Batman Batman BeginsI may have been spoken about in a room at some stage, but never auditioned or screen-tested. Superman Superman Returnsyes, that came very close. And Bond Casino Royale came very close as well.
It's important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it's a great one to have because it's a wonderful opportunity.
I don't let the pressures get to me because that's going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman. Of course, the training has to be put in, but then you've to shed all the fat and keep the fat off.
And that's how you get an eight pack. But in your own head, you never look good enough. I had a big sense of pride. I was like, "No shading.
I don't want you to draw abs on me. I don't want you to put dirt in the right places. I just want to do it myself. I want to have the body. I suppose that when I'm building a character, it's usually related to what their family is like and who their parents are, as well as how I grew up - that nurture side. As much as he's not susceptible to the frailties of the human physical body, he's very much susceptible to the frailties of the human psyche, and that is what really keeps us in touch with someone else, makes us go, "I know your pain", or "Yeah, I've felt that happy before".
We've brought that to the character. There's always something wrong in the world. It just shifts depending on the generation. And it's always nice to have that fantasy where there's someone who's going to fix everything.
It's beating the odds, and that's been the same with mythological characters since the dawn of time, since we could think up gods. I have always loved sports and physical activities, but I have never worked out like this before. The program involved three stages. So I spent weeks eating nearly calories daily while lifting extremely heavy, to grow bigger. I love eating, so this stage was not difficult for me, even though I can understand that some people end up having enough of drinking protein shakes calories a glass.
At the end of this stage, I looked like a swole bodybuilder, and I felt like I was going to explode. The second stage was to lose fat to sculpt the muscles.
I had to do hours and hours of cardio to burn all the fat. And in the last stage, we targeted specific areas of the body. Mark helped me to make my abs bulge out and my muscles more defined. The workout program was designed according to the needs of the film. The only thing I did not like is the rowing machine, a machine that simulates the movement of rowing. I was coming off a movie where I had to be out of shape, and then I had gone through Christmas, so I was extra out of shape.
I just had to throw on the Lycra-like outfit, and that never looks good when it's basically a sort of sausage casing. Entering the acting world, it's a very lonely life. You all get so close, and then you promise to e-mail and text each other, but you never do. So that idea of being a sort of lone traveler I can definitely associate with.
And I am not afraid of saying it because I went through hell to get them. I'm just coming off of a day lean because there were various shirtless scenes and representing Superman in that physical way both efficiently and sufficiently for the fans. I'm sure you probably saw [the pictures] online over the past month.
To lean and to train and to work 12 hours a day is taxing on the willpower and the body, but the stuff [images and footage] we're getting is fantastic. And I get to wake up every morning and say, "I'm Superman.
Being in that kind of shape is something everyone should do at least once. It's a great feeling - and I don't mean that in an arrogant way. You go to the gym, train hard and learn how far you can push yourself. But the biggest change was the waist getting smaller. I genuinely had to throw my clothes out, since my shoulders are too big and my waist is too small. Everything just doesn't fit like it used to. I have never been this big. There are points during training where you could slow down and not beat your previous numbers or keep going and definitely puke.
There's a switch in your head where you say 'sod it' And you do it. I never collapse after a workout. You don't lie there like you are defeated, you stay standing.
But yeah, I guess there's a certain resemblance. So there is a responsibility. My brief for that was, "Look like a regular person, you look too fit. No push-ups, no sit-ups, just eat pizza and burgers and drink beer.
Henry Cavill Quotations
I got [my muscle definition] back and I plan on not losing it. I don't care what they offer me. As much as it hurts and painful as you are going through it, when you wake up in the morning and look at yourself in the mirror, you go "Okay!
This is why I am doing it. I had to be in a certain kind of shape, it was getting close to punch day, and I only had so long left to recondition the body. I was a bit stressed over that. That's been the most difficult thing, just maintaining that throughout.
Training related to Theseus is very much a body weight, cardiovascular type training which will give a very lean, and not bulky body. Whereas Superman is very much a weight lifting program with an awful lot of power workouts as well which creates a far larger broader body. I am twenty pounds heavier as Superman, but just as lean as Theseus. It is all down to personal preference in the end. It was staying in shape, without going on a killing spree, which was the really difficult thing.

It's a real challenge to keep yourself professional and not losing your temper while juggling all the training with it. That was the biggest challenge. Before work when you look in the mirror, or even before looking in the mirror you do feel different. A part of the character is more expressive in you. When you're in that kind of shape, I essentially was wearing my costume because I barely had a costume.
Yeah, it certainly does help. I'm not necessarily being shot in the best, most flattering of lights [in the leaked photos], but I put the hard prep work into it. It'll help when people see these photos beforehand, to sell them more on the character.
The best part is people are seeing all the work that's gone into it. I think I won a lot of people over. When you are doing it all for them, its wonderful to have people online going, "This is great, this is amazing, I can't wait.

I've learned that when you go to this kind of level, it's no longer about the physical, it's more about the mental. It's about the will power to push yourself into that very dark place. You're standing next to the precipice and you've got that weight on your shoulders and you're only halfway through the workout and you need to push yourself off and just go into that big fuck-off black hole and keep on pushing, and Immortals prepped me for that emotionally and mentally in the physical sense.
You should have seen me then. I was considerably bigger.
There are a couple of shots of me that I think, "My goodness. I was definitely a large chap. You set yourself up for too much criticism and speculation on the Internet. So, I'm keeping all my semi-nudity private for now. I need to do more.
I am not lean enough. I am not big enough. And he said, "Good. Because if you did, I wouldn't train you.
That was important to me. At that stage, I was at my very leanest, it was just after shooting my shirtless scenes [for Man of Steel]. At the very end of the [filming of Man of Steel], I put that suit on again for a photoshoot we were doing and I ripped the seams, the inside seams, just because my thighs were that much bigger. Because when you have a movie of that size [Man of Steel] come out it's human inclination to say 'I now know what that person is', and you have to fight against that as an actor.
Not that I am going to go crazy and play a meth-head transsexual guy, but I want the freedom to show the audience that I have range. The first time people saw me on a world scale was Superman and that's not necessarily what I do. Is a fan of video games.

He did not watch any previous Superman films or television shows while making Man Of Steel, using the comics solely as a reference for his portrayal of Superman. I just won the role of a lifetime and nobody's answering their bloody phones! It's important to do the role justice.
There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it's a great one to have because it's a wonderful opportunity. I don't let the pressures get to me because that's going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman.
