With the incoming Man of Steel, Henry Cavill, appearing at last weekend's WonderCon event in connection to his upcoming Immortals release, it's very likely we'll be seeing some updates from Cavill on being the new Superman these next few days. Consider this one the first with MTV Movies sitting down with the actor to discuss what Henry is currently doing in preparation for the title role.

"I'm just picking out as much as I possibly can from the comic book history," says Henry Cavill on researching the character, "because, obviously, it's plastered across there as to who this man is and whatever part of his life you're playing; whatever part of his ultimate journey you're playing, you just need to put into either the building aspects, the building blocks to how he ends up. All those key characteristics that are carried through."

The website also asked the actor on the recent casting of Amy Adams as his working partner, Lois Lane, and what he thought of the age gap between the two stars. For his part, he dismissed it as happenstance and confirmed a decent screen test worked well.

"Yes, there was a screen test and she's a fantastic actress. Very talented. I'm looking forward to working with her," explains Cavill. "To be honest, that's [age gap] a question for the director. But, happenstance. I don't think it matters at all."

Watch the video down below and read the story here.

The film's current stars include Cavill, Adams, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. Director Zack Snyder is in charge at the helm, based on a screenplay by writing duo David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. Batman helmer Christopher Nolan is executive producing.

Superman will fly into theaters December 2012.

Saw a mock up of caville in the blue and red on the net today and he actually looks awesome (at least in the pic).  Lot's of rumours on line including one potential script where Lois' military dad builds Metallo to counter Supermans awesome power.  Not sure what to believe, but here's hoping we see Supes in all his comic book glory throwing down with a truly worthy villain....

PS... anybody know why I can't post comments from my iPad???

I was jokingly thinking that the "research" he was doing was jumping off of high things, trying to lift cars, seeing if he can stand in front of a gun firing without flinching.

This is actually the first video I've seen of him. From pics he seemed right and he does moving and talking. Needs to bulk up though.

Madmaniac I don't know why you can't comment on an iPad. When I had an iPhone I did it a couple of times.

This is the first time I have heard this guy speak and that is one powerful voice he has. I think he is going to be really good as Superman/Clark Kent. If that Mentallo rumor is true by the way I would be so happy. No Lex Luthor please, great character but gimmie some other great rouges from Supes gallery, especially one that can take a punch from the Man of Steel.

Madmaniac, prolly an apple restriction. They only want you to go to apple approved sites ;)

Superfan... I've tried to post the link twice and it never shows up... so I'll try this... go to nerdbastardsdotcom... just make the dot a .

madmanic999 4/6/2011 1:38:02 PM

how... if you have an address in your post it doesn't post... how 'paranoid" of you mania

Wiseguy 4/6/2011 2:22:41 PM

It isn't paranoia madmanic, it was to stop all the spammers that were fucking up the site a couple of months ago

As far as the I-pad I don't know for sure but I know a buddy told me he had problems with some sites due to apple's refusal to use Flash. From my understanding Flash is used for more than video so maybe that has something to do with your problem. Total guess on my part though
