He look 6'0.75" with 6'1 Kevin Costner.
Jordan87 said on 14/Aug/17
Based on more Recent Pics of him, 5'11 is a bit too low. Don't let his stocky Appearance fool you. He is comfortably above average height.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 12/Aug/17
He's over 6'0" for sure. 6'0.65". Can pull of an easy 6'1" at times.
Jordan87 said on 11/Aug/17
AGree on the height part.
Yeah I know for Sh!tsake when I saw Man Of Steel the Females in the audience ( Of all ages mind you) were voicing their Opinions on Mr. Cavill's appearance quite strongly.
Jake said on 11/Aug/17
I'm pretty sure he's only 5'11".

Henry Cavill is the DC Extended Universe's version of Chris Evans...and vice versa.Both are classically handsome men with all the aesthetic features of their respective characters i.e. eye color,physiques,hair color e.t.c EXCEPT height.
Captain America is 6'2 Chris Evans is a weak 6'0
Superman is 6'3 Henry Cavill is a weak 6'1
Mark(5'9.5") said on 9/Aug/17
That's absolutely fine, Rob! A mm alone than just complicated to notice. Half a mm, you would have to zoom your eyes in to even attempt to notice it!
said on 8/Aug/17
184.2 cm is really 6'0.51".
In this case 6ft 0.5 is 184.15, so if you show 184.1 or 184.2, both are half a mm away from the exact metric equivalent of 72.5 inches...I think half a mm at worse is ok 😅
James said on 7/Aug/17
6' 0.5"= 184.15
Should 184.15 be rounded up to 184.2 or rounded down to 184.1?
Mark(5'9.5 said on 7/Aug/17
Cavill doesn't fall under 184 cm. I'm surprised that Rob decided to add the 184.2 cm for Cavill which is right on the money, but 6'0.75" or 6'0.65" are both arguable too.
Jordan87 said on 7/Aug/17
I'd say that is possible, kind how I pegged it. Based on Recent pics I think he is around 6'0.5 most of the day. Out of bed height lasts.....not too long. Thing is for a guy over 6 feet he doesn't have a long Frame. Short Arms and wide Shoulders. I have a friend who is 5'11.25" and has a naturally lean frame weighed around 165 pounds, small head and gangly arms. I would bet 9/10 people would guess him taller than a guy like Henry after meeting him. Of course In person he would be shorter, but I can say different builds certainly affect what height a person gives off.
For Example at times I think Gwendoline Christie is barely 6'3 but due to her small head and very high eye level I think she would look a 6'4" man in the eye.
Tom said on 7/Aug/17
strong 185 in the morning and then 183.5 at night
The Man said on 6/Aug/17
yes my thoughts exactly
said on 4/Aug/17
How tall do you think Cavill is out of bed?
Editor Rob: he's probably going to clear 6ft 1 comfortably...maybe on his best day nearly 6ft 1.5
Jordan87 said on 3/Aug/17
Are you referring to Even's Pic he Posted of Cavill and Amell? To Me shoes don't matter in that pic, Henry could gain height with his posture with Amell and actually come out to be taller.
HE is hunching over and turning his head, picture him standing with Equal Posture to Stephen's and he would be around the height of the 6'0.5 Stephen, possibly taller.
said on 2/Aug/17
Mark and Jordan
Cavill's shoes from that pic. Comic Con 2012.
Joe said on 31/Jul/17
I think Cavill is 6'1" when he wakes up in the morning, almost everyone loses some height by the time they go to bed in the evening, usually about half an inch, so Cavill must be around 6'0.5" tall in the evening.
Rory said on 31/Jul/17
I was ready to say Cavill is 6'0.75 but then I saw a picture of him with David Gandy who I've seen up close and isn't really above 6ft2 and he's actually looking down at Cavill which stopped me in my tracks. It's true Cavill definitely looks taller than 6ft range guys though like Dan Stevens,Miles Teller,Luke Evans,Chris evans and possibly even Kellan Lutz. It's a hard one with Cavill, is he a 6'0.75 guy or is he just a 6'0.5 guy who stands well and pulls off nearer 6'1 ? Who knows. He can look anywhere from 6ft to 6ft1.5 really. I think Rob would have to meet him really to conclude whether he was 184 or 185, I don't think we can go definitive until then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/17
I think he could possibly be scraping that mark after a good nights rest
said on 31/Jul/17
Cavill can give a 6'1" impression in this photo below.
The only reason why he can be preserved as shorter is 'only' due to his short arms. However, when you really see Cavill with other people (especially with Shaquille O'Neal, Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Mark Strong, Kellan Lutz (who he edged out), Armie Hammer, and Jason Momoa) he can really give a 6'1" or even a 6'2" impression.
Jordan87 said on 31/Jul/17
I guess that would work but from what I understand your " Out of Bed" height doesn't really last long. I remember Rob did something about it way back. I always figured your actual height was what you are around 1 to 2 in the afternoon, least that's how I take mine.
I think someone like Gandolfini having that Frame would prolly lose 3/4-1" from his morning height to the Late hrs of the night. He was 265 pounds for most of the SOpranos seasons, and around 280-285 in the later ones.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 28/Jul/17
He actually meant like 'out of bed' heights.
said on 28/Jul/17
Rob how does he appear in this latest photo barefoot posted on his instagram?
Editor Rob: in photos like that, it's harder to really say - a 6 foot or 6ft 1 guy can look a lot different depending on bulk and frame width...sometimes they are guessed shorter.
Jordan87 said on 27/Jul/17
While I do think he can Appear in occasion over 6'1, I don't think at any point in the day he is as high as 6'1.5"
Mark(5'9.5 said on 27/Jul/17
Rob, do you think a case for 6'0.75" could be made for Cavill at times or would you not go that high?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
186.9cm out of bed
said on 26/Jul/17
Not to mention that Cavill may have had some lighter footwear.
Actually, he can stand eye to eye with Kevin costner in 'some' shots.
Heck, how does this guy manage to not look shorter than 6'1.5" Mark Strong? Maybe camera angle and more footwear? Doesn't look under 184 cm.
Jordan87 said on 26/Jul/17
Same pic we posted, I agree there Henry Def. Losing some height with Amell.
Thing is Mark, we may differ on is I think Amell is 6'0.5, not 6'1 with Rob. However I do think there is a chance Cavill is actually taller than Stephen ( only very slightly). Not only is he hunching but his head isn't straight either with Stephen.
said on 25/Jul/17
Actually, Cavill was leaning more. Stephen was standing very straight.
Any thoughts Rob?
said on 25/Jul/17
If you are referring to this Picture below, I think Henry has the weaker posture and if he straightened his head out a little bit to match Amell's they would be more or less equal. Stephen Amell is See as 6'0.5"( With Rob He isn't a full 6'1).
Ten said on 24/Jul/17
He is noticeably shorter than 6'1" Stephen Amell.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 24/Jul/17
He is already an excellent Superman in Man of Steel. I'm sure he'll be the Superman that we will love in 'Justice League.'

