Imagine the scene: you’re sit, playing your online game with friends, “at that” moment of the game that if you blink, you die,your phone rings. Ring, Ring, Ring and when you, see: SURPRISE!!! it’s Zack Snyder calling to say that YOU are the new SUPERMAN.
It’s not a movie scene, the story is real. It happened to Henry Cavill.Sunday, January 30, 2011, Snyder gave an official statement about: “In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is best known and revered character of all time, and I’m very honored to be part of his return to the movies. I also joined Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers to announce that Henry has been cast. He’s the perfect choice to wear the cape and the S on the chest.’’
Cavill surpassed names like Joe Manganiello (“True blood”) and Jon Hamm (“Mad men”) for the paper. The tests were done in Los Angeles, New York and London between November and December with actors between 28 and 32 years in 2010. In 2011, Cavill was the favorite from the start and was called to meet Snyder in January but did not know of his announcement.
By the time he had finished filming The cold light of the day. Eight years later, he immortalized his character getting recognition from the fans and coworkers. There’s a big appeal from Superman fans asking him back in Man of Steel 2. On twitter a hashtag HenryCavillisOurSuperman was among the first in the world and national trend. was among the first in the world and national trend.
