    I don't think any of the other movies playing this weekend did that well either though I don't think Immortals will have strong legs. The real test will be the international box office and so far it's doing alright.

    I was already sold on Henry Cavill. I'm on record already as being a big fan of Blood Creek. But I just saw Immortals, and while his character was very shallow, and as such, there wasn't too terrible much for him to do dramatically, he showed his physical presence in spades. This guy is the real deal. He's going to OWN this role.

    Sounds like he considers Clark to be the disguise and Superman as the real identity. Which is correct.

    But he also says they are the same person. I took it as "Metropolis Clark" is a disguise.

    I wonder how different "Metropolis Clark" will be to the Clark we see in Smallville or Alaska etc.

    I thought everything he said was brilliant, and shows how much he understands the character, and how to approach portraying him.

    Sounds to me as if he were spitting in the face of Shuster and Siegel. :oldrazz:

    Watch, "you know who" will be in here soon spouting off about how Snyder doesn't get it and is totally disrespecting Shuster and Siegel.

    Why?

    Cavill just basically told us that in this interpretation Superman (or Kal-el, however you want to see it) is the real person.

    Which is precisely how Shuster and Siegel concieved him.

    I would think Kuro will be incredibly happy about it...

    I know that, but he just seems to find something wrong in everything that is said or done.

    Kurosawa has conceded on many points before.

    I understand that he is usually the voice of the pedant... But he's not insane.

    This is obviously very good news for someone on this side of the 'who's real?' Arguement.

    The news makes me happy, and I'm not religiously on either side. But what he said is basicallly exactly what I've been saying on the characterisation thread for weeks.

    IMO that is a PERFECT way of putting it.

    We could have used Cavill over in that thread :p

    Your right, he does, but that just makes his posts all that more fun to read!


    No offence to Mr K, he's just hard to please, that's all. :)

    I'm liking what I'm hearing. Now I know Cavill can talk the talk, but can he walk the walk. Immortals was a good indicator that he potentially could.

    I'm guessing he's flyign the fly as we type, he's probably hanging from the rafters right now along with Zod crashing into one another! :D


    Hey, Michael Shannon did say most of his shooting is in November :awesome:

    It seems as if Henry Cavill has the same sort of humility about being Superman that Chris Reeve had. I like that.

    When Cavill is saying that one is disguise, I assume that he is referring to Metropolis Clark Kent who works as a reporter in Daily Planet.

    It is always good to know that Cavill has been reading so many Superman stories, especially Red Son, Death Of Superman and Superman Earth One.

    I think Superman can be divided into three personalities, the true farm boy Clark, Metropolis reporter Clark Kent and Man of Steel. I liked what Singer said in an interview -

    :D

    I suppose there is zero chance of us seeing any sneak set pics of that though, is there?

    Totally. It's a role he's wanted for such a long time, and I think he sees it as just as much of a dream come true as we fans do. He's a perfect fit. :)

    Particularly love this line:

    Yup, and now I've gone back to the impulse to yell out 'oh I just LOVE him' in a squealy girly voice again. :p

    You're partially correct. Clark the reporter is a disguise. Clark, from Smallville, is not.

    Edit: I should have read the rest of the thread......
