Of course you're right - it's just that it was worrisome to some to see Ben the way he was a few months back (even though he wasn't bad even then). His fuller face during the award season really made his head look big comparatively and then his body just didn't look up to Bats standards...but as you said, he's proven in the past that he does what it takes to get into shape for his roles. Non of the fans here should worry about his look for this film. Now, some would argue that his acting is the more crucial point of concern, but I think he's gonna kill it!

Henry Cavill's physique is still more impressive to me. He has the more extreme V-shape with his massively wide shoulders and comparatively tiny waist. No biggie. He's a decade younger and has been training longer, so he should have the better body.

Still with the height thing??? Seriously, you'd think Ben was a foot taller than Henry (it's only 3 inches, guys! Not much!)

Plus, there's camera angles that can alter your perception of one's height.

Personally, I don't care what any one says outside of people connected to the film, but my suspicion is that the Superman suit has some kind of lifts in them in the boots. So... No worries about the two looking comic accurate when standing next to one another. And yes... It's really not that huge a difference.

Yes.

But, Batman is SUPPOSED to look intimidating. I'm sure they will have the proper boxes for Henry to stand on...

In my book Affleck is 6'3... Each site has different heigh on him.
Cavill is 6'1 and Affleck is 6'3-6'4. And it doesn't matter. If Snyder wants, he's gonna make both the same height.

Intimidation is not all by heigh. It's by physique, heigh and presence of the actor.

It doesn't bother me that Affleck is taller than Cavill anymore than it bothered me that Hardy was shorter than Bale or that Jackman was taller than Marsden.

His face still looks chubby. He looked so much bigger in The Town, I was hoping we could see that physique again but doesn't look possible atm.

Your yes was for all the post or only to say that Shannon towered Cavill? If yes... then
I was agreeing with the angles/movie tricks part....but geez you guys are touchy about anything that may insinuate even a mi-nute negative insinuation about Cavill.

Affleck being taller is a fact, period. Batman looking far more "Beastly" than Superman should be okay to everyone. It's part of his gimmick.

Each one has his own physique. period.
I think that is because some just want to look for smth to complain about Cavills persona no matter if it's nonsensical and really doesn't matter as you've said.
The height will not matter. Snyder is the one who decides how each hero are gonna look.

Maybe he's supposed to be? He's an older Batman; maybe they're going for a Night Owl analog.
