Tarsem has described his Immortals star Henry Cavill as the “perfect” choice to play Superman.
British actor Cavill was cast in Zack Snyder’s superhero reboot Man of Steel after playing Theseus in the 3D fantasy epic, which is released on Blu-ray and DVD this week.
“I think he’s about the best Superman you could ever have. When I first saw him – this was before I knew he [auditioned] for Superman, because the last Superman had been made a year and a half before Immortals and tanked – I said, ‘This is Clark Kent!'”
“He’s very gentle, manly, just everything was perfect for it. He was so excited when he got it but I didn’t doubt for a second that he wouldn’t get it. Snyder would be lind not to see how right he was for [the role].”
Immortals is out on 3D Blu-ray, Triple Play Blu-ray, DVD and download from March 5, 2012.
