Henry Cavill: Outsourced Superhero for 'Details' Feature!

Henry Cavill is one suave guy in this new feature from Details magazine’s Hollywood Mavericks issue.

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.”

    Love him ! But I wish they hadn’t airbrushed him and made him up like that; he’s already pretty, trying to make him look prettier makes him look like a ken doll. Still swoon worthy though.

    Matt Bomer is TOO OLD for Fifty Shades of Grey, when people are going to understand this???…Matt can’t play a 28 years old guy in the upcoming 4 years when he’s already 36 years old.
    And sorry but this trilogy isn’t crap, read it before judging, it’s a great novel, I love books and I don’t read cheap!!
    And Henry needs to play all genres and capture all the public, even those who loves a great love story movie!

    LOL This “sarah” is one of those girly Bomer gay fans. Who wants Gay Christian Grey? Only gays and fat women who hate straight guys!

    Love Henry but he really needs to start choosing real dramatic roles if he wants to be a serious actor. Superman never works for actors and his other characters have been forgettable in forgettable films. Please choose wisely Henry my love.

    What a disgusting comment! You know what they say, opinions are like asses, everybody has one! Get a life and stop calling people you’ve never even seen names! From your comment, I bet your mother has a loud bark…

    So handsome! Says:

    Harry is just so incredibly handsome! But why everytime he is on this site Fifty Shades has to come up? Besides what does being gay have to do with playing a character? An actor is an actor no matter his real life sexual preferences. Can’t believe how stupid people can be. It’s hard to get the big picture when you have such a small screen, right?
