He still smokes though. I thought he might have quit if he trained that hard.

Smoking doesn't particularly seems to affect your workout results. Gerard Butler smoked throughout training and shooting of 300, didn't hurt him any.

Yeah it's not like he's sitting around all day smoking. Probably had a few at night after a drink. No big deal.

On a diet so strict, having a smoke is probably the one thing he can look forward to consuming, as it were. Either way, I'm glad his hard work paid off and he's definitely needed back. Would have been gutted for him if we had another Routh situation on our hands.

Does anyone else think Cavill is NOT getting any scripts? He finished shooting Man Of Steel in Jan 2012 and is shooting his next film after that in September 2013!

He basically did nothing for 20 months! Did he not get even a single film offer in that entire duration?

He claims he's gotten many scripts.

*shrugs*

He was up for Godzilla though.

I mean Henry will never be an A lister but unless he's difficult to work with personally, he'll always find work in some capacity. The problem is he is an average actor at best so minor roles or just being cast as the lead in B movies might be it for him. Which of course is not a bad gig

That doesn't mean he's not getting scripts or that he didn't get any between that time, maybe he just didn't want to accept any job offer yet.

Did he audition and lose that role to Aaron Johnson?

Even for U.N.C.L.E. he was a replacement casting. The lead cast of Cruise-Hammer-Vikander was set and then Cruise dropped out. So Cavill was offered the role at the last minute. If Cruise hadn't dropped out, Cavill might have directly shot Man Of Steel 2 from Feb 2013! He had booked a lead role in The Great Wall direct by Ed Zwick but that fell through.

Well, I think you have to consider that no one knew for sure whether MOS was going to be a hit or whether people would like him in the role until after the film came out. The only thing mainstream audiences knew him for before that was Immortals and The Tudors, and both of those aren't things everyone has seen.

I'm sure he'll get more offers in the future now that people actually know who he is.

Not that I know of. It seems WB liked him and considered as a leading role in one of their newer franchises.

As for UNCLE, I'm glad Cruise is out of that. I like him a lot but I'd rather he work on MI5(which is why he left) and I'm happy for Cavill landing the lead role and replacing Cruise.

To quote the 06/13 Details:

"Its been two years since principal photography began on Man of Steel - - 162 days of shooting, 16 months of post-production, giving Cavill plenty of time to consider if he will become the next big thing or the next Brandon Routh. At the moment he is jobless, reading scripts, looking for a project"

I agree and that is my worry if the rest of the leads are A listers in JL. Not that he can't step up but the best performance in JL is the actor likely to get th next solo CBM franchise try at WB. Ill be bummed if all the JL gets A list famous actors when the Superman role didn't.

As long as Cavill keeps topping lists like this, he'll get offers. He might have received plenty already; the guy just might be choosy about his projects. Additionally, as the new face of Superman, there may be roles WB doesn't want him to take on. I don't know that for sure, but we've all heard how WB supposedly only considered actors for Superman who were squeaky clean and all that.

I didn't realise him starring in The Great Wall had fallen through since it's still listed on his IMDB, what happened there?

The director left and funding fell through.

I'd heard that. Its like the whole project fell through. That happens.

My loyalty is to the character Superman and not the actor. Even if I personally like the actor.

In Batman vs Superman I want to see Cavill blow it away. I think playing opposite Affleck helps as Affleck started out a much weaker actor than he is now. I see Affleck helping Cavill step up his game.

That said, if Cavill can't, then I want someone new for JL cause the competition just won't be with Avengers 2, it will be among the JL actors to do the best job of the bunch so they get their trilogy of films. And I want the Superman actor to win that competition.

he wasn't going to get many offers till mos came out. that was some months ago. that's how he got to replace cruise, and that's why he's probably getting a lot more offers now.

Maybe in his contract renegotiation (I'm assuming there would have been one) he is going to be portraying Superman so frequently he may not be able to pursue other projects (eg, heading straight from S/B to MoS2 to JL).

Yes. And the Details article he's been looking for work since MOS finished shooting and had found none. It is what it is.

Nope. He will portray Superman 3 times. Originally it was supposed to be a trilogy. Now it will be MOS, WF and JL1. Assuming WB picks his option up for JL1. After that WB can re-negotiate a new ontact for hm to be in JL2 and JL3 or not. The ball is in WB's court as it always is with these option deals.
