November 10, 2011: Cavill Digs into Superman Mythos for "Man of Steel"

Man of Steel The Associated Press has published a lengthy article on Henry Cavill, looking at the road he's travelled on his journey towards stardom, his role in "Immortals" and being cast as Superman for "Man of Steel". Here's a portion of the article...

    In preparation for "Man of Steel," he dug deep into the Superman mythos and has even been monitoring the incessant Internet chatter about the film since his casting was first announced in January.

    "There are a lot of people who have dedicated their life to loving this character. ... Their opinion does matter," noted Cavill. "I've done my research on the source material. I have my opinions on the various bits and bobs, but sometimes there will be a little gem out there about one of the books, and I'll say to myself, 'Yeah. That's a good point.'"

    Cavill likened the "Man of Steel" version of the Superman story, written by screenwriter David S. Goyer and directed by "300" mastermind Zack Snyder, to "The New 52," DC Comics' dramatic revamping of the origins and costumes of many DC Universe titles and characters, including Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

    "When that came out, everyone went, 'Arrhhh! Everything's changed,'" exclaimed Cavill. "It's part of the evolution of the character. There is a modernization to it, and certainly our style is making him easier to associate with because it's pretty tough to associate with an invulnerable alien."
