Henry Cavill "Very Nice" Says Owner Of Michigan Sports Store


A rep for GearBox Rx got a chance to meet Henry at the Michigan Barbell Classic last month, so it's no surprise he turned up at their store looking for some Crossfit equipment and a new pair of shoes over the weekend. The store posted the new picture with this caption on their Facebook page:

 "Superman stopped by and bought some Invo8s." 
(We think they meant Inov-8)

The store tells us he was there Friday and at first they didn't recognize him because of the longer hair and beard. But then he asked for a pair of shoes "in U.S. size" and that was the giveaway. They said he was "very nice" and they treated him just like they would any other customer. And is that Gina in the background? our readers seem to think so. The store only said Henry was there with two other people, one of them reportedly being his trainer, Michael Blevins. They added that no other pics were taken, but when Blevins returned the next day they asked if they could get a proper photo with the Man of Steel the next time he comes in. Nice to see you again, Superman.

We're just weeks away from the beginning of filming on Batman vs. Superman and we're ready to bring you the latest details and pics as we get them!

  2. If that is Gina in the background then she is there for a reason..because they are together. Good for them, roll on the MOS2 filming coverage, sightings are too few these days! ....LHM

  3. Yay.....love them together. All the great stuff you hear about Gina from fans and co-workers makes one understand why Henry's with her. She seems as down to earth as he is. I'll bet that's rare in their profession.

    1. I agree!! And apparently Henry's mentor/friends--Mark and Lisa Twight and Mark and Erin Blevins like Gina, too!

  4. Kind of weird that a SPORTS store wouldn't recognize or ID Gina Carano.

    1. I never knew who she was until she dated Henry so I think she probably flies under the radar unless you are a fan. I am a fan now though :)

    2. I didn't have a clue who she was either. I was never into the whole extreme fight thing she was involved in and I've never seen any of her movies. And I do think that's her. Her green scarf looks just like the one she was photographed in when they got the puppy.

  5. If that's Gina, shes probably the reason he hasn't been out the past few weekends. Shes keeping him home, entertained & rested. Good woman, but I still miss the photos of him out & about living life.

    1. I think he's probably out but maybe not recognized. I know it seems crazy but most of the people I know don't have a clue who is cause they aren't Superman fans.

    2. Wrong. WB told him to knock it off with all the drinking. That incident at Imperial should have taught him a lesson.

      Delete
    3. What incident? Drinking too much at a young age, among other things, ruins one's looks. So If he was drinking too much good for WB. His hair is combed straight back in the photo, but it makes him look older. He looks better, younger with his natural curly hair.

      Delete
    4. He didn't do anything wrong. Get over it. Henry is rarely tagged by the photogs. He's in his downtime. He can drink whenever he wants. He can grow his as long as he wants. And maybe he's growing it out so he won't be recognized.

      Delete
    5. I don't know if WB told him to cut back or not. In some recent pictures he looks - well, for lack of a better word, older. It's like he may not be taking care of himself as most single men don't do. They say men would be dead by 50 for lack of a good woman. Glad he is back with Gina. She will look out for him.It's good if he is staying in more with Gina and the puppy.

    6. An almost 31 MAN looking older? Shocking! He's in training. He's probably in better shape than 99% of the men out there.

      Delete
    7. @ Anonymous #2. I don't know where you got your information but that has to be false. The only reason Henry Cavill has stopped drinking was due to training. In previous interviews for MOS, Mr. Cavill stated his trainer wouldn't let drink because it interfere with his muscle development.
      My second problem with your statement is why would WB focus on Mr. Cavill. I have never heard Mr. Cavill being neglectful of his duties while filming. In fact, many of his costars have stated that he is very dependable and hardworking. While promoting "Immortals", Frieda Pinto described him as "inspirational" because he was always the first one on set. Amy Adams has also described him as very dedicated. If it is a problem due to image, WB has to be aware that Mr. Cavill is not the only actor to drink. In fact, many actors and actresses drink. Its award season. Do you know how many pictures, I have seen, of actors and actress drinking or drunk? You might find this shocking but many people who are not in show business, like myself, also drink.
      Personally, I don't have a problem with Mr. Cavill drinking. He is young, single, and has no dependents. He is also has been very responsible. In all the photos in which he is drunk, I seen him either take a taxi home or walked. I have never heard him get drunk and drag race someone. He seems to drink only when he is not working.
      Finally, Mr. Cavill has always looked older with a beard. Please just compare photos from different seasons of "The Tudors". You will see what I mean. And even if he did look older, it might be stress induced. How many of us can claim to be involved in a multimillion dollar project. We don't know what is going on behind the scenes.
      Sorry for the long rant. I am just tired of hearing how people expect him to perfect and complain when he is not. New Flash: HE MAY LOOK PERFECT, BUT HE IS NOT! No one is perfect and we shouldn't expect others to be. Good Night.

