The Smallville covers are because of legal issues (it's very possible Welling doesn't want his likeness used). The artist has just given him a general Superman face. It's still a Welling likeness for interiors though.

So covers aren't Welling likeness but the insides are?

If Welling is botherred about that just another thing that p**es me off about him. Don't get me wrong I loved him on Smallville but his unwillingness to put the suit on and been dead against the Superman thing in general annoys me. He's said before he was open to the Superman role but I feel that was just talk. Its a privelege to play Superman and if Welling never wanted anything to do with it he should never have been cast in the first place.

Welling signed away his likeness years ago. They can draw it around whomever they want.

Hmmm so why the different look? Wonder what the decision is unless it wasn't intentional and its just the way the drawings came out?

Brian Miller, writer of Smallville Season 11 and EP of Smallville has said that Welling's likeness (Superman was the topic, but it might be every character who appeared on the show) cannot be used on covers due to legal issues.

A tie-in comic starts the day the show does. So, not counting the Comic-Con issue, then probably October 10th. In the main universe? Hopefully soon. Because current Green Arrow sucks.

I thought he always had a bad attitude about the part also and it did have an effect on how I viewed the show. He should be thankful that he had the part. It's not like he's done anything else of note or is even in consideration for anything.

Isn't the DCnU GA based on Justin Hartley's likeness?

You know I like Welling really I do but I totally agree with you. Been Superman is a privelege you don't want it you shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it.

The suit kind of looks like his. But he isn't drawn like him nor does he have Hartley's shiny velvety womanly lips.

Just finished Cold Light Day and it wasn't as bad as people made out. It wasn't good either but I've seen far worse films, acting was pretty poor mostly but heck its that sort of film. Henrys accent was mostly fine throughout and his acting was ok but nothing special. But all in all not as bad as people made out, good action.

I've yet to see Cold Light of Day, it was tempting seeing it on the shelves of Sainsburys but I resisted my curiosity.

I have just however borrowed my brothers copy of The Tudors season one, specifically to check out Cavill, as I'd only seen him in Immortals. He is good in it, his character exudes confidence, and I can see that confidence transitioning over to MoS. I hope his role grows in the next few series, I need to get my hands on a copy. He does all he can within the role, considering its very much Jonathan Rhys Meyers' show - he's fantastic. The whole cast is, there's not a weak link amongst them.

In fact I'd argue it's the opposite of Cold Light of Day (from what I understand). By which I mean, The Tudor's production and script is obviously A grade stuff - every actor rises to the occasion, brings their A game, and people know their watching a damn good show. Much like TCLoD seems the opposite, the material giving the actors little to go on, so no one can really bring anything special to the table, performance wise. It's this reason most of us aren't getting worried over Cavill and his MoS prospects.

Great post

I wouldn't recommend watching Cold Light of Day to anyone. I know that might seem weird after my above post but some people are acting like its the worst film ever made and its not. Its a poor movie but I have seen far far worse.

New cool interview with Henry

Quote:
MAN OF STEEL: An Interview With Henry Cavill

Just prior to the release of Tarsem Singh’s Immortals and while Man of Steel was in production, Ed Gross was able to sit down with actor Henry Cavill for this exclusive interview in which he discusses both and the way that his life is changing. What follows is a transcript of that interview.

Thanks to Zack Snyder casting him as Superman in the currently-in-production Man of Steel, actor Henry Cavill has become something of a household name, which only helped to enhance his work as Theseus in Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. It’s a pretty heady time for Cavill, whose biggest claim to fame up to this point has been a co-starring role in Showtime’s The Tudors as wel l as near misses on such iconic roles as James Bond, Batman and Superman (the McG, pre-Superman Returns version). His life is changing (likely forever) and his every move captured on the Internet by paparazzi and fans, yet as we discovered in this exclusive interview, the 29-year-old Brit seems to be handling it pretty much as one would hope from a guy solidifying his position as one of cinema’s newest portrayer of larger-than-life heroes.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: I remember when I was on the set of Immortals, you made mention of “rumblings” that things could be happening in your career. Could you have imagined that all of this – with Man of Steel – was the rumbling you were referring to?
HENRY CAVILL: [laughs] I could not have imagined it. No. And I’m very happy that it’s happening.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: Why wouldn’t you be? At the same time, I wonder how you’re coping with all of the attention. Seriously, how many actors are having Internet debates about the size of their… codpiece?
HENRY CAVILL: Is it hard to deal with? Not really. If I were to take everyone’s comments to heart, then of course I think it would be very hurtful. There’s also wonderful stuff out there, too, so I’d be somewhere between having an enormous ego and a very small, crushed one [laughs]. It’s all part of the entertainment. It’s going to happen and people are going to talk, which is great. If they’re talking, it means they’re being entertained one way or the other, so carry on!

