    Maybe Henry will learn to loosen up by then. Watching him in superman was as exciting as watching grass grow. I could hardly believe I was looking at a guy that handsome and thinking, “What a bore.” In interviews his personality shows. Don’t know what happened on the Man Of Steel set. Maybe it was too much pressure.

    They just didn’t want to compete with the mega successful movie…AVENGERS 2. They know they’d lose out. Marvel would own DC!

    Basically, there Is only one Superman, and this is Henry Cavill. Even if it was in 2020, we are gonna wait.

    Henry Cavill goes often in gay clubs will certainly have many gay friends? Henry is not very tall 6’1 ‘, when he was a boy he was fat but thanks to hours spent in the gym has lost weight!
