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.”

    No man reads that shit.

  • Elle


  • Sarah

    I’m sorry but he is no Matt Bomer…he should stay wayyyyy out of Fifty Shades of Grey…

  • Clooney

    Both Matt and Henry are too good to waste time on this stuff!

  • lori

    50 shades of garbage. This will be a career ruin’er like show girls.

  • Denise

    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.

  • BettyBoo

    Well HELLO there gorgeous. So glad we’re about to see more of him now with his blockbuster movie coming out. I can’t wait to see Superman- Man of Steel, loved him ever since the Tudors.

  • Reba

    Not only is he gorgeous, he plays characters with substance. One to watch:)

  • Willa

    Bomer is GAY. Say no more.

  • doll

    @Willa: he and henry much alike in so many ways. thats what makes them the most beautiful men.

  • laly


  • Isabella

    Oh my God! he’s soooo gorgeous! and proper :) I don’t like he’s with Gina Carano, she’s so tacky… :-/

  • Ale


    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!

  • boavlanb

    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!

  • LOL

    @boavlanb: Ouch!

  • henrylvr

    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.

  • Eww


    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!

    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?

  • Bottomed Bomer

    @Sarah: Gay Christian Grey? Who are you, Justin Bieber? *vomitting*

  • Teri

    So Henry is a top or bottom? Hard to decide so maybe versatile.

  • sigh

    It seems like Matt Bomer fans are trolling…..on Henry’s thread. AGAIN.

  • Sarah


    You can all suck Matt Bomer’s dikc you pathetic you wastes of human breath…and boavland you can eat his shiiit too while you’re at it…

  • Miss

    @Sarah: Your curse sounds like a man/gay. Not a regular girl.

  • Miss

    …it’s interesting to see what Matt Bomer fangirls like. suck dikc, shiit, and poor English grammar. Busy trolls.

  • Sarah


    Hahaha poor English grammar? You think i wrote dikc wrong because I’m stupid, but the stupid one is actually you cause you don’t know JJ doesn’t post the curse words…so who is the busy troll now, Miss? You suck, so it’s seems you’re really good at it, better stick to sucking dikcs rather than pretending to know so much when in fact it’s the opposite…

  • LOL

    @Sarah: Your grammar, not spelling. This becomes really pathetic…

  • Sarah


    Oh ok…then by all means, do enlighten me! What exactly was poor English grammar?

  • Sissy

    Too late to learn how to talk to respectful people since you showed your parents’ background: “suck dikc”, “eat shiit ” “Sarah”? LOL

  • yuck!

    So this ‘Sarah’ thing turned out to be a troll indeed. It was a very strange comment from the beginning! haha

  • chockie

    @lori: I agree.. I am so ova 50 sogs milking… wish they would just say who it is and get it ova with… but I don’t want Henry for it.. think more Justin Timberlake
