Did you ever meet Henry Cavill? Apparently, he also tried out for Superman Returns…
I met Henry extremely briefly at Comic-Con four years ago, in the hallway, as we were crossing paths. We just said hello and congratulations. He would know better than I would if he tested for the McG project? I think he might have tested for that? I don't know if he tested for Bryan's film or not. I've heard rumors that it was between us for that, but I don't know how close he was on that in the end. But I didn't expect to see him at Comic-Con, so we literally got ten seconds of shaking hands and saying hello. He's a physically impressive dude! He fits the role well, just even in that. Seeing him in person, it was startling to me how much he looks like Christopher Reeve in a different way than I do. I don't think Henry and I look much alike, but he shares one quality with Chris, and I share a separate quality with Chris.
Well, we're a different body type. I'm taller than Henry. I'm ectomorphic. I have a long frame, a long torso. I'm not sure if Chris did or not, but I have more of a swimmer's body, so weight looks different on me. And I gained about 25 pounds of muscle, and weighed about 225 pounds during the movie. Chris was taller than me. He was 6'4".
How tall are you?
I'm 6'2 ½".
Not by much, he's not taller than you!
[Laughs] I met Chris' sons, and they're tall, too.
Yes, he is pretty honest, it's what he looks in person.

This is not a height-related comment, but here are my rankings of which performances I liked the most to least for both of the characters:
Batman - Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton/Val Kilmer, Adam West, George Clooney
Superman - Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, George Reeves, Brandon Routh, Henry Cavill

Average Height of the Supermen is 6'1.75" (187 cm) which is 1.25 inches (4 cm) shorter than Superman's listed height of 6'3" (191 cm) in the comics.

Also, surprised at the half inch downgrade for Reeve. He could look a good 2 inches over Gene Hackman, although maybe a bit less over Morgan Freeman in Street Smart.

Unsurprisingly the Superman guys average taller than the Batman guys, but at around 6'2" and 6'0" at a median they average 2 inches shorter than their comic book counterparts.

Yeah, Rob, why not the 5'10.75"? I actually think Clooney can look more 5'10.25"-5'10.5" a lot.
[Editor Rob: it's fixed now.]
