And it's not just about the physicality of the role.
Superman has to be acted well. Welling can't act his way out of a paper bag.
That's why he gets no work, bro. Stuck on a terrible teen soap opera for ten years.
Superman isn't just about being a big dude, in great shape. You have to be regal, noble, etc
yeah but image is such a big deal imo. the past supermans didn't fit the role very well and their acting was nothing to be impressed by ether. we need a good actor, director and sizable budget.
i'm very glad chris nolan is involved though. dark knight has been veyr good.
