When “Man of Steel” hits theaters next June, you’ll believe a man can fly, and that’s all thanks to the convincing work of leading man Henry Cavill.
Speaking with MTV News at the red carpet premiere of “Boardwalk Empire” this week, “Man of Steel” actor Michael Shannon — who plays the villain in the Zack Snyder-directed action film — expressed his admiration for Cavill’s work ethic and his amazing transformation into the Last Son of Krypton.
“I always felt like I was in a scene with Superman,” Shannon said of Cavill’s performance. “I never looked at him and thought that’s just somebody trying to be Superman — he felt like the real deal. I really admire Henry’s work ethic. I really haven’t seen anybody in this business work quite that hard. Obviously it’s a tremendous responsibility, and an intimidating one, to wear that suit. But he had the confidence and the work ethic to accomplish it.”
