Henry Cavill is one of the greatest performers in the history of Hollywood. He is an outstanding entertainer and has inspired tons of individuals worldwide. Undoubtedly, Henry’s acting skills are unmatched, and every role he plays becomes a memorable one. Whether it is the Geralt of Rivia in the Witcher or Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes, Cavill never fails to amaze us with his versatility. However, the British actor first proved himself as Clark Kent, a.k.a Superman, in the 2013 film, The Man Of Steel. While his incredible performance in Man of Steel got him fame, Cavill soon became every director’s first choice for the lead role. But why did Zack Snyder choose Henry Cavill for The Man of Steel?
Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman is inarguably one of the most popular superhero of our generation . Even though the Mission Impossible: Fallout actor is popular for his jacked appearance, did director Zack Snyder really chose Henry Cavill to play Superman for his innocence? Let us find out.
Why did Zack Snyder choose Henry Cavill for the Man of Steel?
Henry Cavill, he has got the looks and he has got the physique. Moreover he is also an incredible actor. But, director Zack Snyder had another reason to cast the Enola Holmes actor in his film. Previously, in one of his appearances the Justice League director revealed why he chose Henry for Clark Kent and it is not for his good looks. The Army of the Dead director revealed, “But in the end, I think Henry just has this innocence. Superman needs the teeniest bit of that. Not to be overt, but you like it to be there ever so slightly.”
Furthermore, Zack added how Cavill’s muscular physique and good looks were an added bonus. Snyder also explained how since Superman is from Kansas, a bit of innocence was a pre-requisite for the role. Superman is certainly a fan-favorite character and seeing Cavill put on his Kryptonian suit again would be a dream come true for all DC extended universe fans. Interestingly, the Geralt of Rivia also revealed how he is extremely determined to redeem Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League 2 if it ever happens.
Although Zack Snyder is no longer a part of DCEU, it would surely be exciting to see him team up with Henry Cavill again. What are your thoughts on the issue? Do let us know in the comments below.