Jordan87 said on 19/Jul/17
Mark ( 5'9.5"),
Yeah he seems like a decent guy in his Interviews. Christopher Reeve was as well and it shows in the role. Superman is supposed to be pretty much all good. Henry's is a little more Brutal, but in Man Of Steel they clearly showed him trying to settle the conflict with that idiot at the bar without Violence multiple times. That's what Superman is about, he is not Violent by nature and It think Henry does give off a good vibe as Superman. I would have liked Dawn of Justice to Flow a little better. I thought it could have been a better film and i Hope they do not waste Henry in the Superman Role, b/c he is very good for it.
said on 18/Jul/17
There is a claim where he says he's 'over six feet.' I'm not sure if he's talking about himself for being 'over six feet.'
Minor Note: The good thing is, he doesn't use his money for himself and rather would like buy dinner and drinks for everyone and like people to be cared for.
Jordan87 said on 18/Jul/17
He can give a 6'1 plus impression sometimes. I wonder what height he actually has claimed, he doesn't seem the type of fella to inflate his height. For Shitsake the females would likely still ooze over him if he was 5', 5'10, 6'3 whatever so I doubt he would need to inflate his height claim like guys like Affleck and Lundgren.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 17/Jul/17
Basically, that would mean Cavill can give a '6'2" impression' for some reason. Shows how tall a solid 184 cm/weak 185 cm person is.
Also, He looks already tall in his comic book movies.
said on 17/Jul/17
Rob, out of curiosity, how tall do you think Cavil is with Ray Fisher (Who you both meet and didn't think he was over 6'3".)
(I'm not counting Momoa nor Affleck because they're not standing at their tallest)
(With Cavill tilting down and Fisher facing more straight. I'm not counting Affleck because he's not standing at his fullest.)
Editor Rob: he only looks an inch smaller, but as he is closer to the camera and the camera is low, Cavill is gaining some height. Hopefully there are more side to side shots of these guys in the future.
said on 17/Jul/17
If the man is 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 he can easily report a 6'1. I mean think about all the guys that are 5'10 and say they 6'0 or even 6'1. I know it's ridiculous. I have a friend who I happen to know is not more than 5'10.5 maybe 5'11 and he says 6'1.
A 6'0.5 or 6'0.75" guy is a 6'1 in my Book. As In if I were that height ( 6'0.5 even), I would say 6'1 when asked. Or " About 6'1".
I get that we want to be specific to the 1/4 on this site, I was more interested in Cavill b/c there are plenty of pics where he looks 6'1, others I thought he looked closer to 6'0 but the last batch of Pics Mark threw out showed that he can vary in height with different people at different angles.
I had him at 6'0 Initially, Now He looks 6'0.5 or 6'0.75" in some of the other ones With Hammer. So 1" or even 3/4" is enough for me to Debate over. 1/4", Not so much b/c that's not as easy as people think to nail down.
Currently I think:
Cavil 6'0.5 ( Solid)
Affleck 6'2" ( Solid- At times He can look shorter or taller but 6'2 is the go to height for him though I doubt he is taller than 6'2.
Ray Fisher ( 6'3"?- Rob Mentioned Fisher barely hit the 6'3 Mark and could be a shade shorter)
Jason Momoa ( Its hard- doesn't look 6'4 with Rob on this site. Sometimes has Affleck by 1.5", Sometimes looks barly taller. He also drops height alot in his pics to meet the shorter person next to him)
Mark(5'9.5 said on 17/Jul/17
6'1" isn't a stretch, but he would measure over 6'1" flat in the morning. 6'0.75" is more like it.
Jordan87 said on 16/Jul/17
Yeah a lot of the justice league pics are harder to judge. So times cavil looks aflecks height, sometimes allfeck looks momoa' height.
Shannon said on 16/Jul/17
I say he is 6'1" , but since u guys won't agree I'll say 6' 0 3/4"
Mark(5'9.5") said on 15/Jul/17
Agreed! At least we know one picture that isn't in a favored angle and they're lined up straight!
Jordan87 said on 14/Jul/17
The last Picture you posted the one you mentioned is the best one Henry stands 2.5" Above Hammer's Eye Level(With his Hair) . Armie remember has a 6'0 Eye level in his Mugshot which would mean it's actually 5'11ish take away his shoes b/c im sure he was not barefoot in his Booking Photo.
So to me, Yeah this Photo would be good to make a Case of Henry being over 6' tall no doubt. So I see it has : Hammer's Eye Level 5'11 + 2.5 - Henries Hair ( .75"-1" ?) which gives him about 6'0.5, And yes Possibly 6'0.75".
Good FInd My Friend.
said on 13/Jul/17
At 2:29 in this video, Cavill is standing quite tall with Hammer.
Sonnecker said on 13/Jul/17
Clearly Cavill cannot be under 184 cm...maybe 185 in my opinion, and the evidences are all in his public photos.
His height is around that, and it's more clear than many others....
said on 13/Jul/17
Actually, Cavill does comfortably come over Armie Hammer's eyelevel. (In that one picture, Armie does have a footwear advantage most of their pictures.)
This is them with equal footwear and normal posture.
(with Cavill tilting up a bit.)
(Weird photo again.)
(Even with camera angle favored, how does he manage to pull off looking tall here.)
This is the only good picture that Cavill and Hammer are standing normal without some weird camera angle:
I really think 6'0.75" would suit better.
Jordan87 said on 13/Jul/17
Jack, no. There is plenty of evidence that points to him not being 6'1". If you think 6'0.5 is ridiculous then I'd advise browsing through some pictures here on site. It's not hard. When you make a statement like that, try to post some back up, pics, comparisons etc. it's not hard you can do it .
Jug said on 12/Jul/17
He's six feet tall and Affleck is 6'2. With camera angles they can easily look the same height on screen.
Jack said on 12/Jul/17
He's 100% 6'1 anything under that Is rediculous!
said on 11/Jul/17
Here is a good Shot. If Anything Armie is Leaning. Look at the mug shot pic. Armie has a 6'0 Eye Level ( 5'11 without his shoes- He had shoes in his mug shot im pretty sure.)
Henry is an inch Above Armie's Eye level, no more than that. Puts him around the 6' Mark.
Jordan87 said on 10/Jul/17
Correct , even I myself have said he can pull off 6'1. Don't feel I am always arguing with you. Half the time I can't decide myself so I need to go mono e mono to point out other opinions.
Momoa eye level is like 5'11 from robs picture on the height chart there. Sometimes Henry looks comfortably 6'0.75 and other time I feel he looks only 6'0. I haven't yet decided myself my friend. Its not as easy as people think to narrow a guy down from pics.
If rob had a pic with him it would be tons easier of course bc we know robs exact height.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 10/Jul/17
I remember Rob mentioned that Cavill did pull off appearing near 6'1" with Momoa in a clip of the justice league comic con than just 6'0". Keep in mind, Cavill isn't standing straight at his fullest nor Momoa with Cavill at a disadvantage (for the first two pictures), he's still easily above Momoa's eye level and Cavill also look like he had less than 1 cm footwear at that day while Momoa had no more than a 1/4 inch footwear advantage.
Jordan87 said on 9/Jul/17
Some of those momoa pics are from bad angles but if you look at the pic you posted of Henry and momoa standing straight looking at each other ( not the one where they are hugging - bad pic) you will see Henry comes an inch over momoa' eyelevel which is 6'0 In Jason's pic with rob. Just look at the height chart that rob provides , then look at the pic you actually posted.
You just brought to my attention that we can use pics of Henry and momoa and compare them to robs pic with momoa and can get Henry's height in the height hart.
Right now looks about 6'0, try to find better pics of them .
Mark(5'9.5") said on 8/Jul/17
Him under 6'0" would mean that Kellan Lutz and Luke Evans are no taller than 5'11".
In fact, with Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jai Courtney, Will Smith, Armie Hammer, and Ben Affleck, Cavill is closer to 6'1" than 6'0".
Ben said on 8/Jul/17
He look over most people's heads in Batman V Superman and Man of Steel, He has just been surrounded by very tall people like 6'2.5" Ben Affleck and 6'3.5" Michael Shannon.
He does give off a tall impression but not like Reeve or Routh.
Jordan87 said on 7/Jul/17
I would not say he is totally wrong for Superman but I would say he does not give off a tall impression like Reeve Did, or Routh for that Matter.
Keep in Mind I have posted Pics where Henry looks under 6'0, than in other pics he looks like he is heading very near 6'1".
I think the best pics to Judge by are pics where Henry is pictured next to people who have pictures with Rob( Proving their height to an extent). Little weirdo Jessie Eisenberg is a good one to use. Henry Looked over 6' in most pics with Eisenberg ( Who sucked as Luthor By the way). In a couple he looked 5'11 but most with Jessie he looks 6'0-6'1.
Ben said on 7/Jul/17
Rob, I agree. I always follow these guys who trains to become a male superhero like Chris Evans, Hugh Jackman, Henry Cavill etc. Their diet and workout schemes are insane. I can recommend Spideyfit on YouTube and Instagram, he's 5'10", 170lbs (Exact same stats as comic book Spider-Man) and he his very ripped and also has an insane body and he goes through everything he do to get into "Spideyfit" plus he's vegan.
They eat like, 6-10 meals per day and workout 4 hours (In the morning and one later on) per day and get atleast 9 hours of sleep every night. They do this for about 6 months and if they have a scene where they have to be shirtless then they workout even harder and a few days before the shooting they are not allowed to drink anything cuz water will make your look swollen.
They have the mass building period where they have to eat really really really much to gain more mass and then after those months they have to get lean and reduce all that extra fat to muscle. And before they workout they drink something to increase their metabolism to help them gain muscles.
Dmeyer said on 7/Jul/17
6 FT 0 3/8 IS Closer than 6 FT 0 5/8
Joey said on 7/Jul/17
He might be able to pull of a strong 6'1" in the morning and 6'1.75" at late afternoon.
said on 6/Jul/17
I think an actor has to be atleast 6'1" to play Superman since in the comics he has always been 6'3" so I kinda agree with you. I've always imagined Clark Kent to be a very tall and clumsy guy. Christopher pulled that off perfectly.
But Henry has an insane body, to think people used to call him "Fat Cavill" in school...
And for Batman you have to be atleast 6', he's supposed to be a big and intiminating guy. Keaton was the only one who got away cuz he did a great job.
Editor Rob: Cavil put in the effort to bulk up for Superman.
I know there are always rumours on other forums about what 'help' some actors get to become quite muscular....but there are a healthy amount who are all natural, well natural + protein-related supplements.
Joshua3 said on 6/Jul/17
No way he is even 6' totally wrong for superman, the muscles really don't make up for the lack of height.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 28/Jun/17
Rob, basically if you were doing 1/8ths, would 6'0.65" maybe fit the bill for Cavill?
said on 28/Jun/17

