Entertainment Weekly Introduces Our New 'Superman' Henry Cavill


For those who may have been living under a rock these past few weeks, the new Last Son of Krypton has already been cast by the lovely British actor Henry Cavill. Cavill, known mostly for his portrayal of Charles Brandon on Showtime’s The Tudors, was actually a front runner for the 2006 Superman Returns movie - however the role ultimately went to Brandon Routh instead. I guess there’s buzz surrounding the fact that they cast a UK native to play the all American Super Hero. Some people do not like the idea. Personally, I find that retarded - if the shoe fits… So for those who are still not convinced, EW will introduce us to our new Superman: Man of Steel in this week's issue, with a cover story. I’m so excited! Not only do they talk with the actor, who I have a huge crush on, but they have even more praise straight from director Zack Snyder as to why Cavill is perfect for the blue tights and red cape. Essentially, it comes down to what happens when an actor puts on the suit.

Here's the cover shot of Henry Cavill "as" Superman, but he's not in costume, so it's just glamour.

For his big audition, every actor that was up for the coveted role apparently had to shoot a screen test while wearing a replica of the Superman suit worn by Christopher Reeves in the original film. Cavill was instantly terrified and recalls, "All I could think was: Oh, god. They're going to look at me and go 'He's not Superman. Not a chance.' The actor inside me was going: You're not ready! You're not ready!"

Apparently Snyder begged to differ. The director says, "If you can put on that suit and pull it off, that's an awesome achievement. Other actors put that suit on, and it's a joke, even if they're great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go Wow. Okay: This was Superman."

I’ve been waiting for his breakout role for years now, so I’m very pleased with the casting. And I love that he’s British, who cares! This guy seems to have already won over the right people, and I can't wait to see our first shot of him in the suit. Anyway, if anyone still has any doubts about him, just remember again that Batman (Christian Bale) and Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) are both from the UK. Superman: Man of Steele is slated for a December 2012 release date. I’m super excited! Let’s just hope the movie is well directed and written with great special effects and acting. That combo can really make or break a movie. We shall see.
