Henry Cavill and Luke Evans discuss their roles as some of the most well-known and beloved characters of both ancient and contemporary mythology, in films like Superman and ‘The Hobbit’.
Henry Cavill has gone through intense physical training for his role as the man-in-blue in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
This Superman, by all accounts, not only carries the extraordinary gifts of his predecessors but is also one of raw, physical, brute strength and power. At the Los Angeles press event for director Tarsem Singh’s upcoming fantasy-adventure, Immortals, Cavill about how his experience with what the cast jokingly referred to as the “Immortals diet” and workout regime mentally prepared him for the rigorous work he would endure for Superman.
“Any experience on an acting job is good experience because you can take it to the next [job]. The physical experience (on “Immortals”) was obviously wonderful because it’s prepped me for this (“Superman”) physical experience. I’ve learned that when you go to this kind of level, it’s no longer about the physical, it’s more about the mental. It’s about the will power to push yourself into that very dark place. You’re standing next to the precipice, and you’ve got that weight on your shoulders, and you’re only halfway through the workout and you need to push yourself off and just go into that big f**k-off black hole and keep on pushing. “Immortals” prepped me for that emotionally and mentally…in the physical sense, if that makes sense. So, I’m very grateful for that.”
Man of Steel star Henry Cavill refused to reveal any Superman secrets at the press day for his Greek gods epic Immortals. But the British actor did eloquently explain why his nationality doesn’t stop him from playing an all-American superhero.
Cavill was mainly there to talk about his upcoming turn as the Greek hero Theseus – and we’ll have more on Immortals in a little bit – but he did address one or two Superman-related issues. Most importantly, Cavill was asked whether a Brit can really play a character who is so resolutely American. Cavill argued that it doesn’t matter, drawing a parallel to Superman’s own Kryptonian origins:
It is an iconic American role… well, he’s an American icon. Whether it’s an American role or not, I can’t be sure. Superman is a universal image, and what he stands for is very universal. He was certainly raised in America, but he in himself is not necessarily American, because he comes from somewhere very far away and very different, and he is very different. And therefore all the more beautiful when he tries to do so much for all of us who are so different from him.
Some actors might get a little help from the costume department when portraying a hero on the big screen, but British actor Henry Cavill, star of “Immortals” and the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed “Man of Steel,” pushed his body to the max to get a hero-worthy physique.
“We did a lot of training. I was training for six months. I started before I finished ‘The Tudors,’” Henry told Access Hollywood at the junket for his latest movie “Immortals.”
“I was up at four in the morning, doing a couple of hours there and then a day’s work. But as soon as I got off ‘The Tudors,’ then we could do the full training. It went up to about eight hours a day by the time it was February,” he continued.
As you can see, today the press work for Immortals has officially began. Luke posted on his twitter that they broke the mark of 80 interviews. In one day.

The first time I had it all on with the cape, I deliberately didn’t look in the mirror as it was going on because I wanted to have that sorta turnaround moment. Probably one of the best moments of my life to turn around and realize [small pause] that I’m Superman.
