Henry Cavill Rocking The Super Suit On 'Batman v Superman' Set

Click for HQ

We had just gotten a first look at Henry on the Batman v Superman set a few days ago, but this tops it x 1000!

MTV has shared this picture of Henry in his updated Superman suit on the downtown Detroit set of the film. We had seen the new suit in the first official still released by Warner Bros. last month, but nothing like seeing Henry wearing it on set!

More from the Daily Mail below. And don't miss TMZ talking about the new pics on their show (we liked the first 30 seconds or so anyway).

The images are all over the internet, being shared by sites like EOnline, TMZ, Perez Hilton (love their post) and many more. As it should be.

As for your reaction, well..

We second that last tweet.. great incentive to help Henry reach his fundraising goal.

Way to go Superman!

More to come.

Henry Cavill Back In Michigan: First Look At Superman On Set!

It's the moment we've been waiting for since filming on Batman v Superman began, a first look at Henry in his Superman suit! -- Bananadoc captured the shots while covering the latest set in downtown Detroit. You can see them in full size at Just Jared. About time we got to see you Man of Steel, the wait was well worth it. Oh, did we mention we have a few awesome candids to share from that set? look for them later this week.  

Henry walks behind Tao Okamoto, who we're also seeing for the first time on the Batman v Superman set.

Rock Run Update, Ben Talks Batman, Henry Up For Ben-Hur?

Henry Cavill is a force to be reckoned with and you are right behind him. We have passed the $1000 (£865) mark, as we help Henry reach his fundraising target ahead of his participation in the Gibraltar Rock Run. A huge thanks to all the sites and fans who have been spreading the word about the run, that will benefit The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. We're really hoping everyone pitches in so we can reach Henry's £20,000 goal. This is his official fundraising page, and you can even leave him a message of support. We will come through for him, but we need your help. Go #TeamHenryCavill.     

Filming on Batman v Superman continues in Detroit, and this past week we got a first look at Amy Adams on set. We also heard from Batman himself, who talked to Entertainment Weekly about the outcry over his casting, and a little bit of what we can expect on the big screen:

EW: So what it’s like to portray Batman?

BEN AFFLECK: I’m right in the middle of shooting now. It’s a process that I’ll probably have better perspective on when I’m done. I can tell you that every time I do a role, it’s the responsibility of an actor to get their physical self as close to the role as possible. And Batman’s obviously got a set of expectations that are tough. So I spent a lot of time working out. And it’s a far cry from Gone Girl where my character is described as “puffy and hungover.” I want you to know I worked equally hard at both! [laughs]

It feels slightly ridiculous using the word “outcry” describing your casting. But there was actual outcry—a lot of people freaked when they heard about Batfleck. To what extent did all that get under your skin?

Before I took the role, Warner Bros. gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, “Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There’s a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions.” To me, having been through a certain amount of that, it doesn’t really… Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I wouldn’t have taken the part if I didn’t trust my instincts in terms of the filmmaking. I think Chris Terrio wrote a terrific script. Zack’s a great visual director. And there’s an interesting take. I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t think I could do it. I have the benefit of a lot of that understanding. But also, everyone is entitled to their opinion. That’s a big part of this international sport. The Fifty Shades of Grey kid or whatever it is. That’s sort of become a thing.

This tweet from The Hollywood Reporter definitely caught our attention. 

With the just announced superhero slate, you'd think Superman would be pretty busy for the next few years. But what if.. you can learn more about the project at Deadline. Even if Henry is not Ben-Hur, it's great to see he's being considered for those types of projects.. his years of hard work and perseverance paying off! 

Back to Batman v Superman, if you haven't caught the closest thing we've seen to the teaser shown at Comic-Con you have to watch this clip. The video is very similar to the real thing, right down to the soundtrack... except for the ending. Enjoy!

We can always turn to you guys to provide fun and fresh content, and Armand didn't disappoint. He posted this funny sign on Instagram, after spotting it at his local bookstore.

