Solo Spotted In London As Cameras Roll On 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

@KenzieAnnTaylor: Hey there, Henry Cavill.. 

(First pic of Henry as Napoleon Solo. We hear Armie was also there, could be him behind Henry).

Leave it to a University twitter, to flag the world about the unofficial start of filming on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 

regentsuni: Henry Cavill's next project, The Man From U.N.C.L.E, being filmed just behind our campus in Regent's Park today.

The University went on to say that the set involved a scene by the lake. 

‏@g0_f1sh: Guy Ritchie is filming his new flick at work...with Henry Cavill...Swoon

I just heard Guy Ritchie shout 'Action!' #awesome

Basically people could just WALK BY THE SET (dyiiing here). And going by the various student tweets that came after, Henry caught everyone's attention.

‏@deboraberastury: Casually saw Henry Cavill in my 'backyard' (Regent's Park) filming a movie. #MadeMyDay #StudyAbroad

‏@KenzieAnnTaylor: Just saw Henry Cavill, the guy who played the new Superman, at school today. Um, okay.

‏@Melissa_Louise7: JUST SAW HENRY CAVILL aka. Superman/Man of Steel #celebspotting #ahhhh

‏@MaddicornJust saw Henry Cavill and what I personally believe was Armie Hammer in the park, right outside of campus.

@TheBoulay Henry Cavill's next project, The Man From U.N.C.L.E, being filmed just behind our campus in Regent's Park today.

Of course as soon as word got out that there was filming going on, the crew kept a close watch to make sure the set was secure.

‏@katemcdphoto: Henry Cavill is shooting a movie in my backyard :) @ Regent's Park

And the tweets kept coming.

fechtbuch: They're filming Guy Ritchie's Man From U.N.C.L.E. round the corner. Rumoured Hugh Grant sightings abound.

@PaulCorrall: Trying to spot Henry Cavill (Superman) in my lunch break. The Man from U.N.C.L.E is being filmed behind Regent's University. Cool outfits :)

@KatePemberton'Cafe gustav' was a location, by a lake and the extras were wearing 60s clothes. Any ideas?? #filminginregentspark

nigelrumbleOn the set of the New Warner Bros "Man From U.N.C.L.E" production last take of the first days filming. 

@jojopics: This was the set for man from uncle #missedit #fakebuilding

While we're very excited to share filming details with you, whenever possible we try to respect the privacy of locations so the cast and crew can do their work in peace. Again we go case by case depending on the situation, but we urge fans to not tweet or retweet specific location details while filming is in progress.

The official start of production is Monday. Catch up on everything else we know about the film, and stay tuned for the very latest!


  1. The one behind Henry does seem like Armie.....LOL the height difference is amazing.....We wuv u Henwee.....keep up the good work!

  2. I think it's a bit of a perspective thing. If it is Armie, then he looks even taller because he is closer to the camera. And perhaps Henry is walking downhill. There is only a 4 inch difference between them and it looks like much more than that in the picture. :) My grandfather is 6'1 (like Henry), my father 6'3 and my brother 6'6...they really don't look that different standing next to each other. :)

    And it looks like David is my height...because it looks the same as I look when I stand next to my brother. A 15 inch difference between us! My brother can use me for an armrest (and he does. lol).
