Henry Cavill Calls MAN OF STEEL's Epic Destruction "The Lesser Of Two Evils"
There's been some controversy surrounding how Superman took General Zod down in Man of Steel and equally as much about the destruction and casualties their battle in Metropolis resulted in. Hit the jump to check out Henry Cavill's take on why that was, "the lesser of two evils."
There's no denying just how impressive the final action scenes of Man of Steel were when Superman and Zod faced off in Metropolis in a climatic battle for the fate of the planet. However, the widespread destruction (which obviously resulted in hundreds or thousands of deaths) has been criticised by some, especially as it appeared as if Superman was doing little to help save those people. Well, star Henry Cavill has now summed up his thoughts on the matter pretty perfectly!

"I don't think it was intentional. I'm just saying. If two super human beings were to go head-to-head and you have a choice between trying to take this guy down or leaving him be -- he'll destroy the planet as opposed to part of Metropolis -- and I think it's about minimizing as much damage as possible by choosing the lesser of two evils."
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
