Superman Henry Cavill Covers Entertainment Weekly

We learned a few weeks ago that Henry Cavill is the next in line to don Superman's cape, which landed him a spot on our list of hot Brits to watch. The latest cover of Entertainment Weekly shows the superhero of tomorrow somewhere between Clark Kent and the Man of Steel, featuring Cavill in the iconic t-shirt under his leather jacket. He looks ready for action to me, but believe it or not, Cavill had more doubts about landing the role than director Zack Snyder did. Here's more:

  • Cavill on trying on the suit: "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!"
  • Snyder on how he knew Cavill was the one: "He walked out, and no one laughed. 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."
