You remember these pictures that left us breathless after the BAFTA Awards in February. Now photographer Gavin Bond has revealed the photo shoot was part of his "Best of British" portfolio, in next month's issue of British GQ. He included the pic being used in the video below, in all its untagged and full color gorgeousness.

UPDATE 5/7: Here's the scan with the caption it comes with. We bet it's the best looking pic in the issue. Go Henry!
Henry Cavill has seemingly done the impossible - twice. First, he took on the role of Superman after the late Christopher Reeve - something of a poisoned chalice (see Brandon Routh) — and injected it with a brooding human intensity that was less clean-cut American try—hard and more, well, Christian Bale in Batman (a good thing). And secondly, not only has he kept his job as Clark Kent, but he's making good choices outside of Smallville - his turn as Napoleon Solo in The Man From U.N. C.L.E. was as enjoyable as it was stylish. Next, he does battle with Ben Affleck's caped crusader in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and more intriguingly, the adaptation of Duncan Falconer's autobiographical tale, Stratton: First Into Action.
