The two prominent complaints on these boards are: 1. The suit. 2. The muscle. Any underwhelming presences caused by these 'problems' in Superman pictures, are blamed on: 1. The Costume Designer 2. Singer not telling Routh to bulk up. Is it really the fault of them, or is it someone else? Is it.. ..Routh? I'm no Wellingite. I supported Routh when he was cast. Whenever I disliked something in this movie, I never blamed Routh. Until now. We're all familiar with this picture. It flared up the argument on Routh's size, because this picture shows Routh as being very skinny, while other pictures show Reeve size. I saw this manip: Kudos to who made it. This manip is, obviously, just Reeve pasted on Routh's body. And look at the difference. The suit doesn't look so bad. He doesn't look so small. It appears that it is the actor that determines how things appear, not the suit, or his actual size. And Routh doesn't create the same impression. Will he surpass Reeve? Not likely, going by these pictures. Routh still needs to show us if he can handle the Man of Steel. He has the voice, but does he have the rest?
