More From Henry Cavill On MAN OF STEEL And Finally Getting To Be Superman
Man Of Steel actor Henry Cavill shared a few words with The Telegraph concerning his role in Zack Snyder's latest superhero film. Hit the jump for more as he gives his thoughts on his journey in the film industry, and wanting to play Kal-El since Superman Returns.
We all know British actor Henry Cavill is to grace the screen as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, but not everyone knows how he found his way to starring in one of the biggest movies in CBM history. While speaking to The Telegraph, Cavill reveals how his journey as an actor began, comparing himself to Superman's civilian alter-ego, Clark Kent. "As an actor I spent from the age of 17 travelling the world trying to find work and to find out if I was even right for this kind of job. So trying to find my space in this industry was very much the same kind of thing that Clark Kent experienced. Over time we become more comfortable in our own skin and so we discover more about ourselves.
As we know, Cavill was in the running to play Supes before Brandon Routh donned the red cape, when McG was still trying to get his Superman project off the ground. "I was wandering around these studios many, many years ago hoping to be part of the Superman story and then the movie never happened. And now, years later, I get the opportunity again and because I had been there before I had a bit more of an insight and I feared it less. Catch Man of Steel in theaters June 14th!
