    Quote:
    Dynamism is employed to keep the hero/heroine bigger than life. This becomes clear when you see photos of the actors/actresses in costume between scenes, just hanging around, zero dynamism. They look like cosplayers because ultimately that's what they are.


The only exception was Christopher Reeve. Even in set photos, he looked like Superman walked out of the comic books. He's simply had that Neal Adams iconic realism that made "verisimilitude" work.

This was no mere cos-player like today's superhero actors! He was very special.
