The Hollywood Reporter: "Henry Cavill Is Perfect For Superman"


We love when the Hollywood trades recognize talent and give them a shout-out. In its new A-list issueThe Hollywood Reporter focused on British stars and of course Henry is mentioned!

"Finding the next young British star has become a huge deal in Hollywood: I've noticed a lot of agents in America will come to the U.K. to go to the theaters and drama schools looking for the next hot thing. Initially, interest may have been a question of cost because you could get a talented British actor for not-so-much money. You can look back at The Wire, which hadDominic West and Idris Elba, as one example. Dominic absolutely landed that leading role, and his accent wasn't brilliant, but they didn't care. But now it's become about just looking for the best actor. Most of the superheroes now are British. Henry Cavill is perfect for Superman, and Christian Bale was perfect for Batman. It's about casting the role with the best person you can find, and in Britain, we grew up on Starsky & Hutch, Kojak and Hawaii Five-0; we grew up with American accents, so British actors are able to have those accents as opposed to American actors, who would only see a few British shows."

And you know Henry nailed that Supes/Clark accent! -- The piece includes this cool illustration with Henry's likeness.. but what's with the red shorts. Out with the red shorts!

The Superman mentions this week don't stop there. Henry is once again the top pic on Entertainment Weekly's gallery, following the release of our first look at Lex Luthor. 


Henry Cavill as Superman

Henry Cavill returns as Superman, reprising his role and pebbled tights from Man of Steel. Only this time, the last son of Krypton is making room on the marquee for another caped crusader. Based on this grey-skied first image released by Warner Bros. last July, he doesn’t seem too happy about it.


Supes is owning it! -- Henry talked about his love and respect for Superman, in his interview with ShortList magazine. It most definitely shows on the big screen. He also mentioned a favorite shirt of his.. and its makers took the time to thank him on twitter. It made our Thursday.  


Finally, the second round of BuzzFeed's "Hot Guy March Madness" is up, and Henry is facing off against Zac Efron who is a bit ahead. Let's get Henry to the next round everyone! -- VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.

  1. Yes Henry is the perfect choice for Superman and I am so happy he has an opportunity to play the character many times. Good for you Henry for not giving up being an actor during those struggling actor years.

  2. I know everyone says he was born in Jersey and we see pictures of him with his family, but I still say Henry was produced in a secret DC Comic laboratory for the sole purpose of portraying the perfect Superman. And thank goodness it worked!

    1. Ha! - that secret DC lab outdid itself. Do his *fake* Jersey parents get royalties?

  4. Look it. My post was deleted but the question is why has not Henry been upped for more Supes. Forget Amy, Henry is the key. Gee, Mamoa is hinting he has a 6 pic deal.

    The reality and I'd like an answer.

    I don't like the delay and don't understand it.

  5. And yes, I am increasingly disappointed in Henry. Die-hard fan at one time but he is 32 folks. Still bar-hopping. Going from gal-pal to gal-pal. To me that speaks of an issue. This will get deleted but IMO Henry is focusing on frivolous thing and not his craft.

    By most indications, as of now, WB will not be bringing him back after JL 1 and his 3 -pic del is up.

    Think about that and why they seem to be about to drop him.

    You can blame MOS underpeforming and getting bad critical reviews but IMO a lot of it lieson Henry. Sorry and this will likely get deleted but its spoken or written from the heart.
