Henry Cavill: Outsourced Superhero for 'Details' Feature!
Here’s what the 29-year-old Man of Steel actor, who is highlighted as the Outsourced Superhero, had to share with the mag:
On playing Superman: “I suppose it’s a fluke…It’s about who looks right for the character and for the generation it’s being cast for. If you only look at the American market, you’re narrowing down your options an awful lot. The point of acting is to pretend you’re someone else and sell a story. Chris Hemsworth is an Australian man, not a god from Asgaard. It would be even more fluke-y if every person who was playing a superhero was American.”
On the Fifty Shades of Grey casting rumors: “Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made…it would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel.”
On getting his big break a bit later: “Who’s to say I’d have handled this any differently at 22? But I got to make my mistakes and do my silly stuff without having a camera pointed at me in secret.”
