Henry Cavil is now getting all the superhero attention now that he's selected to be the Man of Steel. (For the time being). In this week's Entertainment Weekly, director Zack Snyder tells the mag:
“[Cavill] walked out, and no one laughed. Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go ‘Wow. Okay: This was Superman.’”