    8. applauding the comment above. well said.

    9. I agree. But, as I always say, "I hate to be that different person", but this whole Gina thing, I have nothing against her, but I am not a "gullible" fan that will like any girl who is dating a man that I am fond of. People need to stop talking about Gina as they know her from down the street. She might be a nice girl, she might not be. She might be taking care of Henry, she might not be. She might be the one for Henry, she may DEFINITELY not be! But, just because she MIGHT be dating him doesn't mean that I have to join in on the bandwagon and like her just because. That's just the bonafide fact.

      I, too, didn't know who she was until I started supporting Henry, which goes to show that...well, I don't go there. But, I agree with Anonymous #3. Henry, I'm sure, is a baby doll of a person, but he isn't perfect and we can't expect him to be. Probably why in his pictures lately, in MY OPINION, he looks so tired, irritated, exhausted, and just ready to lay down and rest somewhere. I don't blame him.

      That's all I want for him, to be honest. To just stay under the radar, work, rest, and for people to leave him alone for a while.

      Delete
    10. I think he is not happy that Batman and WW are taking over what was supposed to be his film. That's the reason for him looking irritated or whatever in some recent photos. It's like MOS2 with special guest star Superman.

      Delete
    11. So many people have written such thought provoking comments..BlackEssence wrote that Henry is looking "tired,irritated,and exhausted", I could not agree more, I thought I was the only one seeing this..not his jovial self..something seems off with him , not likely the gossip around MOS2 ,maybe personal...I hope not..he deserves so much happiness..All the Best,Henry.

      Delete
    12. Maybe something is going on with WB? He sees Chris Evans and Hemsworth (sp?) getting super-stardom through their OWN trilogies. Something he wanted and maybe was told he'd get by WB, Now he is a co-star with Affleck in the next film and one of 5 co-stars in JL. It probably cuts his pay for the films as he is not the star. Not saying it's a money thing. This is probably not how he hoped it would turn out. There may be some friction between him and the studio.

      Delete
    13. Oh come ON. He's under CONTRACT. Studios don't cut your pay just because they hire another actor. And as if he was unaware of the direction the films would go when he signed. It's not like these are on-the-fly decisions - this is months and years of planning.

      As for whoever is throwing around "drunk" rumors, REALLY?? He didn't have to give up drinking the first time round. He CHOSE to for training sake. As if anything is different now. He's a grown man and a professional who has been in the business for years. Not an idiot who needs a studio to tell how to prepare for a role.

      Delete
    14. Well he sure looked good coming out of Bodoschloss how many nights in a row looking sloshed...and then was on PBS Sesame Street that same timeframe. He is the best role model for my 4 year old who loves to fly around in his Superman costume.

  6. Anonymous #2. You need to post a link to a source when you make a claim like that about WB and Henry Cavill. Otherwise it is gossip and hurtful gossip in this case.

  8. Henry is in a no-win situation with Bat/Sup. If it does great Batman/Affleck will get the credit. If not Superrman/Cavill will get blame. I'd look irritated too in that situation. Affleck is WB's golden boy. No other actor could compete against that.

    1. I could not disagree with you more. Cavill was wonderful as Superman & that is the only role he has to play. Also, he plays with others see: MOS so knowing who the other players are in the new film, it will be a HUGE success. I cannot wait to see Affleck as Batman & he knows how instrumental it is to have a great cast around him.

      Delete
  9. Everyone associated with the film has to be nervous. The DC movie universe rides on it doing great. Mr. Cavill,, Mr. Affleck, Mr. Snyder and the WB suits. They all are likely feeling the pressure. Mr. Cavill gets extra pressure as he will act directly opposite Hollywood golden boy Mr. Affleck and Ocasr nominee Mr. Eisenbeg. He has to hold his own and the critics will be watching those scenes especially. I think he will do well. Still, he might be worried about it. I would be. It's all but assured he will be in JL but if WB has issues they could replace him. Not saying that will happen, but saying Mr. Cavill is under a lot of pressure right now. Take that into consideration. As for Gina, who knows their real relationship, but at least he is not alone in Detroit over what supposedly will be a long, hard shoot.

    1. Henry "held his own" extremely well with his acclaimed costars in MOS (Costner, Adams, Shannon, Crowe, etc.) so I doubt he worries about being overshadowed by the actors in the new MOS/Batman movie. His portrayal of Superman was widely praised, even by critics who didn't love the film. Whether he is nervous about his role being short-changed by the producers, writers, and WB this time is an entirely different matter. Let's hope he is given another opportunity to let his talent shine, because I left MOS super-excited for MORE Clark Kent, Daily Planet reporter!

