Just a few weeks after Warner Bros. Pictures officially announced their next Superman---with the casting of Henry Cavill as the title role---Entertainment Weekly is preparing their next cover shoot to hit the market. You guessed it. It's the new Man of Steel, with Cavill gracing the cover. The actor who was once up for the role back before Brandon Routh nabbed the part for Bryan Singer's Superman Return sat down with the popular magazine to discuss his thoughts on officially becoming the iconic superhero.

“All I could think was: Oh, god. They’re going to look at me and go ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’ The actor inside me was going: You’re not ready! You’re not ready!” says Cavill.

For his part, director Snyder chimed in with other thoughts:

“He walked out, and no one laughed,” says the director. “Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go ‘Wow.’ Okay: This was Superman.’”

Check out some other thoughts from the upcoming EW issue here.

With a December 2012 release date in mind, director Zack Snyder in charge of bringing the new Superman to cinematic life based on a screenplay by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. His brother, Batman director Christopher Nolan, is on board as producer and is overseeing the development.

I want to know which actors they laughed at.

Still not sure about this cat but I remain optimistic since Snyder is involved and Cavill seems to be the guy right now. His name just keeps popping up

Sounds like Cavill had a shred of common sense here. Let's hope he does a good job.

Why can't Hollywood find one bifg jacked dude who can act to play Supes... JUST ONE GODDAMN IT!  Don't care what anyone here thinks, Brandon Roth made a cool Christopher Reeve, but looked like a little bitch in the tights, I want a BIG TOUGH LOOKING SUPES....Now this buy, might be able to pull it off, hell look at Hugh Jackman between Wolverine rolls, he he gets it.  Now if this guy works out, we just hope that we get to see Supes tear ass on a REAL supervillain... I do not want to spend another two hours plus in a theater watching supes save bystanders, reccue puppies and thwart Lex's crazy land grab schemes... I want a throwdown goddamn it!  but I digress.

I've said it before, but nobody listen, yeah the comic Supes is Super-muscular, but he is one of the few characters that DOESN'T need the muscle, his power comes from the radiation of our sun, not now many reps he can do!

BunyonSnipe 2/17/2011 3:41:57 PM

And with his god-like powers, getting even slightly ripped would be almost impossible...


Actually who cares, make him pile on the punds, DO IT!

What I WANT to see is a working DC Universe, complete with numerous potential villains for the future, set them up in the background so they can just appear in the sequels... Toyman, Metallo, Brainiac, with Luthor covertly plotting from his position as US President...

Superman isn't even really that Musclular in comics. He's cut and toned, but ussually pretty normal sized (for comics reality) guy. He's only portrayed as Really big and muscular when an artist with that kind of style like McGuinnes draws him.

Bunyon is right he's not strong because of his muscles, he's strong because he's a solar battery. Which means in theory he could have the least amount of muscles of any superhero.

Superman would look STUPID if they got a beefcake bodybuilder to play him.
