henrycavewspman217.jpg Henry Cavill covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, and the Superman star chats about trying on the famous S suit and nabbing every actor's dream role.

Cavill had to shoot a screen test in the costume, and he was worried he might not fill it out, as he recently dropped a bunch of weight for the thriller The Cold Light Of Day. When an assistant helped him into the suit, Cavill says, “All I could think was: Oh, god. They’re going to look at me and go ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’ The actor inside me was going: You’re not ready! You’re not ready!”

However, director Zac Snyder knew the Tudors hunk was the man for the job as soon as he saw him walk out of the dressing room. Snyder says, “Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go ‘Wow.’ Okay: This was Superman.’”
