Guest passenger in the 12C today @fosgoodwood is Henry Cavill, the new star of the Superman films. #GREAT
Oh, hello gorgeous! Nice to see you!
According to Vogue UK, Henry attended past Saturday the Lovebrunch, in London.
Held at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, it combined the laid-back atmosphere of a daylight gathering with great music, barbecue delicacies and a host of cocktails to put guests in the party mood. And it seems Vogue wasn’t the only one enamoured with the afternoon’s delights – we spotted Brit actor and soon-to-be Superman Henry Cavill also in attendance.
Henry Cavill is still working hard as the eponymous man of steel in Zack Snyder’s new Superman film, but the Brit star must be enjoying a little downtime, because he’s eying his next project, period epic The Great Wall.
Edward Zwick, of The Last Samurai, is already in place as director, having written the screenplay with Marshall Herskovitz. It’s based on a story by World War Z scribes Max Brooks and Thomas Tull.
Plot details are light, but Variety report that the film will look into the mystery behind how China’s Great Wall was built in the 5th Century BC.
No word yet on who Cavill would play, though we assume he’ll get to fling a few fists in the process. With Zwick behind the camera we should definitely expect some action, not to mention beautiful period furnishings.
Cavill may still be pumping iron as Superman, but we won’t get to see the finished film until Man Of Steel opens on 14 June 2013.
It was just released that Henry will be one of the 2012 BAFTA Awards presenters this Sunday. YAY!
