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, â€œAll I could think was: Oh, god. Theyâ€™re going to look at me and go â€˜Heâ€™s not Superman. Not a chance.â€™ The actor inside me was going: Youâ€™re not ready! Youâ€™re not ready!â€
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, â€œOther actors put that suit on, and itâ€™s a joke, even if theyâ€™re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go â€˜Wow.â€™ Okay: This was Superman.â€™â€
Can't wait to see him! But who will play Lois Lane?
