Tarsem has described his Immortals star Henry Cavill as the “perfect” choice to play Superman.

British actor Cavill was cast in Zack Snyder’s superhero reboot Man of Steel after playing Theseus in the 3D fantasy epic, which is released on Blu-ray and DVD this week.

“I think he’s about the best Superman you could ever have. When I first saw him – this was before I knew he [auditioned] for Superman, because the last Superman had been made a year and a half before Immortals and tanked – I said, ‘This is Clark Kent!'”

“He’s very gentle, manly, just everything was perfect for it. He was so excited when he got it but I didn’t doubt for a second that he wouldn’t get it. Snyder would be lind not to see how right he was for [the role].”

    I may not agree just yet as I grew up idolizing the late Christopher Reeve, however I know for a fact that Henry is a very promising actor and very down to earth which is so important when you’re playing Superman’s alternate ego Clark Kent (I’ve always preferred the endearing Clark Kent over Superman).

    I am so excited to see this movie, it’s like being a child again… looking up and hoping to see Superman fly by. Wishing Henry all the best! šŸ™‚
