Was actually watching this digital spy interview with Shannon earlier, and he's asked about Cavill. But because he'd only done one scene with him at the time, he basically said he couldnt comment.
I kind of respect that. He could have easily just said 'He's going to be amazing' or something, but he didn't. He said he was going to find out.
And then AFTER he actually worked with him and had a chance to form his own opinion, he's said in more recent interviews how good he thought he was.
Here's the interview anyway: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/n...ry-cavill.html
Superman: Don't be afraid.
Lois: I'm not. Helicopters, danger, go, go, go! Then we'll talk.
