 2 things are still driving me crazy. Cavill simply isn't tall enough. Supes should be 6'3 to 6'5. Just my opinion.

Second the no split curl is just annoying the hell out of me. I know Synder wanted to be different and totally ignore the Donner universe but Superman's height is important and the split curl is iconic. Superman without it is like Darth Vader without the breathing, Batman without his utility belt, Ferraris without gasoline engines, the yankess without pinstripes. Its something iconic that makes his recognizeable.

It just aint right!!!!!!!!!!! Anybody else bothered by these 2 things?
2 inches shouldn't really be anything to complain about. You won't even be able to tell the difference between a 6'1 male and a 6'3 male on the big screen. You're acting like they casted Tom cruise or something.

It's a British thing. We seriously have an alcohol problem as a nation. I think a lot of guys see 'can handle her drink' as a plus when looking for a g/f.

Yeah I don't get it either. Unless they are noticably short, I won't notice it on the big screen.

And that said, I don't think i've ever seen a Tom Cruise flick and thought 'man he looks well short'.

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