Editor Rob: yes a good fit.
Logan Corry said on 26/Jun/17
Hey rob do you think the talk about him having a short arm span is possible especially for his height i've seen pictures of him behind the scenes and his arms look very short compared to his height what do you think also what would you say his wingspan is?
Nik said on 26/Jun/17
I think that 6'0.5" is about right.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 23/Jun/17
He's closer to 6'1" than 6'0" in most cases.
said on 22/Jun/17
Now here Cavill looks a solid 6'1 next to Eisenberg's 5'7. This is a different Event the the pics I posted. Maybe Eisenberg being a little Dwarf Wore lifts at the First Event and Forgot to wear them at this one?
Rob would have noticed him wearing suspect shoes when he took a pic with him on this site. That being Said Cavill has around 5.5 to 6" Inches on him in this pic, so 6'1 would make sense at least in this one.
said on 22/Jun/17
Jessie Eisenberg is 5'7" with Rob pictured on this site. Cavill is no way 6" Taller. Looks around 5".
I'm am Starting to Doubt 6'0.5" Very Much. Why? I'm going by Eisenberg who is proven at 5'7 on this site, 6'4 Listed Gracie looking 4" Taller, and of Course Armie's 5'11"-6'0" Eye Level shown in a Mug shot next to a Height chart being around Henrie's height.
Henry Looks 6'0 With Gracie, 5'11 to 6'1 with Armie, and 6'0 with Eisenberg.
I think he is closer to 6'0 than 6'1. Sorry FOlks, I used to think this Dude was a little taller. I know he looks tall at times but I am posting pics of Heights of Fellow celebs he meets that we can actually go by b/c they have booking photos or pictures with Rob.
This of course doesn't mean I think there is a Better Superman actor out there right now, b/c I don't.
Also a Side note Henry is by far the most jacked Actor to don the suit, which I think is more Important.
said on 22/Jun/17
With 6'4 Listed Roger Gracie. Cavill is around 4" Shorter. Both Barefoot and equal Posture.
Now MMA orgs always over list their fighters, but I think Roger Gracie's 6'4 Listing is accurate.
Gracie 6'4, Cavill 6'0.25".
said on 21/Jun/17
Check this Out. In The Mug Shot Armie's Eye Level is 6'0 even ( In his In Shoes by the way so I don't want to hear I am undercutting his height here. He eyelevel is 6'0 at the most) . Now Look at the Pic of Henry and Armie on even ground with Footwear Visible. Top of Henry's head is at Hammer's Eye Level without his hair which would be 5'11 without shoes which blows my Mind. HOWEVER.....
Now look at the 3rd Pic. Henry's head is around 2" higher than the 5'11 Mark of Armie's eyes making him 6'1.
This is the reason I think Cavill range is a very acceptable 6'0 to 6'1. There are times he is lucky to look 6'0 like with Grace which everyone forgot about conveniently. Then there are times he can stand up pretty well to a tall guy like Affleck.
I don't think this man wears lifts b/c he could get laid in a Lesbian Only Club so I doubt this is the case.
I can tell you one thing, he ain't no 5'11 and I doubt he makes 6'1 either.
Jordan87 said on 21/Jun/17
Get pictures if you can otherwise it's still speculation. Good idea to bring your friend however. My guess is if your friend is a solid 6'0-7/8 ( 6'1") he will look down on Henry slightly . Henry should come in at about 6'0.25-6'0.5 I think depending on the time of day.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 21/Jun/17
It's in a week and a half. I'm also bringing a friend who I measured at 6'0 7/8" 7 hours out of bed, with him being curious as to how he compares in height with Henry Cavill since he always thought that Henry Cavill was 6'4". He was surprised when he saw that he's listed on here as being 6'0 1/2", with the general census being that he's anywhere from 6'0 1/2"-6'1". It will really make his day if he's just a fraction taller.
said on 20/Jun/17
6'0" flat is underselling Cavill. That would mean Kellan Lutz is 5'11.75" and Mark Strong 6'0.75" along with Bill Nighy 6'0" since a very young Cavill appeared taller than an "old" Bill Nighy. (Peak Bill Nighy would measure taller than Cavill now.)
Mark(5'9.25") said on 20/Jun/17
Celebheight 6'1.5" out of curiosity, did you get to see Cavill during the summer or the comic con hasn't happened yet?
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 19/Jun/17
While I wasn't fond of the movie, he did a great job in Immortals. It felt like him, Kellan Lutz, Luke Evans and Mickey Rourke were actually trying to make the average scripts seem lively. I do occasionally go back to watching it just to see their performance. My ratings for the DC movies:
Man of Steel-8.5/10
Batman versus Superman-6/10-It wasn't that bad.
S.J.H said on 19/Jun/17
I can buy 6'0 for Cavill
Dmeyer said on 19/Jun/17
This Guy is tricky he can look 6 FT flat 183cm but can look 6 FT 0,75 185cm
Mark(5'9.25") said on 15/Jun/17
Agreed with Peter. Cavill does great service as Superman. Ben Affleck was badass as Batman. Gal gadot did terrific as Wonder Woman (though the movie itself is slightly overrated, but not as super terrible as Frozen overrated.)
I would stick by 6'0.65" since Rob did mentioned that he would be the same mark as John Cena in 1/8ths.
Peter175 said on 14/Jun/17
Brandon was much taller but I don't think he has that convicted warrior face that Cavill has to play the hero of heroes. That said Cavill's acting isn't bad too me either, I think he does a great job filling the superman aesthetic looks wise aside from the balding (not trying to be offensive but looking at superman's receeded hairline is distracting lol. 6ft0.5 is more than enough to be superman in hollywood height isnt the problem. If he were 5'11 flat, yeah it'd be a problem but we have shoe lifts and camera tricks.
Affleck did an admirable Job as the cape crusader, but I think they could have found a better actress to fit the wonder woman character looks wise and in domineer. In the comics she isn't suppose to be youthful, girly and childlike, she's a strong convicted warrior who usually makes the right decisions. Gal looks and acts too childish/girlish to me but in the WW film I think they did a good job , not like her in the comics but it was still interesting and made the movie very enjoyable, seeing her with a human side. Esseinberg as Lex was a strange choice, but I think he was one of stronger points of film along with Affleck as Bruce wayne
My ratings of the DCEU films
Suicide Squad 6.5
BvS dawn of justice 6
Man of Steel 8
Wonder Woman 7.5
I'm a bit of a Comic nerd so I at least can appreciate that as flawed as the DC films have been thus far, they are enjoyable and to me fit the comic aesthetic and style a lot better than Marvel's films. Granted Marvels are league better in terms of production, acting, design, pacing but they often feel more like a futuristic action movie to me than something based on a comic. I also prefer the darker tone of DC
Anyway, Cavill is a genuine 6ft.5-1 guy. This is his low imo
Jordan87 said on 12/Jun/17
Cavill isn't exactly Tom Hanks, but the reasons I don't think Man OF Steel is a great movie is not b/c of Cavill's acting. Its b/c Michael Shannon's super bad overacting. Also Man Of Steel, Cavill was good, Lex Luthor Jr? Disgusting portrayal of a Great Comic Book Villain. Affleck was good a Batman, Cavil passable as Superman, Gal excellent as Wonder Woman in my honest Opinion.
If you want really bad acting and bad dialogue watch Hayden in the SW Prequels. Good Christ I remember rows of people in the Movie theater snickering at Hayden and Natalie trying to convince us they were in love.
My Question speaking of Hayden is who would be taller if Hayden and Cavill came face to face? Hayden always Looked AROUND 4 Taller than 5'8.5 Ian McDiarmidd.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/17
I find Cavill's acting and real-life personality quite bland to be perfectly honest...
Mark(5'9.25 said on 10/Jun/17
Brandon Routh's superman was more super stalker and a dead beat dad who erased Lois' memories.
Henry Cavill's Superman was more real and grounded. His pain yells and anger rages are solid on point. He does speak more like Superman than Routh's Superman.
Allie said on 10/Jun/17
Eh Gal did really well as WW. Since English isn't her first language, I'd say that if she had a more American accent that more people could see she is actually a decent actress. Henry does a servicable job as Superman. I like Ben as Batman though.
shiva 181 cms said on 9/Jun/17
Affleck suited better as a batman than cavill as superman
Imo cavill is short for being superman also his acting skills are average too , brandon routh or tom welling would beat cavill any day. Dont know why they hired cavill when brandon routh was very good as superman
said on 9/Jun/17
Rob, do you consider him to be a big and tall guy or upper average?
Editor Rob: I'd class Cavill as comfortably within the tall range, although not a very tall guy of course.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/17
183.5cm is low-balling him, IMO...
Jordan87 said on 8/Jun/17
Gal Looks taller b.c of his slimmer frame. She is actually a good deal shorter than Caville if they were on Even Footing.
I enjoyed Wonder Woman more that I thought I would. DCEU is....interesting. To Be honest I thought Man of Steel was mediocre. Dawn of Justice Slightly above Mediocre. Suicide Squad was crap ( No Not b/c Leto's Joker was Overhyped, I just didn't think it was that great).
I give the DCEU Movies:
Man Of Steel : 6/10
Dawn of Justice: 6.5/10
Wonder Woman: 7/10
Suicide Squad: 4.5/10
The Nolan Films:
Batman Begins - 6.5/10
Dark Knight: 8/10
Dark Knight Rises: 7/10
said on 8/Jun/17
I know this happened before, but how the h*** does Cavill not "look" shorter than Mark strong here? (I'm sure Mark Strong would measure taller than cavill.)
Allie said on 7/Jun/17
Arch, he not be the best actor out there, but he's sure pretty to look at!
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 7/Jun/17
In the Justice League photos, Henry Cavill easily appeared taller than a 176-177 CM Gal Gadot who is was likely in heels.
said on 7/Jun/17
Also, I wouldn't call Cavill a wooden actor. Here is one clip where he nails his role. Also, when you see and hear his yells/roars in his movies, he nails it too well.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 7/Jun/17
Cavill is actually a really good Superman at least more so than meets the eye. His Superman is just starting out and his story arc will be completed in the Justice League film. He did very well in M.A.N. from Uncle as Napoleon Solo.
I do like Cavill as Superman. Honestly, his Superman role in Man of Steel was slightly better than Gal Gadot's Diana Role (I do love her as Wonder Woman though and both movies were very good! It's just that some times, some people over exaggerate Wonder Woman the film like it deserves a perfect score and that people think its the 'only' DC has one good film).
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jun/17
Cavill is a wooden actor but in fairness he can look a full 6'1.
Allie said on 7/Jun/17
He looks anywhere between 183-185. I'd bet more towards 184 though.
Peter175 said on 6/Jun/17
I feel he can look anywhere from 6ft0.25 to nearly 6ft1.
Sometimes looks 2.25 inches shorter than Affleck, other times just barely over one inch.
Jordan87 said on 6/Jun/17
I wouldn't call 6'0.25 total bs. Keep in mind he looked shorter than this with Gracie. I'd say under 6'0 is crapola, but anything between 6'0 and 6'1" I'd put at fair game.
However, Bruce why don't you give us an explanation on what you just posted 6'0.25 without any pics or follow up. That's what I would call garbage, not your actual opinion.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 5/Jun/17
6'0.25" is garbage. 6'0.5" ot 6'0.75" are arguable figures.
Bruce 5'11 1/3 said on 3/Jun/17
This guy is a solid 6' 1/4

