4. Christopher Reeve Vs. Henry Cavill – Superman
Looks is not the only thing that win, we learnt it from Christopher Reeve’s acting as Superman. He didn’t exactly look like the “man of steel”. But it is not arguable that he took the acting very seriously and as results the first 2 films in the series have been raised to status of classics. Funny note, even today when people mention Superman, Christopher Reeve is the first thing that comes up to their mind.
Henry Cavill, the actor who played Superman in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, appeared in trailers to be the Superman we always wanted. He had the manly and muscular appearance to really be called “man of steel”. Sadly, the movie itself was a huge failure. Herny Cavill couldn’t get to the acting level where Christopher Reeve was.
