Henry Cavill On Christopher Nolan's Involvement With MAN OF STEEL
In the latest issue of F*** Magazine, there's an extensive 10-pg feature with Henry Cavill where the actor discusses his preparation and approach to Man of Steel and the character of Superman. Continue on for a few excerpts from the interview.
The print magazine, F*** has a pretty in-depth interview with actor Henry Cavill concerning Man of Steel in addition to touching on where his acting career began and where he hopes Superman can take it. The quotes below are just a few excerpts from the interview. One of the early topics was the extent of The Dark Knight director and Man of Steel Producer Christopher Nolan's involvement with the project. Cavill says once camera's rolled, it was all Zack Snyder. "Chris Nolan wasn't there during the production itself, although I'm not sure how much work was done behind the scenes. I'm sure Zack had a phone call or two with him, but this is definitely Zack's baby. He was the man in charge, and we created the character together, as opposed to having too many outside influences."
Cavill went on to share that Zack is very much a collaborative director and welcomed suggestions from his actors. "It's a collaborative process and Zach wants us to talk to him about stuff and work with him on his ideas. If you say, 'how about I do this,' he'll say 'I don't know if I like it yet, but give it a shot.'
The director and screenwriter's have been forthcoming about the fact that there's no kryptonite in the film but Cavill says he strived to make Superman vulnerable in other ways. "Again, it comes back to the human element; because he's alone and there's no one like him. That must be incredibly scary and lonely, not to know who you are or what you are, and trying to find out what makes sense. Where's your baseline? What do you draw from? Where do you draw a limit with the power you have? In itself, that's an incredible weakness."
