To borrow a phrase from a certain wall-crawling rival, Henry Cavill understands that with great power comes great responsibility.
The British actor, who is prepping to put on the most iconic cape in comic book history for director Zack Snyder’s “Superman” reboot, knows that the role is more than just a big career boost.
Since accepting the role of the world’s most famous superhero, Cavill has largely remained coy about any specific details surrounding Snyder’s take on the character – but he did tell PopcornBiz that he was committed more to the role of Kal-El/Clark Kent than to the fame that inevitably comes with it.
“I’m treating it like I would treat anything,” says Cavill. “I love reading historical fiction and fantasy books, and if I got chosen to play those roles, I have such a connection with those characters that I have an in-depth knowledge of how they would be made into a real person. The opportunity is the same with Superman. It’s absolutely fantastic because I’ve done all my reading and I’m really into the character.”
