Is Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill right for Superman role?
Is Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill right for Superman role?

We still have over a year to wait yet until we can cast our eyes over the Zack Snyder directed Supeman movie Man of Steel. However, there has already been a fair amount of promotional material and also a fair amount of criticism for Superman actor Henry Cavill.

To be fair, there is always criticism coming from someone when it comes to the lead role of a major movie but it seems that Superman fans are rather angered by the choice to cast Henry Cavill as Superman in the Man of Steel. In fact, some fans even feel that it was wrong to get rid of Brandon Routh, especially since he wanted to reprise the role.
 
One disgruntled fan explained, “As Superman Returns wasn’t that long ago, I was a little pi**ed that they didn’t keep Brandon Routh. I thought he played the part really well in the last film and didn’t need to be changed. Especially not for some ugly dude that looks like he’s in his 40s, Henry Cavill is totally wrong for the part.”
 
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder recently admitted that it was between Henry Cavill and True Blood actor Joe Manganiello and it seems that the latter would have been the favourite among Superman fans. However, Henry Cavill has yet to prove himself and, given the chance, could win some fans over. We will just have to wait and see.
 
Man of Steel is set to be released on June 14, 2013.
Man of Steel movie to feature other DC superheroes
Man of Steel movie to feature other DC superheroes

It has been reported that the Zack Snyder directed Superman movie, Man of Steel, is set to feature some other DC superheroes, as Warner Bros. begin their movie to making more and more stand alone DC movies.

The plan is to slowly introduce some of the DC superheroes into some of the current DC movies to give fans a glimpse of the characters before giving them their very own movie. It has not yet been revealed who will be appearing in Man of Steel but it is rumoured that The Flash and Wonder Woman may stop by.
 
However, it has also been suggested that, since the Man of Steel movie is not due out until next year, a new Batman will be cast and will make a small cameo in the movie. This way the new Batman actor will be recognisable to fans before going on to carry their own Batman movie.
 
The likelihood is that the Batman cameo appearance in Man of Steel will take place after the end credits but the rumours of The Flash and Wonder Woman claim that they will appear in the actual movie. Who knows, maybe both will happen.

Now most of you probably already know about this because I do believe that it is actually old news but I have only just become aware of it. Apparently, a while back, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder claimed that he would love to make a Batman movie.

However, don’t get your hopes up that it will be any time soon, as he would have his sights set on making a Batman movie based on the story The Dark Knight Returns. This is the story of an aging Batman in his 50s, coming out of retirement to take on Harvey Dent and his new evil gang of mutants.
 
Snyder is quoted as saying, “Frank’s Dark Knight is a 50-year-old Batman. The reality is that Batman, as a franchise at Warner Brothers, is doing pretty good; people have heard of it. Chris is killing it to death. It will be only 20 years from now, and it’ll be Christian Bale in his 50s. By then, Chris will be over it and I’ll roll up and be like, ‘Let’s make a Dark Knight movie!’”
 
The possibility of Zack Snyder directing a Batman movie would have many fans excited, although many will also claim that nobody will ever do a better job than Christopher Nolan. However, in 20 years time, a Zack Snyder Batman movie could be just what is needed. We will have to just wait and see. Arriba!!

Zack Snyder reveals why Henry Cavill was cast as Superman in Man of Steel

Man of Steel directed Zack Snyder has revealed why he cast Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, aka Superman, in his big screen adaptation. Zack has admitted that it was ultimately came down to two people, Henry Cavill and True Blood actor Joe Manganiello but Henry just had the edge.

Snyder explained, “Henry’s just … I love Joe too, by the way. Really he was the only other guy I was thinking of, to be honest, other than Henry. In the end, I think Henry just has this innocence, too [in addition to the physicality required for the role].”
 
He added, “He has both, which is tricky. Superman needs the teeniest bit of that. Not to be overt, but you like it to be there ever so slightly. I mean, he grew up in Kansas, that’s just true, so you need a little of that [innocence].”
 
The Zack Snyder directed Man of Steel stars, along with Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Michael Shannon as General Zod and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. Man of Steel is set to be released on June 14, 2013.

There is still well over a year until the new Superman movie Man of Steel is released but that has not stopped Warner Bros. from preparing for a sequel already. There is no telling whether Man of Steel will be a success or not but Warner Bros. are playing it safe.

It appears that Warner Bros. are getting a script in place ready for a possibly sequel, so that they can get Man of Steel 2 started as soon as possible, once Man of Steel proves to be a financial success. However, there are no real details on the Man of Steel sequel.
 
It has been confirmed that ideas for the sequel are being put in place and a script is likely to get underway once they have a solid idea of a story. Yet we do not know who has been lined up to pen the screenplay and it is unclear whether the cast and crew of Man of Steel will return for the sequel.
 
