‘Man of Steel’ star Henry Cavill needs nerves of steel

written by Annie V.VI

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.

SFX235 Preview: Zack Snyder Talks Man Of Steel

written by Annie XXVII.IV

More magazines with Man of Steel feature coming. This time is SFX, coming out this wednesday, May 1st. Here’s the preview and what Zack Snyder has to say about Henry:

There are eight pages of supercoverage of Man Of Steel in the new issue of SFX, out next Wednesday, including exclusive, all-new interviews with the Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman, Henry Cavill and director Zack Snyder (plus Superman Returns director Bryan Singer and his thoughts now on his attempt to reboot Superman).

To convince you that you really need to buy this Mag Of Steel, here’s a taster of Zack Snyder on his leading man:

“God, he’s so Supermanish it’s crazy! There was a telling moment – we put him in the Christopher Reeve costume, because we didn’t have a suit yet, we just had the old spandex suit. He stepped out of the trailer and no one laughed. It’s the difference between being Superman and dressing up like Superman. If I’m dressed up like Superman it’s like a Halloween costume. If you’re Henry it’s your clothes. It’s awesome. Watch the movie and you’re like ‘Holy shit, that’s Superman.’ And it’s not weird or crazy, it’s just cool.”

And here’s Snyder on the approach they took when it came to making you believe a man could fly…

“It’s a more violent experience. It’s raw. It takes effort to do it, and that’s what we were really going for. It’s almost like there’s this kind of Right Stuff quality to it. He’s constantly booming around, accelerating. You think he’s going as fast as he can and then it’s like ‘Yeeaahh!’ He’s always got an extra gear he can use.”

And on recreating Krypton…

“I really wanted my Krypton to be this kind of special place that’s immersive and totally different from Earth, but not unbelievable. And ancient. I really wanted to give this ancient feeling to Krypton. I love technology that’s rusty because it’s so old. It’s so advanced, but it’s so old. That was the kind of world that I tried to create. A dying world that’s ancient and torn apart.”

Man of Steel will open door for more DC Comics superhero movies

written by Annie XIII.IV

When Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, it won’t just mark the arrival of a new Superman — it will also lay the groundwork for the future slate of films based on DC Comics.

Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, spoke to EW for this week’s cover story on the Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced movie, and allowed a peek over the wall of secrecy surrounding their DC Comics plans: “It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, it’s definitely a first step.”
Will Man of Steel include references to other DC heroes headed to the big screen, as Marvel did with its pre-Avengers series of flicks?

“I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world,” he said. “[Nolan’s] Batman was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world they lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of any other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”

We may not have to wait very long for more news. “We’ll announce something in the next several weeks that will hopefully position the DC characters and the movies we’re going to be making,” Robinov said.

So count on Man of Steel to at least hint at other potential heroes. But it may not overtly introduce other characters. In Batman Begins, we didn’t see the Joker, but we saw one of his calling cards. Expect something like that in the Superman movie.
David S. Goyer, who co-wrote The Dark Knight films and the screenplay for Man of Steel says this crew doesn’t like “sequel bait.” “One of the things we dealt with on the Batman films is, Chris dislikes it when you plan something, when you say, ‘I’m going to follow this up in the next film,” Goyer tells EW. “He’s always said put everything you have into this film and then worry about the next film later. That gives the film its own integrity as opposed to being part of an overall plan. So of course the comic book fans, it’s hard not to think about [crossovers] but I, having done three Batman films and worked in that way, it’s definitely the approach we took with Man of Steel.”

When asked if The Dark Knight trilogy of films stands entirely alone, Robinov said: “They do. Or they did,” with a change of tense that should rouse the attention of fanboys everywhere. “Where we go in the future is a whole other conversation.”
However, Robinov was unequivocal when asked if the rumor is true that Nolan will produce a Justice League movie, and bring Christian Bale back with him: “No, no it’s not.” (Nolan’s reps, who have previously declined to comment on that rumor, also confirmed Robinov’s statement and told EW that he definitely wasn’t involved with Justice League. Nolan is currently busy prepping his sci-fi film Interstellar.)

Robinov’s remarks do give fans some compelling clues to parse. So here’s where we veer from facts into speculation:
When Robinov said “They do. Or they did,” I at first took that to mean he was leaving the possibility open to retroactively link-up those three most recent Batman films with upcoming DC-based films. But as I listen to the conversation again, I suspect what he actually meant was that upcoming Batman films wouldn’t necessarily exist in their own closed-off world the way the previous ones did.

But — again — that’s analysis and a little guesswork. Anything is possible. But some things are less likely.
I doubt Nolan’s Dark Knight series will be joined up with the new Superman or Justice League films because Nolan created a story that had a fully realized arc and a definite ending. Reintroducing Bale’s Bruce Wayne in a superhero team-up movie would necessitate answering questions the filmmaker deliberately left open-ended at the conclusion of The Dark Knight Rises.
Might we get, you know … another person in the bat suit? (Sorry to be vague, but we’re avoiding spoilers for the sake of ultra-latecomers). That’s certainly possible — and much more likely if the studio does decide to backtrack and create crossover between the films. But with the ill-conceived Superman Returns in 2006, the Warner Bros. got a taste of what happens when you try to continue the tone of an earlier, beloved series with a different star and filmmaker. Better just to start fresh.
My prediction is that the studio will simply reboot Batman, creating another lucrative series that happens to be connected to Man of Steel and the other movies, while The Dark Knight trilogy will continue to stand alone in its own self-contained universe, forever preserving Nolan’s interpretation while clearing the way for a new one to come along.
We’ll find out sooner or later, but the thing that seems definite is this: Man of Steel will kick down the door for other DC heroes.

So who would you like to see come through that door next?
Personally, I’d like to see them get Wonder Woman right. She’s long overdue.
