Here’s a glimpse of Henry Cavill dressed as Superman for Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. At first, I was not pleased with the change from Brandon Routh, but Henry should make a good Man of Steel.
Notice I said good… I don’t know if I’m totally sold yet. Hopefully more pictures will do the trick. By the way, Henry talked to Total Film about his workout routine in preparation for the movie:
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.
On suiting up:
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.
