He’s donning the body suit, the famous “S” symbol and the red cape. Henry Cavill is about to break through as Hollywood’s hottest A-lister (and hunk) in Man of Steel. Check out this behind-the-scenes video for an intimate look at what it took for Cavill, director Zack Snyder and cast to bring this most beloved superhero back on the big screen.

If you don’t know Henry Cavill yet, you will. What better way to break into Hollywood’s most elite club of A-listers than to play the ultimate superhero himself: Superman.

In Man of Steel a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

“In the world of Super Heroes, Superman is the completely uncompromising figure who exists to represent the best that all of us can be,” says director Zack Snyder. “He is the ideal; he’s what we strive for, that magical, golden god, the kind of icon that has extended beyond the comics world and into all of popular culture.”

 So why bring him back onscreen? According to British hunk Cavill, Superman is a figure that never gets old and appeals to every generation.“Superman is one of the truly special figures man has created throughout history,” Cavill says of the superhero. “He stands for hope, for the ability to conquer adversity against all odds. That’s something we can always hold onto, no matter where we are in life or what’s going on in the world. We will always face hardships in one way or another, and therefore hope will always play a significant part in our lives. To take on that mantle of hope as Superman was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”


In this video feature, Cavill, director Zack Snyder, Amy Adams and the cast and crew give you the inside scoop on remaking this epic tale and how they’ve modernized the world’s most recognizable superhero.

Man of Steel opens June 14 and stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and  Russell Crowe.