@john 6'0.125" is complete garbage for Henry. This listing is perfect in my opinion.
sumdude said on 23/May/17
This is a prime example of a very solid 184cm "at night"-man. Stands his own with Will Smith and Ben Affleck and the likes. Very good posture.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 23/May/17
@Mark, no I haven't. I probably won't meet him until this summer, unless he doesn't show up to Comic Con.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/May/17
6'0" flat is a joke already.
@Celeb Heights 6'1.5" did you manage to see him at a certain distance?
Headman said on 22/May/17
What is his head length? It's rather small, I hear. What say you?
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 22/May/17
There is the occasional photo that shows him slouching actually. Nevertheless, I'll have to practice standing up straight if he stands how he did at the Batman versus Superman premier.
John said on 21/May/17
I would say he's about 182-183.5 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/17
184/185cm zone through the day. Really does pull off a convincing 6ft1 at times with perfect posture. But be a bit of a leap to give him that listing even though 99.9% people who see him in person would probably think he's at least it if not taller!
Jordan87 said on 19/May/17
He may have good posture all the time, so may not be different with you than him standing next to another celebrity.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 18/May/17
Rob, out curiosity, what do you think of the following:
John Cena/Chris Pine (They would look too close. John Cena may possibly measure less than a mm taller due to less hair and bigger head.)
Henry Cavill/Venus Williams (Rob, who do you think would measure taller between these two?)
Jason Lewis/Chris Tucker (Not sure about these two though. Tucker may give a taller impression maybe due to less hair.)
Rafael Nadal/Chris Brown (Both are listed the same though.)
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 17/May/17
I'll be going to Comic Con this summer, so perhaps I will encounter Henry Cavill there. I wonder if he would have impeccable posture, or if he would slouch in a photo by a fan?
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 17/May/17
He had two inches on Bruce Willis.
Jordan87 said on 15/May/17
During dawn of Justice Henry weighed 203 pounds. He was around 190-195 for man of steal.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 14/May/17
He appeared 6'2 3/4"-6'3", but had 1/2" of an inch more footwear than I did. Therefore, he's around 6'2 1/4"-6'2 1/2".
SHIVA182CMS said on 13/May/17
@celeb heights; did ben affleck appear 6'2.5 to you, im surprised he's that tall he often looked just about 6'2 to me
SHIVA182CMS said on 13/May/17
@rob how much do you think he weighs he looks over buffed for super man roles
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 4/May/17
184-185 CM is tall for a man though, despite what most people think. With that being said, however, it does kind of surprise me that the average age for the females who have a crush on Henry Cavill is not 35+, lol. He looks likes a man in his mid to late 30s, so it's a bit unusual to see a lot of people under 25 fall for him.
Jordan87 said on 4/May/17
Based off what I saw in the movie theater , that doesn't shock me in the slightest.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 3/May/17
@Jordan87 the ladies are just EVERYWHERE FOR HIM! Don't get me started in my former high school where there was a bunch of fan girls of him there!
Wrs567 said on 1/May/17
Yep like Mark said 6'0.5'' or 6'0.75''
It's a coin flip
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 1/May/17
Ben Affleck: 6'2 1/4"-1/2"-He appeared to be 6'2 3/4"-6'3". However, he had half of an inch more footwear than I did as I was in Loafers (which add 1/2" of an inch of height), while he was in normal shoes (which add about an inch). Therefore, 6'2 1/2"-6'2 1/2" is more accurate.
Elizabeth Debicki: 6'1 3/4"-6'2"-She's the tallest woman that I've seen in person. Her very high eye level easily made it seem as if she was 6'3"+ to me (compared to my 5 1/4" inches eye level).
Henry Cavill- 6'0 3/4".
Jordan87 said on 1/May/17
Mark ( 5'9.25"),
Yeah and though he is listed at 6'1, being 6'0-1/2, 6'0-3/4 certainly gives him the right to claim 6'1". I mean there are many celeb cases that have celebs adding like 2" to their height.
I have a friend of mine that says he is 6'1 and he was shorter than My father who I know for a fact is not over 5'10.5".
As Far as Henry goes, He certainly doesn't need to inflate his height for the ladies. I was in the movie theater when the Man Of Steel Trailer came out, and damn you should have heard the girls in the audience every time Cavill was shown. And I mean girls from 14 years old tweens to the 50's and 60's old bats. I Still remember it, very funny.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 1/May/17
@Me could you show me a link to Kristian Harloff saying that Cavill claiming a shorter height than he is?
Mark(5'9.25") said on 1/May/17
@Jordan87 don't worry dude. I would rule out the full 6'1" easily.
Now, anywhere between 6'0.5" or 6'0.75" would work!
Jordan87 said on 1/May/17
Why does he look 4" shorter than 6'4" roger Gracie? Harloff can claims what he wants. Claims are claims , pics are pics.
Now, mma almost always inflates guys heights, yet Gracie does look a good 6'4" as they listed him. What I think is he is something like 6'4-1/2 and gets rounded down to 6'4" ( in this very rare case)
Basically what I am saying is that Roger is 6'4-1/2 and Henry is 6'0-1/2 on a good day.
I am referencing them bc the pics I posted show then both barefoot together and equal poster and there is no way cavil stands 6'1 or over.
I would love to meet cavill, dude is an excellent superman and a nice dude, not a cocky ****bag like Jared Leto, yes Leto is a dush google it, well documented.
me said on 30/Apr/17
For what it's worth, Kristian Harloff, one of the most prominent YouTube film reviewers, says Cavill is the only actor he's met who claims a shorter height.
I've never heard Harloff mention the height of any other actor except maybe Tom Cruise. He's over 6'1, and says Cavill is noticeably taller.
Anecdotally, Armie Hammer (6'5) never looks more than 2" taller...
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
@Celebheights 6'1.5" Nice!
Actually, if anyone looks at David Tennant's page (who Rob met), he did say that Cavill and Tennant can fall into a similar range like 1/4 of an inch. We could easily rule out 6'0.25".
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 30/Apr/17
I have yet to meet Henry Cavill in person, but have met a couple of actors who have been by Henry Cavill that give a somewhat good reference (Ben Affleck and Elizabeth Debicki). I bet that he would give off a taller impression to me due to his posture.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 29/Apr/17
I kinda brought it up, so everyone point their fingers at me! :P Yes, the Shaq comparison can stop now.
One of us has to meet Cavill in person. However, the best guess is 6'0.5"-'6'0.75"..
Jordan87 said on 28/Apr/17
Yep Cavill is now taller than combine measured 6'2 lesner making Henry 6'2-1/2 now right? Yep the Shaq pics need to stop, obviously.
Thanks for reconfirming my point lol. I love me some D.C. Comics but if you believe Henry is over 6'1", ..... Henry should he warned of your potential stalking to follow lol
said on 28/Apr/17
Is it just me or can Henry look taller than a 6'2'' Brock Lesnar with Shaq?
But yeah the Shaq pics have got to stop for comparing lol
said on 28/Apr/17
Here is a pic of Henry with a fan who claims to be 6'2 and Henry seems about the same height
said on 27/Apr/17
The Pics Above I posted with Gracie show Henry next to a LISTED 6'4" man ( Yes LISTED) and he appears at least 3.5-4" Shorter and they both have the same posture and are BAREFOOT.
Stop Using Shaq Pics, they both are leaning and you don't know footwear ( Unlike the Link I provided).
We have to look at Pics where he Isn't leaning or the other person pictured isn't leaning to get an accurate Estimate of Height.
People are referring to Henry's picture with Cosner when they both are leaning in different ways and dropping posture, footwear isn't even important at that point.
Again, Look at him with Gracie in the Link I provided ( Both Barefoot ) . You Guys are going to tell me Gracie is 6'5 or 6'6" when he is listed at 6'4?
I used to think Henry was 5'11- 1/2 something like that, He is clearly taller than this but I'm not going to to Full Delusional and try to list the man at 6'1- 1/2 and 6'2 b/c I am a DC Comics Fan. Logic Trumps Fanboyism.
said on 26/Apr/17
Here is Shaq by Steve Nash:
Henry Cavill definitely appears taller by Shaq than Steve Nash does.
Jordan87 said on 25/Apr/17
Henry does appear tall in some photos will tall men ( Affleck, Kline) but the comparisons with Shaq need to stop. Its hard to get an exact feel of how tall someone is next to a 7'0 man. The difference is too much.
Henry is not under 6'0, but stop with the 6'1.5" stuff. He is not over 6'1, he is under it ( By a little bit)
Mark(5'9.25") said on 25/Apr/17
Costner had Cowboy boots on while Cavill had regular dress shoes.

