Henry talks about his first time in the Superman suit

written by Luciana III.IV

Motion Captured – One of the benefits of being at an event like WonderCon is that you sit down with people who are involved in some of the most-anticipated projects for genre fans, and you get to be among the first people to talk about those projects with them.

I’ll be moderating the panel for Tarsem Singh’s new film “Immortals” later today, and the star of that film is Henry Cavill, who, of course, has been cast to play the lead role in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Superman.”

Cavill is a guy who has been on the cusp of superstardom for a while now. He was almost James Bond. He was almost Bryan Singer’s Superman. He even read for Batman at one point. And yet, in each of those moments, someone else ended up playing the part. Now, finally, on the strength of his work in “The Tudors” and the early buzz around his performance in “Immortals,” it feels like Henry is having that moment.

Sitting down with him today, most of the conversation had to do with “Immortals,” but we did take the time to talk about stepping into the suit of one of the most recognizable characters on Earth. My impression of Cavill after spending a few minutes chatting with him is that he’s a dynamic choice for the role.

We spoke a bit about Superman during our time together, and while we’ll have our full “Immortals” conversation for you later, we wanted to share the “Superman” stuff with you immediately, since there’s such intense curiosity about who he is and what he’s going to bring to the role.

Despite a cell phone mishap and me managing to scare the hell out of Cavill about his appearance on the panel in the afternoon, I think it was a good chat, and I find myself much more relaxed now about the choice that Snyder and Nolan made to hire Cavil.

I already knew that with today’s technology, we will believe a man can fly. What’s far more important is believing in him as a person, and I think in Cavill, Warner Bros. has finally found the man for the job.
