Henry Cavill Recalls Getting MAN OF STEEL Role
While doing promotional interviews for his recent film The Cold Light Of Day, Henry Cavill spoke to Cineplex Magazine about getting the call from Zack Snyder, as well as the pressure of being Superman. Read on for more details.
While speaking to Cineplex Magazine about his newest film The Cold Light of Day, Henry Cavill was asked about his upcoming role as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which is set to be released next year.
When asked about getting the role of Superman, Henry Cavill told the magazine about his whereabouts when Zack Snyder decided to let him know that he would play the lead role.
“There’s no better feeling than to get that call. Actually, I was at home when the phone rang. It was an unknown number and I ignored it, then looked down and saw it was Zack Snyder. I was like ‘Oh my God!’ and he’d hung up at that stage. Fortunately, he called back.”
He also discussed the importance of doing Superman's character justice, as quite a number of fans have disliked the most recent interpretations of the character from 2006's Superman Returns (played by Brandon Routh) and last year's Smallville finale (played by Tom Welling).
“It’s important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it’s a great one to have because it’s a wonderful opportunity. I don’t let the pressure get to me because that’s going to hinder my performance and therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman.”
At the end of the interview, Cavill also said that he has no future goals for his film career, but he would love the opportunity to play James Bond, a role he was up for which he ultimately lost to Daniel Craig.