Costner does look taller in that photo…and Chris Meloni looks 5ft10!
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 24/Apr/17
John Cena is a legit 6'0 1/2"-6'0 3/4" in person. Both John Cena and Henry Cavill look 6'1"+ by Shaq, especially considering that Shaq is standing up straight by John, while John Cena seems to be hunched/bent over by him.
said on 22/Apr/17
Kevin is cleary taller
said on 21/Apr/17
Also, I know Momoa is slouching here, but still.
6'0" flat? Nope, not even close. 6'0.75" or 6'0.5" are the best marks for Cavill.
Cena is more than tricky. I'd give him the 6'0.75" like Cavill. I wouldn't put them below 184 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/17
I've seen Cavill look 6ft1-2 range with taller guys
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 19/Apr/17
I can't find it now, but I did see a photo of Henry Cavill by Matt Bomer. Henry Cavill appeared 186-187 CM by him.
said on 17/Apr/17
DiCaprio has Crowe by nearly an Inch. Cavill has Crowe by 3". Cavill should have 2" on Leo. If Cavill was 5'11, Dicaprio would be just 5'9 which I really doubt since he had his mugshot pictured in Wolf Of Wall Street ( In Shoes) at around 6'0 tall making at least 5'10-1/2" barefoot.
Crowe: 5'9-3/4 ( Now)
Jordan87 said on 17/Apr/17
I doubt he is under 6'0. 180cm especially to low. I have him at 183cm to 185cm.
said on 17/Apr/17
Yeah no way is Cavill under 6'0.5'', 6'0.75'' is still debatable too, he can look it.
Cena is a difficult one though, he can look as tall as Ben Affleck next to Hugh Jackson lol
Cena can look low as 184 and even over 185
Mark(5'9'25") said on 17/Apr/17
Cavill 180 cm? we would have to downgrade John Cena to that mark too along with Momoa to 6'1".
184/185 cm for Cavill.
Nick said on 17/Apr/17
between 180cm and 183cm no more.
said on 16/Apr/17
With Bradley Cooper:
It's hard to tell who is really taller there since neither have the best posture in that photo. I'd guess that they are similar.