      Delete
    2. I agree. If he is nervous it's worry of the film turning into a Batman re-launch with his role becoming secondary to Batman.

  11. Henry doesn't need JL or Superman. He has UNCLE and that may turn into a multi-film vehicle for him. MOS2 looks iffy and may not be the vehicle for him. Think out of the box. Think Uncle and other films. Henry does not need to play Superman anymore to have a great career. Think Clooney. Played Batman once and went on to far more success than if he had been stuck playing Batman.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Huh? Henry is "tired,irritated,and exhausted",???? There hasn't been a photo of Henry in over a month (until March 7)--on what photos are you basing this comment? He looked pretty happy to me from the Crossfit photos on Feb. 8, 2014. And Henry looked happy in the sweet photos of him with Kal-El and Gina!

    2. If you, honestly, have not been paying attention, then I am certainly not going to explain it. As you can see in the comments, someone else saw what I saw. Henry looks TIRED. Can't you tell a "programmed" smile from a "natural" smile? Look at all the pictures from the past few months. Lined them up with pictures during the MOS promotion last summer. Pay close attention, I can't emphasize that enough.

    4. I find all these comments very interesting. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and as true fans of Henry, I think we all want the best for him. He said repeatedly during the Man of Steel promotion that what he went through to transform his body was utterly exhausting. He is having to get back into that kind of shape again! I am sure he has good days and bad days like anyone. I am glad he has someone in his life and it wouldn't matter who - so long as he is happy. That's all that should matter after all.

    6. Talk about reading too much into things...

      So he's tired. And?? The guy is busy getting into Superman shape, it isn't easy!

      Why does it have to be a 'OMG something bad must have happened' situation, or 'he must be so unhappy what's wrongggg??' type thing?

      Maybe he is a bit overworked, and maybe he's anticipating the film and all the stress a little bit. Big deal. I'm sure he's also very excited about getting to play Superman once again and work with brilliant actors and make a piece of cinematic history.

      He looked plenty happy in the pics of him and Gina and the puppy. I'm not going to base my opinion on his well-being on fan pictures. He probably is bored of taking them!! Some of these comments are absurd.

    7. What is he doing in Michigan? They are not filming and the script isn't even finished. And why is Gina flying back and forth to visit him? Why doesn't he just stay with Gina and train? And he is taking care of his puppy by himself? This doesn't make sense, so you are all welcome to school me on production of a film.

  16. I'm not necessarily a fan of them together. Not that Gina isn't nice, but she is also known as being pretty wild and crazy. When I see them together they are never affectionate, holding hands or even touching each other. Its a little strange. They almost look more like really close friends. Henry should find someone that he is head over heals about, shows his affection and when he looks at them, he has the look of complete love.....Just my opinion.

    1. I think that's quite a selected way of looking at it. 'Wild and crazy', really?? Based on what. She seems very shy and sweet whenever I see her. I'm sure she has a wilder side, as Henry does, and as most of us do. Yeah I've seen some pictures of her on the internet from a drunken night out but this was all stuff from YEARS ago. We know Henry likes to drink and commented how he likes his gf to be a 'drinking buddy' - and god knows I've been in similar positions as Gina in those pics and I'm not especially 'wild and crazy' lol. I know someone who worked on The Tudors in season 1 and he described Henry as a "hardcore party boy. HARDCORE". Make of that what you will, but that was about the same time as Gina was partying away, doesn't mean they're still like that.

      We have only seen pics where they're posing with fans really, it would be weird if they were affectionate. You are basing this opinion on a few fan pics and I don't think that's fair, there aren't many pictures of them together in general anyway! I'm sure he is very happy with her and loves her very much, otherwise he wouldn't be with her.

    3. There are lots of pics where they show affection. Henry seems to especially enjoy holding her leg!! They were beyond cute at the Critics Choice awards 2013. If Henry looked at me like he looked at her, I would be a VERY happy girl. Looked pretty close in the pic with their puppy as well. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/530017449866853329/

  17. Some people--whether celebs or not-- are just not comfortable with PDA (public displays of affection), but that doesn't signify how they treat each other in private. I remember seeing a really sweet behind-the-scens pic (maybe at Critics Choice Awards) where Henry was accompanying Gina, and he was giving her such an affectionate, lovingly supportive look while she posed by herself. It melted my heart! (Perhaps the great facilitators of this site could locate that pic--or was it a video?--for us.)