The Zack Snyder directed Man of Steel is set to star Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon and Laurence Fishburne. Man of Steel is currently due to be released on June 14, 2013, so do not expect to see a Man of Steel sequel until around 2015.

Zack Snyder talks Man of Steel

The latest Superman movie, Man of Steel, is set to hit the big screen next year and the director of Man of Steel, Zack Snyder has been talking a little about the movie. Zack claims that, because of the movie Watchmen, he has been able to make a Superman movie that he really wants.

Snyder explained, “I love making genre movies because genre movies have the potential to be the biggest movie. Watchmen is a crash course on the rules of the why of superheroes, so for me now, to go and do Superman it’s like ‘Ok, I got that, I know why.’”
 
He added, “Now I can make, I think, a Superman movie that gets at him and makes him relevant and you can care about him and be something that you wanna see and not go ‘That’s a joke, he’s got his glasses on so you can’t recognise him.’”
 
With that said, it appears that Zack Snyder may be looking for a different way for Clark Kent to hide his Superman secret, rather than just a pair of glasses. Man of Steel will see Henry Cavill in the lead role, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Russell Crowe as Jor-El.
 
Man of Steel is set to be released on June 14, 2013.

Michael Shannon is set to appear on the big screen as General Zod, in Man of Steel next year but he has admitted that he does not feel worthy of playing the role. Michael claims that he can never live up to the standard of Terence Stamp, who played the same character in the 1980 movie Superman 2.

Shannon explained, “I find that pretty intimidating, honestly. I think he pretty much nailed it. My girlfriend [actress Kate Arrington], had it on. She was watching it out of curiosity. And I saw it and said: ‘You’ve got to turn it off. I can’t watch that. I’m not worthy!’”
 
Michael Shannon recently revealed how he does not believe that General Zod is a nasty person but is, in fact, just doing his job. Michael Shannon has previously admitted that he does not take his fame for granted, as he is fully aware that it can be gone in the blink of an eye.

Michael Shannon is set to appear on the big screen next year as General Zod, in the Zack Snyder directed Superman movie Man of Steel. Michael has been discussing his rise to fame and has admitted that he is not taking it for granted, as he knows how quickly it can all vanish.

Shannon explained, “Well, it had to happen eventually, right? Either that or fade into obscurity! It’s good to do something like this. It’s good to take on that kind of responsibility, be a grown up, be able to feel that pressure and be OK with it. And, let’s face it, it’s not neuroscience!”
 
He added, “I don’t see what more could be happening. Put it that way. Unless I receive a medal from the President! But you’re always reluctant to get too proud of your accomplishments in this business. It can all go south in the blink of an eye.”
 
Michael Shannon will star alongside Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White in the Zack Snyder directed Superman movie Man of Steel. Man of Steel is set to be released worldwide on June 14, 2013.

Henry Cavill the best Superman ever in Man of Steel?

It has been claimed that Henry Cavill, who is set to play Clark Kent aka Superman in Man of Steel, is possibly the best Superman that anybody could ever have. The claim was made by Mirror Mirror director Tarsem Singh, who worked with Henry Cavill on the movie Immortals and Tarsem claims that he has always believed that Henry would be perfect for the role.

Singh explained, “I think he’s about the best Superman you could ever have. When I first saw him - this was before I knew he auditioned for Superman, because the last Superman had been made a year and a half before Immortals and tanked - I said, ‘This is Clark Kent!’” He also added that Zack Snyder would have to be “blind not to see how right he was for the role”.
 
Tarsem continued, “He’s very gentle, manly, just everything was perfect for it. He was so excited when he got it but I didn’t doubt for a second that he wouldn’t get it.” There is still quite a long wait before we get to see Henry Cavill on the big screen as Superman in the movie Man of Steel, which is released on June 14, 2013.

We have still got another year to wait until we get to final experience the latest reboot of the Superman franchise, with the Zack Snyder directed movie Man of Steel. However, with the movie already well into filming, there has already been quite a fair amount of Man of Steel material available for fans to cast their eyes over, especially pictures from the set of the Superman movie.

Now, Henry Cavill, who is the latest actor to take on the role of Superman in Man of Steel, has revealed how much effort went into his diet to help to get him into shape for the role of a lifetime. Henry revealed his diet, saying, “I’m on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve got to keep your hunger levels going.”
 
That is quite some diet when you consider that if you compare a diet, 5000 calories is approximately double the recommended daily guideline amount for the average male. However, Henry Cavill needed to bulk up and he worked out so hard that his body needed the extra intake. You can see Henry Cavill in Man of Steel when it is released on June 14, 2013.