Costner actually had cowboy boots on while Cavill has regular dress shoes.
shiva 181 cms said on 14/Apr/17
Cavill is 184 cms and no more ,this listing is perfect as it is 185 cms is a stretch for him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/17
Costner looked 186cm w/h Cavill
Jordan87 said on 14/Apr/17
Sometimes I think he could fall in the 6'0-1/4" Area myself however Lately he looks taller, Approaching 6'1" .Posture plays a Role.
Guys Its not easy to sometimes Distinguish height with a 1/2" Inch. Its really just alot of guessing. ( Unless Rob Gets a Pic with the celeb).
If you want to go by ranges, which I usually do. Henry is 6'0-6'1" IMO. Likely closer to 6'1", but a 6'0-6'1" range is far better than a 6'1-6'2" range for Cavill which is not accurate, or a 5'11 to 6'0" Range which is also not accurate IMO.
If I were a Betting man. I would put him at 6'0-1/2".
Celebheights 6.1.5 said on 14/Apr/17
Kevin Costner had a footwear advantage.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 14/Apr/17

berta said on 13/Apr/17
he can look 185 with perfect posture buuuuuuuut remmeber he was 1 cm shorter than costner at age 60+ who had worse posture and is listed 185,5 that means that he actually could be 183,7 ore something and with perfect posture look 184,5
Jordan87 said on 13/Apr/17
I agree with you On Henry's 6'0-1/2, but On Evans I am Seeing more than 1cm between them. Since this is a Henry Cavill Page, I will stick us agreeing on Henry's 6'0-1/2. Ill look at Evans More closey. He has Pics with Renner who Rob proves is onl 5'8- 1/2.
Mark ( 5'9.25)
Henry Is Most Certainly Taller than the Actors you mentioned.
said on 12/Apr/17
Rob, do you think Stephen Amell would edge out Henry?
Editor Rob: I think there is a chance yes, how much, whether 1/4 or 1/2 inch is debatable...
said on 12/Apr/17
Cavill did edge out Miles Teller, Dan Stevens, and Bill Nighy.
Rob, if Cavill claimed 6'1", could he pass for his claim?
Editor Rob: you can argue guys like Dan Stevens and Miles Teller fall into the solid 6ft - 6ft 0.25 range...but Cavill seems to clear that range...though I'm not convinced he was as tall as Callum Blue on Tudors.
said on 12/Apr/17
Chris Evans is comfortably taller than 5'11.5'' Jimmy Fallon, So there's no way he's under 6ft
Evans only looks a centimeter shorter than Cavill, so that would rightly put Cavill at 6'0.5''
Rob has got these right
said on 11/Apr/17
Cavill and Leto
said on 10/Apr/17
Mark ( 5'9.25")
I have not looked into Miles Teller's height to Much But Henry may have him 1" to 1.25". Miles has Bigger head though for being the shorter man.
I know I'm going to catch heat for this( And don't Give a Sh!t), But I think Chris Evans is 5'10.75"- 5'11ish around there, and with that being Said Henry is 6'0-1/2, Possibly 6'0-3/4 with Evans in SOME these pictures ( Which vary depending on the Angles and Stances of the two Guys)
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 7/Apr/17
From what I've seen:
He appears 6'1" by Shaq.
He's no more than 4 CM shorter than a 189 CM Ben Affleck. It could even appear to be less at times.
He appears 186-187 CM by a 179 CM Russell Crowe.
He appears to be 187 CM by a 181 CM Christopher Nolan.
He appears 185-186 CM by Chris Evans.
He's 2 CM shorter than Will Smith.
He appears to not be much shorter than a legit 6'4" Jason Mamoa.
He's 2 1/2" inches taller than a 5'11" Jamie Dornan
He's 2 CM shorter than a strong 187 CM-188 CM Elizabeth Debicki.
He's definitely closer to 6'1" than he is 6'0".
ok said on 6/Apr/17
Mark(5'9.25") said on 4/Apr/17
I think it's really the camera angles like @Jordan87 said. Cavill has good posture and can really pull off 6'0.75" like Pine and Cena. I would argue that mark for the three of them.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 3/Apr/17
It's surprising that Henry Cavill appears less than an inch shorter than in those photos, compared to how he did in the Batman versus Superman premier photos. Maybe Ben Affleck is wearing smaller shoes? Also, it looks as if Ben gained at least 25-30 pounds since I spoke with him in person.
Jordan87 said on 2/Apr/17
Henry looks taller than affleck in a couple of those. Could be the angle but that's the tallest I've seen him look to date. Affleck looks a bit bulkier than he did in the past. Could be the cut of his suit .
Momoa looks taller than the cyborg actor in those picks ( more so than in the past) .

Rob, this happened at the Justice League Cinema Con.
Edit* also a video of the cinemacon
Any thoughts on Cavill's height in these pictures, Rob?
Editor Rob: I'm still fine with the 184 range for him, he's a guy with good posture.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 30/Mar/17
It could make somebody seem taller as well as it could imply that somebody has a long torso. Henry Cavill's torso does appear to be rather long, with his legs being relatively average.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 28/Mar/17
Cavill looks 6'1" with Nicholas Hoult, Armie Hammer, Jason Momoa, and Shaquille O'Neal.
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Mar/17
Henry cavill's height is
186-186.5cms out of bed
184cms before bed
with his Strong posture he easily appears 6'1 and makes us think if he's 185cms but he'd measure no more than 184cms at his low
Jordan87 said on 27/Mar/17
Depends. If someone has long legs and Short Arms, Possibly taller. Most pics of Henry( Or most people) that we see are from the waist up, therefore I believe his short arms work against him when it comes to height. He prolly has the arms of a 5'9-5'10 Guy.
Christopher Reeve had long arms even for his height, which is why guys like that tend not to put on muscle as fast.
There are times to me Henry gave off a 5'11-6'0 impression when he is likely a bit taller then that. I have him around 6'0.25" but recently he could pull off 6'1". He is not that easiest to nail down with height.
ConorM said on 23/Mar/17
hmm.. do you think short arms would generally make him look taller or shorter though?
in person, rather than in a photo.
S.J.H said on 18/Mar/17
I don't take autograph with celebrities because i'm never a big fan person to any actors so i could only tell the truth jimmy kimmel is right infront my sight just under 180cm. But i respect your height guess for cavill but over 6'0.5 is just never happen as you can see how a 6'4 kid make michael shannon look 2-2.5cm shorter than listing and honestly cavill didn't look 3" lower than shannon that much is more likely fracture between 6.5cm range between them more i see it. Lets say shannon max 189.5cm and cavill maybe 183cm a true 6 footer and 6'0.5 can be a morning range

The thing is John Cena has most likely lost height though, from wrestling for 15 years
Here is John at 25 years old with a NFL 6'2'' measured Brock Lesnar
As you can see John was the full 6'1'' at the age of 25
A peak Cena would've easily been taller than Cavill
Today they are both around 6'0.75''

@S.J.H. Unless I see an "actual" picture of you and kimmel, i still stand by Cavill being 6'0.5" 6'0.75".
We would have to downgrade Brandon Routh to 6'1" since he and Cavill didn't look that different comparing them with Momoa.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 10/Mar/17
Mark Strong and Henry Cavill appear to be the same, yet Mark Strong seems to match or edge out Tom Hiddleston. It's weird since I don't see Henry Cavill as being the same or edging out Tom Hiddleston in a photo.

