Talking to Collider about Immortals, his new film where he plays Theseus, Henry Cavill also shared some more info on his preparation for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. He was asked about source material and if he saw previous films again to get to know the character better. More below.



"I avoided watching anything which was someone else’s interpretation of the source material. I didn’t go back to the movies and watch them. I didn’t go back to the TV series and watch them. I didn’t want to take that and have that influence my interpretation and my performance of the character. Where the character truly belongs and where the character truly comes from is not from the movies or the TV shows; it’s from the comic books. So I went straight to the comic books and had stacks of them and just read and read and read and read and read. I enjoyed so much learning about the character in such a dense manner. The comic books were my source of material; the TV shows and movies were someone else’s interpretation and so I left that to them."
