Talking about beefing up one's physique and expressing happiness at donning a superhero's outfit is hardly a new development from Hollywood but as we all wait patiently see a glimpse of Henry Cavill in his new Superman outfit, it's something that apparently needs to be said from the actor to TotalFilm.

When asked about his training regimen, Cavill says "I'm on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs… you’ve gotta keep your hunger levels going. I’m training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman."

He also adds that putting on that Superman outfit for the first time made it as real as ever from a mental standpoint.

"It’s extremely cool. There's no other feeling like it. They just put it on, I turned around and look in the mirror and you can’t really play it cool – you sort of guffaw and laugh. I thought ‘OK, holy hell, this is real, it’s not a joke anymore. This is it…you’re doing it, you’re right in the middle of it.’"

Check out the rest of the interview here.

Zack Snyder is currently directing the production in Illinois, based from a screenplay by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. It stars Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne.

Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14, 2013.

I wish I could afford to eat like that. LOL

Yeah, he can eat like that with a private cheif and a personal trainer.  If we all had that kind of treatment and worked hard we could ALL look like Superman.

I'm glad he is bulking up a little. I was kinda pissed that Routh was buffer in Scott Pilgrim then he was in Superman. I think anyone would feel the same way putting on the outfit knowing you are going to be the Big S on the big screen soon. 

Hey does anyone know where Tara ran off too? I am sure we all missed her interviews at SDCC with the cosplayers this year and her movie reviews.