Whether you believe it or not. Jimmy kimmel is only max 179cm in real i've met him last year close up. Cavill is not as tall as you think. Michael shannon is comfirm under 190cm at 6'2.5 at most 189.5cm since the aussie 6'4 kid maybe close to 6'4.25 but no guarantee for that. Cavill maybe 5'11.5 to 5'11.75 range not quite higher

Rob, I found something interesting. If you're reading this, I wonder what your thoughts are in the comparison between Cavill and Cena.
Cavill edging out Lutz -> Click Here
Cena edging out Lutz -> Click Here
While they do look the same, Cena gave a taller impression with Lutz. However, Cavill gives a taller impression with Shaquille O'Neal than Cena did when he met Shaq.

Finally, Cavill and Cena look the same when they stood taller than Jimmy Kimmel.

I think both Cena and Cavill are arguable 184.8 people, but Cena might measure alittle taller by only a mm. What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: Cena has an advantage with Kellan, so it's tougher to tell any true difference.

Henry Cavill is 6'2" the same as Hugh jackman

i wouldn't go lower than 184cm he might be a little higher like 6ft0¾ but definately not shorter although he seems shorter than stephen amell

Rob, out of curiosity, would you argue the 183 cm/184 cm or the 184 cm/185 cm?
Editor Rob: Mark, I'm happy sticking with the middle ground, the 184ish range.
Don't think I'd go as low as 183 or as high as a full 185.

Even if Momoa stood up to his full height in that photo he'd still only be 1-2in taller. Cavill could probably be 6ft2+ in certain shoes. He's already in the tall range but I could see him maybe wanting to feel a little more formidable and not loomed over as much by guys like Jason Momoa or Michael Shannon (who also didn't look a great deal taller than him at the Man of Steel premiere).
Henry Cavill: 6ft0¾(184.8cm)
Jason Momoa: 6ft3¾(192.4cm)
Michael Shannon: 6ft3¼(191.1cm)

Peak 6'5" Michael Jordan with 7'0.25" Shaquille O'Neal
Henry Cavill with 7'0.25" Shaquille O'Neal. Cavill is looking up with his legs cross.
Edi* I'm not saying Cavill should be upgraded massively, but the 6'0" is too low let alone under it.
Wrs567 said on 21/Feb/17
Haha no way he is under 6'0'' lol
Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/17
He is taller than 5'11. Again Don't let his stubby arms fool you. Especially in the 1st Picture of Cavill and Momoa that mark Posted. Shows you why Henry would give a shorter impression. Look how damn stubby his arms are!
This Stubby arm business is not to say that I wouldn't want to be him for a week. I would be tagging 10/10 Gals instead of the standard 5's and 6's.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 20/Feb/17
Don't know where the 5'11" comes from but one would argue 6'0.25" at a absolute lowest while 6'0.5" 6'0.75" would suit better.
said on 20/Feb/17
We would have to downgrade Momoa to a weak 6'2' since he didn't look that much different with Cavill.

@Jordan87 well, there are several people who are tall that can surprisingly bench that much despite body frame saying other wise.
Like you said, we're not surprised Cavill could possibly bench more than 285 pounds.
said on 18/Feb/17
I mistook they List Just his Push Press which is 245. Now if you go some of these Ratio's, a Normal Push press of 245 means a Bench of around 285. ( Im Not Shocked if Henry could actually Bench more then this, His physique is of a natural Bencher. Short Arms and Big Chest).
Whats even more staggering ( IF TRUE) is the 6'4 Christopher ReeVe benching 320. That's hard for people with long arms, and he def has some Monkey arms.
I would still guess Cavill to be the stronger of the two, but either way Chris Reeve's was by no means a weak guy.
I was able to Get up to a bench of 310 while back in my early 20's. Trust me this is by no means Easy and took me literally yeas to get there. If Reeve's actually did 320, is quit the feat. I am by no means as tall as Reeve.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Feb/17
@Jordan87 I'm not sure. However, is there a link to this? I'm actually interested to see what the quote says if you don't mind linking the source.
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Can Someone explain to me How ( Based on Self reports) Christopher Reeve 6'4" and 215 Pounds ( reported by the End of his training for the role) bench Pressed 320 POUNDS and Cavil only did 285 ( 245 for Push Press).
Henry Cavile with his stubby Arms and thicker Build ( 6'0-6'1 203lbs) Push Pressed 245 and benched 285.
So Reeve while playing the role was physically stronger than Henry? really interesting to me.
FYI Reeve was 25 ears old when Playing the Role, Cavil in his early 30's. Human Males are naturally stronger at 25 than they are in their early 30's, but not by alot.
The Numbers could also be either Inflated or Under Stated But I would like to know if Anyone else actually believes this.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 16/Feb/17
I agree with Rampage. An Upgrade to 6'0.75" would be better since Cavill is likely closer to 185 cm. Definitely not 184 cm flat. 6'0.75" is more like it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/17
I think the 6ft0¾ is better. He really does look pull off 6ft1 range with ease
said on 13/Feb/17
Rob, how tall does Cavill look with 7'0.25" Shaquille O'Neal? The top of Cavill's head seems to be matching Shaq's chin.
Editor Rob: Mark, it depends how much Shaq might be losing in posture, that is harder to tell...but Henry can certainly look near 6ft 1 there.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 10/Feb/17
I would rule out the 6'0.75"-6'1", but the 6'0.75" boost would be better like 6'0.5"-6'0.75".
Importer said on 9/Feb/17
Cavill is closer to the camera and Strahan leaning, if there is gonna be a boost it's gonna be 6ft 0.75inch, above that not really fitted well on this site.
said on 9/Feb/17
I can see why people would think Cavill would look 6'0.75''
But the pic with Stephen Amell kind of cancels out 6'0.75'' - 6'1'' for me
Rob has a pic with Stephen Amell too
Rory said on 8/Feb/17
Yh Cavill strikes me I have to say as a solid 184cm who wishes he was taller and tries every trick in the book to make it happen...forced posture,favourable photo angles,substantial footwear possibly even lifts on occasions ? It wouldn't surprise me. I think all these little manoeuvres mean he can often be taken for 6ft 1-6ft 2 range, but I'm just not sure I see him barefoot measuring over 184cm at his low. He's a solid 6'0.5 sure, but the 6'0.75 guesses I think are more a result of his successes in looking taller...you see him at times look 187cm and think golly he looks tall here, this guy must be 6'0.75 at least...I'm not convinced. Someone like Chris Pine doesn't do any of that stuff and still gives a taller impression than Cavill Imo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Feb/17
I agree Mark. A guy less than 6ft1 CANNOT look that close to a 6ft4+ guy!
Jordan87 said on 8/Feb/17
Strahan is most certainly leaning more in that Pic Of Henry, that's a fact. If you Straighten Big Mike out there he would have Henry by nearly 4" instead of the 2.5" he has on him in the Pic.
Big Mike: 6'4" ( Now)
I formally had Henry at 5'11.75" but I do think he breaks the 6 foot mark slightly. His Arms are really short, plus he is built like a brick sh!thouse which may give a shorter Appearance.
said on 7/Feb/17
Rob, this is causing me to scratch my head, but Cavill looks almost eye to eye with 6'4.25" Michael Strahan in the video below.
Edit* A better picture with Cavill and Michael Strahan.
(Alexander Skarsgard with Strahan)
(Cavill with Strahan)
I think this listing is fine, but Cavill looks like he could also be slightly under listed.
said on 6/Feb/17
Cavill doesn't look too different from Will smith (who had a footwear advantage) and Joel Kinnaman in the suicide squad premiere.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 5/Feb/17
Still looks a big six footer with 6'4" Roger Gracie as Cavill's bald part of his head goes near the eyebrows and abit above his eye level despite the fact Roger Gracie is pushing him down a little bit.
It's similar to how John Cena and Randy Orton stand.
said on 2/Feb/17
all barefoot and the guy in the middle is 6'4, Henry looks about 6 foot
said on 1/Feb/17
I don't think he's busting a gut because he did claim he was a bit over six foot at one point. There's nothing with standing with military posture.
If he really was no more than 184 cm, then the top of his head wouldn't have reached Shaquille O'Neal's chin.
That's when he isn't standing straight.
Wrs567 said on 30/Jan/17
Henry is always busting a gut in pictures next to people
That's borderline cheating, since others are standing relaxed
It also looks ridiculous if you ask me
Standing normal he would probably be no more than 184cm
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Jan/17
Also, There's 1-2 cm between 6'1.75" Debicki and Cavill. That still puts Cavill at 184/185 cm.
My question is, how does Cavill look almost eye to eye with Jason Momoa and Ray Fischer in the Justice League Comic Con without suspicious footwear? I'm beginning to think an upgrade to 6'0.75" would be better for Cavill since he's often pulled off looking near 6'1" than just being a big six footer. 6'0.5" is fine too, but 6'0.75" could be a maybe better listing.
said on 29/Jan/17
Here's a better picture.
Cavill still goes above Hammer's eye level and they're all in the same line without having to be closer to the camera.
HonestSlovene said on 27/Jan/17
@grizz Thanks for those pictures, it ruines everything over the current listing for Cavill.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 27/Jan/17
@grizz Armie Hammer and Debecki were closer to the camera and Debicki had high heels but would still measure 6'1.75" without them.

