    Doesn't matter either way to me. If he's bad, he's bad. If he's good, he's good. If the movie doesn't do well, they'll make another one eventually. If it does well, they will make it sooner.

    My left brain will think he's terrible and my right brain will think he's great.

    What really astounds me is that some actually believe Henry's performance alone will decide if the movie is good or not.

    Cavill's track record doesn't inspire alot of confidence (memorable for one role) but I don't place much trust on what critics say. If he's at least on ScarJo's or Chris Evans' level, then that'll suffice for me.

    We haven't heard him say even a single line of dialogue yet. (narration and voice -over in trailer does not count.) :o

    I think the voice in the trailer was dialogue talking to Lois.

    I'll be fine if he is as decent as Routh. He can gradually improve on the sequels.

    I think the important thing to take away is that the consensus for the film is that it is a great film ie good reactions. That itself means that holistically all elements are good. the reaction to henry's performance was a side note, it wasnt as if it was the first thing said. somebody directly asked about his performance and that twitter guy replied, but it wasnt as if he wrote straight off the bat that henry dragged the film down. I think the fact that the reaction to the film (speculation so far) is fantastic means all elements work. There's no way henry is terrible and the film still can be called great. A terrible performance leaves a sour taste in the viewers mouth and taints the whole movie.

    Well, being the lead actor in multiple tricky roles, you gotta admit there's something about it.

    I'm not saying his acting abilities won't have significant impact, whether positively or negatively. I'm just shocked at how some reacted to it, I remember someone even entertaining the thought of not watching the film at all regardless if the film was good if Cavill wasn't up to snuff. :dry:

    Yeah, not watching it at all for that possible reason alone is stupid. Thankfully we're hearing different stuff, and I cant imagine Cavill being worse than in Immortals in which he was fine.

    It's not true that someone expressed that opinion?

    Or is he suggesting the he can actually definitively decide whether someone's opinion is wrong or right... :rolleyes:

    Bloody hell are people still worrying about Cavill cause of what one person said? I mean come on it wasn't even news I didn't read it on any websites bar these forums. Cavill will be fine.

    Now don't make assumptions, he may be fine to you, but doesn't mean he'll be fine for another person.

    But this film has to be PERFECT!

    Not one person should be having a remotely unenthusiastic respone to ANY aspect of the film!

    Here's to hoping that we start getting a influx of things starting next week since the MOS FB page said that Warner Bros. will kick off their promotion during March.
