In the action movie Immortals, Henry Cavill plays Theseus, a peasant chosen by the Gods to defend the people against a horrible human tyrant. You might first have seen the gorgeous Henry giving King Henry the Eighth a run for a record at romancing the court ladies as hot Charles Brandon in the TV series The Tudors. Next year, you can watch him as Superman in Man of Steel. We’re asking smokin’ hot Henry about buffing up for Immortals, skimpy costumes and his take on playing fantasy heroes.

LOS ANGELES — So much for the days when all it took was a phone booth and a pair of glasses to keep Superman a secret. Consider the Vancouver set of Man of Steel, the reboot of the comic-book mythos directed by Zack Snyder (300) and produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) that stars British actor Henry Cavill.
Total Film has spoken exclusively to Henry Cavill about his role as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel. The in-demand Brit was keen to talk up the super-diet he’s consuming in his efforts to get the body of Krypton’s favourite son: “I’m on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve gotta keep your hunger levels going. I’m training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.”
On July 23rd, Relativity Media brought the cast of Immortals and director Tarsem Singh to the 2011 Comic Con to show off new footage from the 3D swords and sorcerers epic and talk to potential ticket buyers about the film's upcoming November 11, 2011 release. Immortals stars the next Superman, Henry Cavill, as Theseus, a peasant chosen by the gods to lead the battle against the evil King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). Cavill was on hand to discuss the film, along with his co-stars Kellan Lutz (Poseidon), Stephen Dorff (Stavros), Luke Evans (Zeus), and Freida Pinto (Phaedra).
Movieline caught up with future Superman Henry Cavill Saturday at WonderCon, where he's scheduled to present footage from his upcoming Greek hero pic Immortals. More on his turn as the mud-speckled Greek hero Theseus to come; first, Cavill divulged details of how he's currently training to become the Man of Steel, how he's shaping his Supes body differently from his ab-tastic Immortals physique, and how his inner geek comes out as costume tests progress.

Maybe you've heard of him as the Duke of Suffolk in The Tudors, the TV series based on the life of Henry VIII. Now, Henry Cavill comes back to film under the direction of Woody Allen, in Whatever Works, a New York based Comedy, starring: Larry David, Evan Rachel Wood and Patricia Clarkson.
He is king Henry VIII’s brother-in-law, the lover of Woody Allen’s new muse and is about to become a Greek God. Successively approached for the roles of Batman, Superman and James Bond, he was nicknamed “the most unlucky actor in Hollywood” after losing the battle for these roles, with the series The Tudors and new roles on big screen, fortune seems finally to smile on him. It’s with simplicity, this 26-years-old rising star comes back to his failures with lucidity, comments his successes with passion and confides his philosophy about cinema.
Woody Allen has a knack for finding fresh faces The director cast Rebecca Hall as Cristina's acerbic, conservative pal in last year's Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and she earned a Golden Globe nomination. Mira Sorvino was no household name when she co-starred in Allen's 1995 comedy Mighty Aphrodite, which won her a supporting-actress Oscar. And 1979's Manhattan was only the third movie for Mariel Hemingway, who played Allen's high school love. Enter Allen's latest find: Henry Cavill.