I laugh how he tries to be at its tallest with everyone, even when that's downright ridiculous. Click Here
Like here I mean, look at him and Vikander next to Hammer and Debicki Click Here
Alicia and Henry look like children next to them.
said on 27/Jan/17
This photo seems to be slightly more accurate:
Considering her footwear, there seems to be 1-2 CM between Henry Cavill and a 6'1 3/4" Elizabeth Debicki.
Ror said on 26/Jan/17
Cavill 6'1 at midnight is a bit silly isn't it....even midday that is highly contentious.
tejaswi sharma said on 26/Jan/17
6'0.5 to 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/17
Actually...he looks almost the same height as Jason!
6ft0⅞-6ft1 lowest at midnight
Mark(5'9.25 said on 24/Jan/17
@Celebheights 6'1.5" Debecki was wearing flats in that photo though Cavill has regular dress shoes. However, I would still stand that 184 cm - 185 cm for Cavill really. I don't think he really dips under 6'0.5" If so, it's barely noticeable. I do agree with you that 6'0.75" would be a better listing.
berta said on 23/Jan/17
perfect posture but still little shorter than costner. he is probably 184 and can look 185 beause of his posture. but chances are bigger that he is 185 than 183
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 21/Jan/17
Despite the fact that I do believe that Jason Momoa is a solid 6'4" (especially since Rob has met him, with him confirming that he is 6'4"), he hasn't been appearing as tall lately for some odd reason. Maybe his posture has gotten worse? Elizabeth Debicki is a strong 187 CM in person, so it's weird seeing Henry Cavill match her height (especially since she might be in heels).
said on 19/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene I ruled out 6'0" for Cavill who tends to look 6'0.75" than say 6'0" low. If he was 6'0", a lot of celebrities would need a downgrade. They are other photos with cavill and other celebrities that suggest Cavill can be nearer 6'1".
He barely look shorter that 6'3.75"-6'4" Jason Momoa.
He looks similar to 6'1.5" Elizabeth Debecki.
And somehow, Cavill pulls off looking a bit taller than 6'1" Bill Nighy and 6'1.5" Mark Strong.
Cavill edges out 6'0.25" Lutz going by both their eye levels and their heads.
While 6'1" Costner has 1 cm on Cavill, Cavill has managed to pull off looking "barely" taller than Costner on only "two" occasions.
To put an end to the 6'0" flat average, here is Cavill easily coming above 6'4.5"-6'4.75" Armie Hammer's eyelevel (Armie has looked similar to Calvin Harris and Joe Manganiello in several photos not to mention he edged out the Winklevoss Twins.)
For better reference about Armie Hammer, here's him looking similar to Joe Mangeniello and Calvin Harris and Hammer beating out the Winklevoss Twins in height.
This still puts Cavill at nearer 6'1" since a 6'0" low person can't look that tall with other people.
HonestSlovene said on 18/Jan/17
I'd say 6'0"-6'0.5"/183-184 cm is the general range he looks next to 187.5-188.5 cm /6'1.75"-6'2.25" Aflleck. It's a typical case of how a strong 6'0" looks next to a legit 6'2". If he was close to 6'1", then Affleck would be 6'2.25"-6'2.5" but he never looked that tall (look at him with pictures next to Matt Damon where he looks 4-4.5 inches taller and Matt isn't more than 5'9.5"-5'9.75" as well as pictures with Morgan Freeman arond 15 years ago at Sum Of All f+Fears premiere who was 6'2.25" peak height, 6'1" flat now in later years and he looks barely an inch taller).
Mark(5'9.25") said on 17/Jan/17
@Rampage I don't how Cavill can look that close with Jason Momoa, but a 6'0" flat person can't look that tall.
I still think an upgrade to 6'0.75" is better.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/17
He looks only 1-2in shorter than Jason Momoa!
Wrs567 said on 15/Jan/17
Cavill looks 6'0.5'' - 6'0.75'' to me from everything that I've seen
Very similar range to what John Cena is today
But I do think Cena will edge him out because he can look more 6'0.75'' - 6'1''
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jan/17
@Importer Agreed. Like I said, I doubt Cavill would drop to just 6'0". I'd say he's a good solid 184 cm person and would measure 6'0.75" without question.
Mitchell said on 13/Jan/17
He looks a full 6'1", nearly 6'1.5" in most pictures but I could be that he's got a great posture. I'm giving you a generous guess anyway.
Importer said on 13/Jan/17
I got nothing against the listing, the guy is as tall as me, but have to agree majority of the time aflek is in vans these days when he wears casuals, so Cavill would look 0.5 inch taller than this listing. When they both wear same footwear I can see 4-5 cm difference.
said on 12/Jan/17
He can look a full 6'1" with Affleck. Heck, I do not know how Cavill manages to look virtually 6'2" - 6'3" with Jason Momoa.
Even Cavill's footwear isn't suspicious at all!
The more I see Cavill, the more I'm convinced he's underlisted. If anything, the chances of Cavill dropping to 6'0" is just zero outright.
Importer said on 12/Jan/17
those dress shoes/ boots cavil is wearing, I got the exact thing in black it is a full inch, a tad bigger than normal dress shoes that give like 0.5/0.75 heel. Vans give about 0.5, just to expand my last comment
Importer said on 12/Jan/17
..Cavil is wearing dress shoes, Aflek is in vans. Cavil has like 3/4 of an inch advantage?
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Jan/17
I think a 6'0.75" listing would be better, And Cavill has pulled off looking that with Armie Hammer, Will Smith, Elizabeth debecki and Jason Momoa.
@Matt he clears full 6'1" in the morning, but I wouldn't give him that listing, but 6'0.75" would be better.
Rory said on 12/Jan/17
Yh Cavill can look at least 6ft 1 in those pics, I think generally speaking though I'd say when measured Affleck would have easily 1.5 inches on Cavill.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 12/Jan/17
There are several pictures that Cavill had an edge on Costner and Costner had an edge on Cavill. I would say Costner still has the edge because he had less hair. Otherwise, their eye level's are the same.
said on 11/Jan/17
I wouldn't give Henry anything below 1,85 mts. The height difference between 1,90 Ben Affleck and Henry is so minimal I can't believe he's more than 4-5cm shorter (Click Here
& Click Here
). I think you should at least give Henry a 1,85 height (I could argue for more but that seems to be fair).
