HENRY CAVILL TALKS SUPERMAN
For over seventy years, the comic book hero Superman, has been a part of pop culture. Whether it was on television or the big screen, each generation had a different and beloved actor playing the role of Superman, from the 1950′s television series starring George Reeves, to the 1970′s to 1980′s Superman films played by the late Christopher Reeves, to this decade’s Brandon Routh. Now, Henry Cavill, who is the new Superman, is currently filming Man of Steel, the reboot of the Superman film franchise.
Cavill has a wealth of materials from which to research the character of Superman. However, he told us that his research comes from the original source of Superman where it all started, the comic books. Cavill also told us that every day he is filming, he is learning something new about the iconic character, and when it’s all said and done, in twenty years he hopes his portrayal of the Man of Steel will be remembered like those who played Superman in the past.