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: I just think it’s got to be hard, given the fact that we’re living in an era where every move is dissected, so I kind of wonder how someone copes with that kind of microscope.
HENRY CAVILL: It is a microscope and you’ve just got to remember that the people who are really important to you in your life, when they’re inspecting you under a microscope and finding flaws, that’s a really bad thing. But for everyone else, they’re fully entitled to their opinions and they can fly away, they can troll on the Internet forums and do whatever they want, and good for them!

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: What is the comparison between what you envisioned for yourself early on in your career and everything that’s happening?
HENRY CAVILL: It’s enormously rewarding and very gratifying and a real boost to my self-belief and trust in myself and my abilities. As a young lad, you think, “I’d love to be an actor and play these wonderful roles and these big characters and entertain,” and all of this. It took 11 years and I was very fortunate that I had all the right opportunities and it’s a wonderful feeling to have things work out as I really hoped they would. It’s great and I couldn’t be happier.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: But did you really imagine these larger than life characters?
HENRY CAVILL: I had a very bold imagination and still do. I have never set limits on myself, although obviously with these particular roles there was no one thing where I said, “I want to play that, I want to play this.” I just wanted to go for the very big things. From the very beginning I didn’t want to settle for small stuff; I wanted to aim high and go down in a blaze of glory if I didn’t make it and try something else. But it’s paid off so far and I’m enjoying it. Everything’s an experience and a journey and an adventure, and if you’re not enjoying it, what’s the point? So far it’s been great. Sure, it’s been terrible at points as well, but I’ve tried to take everything I could from those terrible, difficult moments I’ve had and it’s all part of the journey.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: On the Immortals set you had commented that getting the opportunity to audition for James Bond, Batman, Superman (the McG version) actually encouraged your choice to be an actor.
HENRY CAVILL: My feeling was that if these people who had been doing this for years noticed something in me and said, “Okay, we’re willing to put him and another guy up for the role and that’s it,” then there’s got to be something there they’re seeing. That was certainly a real confidence booster. Although it wasn’t anything of material value and acting is a very intangible skill, you never know when it’s going to happen or if it’s going to happen. It’s not like doing many repetitions of an exercise where once you’ve done it, you know you can do it. Acting is different. It’s not like that; you don’t know if it’s going to happen as well or as powerfully or as strongly as it’s happened in the past. So when you hear people like that say, “Yes, you’ve got something which is very special” – they may not necessarily say it directly, but in their actions in putting you up next to the last two guys – that in itself is the medal. It’s a Silver Medal, it’s not the Gold, which is getting the role, but it’s still a medal that makes you want to work that much harder and go for the gold.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: A kind of touching thing you said is that with so many military people in your family, there was a tendency for you to be looked upon as a “soft” actor and there was something gratifying about being able to show them the kind of work you actually do get to do.
HENRY CAVILL: Well, we’re all proud of each other and would be even if I was working doing something else and I passed an exam to get in there, or got a promotion, they would be just as proud of me. We’re family first, and we’re just exceptionally proud and happy that we’re doing the things we want to do in life. Of course, the benefit is that they’ll probably get more expensive presents at Christmas [laughs].

