    the hair means nothing anymore. even if an actor is receeding or losing it.

    Hugh laurie - House partial wig
    Christopher reeve - Superman III /IV wig
    Sean Connery - James Bond Series -Wig

    i wouldn't worry at all.

    Was Christopher Reeve losing his hair in Superman III/ IV?

    If anybody from WB / Snyder's camp is reading the posts on this forum, please change the look of Henry Cavill as Superman in the movie (man of Steel), give Cavill's Superman a spit curl, It is not too late to change that look.

    Many Superman fans will be happy with the traditional spit curl look instead of slicked back look.

    If they are filming Smallville/West Africa first, they can't cut his hair yet. The longer hair down in his face is going to help him look younger. When he arrives in Metropolis, he will probably have his hair shorter.

    He suffered with allopetia. But he had a reaction to the hair dye.

    Allopetia is different. Reeve's hairline was fine, but he was slowly losing patches of hair; and he hid that very well by combing over the affected areas. When he was much older, he just decided to shave it all off though.

    They should have updated his hair. Maybe given him a crew cut or maybe even a Bon Jovi and styled facial hair.

    Again, Superman has clearly been known to have a slightly receding hairline in the comics, as shown in these images below:

    Still, if what you say is true (that HC's hair may continue to recede a bit over the next couple of years), then perhaps Amy Adams' finicky detractors will find some comfort in the fact that Lois and Clark's age difference will be even less noticeable on screen as a result.

    That's the Young Clark Kent hairstyle I think he will cut it when they start filming in Vancouver (Daily Planet).

    Using kryptonite to weaken him so they can give a hair cut.

    I could be wrong but I was under the impression that they will be filming in Chicago, not Vancouver

    The receeding hairline in the comics works because the way Superman is drawn --- the distance from his eyebrows to the hairline is short and the forehead area is smaller than the cheek areas (great example are the Jim Lee drawings). The point is that it's all about the arrangement that comprise the face wherein Cavill's forehead is more prominent now that it was years ago. Couple of years more he will look like he's balding from the front :( Well, they're actors and are well able to afford hair transplant plugs ;)

    You don't know that for sure. As others have said, it all depends on his genes, diet, etc. And if this kind of thing really bothers people THAT MUCH, they should refrain from watching films with actual human beings (who are obviously prone to all manner of flaws).

    Further, my point was simply that Superman is sometimes depicted as having a receding hairline. Why it "works" in the comics is not my concern.

    Bottom line: HC still has plenty of hair. Instead of worrying about the future, let's focus on the present. Can we give the hairline thing a rest now?

    The are obviously filming the Smallville scenes first, and although filming the scenes with the most special effects first would also be a good idea, its possible that for the rest of the sets to come together that the could be filming the Smallville scenes first. That allows Henry Cavill to continue to workout and get bigger, which is nothing new, Scorcese did that with DeNiro for Cape Fear and Raging Bull.


    The hair is probably kept long for that reason. The Smallville scenes are filmed first. A longer haircut, with hair on his face, etc, helps to round out and soften his features enough to make him appear like a high school kid. In fact, I would assume that while he is still in West Africa, he will have the long hair. He probably will not be sporting the shorter "manlier" haircut until he arrives at Metropolis. That is just what I am guessing.

    I apologize if someone else has posted this before. It's hard to keep track all the posts in most of the threads about MOS.

    I just realized something after looking at the Orchard Community pics and the [BLACKOUT]tornado scene[/BLACKOUT] pics. The reason Cavill's hair looks weird/puffy on the fist costume pic is because he still had long hair and it was pulled back. As you have all noticed his hair length is similar to Tom Welling's when he played Clark Kent in Smallville. Cavill's hair hasn't been cut yet, so after realizing this I'm sure his hairstyle will look different when production begins shooting the Superman/Metropolis Clark Kent scenes.

    Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing. The "promo shot" was essentially taken while he had his hair grown out for young Clark. Older Clark will surely have shorter hair.
