Woot! Another project for Henry!

Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Man Of Steel) confirmed today with USA Today that he will indeed star opposite Armie Hammer in the upcoming film reboot of the popular television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. Now for many fans this is interesting news, as Hammer was once attached to play Batman in the now canned Justice League: Mortal. With the general audience seeing Cavill and Hammer on the big screen together, could this be a strategy to see how the general audience would react (women wouldn’t have a hard time)?

Here’s a preview of the interview airing thursday night on Nightline, ABC, at 12:35am ET:



‘Man of Steel’ Star Henry Cavill on Being Stunned When He Got the Part, Donning the Iconic Suit

Superman’s superpowers and do-good demeanor, along with that red cape rippling through the air, have made the beloved superhero a pop culture icon.

For decades, Superman has been brought to life by a stream of established actors. But this time around, it’s 30-year-old Englishman Henry Cavill starring in the latest Superman epic, “Man of Steel,” and stepping into that familiar suit.

“That felt incredible, there is nothing quite like it,” Cavill said of putting on Superman’s suit on for the first time.

“It’s not just a suit. It’s like when someone cooks you a wonderful meal and you can taste that there’s love put in the food. It’s the same thing with the suit.”

Rugged and freshly imagined, “Man of Steel,” which premieres on June 14, tackles the Superman story head-on from a different angle — which some might have said was a gamble.

While snarky or obsessed comic book superheroes have found 21st century box office gold — Iron Man, Thor, Batman — Superman, the un-ironic superhero, had not. After the 2006 film “Superman Returns” failed to launch, there were whispers about Superman’s relevance. But that didn’t intimidate “Man of Steel” director Zack Synder.

“Superman has always been the best and greatest superhero, because he’s kind of the purest mythology of what a superhero is,” Synder said.

Superman creators Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel developed Superman in Depression-era Cleveland. Then, he was the car-lifting, bullet-stopping star of the now million-dollar collectible Action Comics #1. Since then, he has seen 75 years atop the superhero food chain.

Superman’s image has changed overtime, with filmmakers morphing his look and ideals to match the generation. In the 1950s, Superman was a kid-friendly idol as actor George Reeves held the role for six seasons of TV’s “The Adventures of Superman.” By the late ’70s and ’80s, actor Christopher Reeve put on the red cape.

A new interview with Henry and another magazine cover and a gorgeous new photoshoot! Click the image for the rest of the photos


When he found out he was to play Superman in Man Of Steel, he reacted the way any of us would. Now, as the world waits to see him in the suit, Andrew Dickens meets Henry Cavill.

Superman: faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! The latter sentence describes the impact Henry Cavill’s casting as the cowlicked Kryptonian in Man Of Steel had on some cape-loving cinemagoers. This, after all, was a public school-educated Channel Islander with a reputation for getting his 16th-century kit off in The Tudors and a solitary leading role to his name (in Immortals), completing a British hat-trick of major superhero roles alongside Christian Bale’s Batman and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man.

The first sentence, however, does not describe Cavill’s journey to stardom. Often described as ‘the unluckiest man in Hollywood’, until a couple of years ago he was most famous for nearly being James Bond, nearly being Edward Cullen in Twilight – nearly being famous, basically.

He was even nearly wearing the cape in Bryan Singer’s 2006 film Superman Returns. So, when he finally earned his Spandex, he must have felt like leaping over a very tall building in a single bound.

Most obvious question first: how did you feel when you got the part?

Clearly excited. I mean, it’s one of those things where you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re going, “I don’t believe it. I’m Superman.” And you keep repeating it. It’s so surreal that you need someone from Warner Brothers just to call you and say, “Hey, it’s real.”

How does this differ from past Superman films?

The one major difference from movies and TV shows past, is that this is very much grounded in reality. This is a real world – this is today’s world that just happens to have an invulnerable superpowered alien living in it – and that’s the great thing about it. It’s about a realistic setting with something unrealistic slammed in the middle of it, and how everyone reacts to that.

Did you gauge the response online?

Of course I did. People were saying, “You’re the most looked-at person on IMDB,” and I’m like, “What? You’re kidding me? I’ve got to go and check that out.” I certainly checked fan response throughout the movie to see how they felt, and to let me know if I was on the right track. If I’d had a really bad feeling about the movie, I wouldn’t be checking that stuff, but things felt like they were going well, so I thought it was fine to go and have a little look.

A couple of your compatriots, Christian Bale and Andrew Garfield, have also been cast as big-name superheroes. Did you seek advice?

I didn’t, actually. I did briefly speak to Chris Hemsworth at Comic Con, who played Thor. I just walked up to him and said, “Mate, I wanted to say hi, my name is Henry, I’m playing Superman. What’s it like?” He said “Don’t worry about it. The fans are a lot more supportive than you think. They’re behind you the whole way, so just enjoy it.” He’s a really nice bloke.

You came close to a couple of other roles – James Bond and Edward in Twilight. When you don’t get a role, does it hurt or motivate?

First of all, I want to set the record straight; with the Twilight thing, I think Stephenie Meyer was keen on me playing the role, but I was never approached with a script. The Bond thing is true, but when you get close to big stuff, your name is put in Variety or Empire saying you’re ‘the unluckiest guy in Hollywood’, and it’s actually a huge bonus – it gets you a name, and to land lead roles in Hollywood you need a name. I’m glad I didn’t get Bond, as Daniel Craig is the perfect guy to tell that story, and I don’t think I could’ve done it at that age [Cavill was 22 when he auditioned for Casino Royale]. He nailed it and is continuing to nail it.

A great article and a new photo!

The British actor has seen starring roles, but never anything like iconic comic-book hero Superman.

Henry Cavill wears blue jeans, flip-flops and a T-shirt while walking through a flock of diners at Fishbar restaurant, but it might as well be a form-fitting bodysuit and a red cape.

Maybe it’s his stride, physique, deep blue eyes and coiffed dark hair, the guy really does look like Superman, even while relaxing at a beach eatery.

“When my hair was longer months ago, you wouldn’t have said as much,” says Cavill, 30. “But at the moment, yeah, I guess there’s a certain resemblance.”

This “certain resemblance” was strong enough that director Zack Snyder nabbed the British actor to play the iconic comic-book character in Man of Steel, the much-awaited Superman reboot that hits screens June 14. It was also enough that Cavill was pursued for 2006’s Superman Returns, though he lost out to Brandon Routh when the project switched directors.

The experience of having come so close just makes snaring the Man of Steel role that much more poignant. It also gave Cavill some valuable training for the path-seeking character he portrays.

“I guess you can say Henry was born to play Superman,” says Snyder, noting the actor’s physical similarities. “But all these life experiences have come together. He’s gone through a journey. In our movie, Clark Kent gets jostled around by life and then becomes Superman. Henry has done the same thing.”

Cavill already has had an impressive career, including roles in 2002’s The Count of Monte Cristo, Showtime’s The Tudors and 2011’s Immortals (which had a No. 1 opening weekend with $32 million).

But he also has shrugged off high-profile setbacks such as losing out to Daniel Craig for the role of James Bond.

“Having had all the ups and downs maybe made me want to work all the harder,” Cavill says. “Yeah, bad things will happen to you. And you’ll get kicked (down) a few times. Stand up.”

But with Man of Steel, “I got lucky enough to have a second shot with different people whose vision I fit into,” he says.
