MTV’s Josh Horowitz got to meet the “Man of Steel” himself, Henry Cavill, at WonderCon this year, and he definitely proved himself as the world’s next Superman. Though he says he might not be feeling the pressure just yet, we have a feeling that that will change soon enough.

7 April 2011   Comments Off on Tarsem Singh talks about Henry casting for “Immortals”

If you didn’t know who British actor Henry Cavill was six months ago, you do now thanks to the 27-year-old actor landing the coveted Man of Steel role in Zack Snyder‘s “upcoming Superman” reboot.

And while it seems like a no-brainer move now—Cavill has the looks, chops and build; he had tested for Christopher Nolan‘s “Batman Begins” and Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns” and seemed poised to eventually score one of these plum roles—the actor’s name carried very little weight at the time and to hear the producers of the upcoming “Immortals” tell it, confidence in the actor leading their swords and sandals fantasy epic wasn’t exactly high.

“Henry tested for us and then we stayed with it,” Marc Canton, one of the producers of “Immortals,” said this past weekend at WonderCon of their lead acting choice. “There was a lot of debate about him, because we got pushed back many months in making the movie and eventually we went and we stayed the course [with Henry].”

7 April 2011   Comments Off on Henry Cavill And Luke Evans Talk ‘Immortals’

Relativity Media recently offered audiences their first glimpse at “Immortals,” a stylish, mythological adventure directed by filmmaker Tarsem (“The Fall,” “The Cell”). Before Tarsem and producer Mark Canton (“300”) screened a few minutes of footage from the coming movie, Speakeasy sat down with two of the film’s stars, Henry Cavill (who’s set to play Superman in Zack Snyder’s franchise reboot “Man of Steel”) and actor Luke Evans, for a conversation about the challenges of bringing new life to old myths.

How tough is it to connect with the grandiosity of stories about the gods, and make sure everything also feels immediate and relatable to contemporary audiences?

Luke Evans: I think as an actor you have to be able to relate to the role before you take the job, whether it be a god or whatever. You have to see something in your character that you can relate to. And I’m sure Henry did the same thing, but I look at the role Henry played, and I can relate to what he goes through; he has a struggle on his hands – he lost his mother, he finds his feet, he falls in love, all of these things, they’re human feelings. So I can relate to that, and what I had to do with Zeus is make people understand that this god wasn’t just a [guy throwing] lightning bolts, he had feelings and he cared about these people on earth, and that was my responsibility, to prove that in what I did on screen.
