And as I pointed out much earlier in the thread, Christopher Reeve was a "scrawny beanpole" when he auditioned for the part. The thing about muscle is that you can always gain more of it.
And how much do you actually need to play Superman? Yes you want him to be toned and fit and pretty beefy but he's Super-powered, he's not able to throw cars in the air because he's a steroids freak.
Physiques in comics have become totally freakish. The average drawing of a male superhero by Jim Lee has a thigh as big around as my waist. It's all just moved into the realm of stupid.
