Henry On Superman: "Wonderfully Rich" & "Enjoyable To Play"

Behind the scenes of Batman v Superman via Total Film

Cineplex just came out with its guide of the Must See Movies of 2016, and of course Batman v Superman had to be in there. But the really exciting part, is that the article includes a new interview with Henry. In it he talks about the criticism against Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and playing Supes: 

Cavill is good-natured about his first Superman movie’s lukewarm reviews as he reveals what little he’s allowed to about the expansive second chapter.“The reception of my first Superman movie, from what I’ve read, was fairly mixed,” the English actor says via phone from New York. 

“Everyone I’ve spoken to enjoyed the movie, but [not] unlike if you’re going to meet a stranger in the street, they’re not going to badmouth you to your face. There’s no intentional move, I don’t think, in Batman v. Superman to address any issues that people had with Man of Steel. It’s just a continuation of that storyline and they continue to develop that world and introduce new characters.”

Cavill adds that, perhaps more than world-building, he’s excited to explore new aspects of his brooding, conflicted, Earth-saving alien.“I think maybe people may look down on some popular-culture stuff, but they’re actually very complicated and interesting characters,” he says.

“Superman especially, he’s just wonderfully rich and one of those things, for me, that’s just enjoyable to play. There’s so far you can go with it; if you really, really delve deep into the character, there’s so much you can do. It’s just about exploring it within the vehicles and finding what you want to do. He’s going to have some very interesting character development in this one.”



It's interesting to note the interview was reportedly conducted while Henry was in New York. So we're not sure if it was done when he was there promoting The Man from U.N.C.L.E. last summer (and was embargoed until now), or if he's been there recently perhaps doing more press ahead of the Batman v Superman release. Either way, the promotional floodgates have opened, and you can expect to see him on magazine covers and making tons of TV appearances soon. And we'll be here to bring it all to you!

  4. Well. This surprises me. The movie’s "lukewarm reviews" are from critics; but "Everyone I’ve spoken to enjoyed the movie" is from, well, everybody. I hope that he realizes that MoS is a classic that will still be watched and still be loved in fifty or even a hundred years, if the electrical grid holds out that long -- like Gone With The Wind or even The Wizard of Oz. It's a great movie. Modesty is all very well, and so good to see in a movie star, but he can certainly be proud of Man of Steel.

  8. OK so let him be with whoever he chooses. Its his life to live. He deserves to be happy if she is what he wants than be happy for him. Its his life journey, his path in life, he doesn't owe anybody an explanation to what he does and who he dates. He should be allowed to be happy and be with whoever his heart leads him to. You would want to be happy so let's leave him be with Tara if that's his choice.

  9. Watching MoS...for me this is the best of the best I cannot think of another movie that I know by heart & still enjoy watching more than this one.

  10. I think MOS had some clunky dialouge and some jarring transitions, but Henry is perfect as Supes. I think some people can't let go of the comical, goofy Christopher Reeve Superman movies, but a different time and a different story. I'm really looking forward to seeing Clark at the Daily Planet, with Lois, etc. March will be here soon. I must be patient.
