The only guy who can get away with (Super)man-spreading — Sexy Brit Man of Steel Henry Cavill — kicks it cape-free this summer as Napoleon Solo in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
"Napoleon is more of a ladies' man than Superman is. I'm not quite as earnest as Superman, not quite as much of a rogue as Solo."
ON THE ROCKS
"I'd be impressed if a girl drank Jack and Cokes with me … and tried to keep up!"
"You can't make everyone happy. And someone shouting at you doesn't mean you're wrong. What matters is maintaining your integrity."
TOTAL SUCKER FOR…
"Confident women. The world is filled with people uncomfortable in their skin. So someone who hasn't got a front on is very attractive. I don't date much. I'm more of a relationship guy."
"I was a pretty awkward kid and really didn't have girls fancying me. My first kiss was outside a dance when I was 12, and it was one snog and out!"
"When I go somewhere where there's music playing, I'm not the guy who runs to the dance floor, I find it awkward. But after a few drinks, I definitely enjoy a dance. Is it a strength or a weakness? I don't know, I've been told some good things from time to time, but I'm no John Travolta by any means."
"My pet's name is Kal. Not Kal El, like Superman, just Kal. He's an informal dog."
"Strong women are nothing new for the comic book world. I'm glad they are being represented a bit more in film and on TV. Wonder Woman has been around forever, she is an incredibly strong character. She can go toe-to-toe with Superman sometimes."
SUPERMAN'S LOBSTER: LOIS LANE OR WONDER WOMAN
"This is a very long discussion because there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered. I mean who is better for a super-powered alien, a human or a goddess? Yes, the goddess can do all the normal things, which we would think are normal in a relationship, and not have any fear of Superman. But you also need to have that baseline of humanity, which Lois provides. And literally keeps his feet on the ground, keeps him down to earth. So that's more of a debate than an answer."
"I watched a TV show recently that I thought was absolutely spectacular: Outlander. It's so good I watched it from beginning to end in almost one night. I couldn't stop. Jamie is a Scottish Superman, for sure!
BOXERS OR BRIEFS UNDER THAT CAPE?
"Superman is a polite Kansas boy and would never tell you either way. It would be un-gentlemanly to discuss."
