Cavill & Snyder Talk Superman In EW Magazine!

on Thursday, February 17, 2011

Henry Cavill briefly spoke about his audition for the role. He said that he actually got to wear a replica Superman suit of Christopher Reeves suit from the original franchise.
Here's what he said in the article: "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!"
Zach Snyder also discussed the new film. Snyder said that he loved Cavill the minute he saw him in the suit.
Here's what he said in the article as well: "If you can put on that suit and pull it off, that's an awesome achievement. 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.'"