Gibraltar Rock Run: You Are Making It Happen Team Henry Cavill!

Newspaper articles from Gibraltar announcing Henry's participation in the 'Rock Run.' 

Here we are, just a week after announcing that Henry is participating in the Gibraltar Rock Run and you've already raised more than £600 (about $800) in support of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. Go team Henry!

Henry is taking time out of his very busy Batman v Superman filming schedule, to participate in this run that will help a cause that's very close to his heart. As his fans we have been given the opportunity to help him make a difference. So please join us in sponsoring him and help him reach his £20,000 (about $26,700) fundraising goal.

We say it's the least we can do, so when he's out there running to the top of the rock October 25, he knows he has our full support.

Henry is always so kind to his fans, let's not let him down. In the coming weeks, we'll be updating you on the progress of Henry's fundraising effort and giving you more information on the run.

Thank you to the many fan sites that are helping spread the word about the event. They include Henry Cavill JerseyHenry Cavill Italia, CavillFan.Net, Henry Latin Fans, Henry Cavill Czech Republic (Prague), Henry Cavill_IT, Henry Cavill Fanpage and many more. We are all in this together, and we will succeed in helping Henry help the charity he supports. After all, that's what we're here for.

Again, here is the link where you can sponsor him. Any amount helps. Let's do this!

Bat Pic Question Answered: It's All About Conservation

When Henry was announced as the first ambassador for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, many of you wondered about the picture with Henry and the bats. So does it have anything to do with Batman v Superman? we got the answer from Durrell's Rick Jones, who just responded to your comments on our initial post. He also had the best things to say about Henry:

For all of you commenting on what a 'lovely soul' Henry has, I can confirm 100% – actually that's a perfect description. He's one of the nicest people I've met, regardless of any fame or fortune. His visit to the 'Island Bat Roost' happened because the enclosure is built using 100% recycled materials, heated by a biomass burner (in which we burn soiled animal bedding, itself made from shredded paper from the offices) and purpose built to allow the rarest fruit bats in the world to fully exercise their flight muscles. The movie link is coincidental, but it's awesome none-the-less!

Yes it is! - thanks Rick for your feedback on this burning question. You can learn more about Livingstone's fruit bats at Durrell's site. Don't forget you can also become part of Henry's new Gorilla family at the park, by visiting Cavill Conservation.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Pushed Back To August 14, 2015

Nooooooo. That was our initial reaction when hearing that Warner Brothers has pushed back the release of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. from January 16, 2015 to August 14, 2015. Then again it does get a coveted summer spot, and seven months later we get to see Henry as Superman now that Batman v Superman has been moved up to March 25, 2016. Trying to find the silver linings y'all. We'll wait for you Solo!

Hometown Fan Shares His Pic With Henry: Hot Jeans Alert!

Nicolas Mazet met Henry while he was home last week, launching Cavill Conservation and spending time with his family. So glad he got to meet him, along with some other lucky fans. You rock Superman!

'Batman v Superman' Filming: Latest From A Flooded Detroit

Lights, camera, good luck trying to see any action, on the latest set of Batman v Superman. That's not to say fans haven't tried, after all the latest location is pretty out in the open.
Image: @hlmathers
The set might have had to simulate rain for a scene, but the city of Detroit sure didn't need to. There was some major flooding there Monday (see pics at MLive). Luckily, it didn't seem to affect the shoot that continued today.
The cast and crew are filming in and around the Wayne State University campus this week. And Lois Lane has already been spotted several times.

larryjaperez_ met Amy after meeting Henry a few weeks ago. Lucky him!

At last check Henry was still overseas wrapping up his work on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and launching his latest charity push: Cavill Conservation. On the Warner Bros. DC film developing front, today we learned the studio has hired two writers to separately come up with an Aquaman movie script. You can read the rest at The Hollywood Reporter. Look for updates from Detroit and London as we get them.
