Just before leaving on the Man of Steel promo tour in June, Henry met with members of the military at Edwards Air Force Base where some of the film was shot. Fans were also treated to a pre-screening of Man of Steel. These are pictures posted by the the Air Force on their online newspaper journal: Aero Tech News.
After the meet and greet was finished, Cavill went to each theater to greet the Edwards crowd and thank them for their service. After Cavill departed, the packed houses were treated to the film.
“The event Saturday was truly amazing, especially for us at Edwards!” “To be able to have Henry Cavill come out here and take time from his busy schedule, just to be able to say thanks to the troops and show his gratitude for what we do each and every day as well as being able to take some pictures and autographs was just something you don’t see now a days from movie stars.”
