Henry Cavill on the Importance of Being Superman
Henry Cavill, who will play Superman in next year’s Man of Steel, recently spoke to Cineplex about playing the iconic character.
On Bringing Superman into the Modern Era: “…it’s a modernization of the character and a very realistic view of one, obviously, very fantastic individual. “It’s an unreal situation, but it’s approached from a very practical viewpoint. We wanted to make the character easier to identify with.”
On the Pressures of Playing Superman: “It’s important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it’s a great one to have because it’s a wonderful opportunity. I don’t let the pressures get to me because that’s going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman.”
Man of Steel comes out June 14, 2013.
