Henry Cavill’s Body is Being ‘Fine-Tuned and Tweaked’

written by Luciana III.IV

Zack Snyder’s Superman to-be (and Amy Adams’ next co-star) Henry Cavill has already gotten super-hot in order to play a Greek hero in Immortals, but now he has to get hot in a whole new way in order to play Superman. “Cavill spent months on Tarsem’s Immortals, maintaining six percent body fat, and, he jokes, competing with his co-stars to see ‘who had the best abs,'” Movieline reports, following an investigation. “I’m not quite in Immortals shape like I was, but I’ve got the base there again,” Cavill said. “When you see the Immortals shape you’ll see what I mean. We obviously haven’t had the final brief yet [on ‘Superman shape’], it’s going to adapt and change as [my trainer] sees my body adapting to the training. He’ll go, ‘Okay, Henry can do this,’ or, ‘His body will look better like that.’ It’ll be fine-tuned and tweaked as we go along. But I think it’s going to be a different sort of shape from Immortals.” In his defense, Snyder has said he wants an old-school, super-buff Superman, but, man, who knew getting hot in multiple ways could be so complicated?
