Maybe Henry Cavill will prove me wrong. Look at all the different actors who played Batman.
With Batman it was the story and directing that sold it. And the solid acting by the villans and leads. I'm referring to the Christopher Nolan Batman movies of course.
Same thing happened with the Bond films IMHO. Daniel Craig I thought before I saw Casino Royale looked very UN-Bond. More a baddie. Than "Bond". But again, he made the last few bonds work. Aided by good direction and writing. I just enjoyed the new approach taken to the recent Bond flicks. Putting aside the fact that Craig doesn't look like "Bond".
As far as Superman goes the last Superman looked the part as well. Brandon Routh. I guess he didn't want the role again fearing another flop. I think there's a "Superman look" that IMHO only Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh had. Henry for me, as I said, just looks like some muscular dude in a Superman suit. Remember Nick Cage was offered the role in years past (Superman Lives)? LOL!! Talking about miscasting... I would have seen it for a few laughs. Edited by BDD888 - 6/5/13 at 9:25pm
