Henry Holds No Grudges Againts Bullies, Hopes To Prove He Is Superman Worthy



We're just now getting a first look at Henry's interview with OK magazine. In it he talks about preparing to become Superman, but also shares some childhood memories, his outlook on life, and we even get a bit of his flirty side:

What do you wear underneath it (costume)?

"[Laughs] I'll leave that to your imagination"  

NAUGHTYYYY Henry!!, we can just see the smile that probably went with that answer ;)

UPDATE: Partial transcript is in via:

Is it a bird? No, it’s a hunk!

In the interview for OK! magazine fit Brit Henry Cavill talks about playing out his fantasies as the new Man Of Steel...

They’re difficult tights to fill, but British actor Henry Cavill isn’t worried about taking on the iconic role of Superman in new movie Man Of Steel. "I focus on success because failure will take care of itself," he says. In Los Angeles to promote the movie the Jersey boy is dressed conservatively in a pair of navy trousers and a dark grey shirt which brings out his blue eyes. Softly spoken, he measures his words carefully and seems a little out of his comfort zone doing interviews, although he’s friendly and charming. It’s that charm which has no doubt led to Henry, 29, being linked to a string of beautiful women, most recently American actress Gina Carano.

Here, handsome Henry reveals all about his grueling preparations for the hotly anticipated movie, what he wears underneath his superhero costume and why he isn’t worried about the curse of Superman...

Do you feel super?

[Laughs] Very funny, I haven’t heard that one before.


How badly did you want the role? Did you fight to get it?

I wanted it really badly. You fight for every job you audition for. Normally you don’t knew the fight’s happening. You’ll go in, audition, do your screen test and then people will be fighting on your behalf — who want either you or someone else in the role. I just did my best to try and get the role and something right happened.

How did you prepare for it?

My goodness, a lot of preparation went into this role! I chose which material I wanted to draw from and that was basically the source material, the comic books. I didn’t want to draw from previous TV shows or movies because those are other filmmaker’s interpretations of this character. There’s an honesty to Superman and the want and will do the right thing — that’s all I tried to portray in my performance. I didn’t try to do anything too clever, I just thought — go to the source material, read some stuff in time for the screen test and provide an honest, straightforward, humble character.

And physically?

Physically a lot of hard work went into it. There was two months of pre-training — just getting to me used to that kind of work. And then the hard work would start when I’d work with my trainer in a gym. The first two months were very, very difficult. He really put me through the ringer. Then we went into the bulking-up phase. It was about two hours a day of really crushing yourself, pushing way beyond limits which I certainly never perceived I had. It took a long time and a lot of dedication.

What about the diet?

There was a special meal plan set up. At one stage I was on 5,000 calories a day, which people say is a lot, but actually is really fantastic and pretty damn easy! [Laughs] I mean, it’s not junk food, but I loved it. I loved the eating side of it.

How did you feel in the costume?

After everything that went into it, I loved wearing it every day. You put it on and, sure, there were sometimes where it got tricky or uncomfortable, but I loved it. I mean, I got to be Superman every day! A really cool, modern version of Superman.

What do you wear underneath it?

[Laughs] I'll leave that to your imagination!

How much pressure did you feel?

There’s obviously the opportunity to feel a lot of pressure, but I try and avoid that because the one lesson I’ve learned is that I've done all the work now. There’s no need to do anything but just work hard and strive towards victory. If I let pressure play a factor, it would be a detriment to my work and my personality.

What did you do when you found out you got the part?

It’s surreal when you get a part like that, you don’t really believe it. The scope of what it is to get a role of this magnitude, with such a great team attached and the opportunity to tell such a wonderful story, is difficult to realise. Not to say I didn’t get very excited. I ran up and down the stairs of my house shouting for a good 15 minutes while I was trying to call my family — no one was picking up their phone!

You're following other British actors Andrew Garfield and Christian Bale playing American superheroes — did that worry you seeing as they were criticised for it?

Do I follow it? I mean, sure, every now and then I read stuff and see what people are saying, but I don’t think it matters. It’s an example I’ve used a lot but it still rings true — Superman is an invulnerable alien from Krypton, he’s not American. But the point is we’re all actors and we’re playing characters. I completely understand the feeling behind people saying an American should play this American icon, but hopefully we’ll put all fears to rest when people see he movie.

Kids love to imagine they’re Superman — who did you like to pretend to be?

