    Just wanted to see a full listing (with pics) of all the people Brandon is said to look like at this point.

    Besides Christopher Reeve I have heard people say Tom Cruise and that dude from the Gremlins Zach Galligan :p

    I always thought that Tom Cruise looked the part of Superman....but Routh also has a little Keanu in him...

    I was thinking that too. And not just the face, but the build too. Maybe that's the dynamic Singer was going for in his movie too-- the idea of an average looking guy who has amazing superpowers and can kick some serious ass. It's much more fun to watch someone like Keanu can take on a room full of bad guys versus someone built like Arnold or The Rock.

    I am baffled at why people want a normal looking Superman. The concept of SUPERman seems to escape them.

    Probably because those same people realize that the qualities that make him Super do not include his size.

    So we're just going to forget the 70+ years in which Supes has been shown as a big person? A slim Superman is going against the public image of Superman.

    Depends on what you define as big. My ideal Superman is the Curt Swan Superman, who is nowhere near as big as O'Hearn. Reeve, at his heaviest in Superman IV, looks most like that version of the character.

    It's not like Superman has been one set size. Tim Sale's Superman is quite different from Swan's which is different from McGuinness'. Even the original Seigel & Shuster version is quite smaller than other incarnations. Which exactly do you go with?

    Here he looks like Chris Reeve

    Then here he looks like Peter Gallagher

    ...basically, the man's a damn chameleon, which is perfect for the role he's playing, because now when I look at him I see Clark Kent and Superman. :up:

    I go with the fact they are all BIG.

    It really doesn't matter how big he is. As long as you can look at him and think "Wow, he is a big guy" it's fine with me. Well, until you start thinking "Jesus christ I bet he can't touch his neck"

    I think this term is relative when it comes to comic book heroes. I've seen Superman drawn about the same size as Batman and Green Lantern and I haven't thought any different about him or his powers.

    Eh. Size never mattered to me. It's not what I immediately think of when I think of the character. In the JLA, Superman seemed to be of pretty average size compared to everyone else. But again, these are all comic characters with overstylized physiques. I don't really hold them to the same standard I expect of people in reality.

    But he is *still* big.


    Well the fact is your view goes against the norm. Especially post-Bale. When most people think of Superman they think big. Back when Superman was being cast, the requirements for a good Superman were:

    -Chisled features.

    -Height.

    -BIG. Or the ability to be big.

    It's good you like a small Superman. That way you won't be disappointed on June 30th.

    Compared to what exactly? When every other person around him is built similarly to him, does that really make him big?

    Seems that people also really wanted Jim Caviezel and Henry Cavill, not exactly BIG actors. Sure, they have the ability to BE big but that doesn't mean that they would get the size that you would prefer Superman to be.
