Yeah, totally. And the speech he delivers in the Fortress gets me choked up every time. "They can be a great people Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way..."

He was probably reading friggin' cue cards as he spoke those lines but his delivery is still amazing.

Indeed. And I think it happened at the right time in his career. If he got cast years ago when he was younger and more inexperienced and under a different director I don't think he would be as great of a Superman as he seems to be now.

Yeah even though Cavill was known as 'The unluckiest man Hollywood has ever seen' for a long, long time, I think he lucked out with Superman. I wouldn't have wanted him any sooner than now. It's like, perfect for him.

Tmz has put Cavill on their radar, that third trailer really set the world ablaze freaking incredible what one beautiful trailer can do. Oh and no I don't watch tmz I googled Cavill and found the video by accident.

I particularly like this interview with Henry. Such a charming guy. I hope he gets a lot more movie roles with his success as Superman (and hopefully no more crappy ones like Cold Light of Day). A little early to promote MOS on late night talk shows don't you think (this vid is from March)?

It's so cool how he met Russel Crowe before he became an actor. I really hope we get a bunch of interviews from the cast coming up.

I'm just hoping his whole performance was as good, as charming as that little snippet we see in the trailer.

Posted on YT recently. But I think it goes back to when Cavill was promoting Immortals.

Ahhh I have heard the Crowe story before but I didn't know it was from that. I'm sure in the next month he'll start showing up on talk shows etc

One thing I wanted to say about Cavill is that I'm so impressed with the shape he got in! I just recently got back in to exercising so I really appreciate the work he must have put in.

I'm not sure pairing Cavill talking about revealing himself with pictures of him with children is the best idea.

By the way, speaking of that scene, did anyone else notice how much bigger Cavill seemed in that scene during the trailer than in the set photos? I'm not saying Henry is CGI enhanced or anything, just that when you see him in motion, you get a far better sense of his size and weight. The guy has this amazing freight train sort of presence when he is running shirtless on the shoreline. Very Superman, looks like he has the power of a locomotive in my opinion.

I wonder if Tom Hardy as "Bane" and Cavill used some sort of steroids to bulk up so fast...Hope not.

This is pretty much been happening on this board for the past few years.

People are already undermining what Chris Reeve brought to the role, all to big up Henry Cavill. It's as if we couldn't have more than one actor capture the role of Clark Kent/Superman.

Hardy, good chance of yes. All that back acne he had on set is indicative of AAS use. Cavill, I don't think so. First off, no evidence of back acne and he didn't seem to be retaining water like people usually do when they cycle. Evans and Hemsworth had more of that sort of look in my opinion. However, despite what the media tells you, there is noting really wrong with steroid use within reason. All of the side effects were vastly exaggerated in order to support their criminalization due to moral outrage over their use in sports. Just like how we know now that most of the scientific propaganda surrounding the criminalization of marijuana was smokescreen used to prop up a similar moral disapproval of its use.
