Agreed. I thought Arnold Schwarzenegger was 6"3-6"4 for many years as they always portrayed him as huge in films, but he doesn't look much more than a 5"10 or so in reality.

Although I will admit, Joe Manganiello is claimed as 6"5 and I'd fully believe it, he's a BIG dude. He was one of my top choices for the new Batman actor. Chris Hemsworth and Channing Tatum don't normally look small next to other guys...

Jeez I have never seen Hemsworth look small but Manganiello is owning him! If Manganiello had won the role of Batman, it would have been poetic justice because he was runner-up to Cavill for Superman!

But had he got this role, this thread would have been meaningless as the dude pretty much has the best physique in Hollywood.

It all depends on the angle from where the pictures were taken.
Here are better pictures to compare their heights

Owning him in what sense? and I thought we left that word back in 2005

Manganiello can't act his way out of a paper bag.

Indeed. I don't believe in casting actors based on physique alone.

cavill is probably between 5'11" 1/2 - 6.0" 1/4, depending on the day. Just look up pictures of him with 5'11" kellan lutz. doesn't look much taller than him and definately doesn't tower him by a couple of inches. He is also shorter than kevin costner.

Except that he's 6'1"

Depending on the day? Does he shrink in the rain or something?

He and Costner look like the same height.

He's standing closer to the camera too. Makes him seem taller

cavill has advantage of standing closer to the camera and is still noticeably
shorter than costner.

Noticeably? Not really. Costner does have a large noggin though. They look pretty much the same in terms of height. And who knows what kind of shoes each is wearing.


And Henry's taller than Lutz (who's height is often listed as 6' to 6'1 by the way, rather than 5'11):



I think you're just being paranoid or have an axe to grind or something.

I've noticed that there are quite a few people with an axe to grind. I have no idea exactly how tall Cavill is because I unfortunately haven't gotten close enough to measure his height but his height is fine for Superman. If you wanted a 6'4" actor in the role tough cookies because Cavill is Superman.

People act like Cavill is a midget or something. It's so bizarre. 6'1'' is actually pretty tall. I could see throwing a fit if he was 5'7'' or something, but when he's only missing 2 bloody inches and looks exactly like the character in every other way...why make a stink?

And if Batman is taller than Superman? Whatever! It's not the end of the world because Superman still looks like a big, powerful guy just like in the comics.

There are many things I want them to focus on in this movie rather than those two inches Cavill is missing.

Is it wrong that I want one shot where Bats looks genuinely taller, like this fan poster?

^ It wouldn't bother me. Ben is taller. That's how it is. I expect a shot like this if they want to sell batman as intimidating.