  18. Henry made the work for the success of MOS and instead of assuring this new Superman, he is embarked on the JL, what I find without interest, complicated, too long, the stupid duel with DC / Avengers (who will have the biggest? :LOL: ) As fan of the rudby, I think that Henry will convert the try and will show his talents in front of Affleck. I can't wait that this Superman end. Lots of training for 2 shirtless scenes, I find that stupid. And his older face, what damage. He wastes time to dedicate himself to the role which he deserves: 007

    1. I don't think it is healthy for the human body to do the training that Henry does for the role of MOS. I agree that he should be the next 007. He has all the right attributes for that role: looks, charisma, posh speech, sophisticated manners, and the acting chops to boot. I'm hoping that being MOS doesn't preclude him from becoming 007. I'm also hoping that The Man from UNCLE will be a success. I think Henry is perfect for that part for the same reasons that he's perfect for 007.

      Delete
    2. I think it's best Henry move past Superman. MOS not getting a trilogy was a blessing in disguise. He won't be typecast. If BvsS fails then the rest of Henry's WB options will be used for mainstream films. Superman gets so much grief and too the actors playing him. It's a career killer. If BvsS does well and JL is made I am hoping Henry passes on it and moves on to better things..

      Delete
    3. Agree with Mary. For all the work Henry did to not give him his own sequel is cold. But its how studios work. It's all about Affleck and Gadot now. The role is tough anyway. Compare before and after pictures of Henry and he has changed noticeably since prior to filming MOS. Chris Evens has not changed at all on the other hand in the same period. Cap is an easier role insofar as the massive body work is not required and there is added stress in plaing Superman that is not there with other super-heroes. Stress is a killer. Many actors have turned down the role and for good reason.

      Delete
    4. Henry loves playing Superman as he has stated for years. I don't see him walking away. Superman always needs a nemesis so we'll see how Batman plays out.

      Delete
    5. Henry Cavill said in an interview before MOS that he didn't think JL would come out for a while. He expected 3 solo Superman films first. But MOS underperformed studio expectations and plans changed. Being one of a huge cast of co-stars in JL films is not what I think he anticipated doing. Especially as Batman/Affleck will likely be the core leader of JL. It doesn't seem the best way to advance his career. If he can turn down JL and get another film instead he should go for it. I'll try to find the story where he said JL was a long way off.

      Delete
    6. Honestly, I believe MOS II has greater chance of being successful in the Box Office then "The Man from Uncle". The Man from Uncle's is being released in January. January is really bad month for movies. Most people have no money due to the holidays.

      Secondly, Batman and Wonder Woman were only added to increase tickets sales. Zack Snyder already stated Batman will be supportive role and Wonder Woman will be cameo. The story will focus on Superman and the aftermath from destruction of Metropolis.

      Finally, I am hoping the rumors are true that Ben Affleck will be directing JL movie. Imagine Mr. Cavill being directed by an Oscar winning Director. Have a nice day.

      Delete
    7. You're right, I can remember the JL article. Have you read anything that states how big a role Batman & WW will play? I have to admit that I am excited about the Superman/Batman film but I cannot figure out how WW is going to play out? Really off topic but in a recent Chris Evans interview he said was going to be happy when his Captain America parts are done & he plans to take some time off. The body perfection they have to attain probably gets old plus I would think you tire of the character as well. Did you see the last Thor film? Loki transforms into Captain America - really funny.

      Delete
    8. I am more of DC fan girl. I haven't watched any of the Marvel movies except for the X-men ones. I think the article compare the size of Wonder Woman to that of Black Widow's when she first came out. I don't know how big it was in Iron Man II. Good night.

      Delete
    9. Batman was added because WB had doubts a solo MOS2 could do better than MOS. If the reviews had been good it might have been different. WB isn't doing more solo Superman for one reason. The studio doesn't think its a big money-maker.

      Delete
    10. How do we know they wouldn't do another solo Superman film if BvS does really well? If they introduce JL then the other heroes will start to have their own spin offs probably, if it's a success surely they'd consider doing another Superman film? How do we know they definitely have shelved that idea entirely? DO we know??

      Delete
    11. The focus seems like getting JL, Batman solos and WW solos launched. Will take years. They could try another Superman but its likely a decade away. Henry needs to consider his options. Is it better for him to co-star in mainstream films over the next decade or be a small part of multi-starred JL films which take long shoots eating up time he could use filming other films. If he decides to walk after the upcoming film I will support him in that. If he decides to stay on to do JL I will support that too.

      Delete
  19. Mr. Cavill has several more options with WB. Is there such a thing as right of first refusal with actors? Can they turn down a film when the studio offers it to them and ask that their option be used for another film? I'm being selfish here. In JL Mr. Cavill will be one of 6 co-stars. How much air time will he have? Not much. A lot less than in MOS. It'd be better for him not to do JL an instead get another WB film where he can be the star. Assuming he can turn JL down and that WB will offer him a different film.

  20. UNCLE is a different type of film totally. I think that it's better for Cavill's career that he move past comic book films. I too hope he passes on JL. I want to see him move his career forward and not be stuck in JL films where he won't have a big role in anyway.
