  • MangerBouger

    He looks so different from what I have fantasized lol

  • tish

    well, hello handsome!

  • CJLOVE23

    Soooo hot! He was supposed to be Edward Cullen but I think this suits him (no pun intended) much better!!! Can’t wait! The last Superman movie was terrible!

  • ctwg

    It’s Lois Lane not ‘Louis” and they have never pick the right actress to play her in all the Superman movies, Amy Adams is pretty but she is not Lois Lane.

  • mikaela

    i guess it’s just not the best photo… but Henry is still HOTTT :)

  • miss infamous

    another Superman movie??! ((rolls eyes))

  • catchy

    what the hell did they do to his handsome face?

  • john

    @ctwg i agree about amy adams being a bad lois lane choice… it seems like they were sooo excited about securing such a top notch actress that they didnt care that she just doesnt seem like lois..

  • Tad

    Agree, another superman or super hero movie – Snore! Hope he escapes the superman role curse, usually a career downer. He’s cute though but better casting choices could have been made.

  • laverdadduele

    Whatever…Christopher Reeve will always be the one and only Superman.

  • renren


    Now that’s what I’m talkin about!

    Henry Cavill –is beyond!

    Loved him as Charles Brandon on Tudors..and I LOVE–LOVE his hair!!


  • Oprah

    Baaaaaaaad choice. Matthew Bomer or Jon Hamm would’ve made a much better choice than this guy.

  • luvd80s2

    No not really!

  • Gabby

    HE LOOKS AMAZING!! This is the first time I’ve ever been excited about anything Superman-related (with the exception of Smallville and the cartoon when I was younger).

  • Gabby


    Well luckily Amy Adams is a great actress, so even if she doesn’t seem like Lois, I’m sure she’s more than capable of ACTING like her.

  • from Turkey…

    yes he does not look like Henry but he is Henry
    his style looks really good for me
    he is a great choice for Superman.although this is the first pic,I am very proud of Henry
    GO HENRY!!!

  • renren


    I agree with you about Christopher Reeve. I REALLY loved him as Superman and in that movie with Jane Seymour where he time travelled…I miss him.

    But somehow I think he would approve of Henry Cavill. Henry really embodies the look in these pictures and he was so believvable and likable in Tudors. Can’t wait to see how he gets rids of accent.

    I like brandon Routh alot too..but I can see why the producers chose Henry. And as much as I like Joe Manganiello –Alcide in TB– I think this is the better choice.

    I hope it’s a hit for him…anyone catch his commericals in UK…colonge…damn he is smoking hot!

    Obviously, a padded suit!

    superman — british, spiderman — british, batman — british….NO THANK YOU sick and tired of it!

  • http://s kraffer


    Yeah well if you are sick of great actors making good movies, i guess its better you have your rubbish american actors like george ‘i cant act ‘ clooney playing batman…wow he was awesome in batman and robin..did you see that one…?? And Brandon Routh…. american…(its wasnt his fault) but rubbish all american singer routh combination…. and spiderman…mmmm did you see spidey 3??? aall american and complete flop… Bale is the best actor alive… , this superman will at least 10000000% be better than the terrible superman returns, because of chris (british) nolan …..and henry cavil…look at the difference…thats a supees you dont mess with…. Dude get a life…dont hate on brits cos we jst do it better….including your girls..

  • Ash

    Oh no.

  • LaterGater

    Why does Superman look like he is 38 years old? WTF? And he has really short arms.

  • William

    American actors, both screen and stage, set the world standard for acting. Case closed. Agree on Hamm and Bomer being better choices but this will be a mediocre success anyway so good for them they are not attached to it.

  • wtf?

    big fan of Zack Snyder, will go to see this on that basis alone, Henry is just the icing on the cake!

  • meeeeeee

    Something about him looks off…for the superman role. He kinda look like a buff Marc Anthony. lol He just doesn’t have the classic superman feautres… neither did Dean Cain (both men are handsome ob). And I agree that Amy Adams doesn’t strike me as a Lois Lane. Kate Beckinsale might’ve been a better choice.

    WOW! Laurence Fishburne as Perry White!!!

    I didn’t think Superman Returns was bad – they were trying to keep the superman comic book Cheesy-ness. I’m excited to see what they do with this more realistic cut.