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: The roles of Theseus and Superman have required you to transform physically, and I wonder what the transformative result of that is on you emotionally or psychologically when you walk on a set.
HENRY CAVILL: That’s a very good question…. The mindset when you change your body physically, and your ability physically, there’s more of a self-belief. There is more of a security in yourself. It’s quite a unique feeling when you have a moment and you’re rested, and you’re not exhausted and everything else, you think, “I can do this stuff; I’m probably in the top 10 of physically fit people in this room,” and that’s a very good feeling. Of course, someone like me I always keep myself in check, because it means I’m going to continue to push hard. I never allow myself to spread into an arrogance, because that, I believe, and there are people who say otherwise, will hold me back as opposed to help me advance. When it comes to playing a role like Theseus or the other role [laughs], it does help an awful lot, because the environment around you behaves differently. The people perceive you differently, and that helps you be the character which you’re trying to be. We are indeed a product of those around us, because we often behave in response to the way we’re treated. When people are looking at you in that sort of way and going, “Whoa! He looks kind of dangerous” or “That guy looks like he can protect me,” it gives you that extra bit of something that helps you play a character in a more realistic, effective way.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: I remember reading that when Christopher Reeve played that other character — I’ll play along – when he came on set, after having packed on the muscle and putting on the costume – he conveyed the sense that he was that person. It sounds like a bit of that in what you’re saying.
HENRY CAVILL: I agree, although I think that comes down to the performer as well. There’s more than just the physicality to roles like Theseus or playing Supes. There’s something far deeper. Anyone who is willing to put the work in and have that willpower can be in that kind of physical shape, but the question is do they give off that something else that makes them different or special? That’s up to a performer to work out how to give people that impression. That’s something different. Physicality helps, but there’s something else; there’s a way that you make people feel that physicality can enhance but not necessarily be the cause of.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: Were things like Greek mythology and comic books a part of your life growing up?
HENRY CAVILL: I’ve always loved reading historical fiction. I remember a book when I was a very young boy which was all about Greek mythology – it was a collection of short stories. I loved reading those and looking at the pictures. That sort of world – Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome – the tales of warriors and battles and warlords and conquerors and empires… all of that, I loved it! Although there was no dedicated study in any one direction, I loved the worlds and those stories, and to play them now is incredibly exciting. It’s the kind of thing which I’ve always wanted to do, so I’m a very happy camper right now.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: The character of Superman is often criticized for being the big blue boy scout and very tough to make interesting. What is your feeling when you hear that sort of thing ?
HENRY CAVILL: I don’t think people know the character well enough. He’s a very interesting character. Because he’s always trying to do the right thing, doesn’t necessarily make him boring. He’s conflicted in his own ways and I’m speaking strictly just from source material when it comes from the comic books. What he has to go through is enormously difficult and if people just really think what it would be like, you’d realize that there’s a lot more to him than being a good guy. A lot more. There’s a lot to the man. When people say it’s tough to make him interesting, they just need to read some of the right stuff and they’ll see there’s a lot of very interesting things going on in that guy’s head.

MEDIA GEEK NETWORK: Rather than just playing a role in a movie, is there a different feeling when you find yourself part of this 70 plus year history of this character?
HENRY CAVILL: It’s a wonderful feeling and there’s certainly an aspect of it that could be an enormous amount of pressure which could end up affecting me, but I try and focus more on the honor or it and the excitement of being the person who was chosen to take up the mantle. It’s a wonderful opportunity, it’s exciting, and it’s so much fun [laughs].

This is a good point. I have always felt the Superman man I grew up with and loved in the comics would totally blow over the GA. Unfortunately....that Superman is seldom seen.

You know, there are a number of things that I've seen from MOS that I'm not the biggest fan of...but Goddamn did they nail it with Cavill. Playing the role of Superman is two-fold: on the screen and off the screen. Cavill, just like Reeve and even Routh, is just so awesome and genuine.

For me Routh was a wooden lil' prick, who couldn't drum any charisma. The only likability he has was in attempting to act like C. Reeve.

I just hope Cavill is abe to put his stamp on the role and bring Supes to a new generation. That's all I really want.

I just hope Cavill is abe to put his stamp on the role and bring Supes to a new generation. That's all I really want.
The problem with Routh was that he embodied Superman more off the screen than on. In interviews and through public work he was everything a Superman actor should be. On screen, well, he was working with a script that wasn't as good as it should have been while simultaneously being slightly pigeonholed with his performance.
