In a new exclusive interview with Total Film magazine (issue #204, April 2013 edition), actor Henry Cavill talks about his role as the “Man of Steel“. Most interestingly, he gushes about wearing the famous blue tights and red cape:
“I love wearing the suit! You put it on every morning and you feel fantastic. I mean, you’re wearing a Superman suit, for goodness sake!”
Putting on the suit is not as easy as it looks. It requires a team to make sure the suit fits and looks right on the actor everyday of the shoot. Cavill said:
“It took the team about 15 minutes each day. They struggled hard… let’s just say we became very close!”
Total Film magazine Issue #204 goes on sale today. Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder, is slated for a June 14, 2013 release. The film is produced by Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight series) and takes on a more serious approach than previous Superman films. Zack Snyder intends for Superman to be perceived by society as if Earth has finally made contact with an extra-terrestrial race because that is what Superman is – an alien. Recent rumors have been circulating that “Man Of Steel” may be the first of a trilogy, all of course depends on its success. A Batman Reboot is also rumored to be considered for the near future, possibly preceding the “Justice League” film.
