Henry Cavill talks Man Of Steel and James Bond
Exclusive: “I’m very proud to be British and playing an iconic American superhero”

Total Film has spoken exclusively to Henry Cavill about his role as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel.

The in-demand Brit was keen to talk up the super-diet he’s consuming in his efforts to get the body of Krypton’s favourite son:

“I’m on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve gotta keep your hunger levels going. I’m training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.”

Well, you’ve gotta be pretty buff before you can don an iconic superhero suit, right? On wearing his new threads, Cavill told us: “It’s extremely cool. There’s no other feeling like it.

“They just put it on, I turned around and look in the mirror and you can’t really play it cool – you sort of guffaw and laugh. I thought ‘OK, holy hell, this is real, it’s not a joke anymore. This is it…you’re doing it, you’re right in the middle of it.’”

While he couldn’t divulge any plot details (“not if I want to keep my job anyway!”), he confirmed that he’s focusing on “being as true as I can be to the original character and who the character is.”

Cavill also admitted that he’s chuffed to be another UK actor portraying an American superhero: “I’m very proud to be British and playing an iconic American superhero…it means I’m doing something right somewhere.”

He came close to landing the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig was cast; would he like another chance to slip into 007’s tux?

“That would be absolutely amazing. If they approached me on that I’d leap at the opportunity to do it. But that’s of course well away for the time being…”

Man Of Steel is set to open in Summer 2012.
