Henry Cavill wears Superman suit with confidence

This week’s EW contains the first photos of Henry Cavill “as” Superman — if you call wearing a T-shirt dressing as Superman. According to the story, the first time he wore the duds, the handsome Englishman was able to overcome the inherent silliness of the panties and cape look:

Cavill’s audition, which included shooting a screen test wearing a replica of Christopher Reeve’s once impressive, now dated Superman suit. “If you can put on that suit and pull it off,” says Snyder, ‘that’s an awesome achievement.” Cavill was feeling less than super in the moment, at least about his ability to fill out the costume: He had just finished shooting a film with Bruce Willis called The Cold Light Of Day, and the part required to him to shed the impressive abs of steel and muscle tone he had put on for the movie he made right before that, the forthcoming mythic fantasy Immortals. As an assistant helped to him put on the Super-suit, Cavill 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!” Snyder saw something — or rather someone — different. “He walked out, and no one laughed,” says the director. “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.’”


The issue contains much more of the new generation of superhero actors, including Ryan Reynolds’ confession that “I looked like Dick Van Dyke.”

If you say so, Ryan.

  1. I’m hoping they still use Lex Luthor. I know he’s been used way to much in the movies, but he’s a huge part of the Superman mythos.

  2. Superman SUCKS!
    He’s useless & stupid.(A sore, needless & unnecessary loser like him is gonna ended up as a villain)
    Superman is scum, moron & arrogant asshole. (Their brainless fans, actors, etc are sore losers with low IQ)
    All of his comics, films, cartoons, etc are all shit, all dump, rubbish & garbage.
    He must be removed from this face of this planet.

  3. Since they are going to have different actors for the upcoming Justice League movie, I think that they should bring Brandon Routh back as Superman/Clark Kent in JLA since he didn’t get the role for the reboot. I was worried at first about a new actor for the Superman reboot but Henry deserves a chance and he does look a lot like Superman, he gets my support for the new Superman.