I’m sure as a kid I had fantasies, but my parents raised my brothers and I to be very proud of who we are — not to the point of arrogance, but to the point of pride and confidence. Even when I had a tricky time in school, you know, because kids are mean and that’s just the way it is, I never wished I was anyone but me. I just thought, well this is pretty tough for the time being and let's get through this.

Have any of those kids tried to get in contact with you now to apologise?

Oh there’s no need to apologise. You weren’t friends after school so why would they be in touch with me now? These people, they’re adults now, and they’re different people from who they were. There’s no finger pointing. I have no hard feelings towards anyone. If I bumped into them in the street, I’d go for a pint for sure.


The rest when we get it! - Thanks to LoveHenryCavill for sharing!

DC VP of Marketing Says Get Ready For The Big Announcement!


Comicbook.com has shared the exciting details of the comments made by DC VP of Marketing John Cunningham today, regarding a future superhero franchise:

During a panel at C2E2, DC/Warner Bros. VP Marketing John Cunningham was asked about the possibility of either a Justice League or Wonder Woman movie. John Cunningham replied, “Well, we weren’t going to say anything until Warner Bros. studios allowed us to do it, but since you asked the question. Watch this space. Watch it. It’s coming.”

His comments seem to mirror what Warner Bros. said about a big announcement in the coming weeks. (We'd love to believe rumors about Gina Carano filling those Wonder Woman boots are true). Cunningham also mentioned Henry:

When asked if there were any plans to use Superman Return’s Brandon Routh in anything Superman related such as animated features, John Cunningham replied, “If we do have those plans I am not aware of them, but let’s hope that after June 14 you won’t want to see anybody but Henry Cavill doing this role.”


We know once that date comes around, Henry will be on everyone's radar and we love it!

Henry Talks 'Man of Steel,' Snyder Says They Gave Him "Some Shades Of Gray"


The LA Times has some new quotes from Henry and the director and producers of Man of Steel. We admit when director Zack Snyder talked developing the character, we giggled a little:

“We tried not to make him so predictably morally black and white,” Zack Snyder added. “We gave him some shades of gray. His inherent goodness is still there, and if you really think about it, you still want him to be right and to make the right choices and to do the right thing. I think that we all hope for that in ourselves, and I think that’s what always has made him a very interesting character. He’s a Christlike figure. There’s no two ways about it.”

Yeah, yeah, we know FSoG doesn't belong in this world, moving on..

Henry described what kind of story Man of Steel will try to convey to moviegoers:

“It very much is a story of hope,” (..) “Hope is strength and victory against adversity, or at least the hope of victory against adversity, and that is what Superman represents.”



Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer, was bombarded with Justice League questions during a Reddit AMA today. He skirted most of them, but eventually he did answer what it will take to move ahead with the project:

“In order for a Justice League film to happen, MOS has to be successful. That’s up to you guys and about 80 million other people. ; )”


Comicbook.com has more details.

As we told you, Walmart has announced a big partnership with Warner Bros. ahead of the Man of Steel release. It includes an app that allows users to unlock exclusive content, and also take pictures with Superman. You can see a cool preview here. via @Comicbooknerd.

Finally, Film Music Reporter has posted the track list for the Man of Steel score, but we warn you it's kind of spoilerish. Check it out now!

What A Way To Attract Superfans: Henry's Comic Inspirations On Display

UPDATE 4/21: We've added more of Henry's comments to EW about the comics he read, to prepare for Man of Steel.

“I read as much as I could, purely because I wanted to get a great reservoir of knowledge from the source material,” Cavill tells EW. “There are so many different representations of the character that it was easy to draw a baseline and pick and choose some flavors. They’re all facets and aspects of the same character, so you’ve just got to combine them and can play around with them and apply it to the script.” 
Read his comic by comic breakdown.


One of our favorite sections of the Man of Steel article in EW, was Henry talking about which comics he read to prepare for the role (click to read below). Henry Cavill News reader Stephanie works at a library, and shared her display of Superman comics along with Henry's Read poster. What a great way to inspire superfans!

Forget The Abs, Man of Steel's Bum Getting All The Attention

Here we thought our exclusive pics of Henry on the set of Man of Steel were hot. Kotobukiya is giving us a first look at their Superman figure, and we have to say.. he's pretty built.


Kind of looks like he had a butt implant to us, "but" we'll take it.


You have to admit the "accommodate the cape however you want it" option is pretty cool.


Of course nothing competes with the real thing
