In regards to the diet and training he's had to do to get in shape for the role he said:
"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."
Cavill said putting on the Superman costume was "Extremely cool. There's no other feeling like it.
"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.'"
Unable to give details on the movie's script or story, Cavill did confirmed that he's focusing on "being as true as I can be to the original character and who the character is."
